One of my earliest beauty memories is sitting at the back of the classroom and digging deep into my school bag to find my ultimate 90s beauty companion - clear lipgloss.
I was obsessed with it. I'd go through tubes and tubes of the stuff, buying a new one every few weeks with my ever so precious £5 weekend pocket money. Whether it was a tube, pot or rollerball, if I didn't have it I wanted it. It made me feel like a rebel, sticking two fingers up to the no-make up rule, thinking I could fool the teachers with my glistening pout. It didn't work so well on the day I tried purple mascara for the first time, but that's a whole other story.
My ultimate favourite clear lipgloss was the Bourjois Effet 3D, closely followed by the L'Oreal Glam Shine pot. And I always remember being envious of those who could afford Dior's Addict Ultra Gloss.
But where has my old beauty friend gone? Why have I neglected it all these years?
It wasn't until I saw someone on the tube applying the gloss of days gone by that I found myself feeling nostalgic.
Ladies, I think it's time for a clear lipgloss revival. Because really, what's not to love?
