“On Wednesdays, we wear pink.”

It’s one of the most-quoted lines from Mean Girls, and Cate McNabb Cosmetics captures the essence of popularity-pink in its “Wednesday Pink” Lip Gloss.

(Are you wearing pink today?! Or at least some form of a cat eye?)

{Cate McNabb Cosmetics sent me a sample of its lip gloss in “Wednesday Pink” to review. It costs $16 for a 0.16-ounce tube. Blue Modern Cat Eye Metallic Temple Sunglasses c/o ICU Eyewear.}

A smooth, non-sticky formula, Cate McNabb Lip Gloss in “Wednesday Pink” is made with soothing shea butter and jojoba oil to hydrate your pout while delivering a powerful yet playful shade of mauve-pink.

Glossy, but not overly shiny, Cate McNabb Lip Gloss is youthful without looking young.

“Wednesday Pink” can almost pass for a pale violet, but its warm undertones — topped off with a glimmer of golden mica — keep it from being too serious of a purple; “Pale Mauve” is probably the best call for this pretty lip gloss.

Besides the pretty color — which isn’t too subtle, yet isn’t too heavy — I adore the boxy edges of Cate McNabb’s lip gloss packaging.

Distinct corners make glosses easier to grip, and I for one appreciate not worrying about my makeup rolling around on my vanity when I have everything spread out in the morning.

But aside from the smart packaging, let’s take a look at what’s inside Cate McNabb Lip Gloss.

Cate McNabb Cosmetics is also cruelty-free (and I never test my beauty booty on Anya — she’s naturally beautiful!); perhaps you’ll be seeing more of this line in some of our favorite vegan and cruelty-free subscription boxes?

I sure would love to!

My eyes are on “Belle Red” and “Face It Fuschia” next — which means, yeap, Cate McNabb Cosmetics Lip Glosses are on my repurchase list!
