Although I’m fond of matte lipsticks, lip glosses are the ones that make my heart happy! Not only are they infinitely less drying but are also the easiest tools to use when you want to create a statement. If you are looking to buy one (or more) glosses, here are 7 worthy contenders.
In my opinion, Rihanna is the one responsible for making glosses come back into fashion. Her line of Gloss Bombs leave a shimmery coat of colour behind and make any pout look more alluring. Use them alone or layer them over a lipstick – either way, they will keep the spotlight firmly on your lips.
With its mirror-like shine and plumping effect, this formula is the one to go for when you need drama. The shade range veers from nudes and pinks, to orange and coral; and keeps lips hydrated for up to 6 hours. Plus, the tube looks very chic and classy!
These tubes are a major throwback to my school days. The squeezable tube is perfect for girls on-the-go and delivers a lacquered finish unlike any other. I love using ‘Simmer’, which is a peachy-pink shade, when I’m feeling nostalgic.
These are probably one of the more affordable lip glosses on this list, but they aren’t lacking in quality at all! In a single swipe you can get a pigmented coat of colour and oodles of crystal-like shine on your lips.
On the other end of the price spectrum are these luxurious lip glosses. Lustrous, non-sticky and seductive, each shade of this range is pure magic. I’ve got my eyes on ‘Blitz Gold’, a pure yellow gold, and ‘Twilo’, which is a peppy coral.
Frustrated by the lack of shades in lip glosses? MAC has your back. This line of lip glasses come in quite a wide variety of hues and leave behind an ultra-shiny finish. If you are a fan of the classic red ‘Ruby Woo’, you should definitely try out the glossy version of it.
If you want fuller-looking lips, without getting fillers, you should consider this lip treatment. The tingling formula instantly plumps up pouts, whilst providing a sultry sheen of colour.
