You can tell this is our favourite time of the year, can’t you? I mean, all we’ve been going on and on about is this season Diwali is almost here and we’re SO excited! Finally, we’ve got a valid excuse to party, dress up and go all out. This is that time of the year when you have every reason to go over the top with your outfits and makeup. Obviously, the latter part is what we’re concerned about. 

All through the year, our makeup looks are quite neutral and subdued, no? We stick to earthy tones and stay away from loud colours, shine and gloss. But the festive season, especially Diwali gives us the free pass to go berserk with shine, gloss and colour! While we’ve already given you a lowdown of our favourite glitzy eyeshadow palettes, this time around let’s turn the focus towards the lips, shall we? While lipsticks may come and go, gloss is forever. These words were uttered by the famous, Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl. Lip gloss is the one product that can transform your lips, making them juicy, pouty and shiny in no time!

So here are a few of our favourite lip glosses that you’re going to love – 

Charlotte Tilbury, Collagen Lip Bath Gloss

Did you really think a cult favourite from Charlotte Tilbury wouldn’t be on this list? The Collagen Lip Bath Gloss comes enriched with a barrage of powerful ingredients like lip peptides which add volume to the lips, marine collagen which intensely hydrates and peppermint oil which adds some freshness. What we absolutely love about the Collagen Lip Bath Gloss is the presence of elegant pearlescent pigments that look like a dream.

We’ve all adored Nykaa’s lipsticks but I think their lip glosses are quite underrated. After trying out the Gloss It Up! High Shine Lip Gloss, you’re gonna be convinced too. Infused with light-magnifying technology which gives you the most glitzy pout ever, this lip gloss is perfect for the festive season. Extremely comfortable on the lips and long-lasting, the Gloss It Up! High Shine Lip Gloss can be worn all by itself too!

Okay, we know this is a lip plumper, but the Too Faced Lip Injection Maximum Plump makes for the perfect lip gloss too, and we’re gonna tell you why. It’s lip plumping abilities are no secret, I mean in just 5 minutes you can see a visible difference. However, the holographic pigments in this give a fabulous, subtle sheen that looks oh-so-stunning. I love pairing it with my nude lipsticks for the ultimate pout.

Kiko Milano, Precious Lip Gloss


Hot off their Festival Glow Collection, the Kiko Milano Precious Lip Gloss is a clear gloss with shimmering gold flakes in it. Cue, festive season! Infused with cornflower extract and delicate notes of lavender, this lip gloss nourishes your lips and coats them with soft sparkle. Not too heavy on the lips, the Precious Lip Gloss looks best when it’s layered on top of lipstick due to its clear formulation. Those gold flakes are everything!
