All of you are going to start thinking I'm a liar. I keep harping on about how I don't like lipgloss and now my two latest blog posts are all about glosses. The reality is I think I hate the idea of lipgloss. I must have been scarred in my youth by cheap gloss that felt like you had slathered your lips with glue. As I've gotten older, I've found glosses which make me happy, and this is what this post is all about.
These glosses are 3 key things, comfortable to wear, my hair doesn't get stuck in them and last but not least they are PINK!
Maybelline 'The Elixir' | Captivating Carnation - This has to be one of the most talked about beauty products of all time. I remember when this was launched, the beauty blogger world went crazy for them and it was a product which truly broke the internet and emptied out drug store shelves. The Elixir formula feels like a balm on the lips and gives a subtle colour payoff. The one thing I will say about them is they are slightly sticky to touch and sometimes they slide around the lips if not layered on top of a lipstick. For those interested, I have a blog post, all about these little trinkets which includes swatches.
NYX Butter Gloss | Peaches and Cream - Without a doubt, hands down my favourite 'drug store' lipgloss. This stuff feels amazing on the lips and doesn't feel sticky, not in the slightest. The colours are also very pigmented for a gloss and are great for all day wear. Give me more, just give me more! Definitely give them a go. I've also done a blog post all about these delights.
Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain | Sweetheart Valentine - I don't know if I can call this a lipgloss, because it is a balm in the truest sense. However, it's the most pigmented balm I have ever tried. The minty smell is addictive and makes your lips feel amazing. It's a great product for those 'no make-up' make up days, basically my Sundays!
YSL Gloss Volupte | 202 - I have no words for this product. I worship it *insert heart eyes emoji* and it gets cradled in my bag every day! I know YSL beauty products cost an arm and a leg, but they really are one of those products that are worth the dollars. This product is the bomb.com! The applicator is perfectly shaped to fit into your cupid bow, the formula is a dream and the colour payoff is just magical! As goldlocks would say, this lipgloss is just right, Plus... look at the packaging.
Let me know some of your favourite glosses! I'm always interested in finding some new loves.
