Whether you are a lipstick, lip stain or lip gloss devotee, I promise you that these latest glossy finds are something to seriously get excited over. Finding the right gloss isn’t as easy as one would think. Some are too sticky, some have a strange smell, some have a super disappointing wear time, and the list goes on and on. Never fear, I’ve found a solution. I recently discovered three different glosses, (literally in the past two weeks) all containing hints of shimmer, that totally WOWED me. Don’t let the word “shimmer” scare you, because these formulas are super chic and give you that perfect plumping effect that’s super editorial and glossy, not glittery.
Butter London, known of course for their spot-on nail colors, has broadened their line to include makeup. Their Butter London Lippy Shimmer Glosses are, like their polishes (hello Tea with the Queen), just too good. They smell of vanilla and come in the best neutral, pinky tones that prove there’s something for everyone. They contain tiny flecks of sparkle to give your lips a super polished look.
While at shopping at Bergdorfs this holiday season, I stumbled upon my second lip gloss obsession: YSL Gloss Volupte (exclusive to BG and YSL.com). OMG. Literally this is the last lip gloss that I will ever want to buy. Not kidding, I want each and every color! The texture is lightweight, the color is intensely glossy and ethereal, and the finish will leave your lips chic and shiny. The whole idea here is that you can mix and match shades to create your own custom color. So chic, right?
Lastly, Guerlain’s Intense Colour & Shine Bare Lip Sensation is perfect for those who want something a little more discrete. The veil-like texture is composed of mineral and botanic oils to maintain hydration and keep lips super soft. The colors have hints of shimmer and contain plumping properties. The best part is the scent! The light, delicate vanilla and rose scent makes this gloss super addicting.
So whatever your lip gloss preference, these products are sure to keep your pout pretty, plump, and polished. You can totally blame me if you find yourself completely hooked.
