Now I’ll just come out and say it now, I’m not a massive lip gloss fan. As a girl with very long hair I am forever trying to unstick it from my lips. It’s just a lot of hassle and I hate it! However, there are two types of lip gloss that I do love and they are the Laura Mercier Lip Glaces and the Revlon Colourburst Lip Glosses.
I have two shades of the Laura Mercier Glosses, both of which came in the limited edition Lip Trios that were available at christmas. The first colour I have is Ruby Spark which came in a set that looks like this:The three items used together create a gorgeous red lip but the gloss really does finish it off beautifully and makes my lips look lovely and full!
The second colour I have is Pink Spark which has taken a real battering since my mum has discovered she loves to wear it too! The unfortunate thing is that this one was limited to the set too so we can’t even replace it when it runs out! It is a gorgeous glossy pink with slight glittery particles which really looks lovely on the lips. I may have to hide this to save what is left of it as I am sure as soon as I leave the house Mum runs to put some on!! This set looked like this: This really is the perfect set for all occasions and the glosses in both sets are full size which really made the £25.00 well worth the money as the full size Lip Glace alone is £19.50! I will be keeping an eye out for any permanent shades so I can show you one that I love without it being limited edition for once!
One kind of lip gloss that isn’t limited edition and is also much more purse friendly is the Revlon Colourburst Lip Glosses. I have the shade ‘Hot Pink’ and it is so highly pigmented it is unreal! I wear this almost like a liquid lipstick and it is so bold and vibrant! I always get comments on this when I wear it! These are quite a bargain too at only £5.99 and they have a great range of colours for you to choose from. I really like the packaging too and colour in the tube is very true to what actually transfers on top your lips! As you can probably tell, I do love bright lips as I feel they complement my complexion better than nudes!
What are your favourite glosses? Do you have any recommendations that aren’t very sticky? Do you like bright lips or nude lips the best?
