My Favourite Lip Glosses

Monday, 22 February 2016


Hello Beauties, and happy Sunday! If you hadn't already guessed by the name of this blog, I'm a big lover of lip gloss. I don't always find it easy to discover lip glosses that suit me though. Somehow the texture is always wrong or the shades aren't pigmented enough, sometimes they're too pigmented...it's a delicate balance, but one I've managed to find in a few hero products - and it just wouldn't be fair to keep them to myself.


One lipgloss range I looove has to be the Benefit Cosmetics glosses, designed to match up to their famous boxed blushes. I currently only own two of the shades (Dandelion and Hervana) but I doubt it will be long before I add a couple more to my collection. Benefit have really nailed the formula here, it's tacky enough to be long lasting on your lips, but it's not quite sticky, meaning they're ultra-comfortable and the shine they give is something else. These glosses look lovely when layered over one of the Benefit tints, but they're also perfect on their own, as they're fairly pigmented.

When it comes to tube glosses, the Victora's Secret Beauty Crush range is definitely up there. I first tried these glosses back when I was just starting out with makeup after getting a little over-excited to see a Victorias Secret counter in Birmingham Airport on my way to Dubai, and since then I've slowly added to my collection. These glosses vary in pigmentation, as some are meant to be a light wash of shine and others are more creamy in colour, but I love each and every one of them. They're long lasting, slippy not sticky and they smell delicious. Each one is themed around a different 'flavour' meaning they all smell different and each one is a little treat. If you're stuck on shade choice, I'd definitely recommend Love Berry and Taffy Go Lucky.



Another favourite of mine also happens to be one of Kim Kardashians favourites (trust me, that's where our similarities end). NARS lipgloss in Turkish Delight is the perfect milky pink colour, which looks stunning when layered over Creme Cup or Angel by MAC. This gloss is slightly on the stickier side, but it's not so sticky that it's unwearable, and the colour is just to die for. If light, milky pinks are your thing, you definitely need this in your collection. 

I picked up this gloss from theBalm whilst I was on placement. I'd just moved to London and I was so excited to see that theBalm was available in & Other Stories (this was way before it was readily available in the UK). As I was on a budget and couldn't afford to splurge on any of the eyeshadows, I decided to pick up a gloss in 'Girl Next Door', and since then it's become my all time favourite lip gloss. The formula is to die for, it's not sticky at all and is the most comfortable gloss I've ever had the pleasure of wearing, plus the colour is lovely too...very similar to Speed Dial from MAC!

Lastly, I couldn't round up my favourite glosses without giving a shout out to the Essence XXXL Nude gloss in Shy Beauty. This little wonder was under £4 and is extremely similar to Turkish Delight from MAC, so if you're on a budget I'd go for this one first! The formula is non-sticky and spreads so evenly over your lips without sinking into any fine lines, giving your lips an almost plumped look.

What are your favourite lip glosses?

Lots of Love,
