I’m a ride or die matte lip gal, so it takes a lot for a gloss to get in my good graces. Here are some of the glosses that have impressed me recently.
*We’re committed to transparency. The products mentioned were given to us to try by the brand. As always, all thoughts expressed on Rouge18 are our honest opinions.
1. Too Face Bunny Kisses Lip Gloss
I love a lighter nude gloss for when I’m trying to make a lip look a bit more cool-toned. I wear this over brown lip liner or over a deeper nude matte lipstick for a glossy finish.
2. Bare Minerals Gen Nude Gloss in ‘Werk’ ($19)
Not only is it a great rosy, mauvy nude, this gloss leaves my lips feeling so amazingly moisturized even after I wipe it off.
3. Revlon Super Lustrous The Gloss in #308 ‘Plum Appeal’ ($8.99)
The doe-foot applicator on this gloss is my favorite gloss applicator ever. It’s large and thick, for quick, easy coverage. Plus, the color is a rich plum that’s perfect for all skin tones.
Some other shades of this gloss I love are #270 ‘Indulge In It’ and #265 ‘Black Cherry.’
4. Profusion Sparkling Lip Topper in ‘Fantasy Topper’ ($5)
This gloss is a sparkly topper that comes in a set with a lip liner and matching matte lip cream. I love wearing Fantasy Topper both as a topper over the lip cream or on its own as a gloss.
5. MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour in #315 ‘Autumn Russet’ ($22)
This was the gloss that made me believe in sparkly lips. It has a sheer coral base and holographic sparkles. I especially love pairing this with a burnt orange lipstick and brown liner.
