Gloss, Glossy, Glossier! A Roundup Of Our Favourite Lip Glosses Of All Time

Gloss, Glossy, Glossier! A Roundup Of Our Favourite Lip Glosses Of All Time

Gone are the days when we swiped a matte lipstick and called it a day. You can now put your liquid lipsticks to rest as we are happy to welcome back to centre stage, The Lip Gloss. Despite the fact that we have spent two entire years either in the comfort of our homes or hidden under a mask, the lip gloss popularity has only seem to grown. If you have been loyal to a glossy lip since the late 90s-early 2000s, and are instantly reminded of the sticky, drying, hair-stuck-to-your-lip nightmare, you can relax. The modern day formulas that we see in lip glosses today are hydrating and as non-stick as possible!

If you are a faithful fan or are new to the party, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. We tried out 10 cult-favourite lip glosses and have made a list of the top 5 contenders.

Here is our tried and tested list of the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) lip-glosses.

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

The best out of the range of star-studded products in the FENTY line, the Universal Lip Luminizer, is a dream to use. Available in six ultra-flattering shades ranging from clears to pinks to nudes, it looks stunning on all kinds of skin tones. It’s got a creamy, soft treasure and leaves your lips feeling super hydrated. The doe-foot applicator makes for a fuss-free and easy-to-use application, it doesn’t hurt that it is vanilla scented. The only downside is that it is steeply priced and quite the splurge.

NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss

Brands like NYX consistently prove that good makeup doesn’t necessarily have to break the bank. We think their Butter Gloss is highly underrated and needs more recognition. Available in a huge range of colours, we loved the Red Velvet for a bold yet playful look. The gloss boasts of a sheer to medium coverage with a natural sheen, that melts onto your lips- and we are happy to say that they deliver on that front. If you are a bit of a perfectionist, their small applicator is your dream because you can be super precise while coating your lips. Honestly, we have no complaints.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Lip Plumping Gloss

A fan favourite for its affordable and consistently amazing products, e.l.f cosmetics does not disappoint when it comes to their lip plumping gloss. The lip gloss that promises to plump and hydrate, and is enriched with Vitamin E and coconut oil. Although it gives a high-shine, it feels cooling and smooth on your lips. If that isn’t enough, it is free of phthalates and parabens and vegan and cruelty free! Run, don’t walk to get yourself one of these!

Lime Crime Wet Cherry Lip Gloss

Words cannot do justice to the next level, ultra shiny shine your lips get with this gloss. The sparkly sheer finish looks extra glam because of the little iridescent pearls in the formula. It is lightweight and comfortable to wear through the day with a biggish doe-foot applicator that lets you OD on the shine! It doesn’t crease or run away, and it’s a vegan and cruelty-free brand by PETA, YAY!

K.PLAY Flavoured Lipgloss

The perfect mix of nutrition and glam, the K.Play gloss is made up of key ingredients like Vitamin E and Jojoba oil. It smells fruity and divine, and the pigment is just the right amount. I loved wearing it with both a lipliner and without- both were a 10/10. It leaves your lips hydrated, soft, crease-free and super glossy. MUST MUST MUST BUY!

We thoroughly enjoyed our lip-gloss experiment and will definitely be using these products all the glam time!
