Lip gloss is the “go-to” makeup that every woman and girl alike should have an abundance of. Lip gloss can be used by beginners up to the professionals. The beauty of it is that there is no right or wrong way to wear lip gloss!
If you like to go natural, that’s perfect. Applying a little lip gloss is very easy to do and you don’t even need a mirror to put it on. Most lip glosses are sheer and can add just a hint of color to dress you up. With very little effort, you can look like you are ready for a night on the town.
Are you a makeup lover? Then you probably already know all about the benefits of lip gloss. It can be worn alone, with a lip liner, or over lipstick. Each way giving you lips a completely different look. There are the glitter glosses and the sheer color glosses, each one having a different effect on how the light plays off of your lips.
One rule of thumb when it comes to lips and eyes is that if you are going to go dramatic with you eyes, you should do more of a neutral color for your lips. It’s the exact opposite if you want to draw attention to your lips, make sure to keep your eyes a little bit on the softer side. Don’t want to look too made up! Lip gloss can compliment ANY look you are going for.
My two favorite brands of lip gloss are:
* Victoria’s Secret’s Beauty Rush Lip Gloss
* Bath and Body Works Liplicious Lip Gloss
Many lip glosses, even from expensive department stores, as I have found look good for a little while, then end up drying your lips out even more than when you began. I like a lip gloss to have three critical components:
1. Looks Good
2. Tastes Good
3. It Moisturizes
If it has all three of those, I am willing to pay a little more because I know I’ll be getting quality lip gloss. You know it’s a good one if you can put it on before you go to bed and wake up the next morning with soft lips! I do it all the time. You can purchase the lip gloss tubes from either store from between $4.00 up to $8.00 depending if you get it on sale or not.
The Beauty Rush Lip Gloss have even included an SPF 15 in some of their lip glosses. You can wear it knowing your lips can shine and you’ll still have protection. Choose from luscious flavors including Twisted Citrus, Strawberry Fizz, and Juiced Berry. They look as good on as they taste!
Liplicious Lip Gloss has so many different colors and flavors to choose from it makes deciding which ones to buy almost impossible. Bath and Body Works also carries the C.O. Bigelow brand, which also has a hint of mint to give your lip gloss a minty-fresh kick that is heavenly!
