Glosses are a love/hate relationship for me. Love: their shine the ease of application. Hate: windy days that result in sticky hair. When I do grab a gloss I usually go for ones that are pink and have lasting power. If I’m gonna apply it, it better last.
My two favorite glosses in my makeup arsenal are ones that I feel like have been around forever. The first is from Victoria’s Secret (yes, the lingerie store sells makeup) and I’ve been hooked on it since middle school. You know those years. You picked these up along with your PINK fluorescent tank top and thought you were being introduced to the makeup scene. Although those years have passed, I still seem to fall for the Shiny Kiss Flavored Gloss in “Strawberry Fizz”. The color itself is a wash of pink and has a hint of sparkle to it. I love to layer it over my matte lipsticks when I want a bit of shine. Although the formula can run on the sticky side, the flavoring and scent makes up for it.
My other favorite gloss is one I’ve picked up within the last year: NYX’s Butter Gloss in “Strawberry Parfait” (I guess I really do like strawberry-scented things). This gloss has a bit more color and can be worn alone or over a lipstick. I enjoy this application brush more over VS’s brand since it has a wand and is easier to manage. The formula is super creamy and long lasting – which is perfect for hot days. I definitely want to snag a hot pink and peach shade for Summer, since they’re super affordable!
Are you on or off the gloss bandwagon? If on, what’s your favorite brand?
Have a great week!
