LIPGLOSS I'M LOVING

Lipgloss I’m Loving

For ages I was a matte lipstick lover – liquid lips, regular lippies and stains.  However, I have had a sudden return to my love affair with lipgloss, and I wanted to share my current favourites with you.  All of these have comfortable formulas, feel amazing on the lips, last a decent amount of time (for a lipgloss) and are just downright divine!

LIPGLOSS I'M LOVING
L – R: Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Crème; Fenty Gloss Bomb, Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion, MUD Lip Glaze, Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL; Catrice Volumising Lip Booster

I prefer my gloss on the nude side – a more natural wash of colour, so that it’s not super obvious as it wears off, nor does it rub off on my teeth.  These are a variety of nudes with pink or peach undertones to them.  Some have shimmer, some are cool toned and others are warmer.  But I love them all!

REVLON KISS PLUMPING LIP CREME

Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Crème in 525 Barely Blush R99.95

I kept hearing about these online and finally decided to take the plunge and buy it.  I love that it’s almost a cross between a gloss and a lipstick, as it’s very thick and is opaque in colour.  It has a lovely soft sweet scent, and feels super buttery on the lips.  It also has a super gentle tingle to it – more a kick of mint than an actual tingle.

I’d love to buy a few more of these and add to my collection!

FENTY BEAUTY GLOSS BOMB

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow £16

I ordered this on Harvey Nichols and had it delivered to my friend Cam from Jane Wonder while she was staying in the UK with her sister, so I managed to save on the gloss itself as well as shipping – score!

The gloss is everything the hype makes it out to be – thick, comfortable, luxurious feeling, and it looks GORGEOUS on.  It smells to me EXACTLY like strawberry Fizzers.

I’ve been keeping this one in my handbag, because I just can’t get enough of it.

**I did note that the packaging doesn’t FEEL as luxe as it looks – it’s fine just looking at it, and holding it, but when you actually open the tube, the lid feels a bit thin and flimsy almost.

URBAN DECAY HI-FI SHINE ULTRA CUSHION LIP GLOSS

Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion lipgloss in Fuel R290

This is my second gloss from the Hi-Fi range (I also have the shimmery, duo chrome Fireball), but this lovely nude shade has my heart.  It’s a my lips but better kind of colour and I ADORE the vanilla-mint scent to it.

This gloss also tingles ever so slightly – more than the Revlon one, but less than the Soap & Glory one I’m going to tell you about shortly!

MUD LIP GLAZE

MUD Lip Glaze in Bare R270*

I received this in the Smitten box I received at the launch of the MUD store in Gateway last year.  It’s a slightly stickier gloss than the others, but it has an ever so subtle shimmer that leaves your lips looking plump and juicy and gorgeous.  Every time I wear this, I wonder why I don’t wear it EVERY SINGLE DAY.  My lips just look so much better with this on them!

It also has a subtle sweet scent like sweeties – not overpowering or strong, but definitely there.  Everything I want in a gloss basically.

SOAP & GLORY SEXY MOTHER PUCKER PILLOW PLUMP XXL

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL in Nude in Town £10

I own the original, clear gloss of this and it’s just awesome!  Definitely a love or hate item though, as it doesn’t so much tingle as fizz like you’ve layered your lips heavily in sherbet.  Some people find this unpleasant, but I find the sensation addictive – it genuinely feels as though my lips are plumping up, and they look slightly plumped too (not just because of the shiny appearance either).

I love this nude shade, although it is a little on the warm side for me, however I still reach for it often enough that I’m halfway through the tube.  If you like tingling glosses – give this one a try!

CATRICE VOLUMIZING LIP BOOSTER

Catrice Volumizing lip Booster in 040 Nuts About Mary R69

I’ve owned this for a while, as you can see by the battered tube.  Catrice glosses are seriously good, especially for the price, and this could be a cheaper dupe for the Dior Addict Lip Maximiser (although I’ve used that and nothing can EVER top it).

It has a slight tingling feel – a little more than the Urban Decay one – and feels lovely on the lips.  They also have a few different shades, which is lovely as you have a selection for different skin types!
