Glossy Lip Picks


I've recently started favouring a glossier lip, I feel like it's more suited to Spring and Summer months, and matte lips belong in the colder seasons. I've even gotten into lipgloss, which is saying something since I'd never normally go near lipgloss with a barge pole, and I know a lot of you feel the same! So I thought I'd give you a round up of my favourite lip products that give a glossy effect, without actually wearing a gloss.

One of my favourite lipstick ranges right now is the Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colour Line, pictured here is the shade Rosy. As the name would suggest, the formula of these is pretty sheer, but easily buildable. What I love about these is the fact that they have a super glossy finish, but they still last ages on the lips. They aren't cheap but as far as I'm concerned, they're totally worth it. 

Another high-end pick I wanted to mention is the NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils. Pictured above is the shade New Lover and I just love this as a not-quite-nude my-lips-but-better shade, that just adds a little colour and shine. This range of pencils is just so easy to wear, and perfect for chucking in the handbag for on the go.

Another pencil option that's a lot more budget friendly are the Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayons (pictured above Peach On The Beach). When these were first released I didn't think I'd wear any of the shades, but actually they all look quite different on to how they look in the bullet, since they're quite sheer. Again, I love these because despite their sheer, glossy look, they last really well on the lips.

I've raved about the Kiko Kiss Balms a lot on this blog, and quite deservedly. Under five pounds and incredibly moisturising, with just a sheer hint of colour, I'm a big fan of these. Since they're technically a balm they leave a super glossy effect to the lips, but with a pop of colour. A definite handbag staple. 

The Korres Lip Butters aren't necessarily the most practical of lip products, the pot means it's not ideal for on the go, but I do love them all the same. Super moisturising, but they come in a super pretty range of shades (pictured is Pomegranate, my favourite) and they give a seriously glossy finish.

And lastly the Revlon Lip Butters. In all honesty I'm not a massive fan of these, I find the colour range a little suspect but the above shade, Berry Smoothie, is the most wearable, and with some of them they're just a bit too wet, if that makes sense, they're kinda squishy in the barrel. However, they do leave a glossy, pretty finish on the lips, despite not being moisturising at all.

What are your favourite glossy lip picks?
