Happy 2019 everybody!!!
I am happy to report that I’ve successfully relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina and finally feel settled in. I’ve already met some really great gals in the “influencing” space down here (hate that word) who I feel will become fast friends and provide a wealth of knowledge to me. I’ve never sought out ladies with similar goals as my own so I can only imagine what stuff I’ll learn as we bounce ideas off one another this year.
Today I wanted to chat lip gloss. Since the matte liquid lip era ended, lip gloss has taken over as the new trend. Just as everyone wants dewy, glowing skin, they also want dewy lips. I’ll be honest, I once bought a MAC lip glass in 2005 and decided I disliked lipgloss and never tried again until this new era arose. I was so unfair to gloss as a whole because MAC lip glasses are the worst and the glosses I’m going to mention below are not!
If you’ve tried lip gloss before and didn’t like the stickiness, read on to see which formulas I love that don’t give that gross feeling. You’ll notice a trend… they’re all pinky nudes. That, for now, is as far as I will dive into lip glosses. I’ve only had negative experiences with more pigmented tones separating every time my lips touch but rest assured that one day I will venture away from this grouping!
In descending color order I have my five favorite lip glosses that are my fave because of either color, formula or both. Here are some on-lip swatches on my (typically) Fenty 110/120 skin with a bit of a faux tan.
