I’ve been fairly MIA recently across all my platforms, as I took a mini break from everything to concentrate on my assignments for my masters. After nights or should I say working until the early hours of the morning in the library they are now submitted. I really feel like university is like a game of dodgeball, you get occasional balls come your way and then when you’re the last one standing, all of sudden you’re bombarded and you’re just trying to survive.
Anyway with it being Spring, the weather is surprisingly nice here in Plymouth and I’ve rotated my makeup collection to better suit the weather. I am the queen of matte liquid lipsticks from a crazy number of nudes to peach and even black, but I’ve been mixing it up lately and been wearing a lot of glosses. So here are four of my favourite glosses atm!
If you’re a follower of mine you’re not going to be surprised by my love of the Kylie Cosmetics’ glosses, I’m now on my second Literally ($15/ £12) gloss as I love the amazing pigmentation. As it fades the gloss leaves a pretty nude colour pay off. Damn Gina ($15/ £12) is a pretty gloss that can be worn alone, although for longer wear I tend to pair it with a pink or nude lip liner. If you said to me this time last year that I would love a pink glittery lipgloss I would have laughed at you, I definitely didn’t wear anything so girly.
NYX Butter Gloss (£5) is a budget friendly option, I love the sheer plummy shade Angel Food Cake. Even my mum loves this gloss! This isn’t a crazy pigmented gloss so for me this an everyday product for a natural look.
My newest obsession is with the Sweet Peach (original size retails for £16) oil infused gloss sample I got with a Too Faced order I made a while ago, the oil leaves the lips soft and smooth. The packaging is adorable, I’m a total sucker for the cute peach mascot! Again this isn’t a super pigmented gloss like the ones from Kylie Cosmetics but it gives a pretty peachy shine, which I’ve been grabbing for over and over agin.
One thing all these glosses have in common is that they smell amazing! Glosses are great for understated girly makeup looks and are definitely a must for Spring when the weather is starting to heat up.
