5 Must-Have Lip Glosses








I've always been a lip gloss lover- even all year round. I think it's important to add hints of shine to your makeup, especially as we are leaning towards the darker and gloomier seasons. So, I thought it was time that I put together a collection of my all time favourite glosses. Even though they are in order, there is so little between them all, so I suggest you read each review and see what gloss you think would suit you! Finally, all these glosses are a mixture of prices- I have a couple of higher end products and a few drug store ones too.




5.  Benefit Coralista

Coralista is a creamy, bright, coral lip gloss (hence the name) which claims to have an ultra-push effect. As a matter of fact, I do agree with this, as it leaves my lips feeling larger and more plumped than usual. On top of this, this gloss is verging on a matte consistency, just with a gloss finish. This is great if you don't want a great amount of sparkle on your lips and to wear on an everyday basis. You can purchase Coralista here for £14.50- which for a high end brand is an average price for a lip gloss, however it isn't the cheapest!



4. Gilly Hicks Lip Colour

Next up, I have quite an old lip gloss from Gilly Hicks, in fact I think I purchased this around two years ago but I have loved it ever since! This gloss has a very creamy but not too thick consistency with a luscious vanilla scent which makes it smell very unique and feminine! You can't currently buy this online (it's normally £10), however there is a very similar gloss on Gilly Hicks which you can buy here (and it's on sale for around £1!) 





3. L'oreal Glam Shine

I always find that I fall in love with every L'oreal lip gloss I try! My all time favourite has to be their Glam Shine Gloss Brilliance in the shade 102 Always Pink. This gloss claims to last 6 hours, which is quite ambitious, although I think this is one of the only lip glosses I have ever tried which lasts a veeery long time! Even when I eat and drink, the colour and shine stays put! You can find this product in any high street drugstore for just £8.69, or you can find it online here.



2. Bourjois 3D Effet

When it comes to Bourjois, I can never fault any of there products which I own. This 3 dimension lip gloss is exactly what it says- a bold, voluminous and shine elixir gloss. I have the shade 03 Brown Rose which is a dark purple with a pinky brown undertone. This colour is perfect for autumn if you don't want to brave bolder lips in the darker months. You can buy this here for £7.99- so it is one of the cheaper glosses. 




1. Dior Addict Gloss

Finally, I have my favourite lip gloss by Dior. Obviously, most of you will know straight away that Dior products are not cheap, however after months of saving I decided to spoil myself at Duty Free. What I love about these Dior glosses is that they don't consist of just one pure colour, yet a spectrum of glittery tones. The packaging is truely irresistible; a long, crystal clear cuboid with a silver lid engraved with the letters 'CD'. I purchased the shade 653 Rose Surprise which is a very feminine and pretty shade which can be pulled off literally all year round. One coat easily lasts for hours on end and the product as a whole lasts a really long time, which counterbalances the price. You can buy this product here for £22, again not the cheapest lip gloss but definitely worth it if you have a little cash to splash and you're on the hunt for a good quality, high end lip product!

  1. I'm not usually one for lip glosses but some of these look so pretty, especially the Dior one! If there's one place it's acceptable to spend that much on a lip gloss, it's duty free :D

  14. I am sensing a pink theme! I have never been a fan of lip glosses- as soon as I put it on, my hair rebels and sticks to my newly glossed lips! Some of these look so tempting that I might have to give them a try though!
