My Favourite Lip Glosses


I remember a few years ago the only thing I would ever wear on my lips was a matte lipstick. Velvet Teddy was basically the only thing I wore on my lips along with Colourpop liquid lipsticks, the matte life was for me. 

That was until I was introduced to one lipgloss which totally changed the game for me. Ever since I've become obsessed with wearing lip glosses, either on their own, or as a topper, I am all about the juicy lips. 

Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip 'Fairy Floss ' - The lipgloss that changed the game for me was Fairy Floss. Of course a KathleenLights recommendation, I had to get this lipgloss when I heard her say it was her all time favourite. I've gone through I reckon four tubes and this one pictured definitely needs replacing although saying that...have they discontinued this lipgloss?! I can't find it on the website so if so, another Colourpop recommendation would have to be Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip 'Champagne Mami' .

Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip Gloss 'Aquarius'  - Obviously anything Kathleenlights I had to get my hands on and the Aquarius lip gloss is amazing. It's a very shiny and high gloss lipgloss that is a glossy version of the Aquarius lipstick. It's a taupey nude pink, but steering more on the nude side. What I love about this one is that you can either wear it on it's own, as it's a medium coverage gloss or on top of a lipstick. It's super comfortable to wear. My one gripe is they changed the applicator from a doefoot to a brush, but the formula and colour is second to none so will still be my favourite. 


Clinique Pop Splash Lipgloss 'Adore U' - This featured in my monthly beauty favourites last month and it's going to be in my top favourite lip gloss section too. It's a beautiful pink gloss with a hint of shimmer and gold trickling through it. The shimmer isn't chunky at all and instead just leaves a lovely glossy reflexion on the lips. It's got a very similar pink colouring as Fairyfloss, but is just that little bit more transparent. 

Mac Lipglass 'Prrr'  - In the Summer I love bringing out this lip-glass as it's one of two of my peach lipglosses as I tend to steer more towards pinks/taupes. This definitely steers on the thicker side of lipgloss formulas, but it's still incredibly comfortable to wear and on top of Charlotte Tilbury's 'Bitch Perfect' it's a gorgeous combination! 

Revlon Kiss 'Plumping Lip Creme' 'Cashmere' - My other peach lipgloss is this lip creme from Revlon. I would say this almost fits closer to the liquid lipstick rather than the lipgloss. This is definitely a product I'd wear more on it's own rather than on top of a lipstick as it's quite opaque of a formula. This also has a slight plumping affect as well, thankfully I don't find it irritates my lips at all and is quite subtle, but it does just add that extra juiciness and makes your lips look extra fuller. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss 'Toffee' - Although Winter time usually calls for all the matte lipsticks, this lipgloss is perfect as it's that darker brown nude tone that is perfect to take you from day to night. I love wearing this on it's own, or a light layer on top of a Velvet Teddy but as it is quite a thick formula I would tend to wear it on it's own and would definitely recommend a light layer as otherwise it can be quite claggy to wear. As it's quite dark it also does last all day. 

Let me know in the comments below what you're favourite lipglosses are and your all time favourite formulas!

  1. The Clinique one looks amazing, and right up my street! I’ve never actually tried any of the formulas you’ve mentioned here. Might I recommend the BareMinerals Gen Nude Buttercream lipglosses? They feel super soft on the lips and aren’t sticky at all. I don’t wear lipgloss very often anymore though as I’ve switched to creamier lipsticks, but whenever I pop out my Velvet Teddy (I know, I’m like you, I used to wear that every day!!!) or any other matte formula I tend to combine a lipgloss to make it not so matte. Lovely recommedations you’ve got here though and I’ll be sure to check out that Clinique one!

  8. I started warming up to lipgloss when I realised it took less time and effort to apply than lipstick haha. I love that it's so quick and actually love the glow it gives to the lips - after having a phrase of only wearing matte, like you. Colourpop seem to have great ones! :)

    1. Haha yes exactly! I also think it's less messy in the sense of with a bold lip or a matte lip, you can really tell when it's started to fade, but not with a gloss! xx

  13. These colours are so gorgeous - and your photos are so pretty! I would love to get in to glosses more, I adored the Too Faced Peach Oil glosses as they felt super creamy and not sticky at all, but the ones I tried recently are so sticky, I would love to find a non sticky consistency, then I would be sold! :D xx
