Here’s news that your 13-year-old self will be happy to hear: lip glosses are back.
The resurgence of the glossy lip is probably all thanks to the popularity of the No-Makeup Makeup Look.
Runways this season have also been filled with models sporting bold shadows with graphic liners on their lids matched with lightly glossed lips, like Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss at the Diane Von Furstenburg show:
Thankfully, beauty brands today have finally understood our issues with glosses being too sticky, shiny, and glittery. Most new lip glosses are now formulated to be lightweight and hydrating on the lips, making them more comfortable to be worn for longer hours alone or on top of lipstick.
Here are our top two picks for newly-formulated glosses that won’t leave you looking like you just ate a plate of deep-fried food:
Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer, P525, SM Department Store
Revlon's latest lip gloss offering—which will be released in November—comes in 15 highly pigmented yet lightweight colors. The applicator makes it super convenient and easy to put gloss on the lips, too.
Make Up For Ever Plexi Gloss, P1,200, TriNoma
These glosses from Make Up For Ever are easily buildable. They go on sheer, but adding a few more layers will give your lips a punch of color. The line also carries 35 different shades, so you know there's one hue perfect for you! What we love most about it is its unique applicator: a flat and flexible tip that glides on the pigment easily.
