There’s nothing I like more than a summer lip colour – glossy, lush and lipsmackingly kissable. These three glosses from two of my favourite brands have just the right amount of pigment, moisture and shine to have earned their place in my summer makeup bag.
My favourite look is a slightly transparent, yet pigmented lip gloss – call it the stained glass lip look. Kiko’s 3D Instant Volume Glosses (here) give exactly the right effect – plumptious lips that literally glisten with colour but never get too opaque. Volumising, hydrating, smoothing and light diffusing, the hyaluronic acid and gel formulation makes this a dream to wear. Shade 209 (far left) is a beautiful creamy coral that looks fab applied directly to the lips, while shade 213 (far right) is a deeper berry shade that looks great worn either alone or with a lip pencil for extra definition.
If you’re after a little more coverage, Purminerals Chateau Kisses Plumping Lipgloss (here) is your choice. Hydrating, plumping, and decidedly untacky, the formula contains Resveratrox for anti-ageing benefits too! And all without any nasty parabens. Lovestruck (middle shade) is the perfect baby pink nude shade to pair with a summer smokey eye.
Juicy summer lips at the slick of a wand.
