I love having a pretty pucker and am very much a gloss-girl, but often times feel overwhelmed with what seems like a bounty so readily available. Every brand has their own selection and inevitably I always turn to what I’m familiar with. Until now. I recently had the opportunity to test out some colorful glosses, that I (and probably you) have never heard of. Each of the below added color (some more intense than others) and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I adored each of them. Just goes to show that sometimes choosing what you’re most familiar with will leave you missing out on sometime better…like these below selections!
Opalima Lip Creme – infused with Avocado Oil and Shea Butter, this goes on as easy as a gloss but covers like a lipstick. All Opalima Cosmetics are mineral based and free from bismuth, nano particles, Parabens, Talc, petrochemicals, FD&C dyes, lake dyes and carmine. The Lip Cream, feels like a moisturizer and isn’t the least sticky! Retails for $13 and is available in 12 shades.
Manic Panic High Voltage Lip Gloss – if you’re searching for high pigment, you will absolutely fall in love with High Voltage! With Vitamin C and E plus jojoba this lends a bright-hued shine and feels smooth as silk on. You’ll love the LED lighted twist tube and mirror as well. 100% Vegan and Paraben free, this lasts forever! I’m smitten with Radioactive, but four total colors are available for $12 each.
Yves Rocher Lip Balm – I have to say, I’ve been searching for.ev.er. for a perfect pink hue that isn’t juvenile. I’ve found it with Yves Rocher! All of their nourishing balms sweetly color your lips with soft pastel shades. Non-sticky with perfect coverage – it’s smooth going on and once again, Paraben free. I love the size as they easily fit into even the smallest clutch and each of the three colors are just $4.
