When it comes to lip gloss beauty products, finding what works for you isn't always easy. The market is oversaturated with lip options like lipgloss, lipstick, plumpers, and more every time you turn the pages of a magazine.
While I don't pretend to be a lip gloss or makeup expert, I have tried my fair share of options over the years. I tend to lean towards a more natural look since I'm not usually one to dress up and go out at night. So, when I choose a lip gloss beauty products, it tends to be more on the neutral or glossy side.
Since I've sold many glosses and lipsticks in my salon in the past, I thought I'd share some of my favorite beauty options for your lips and see if you happen to love one of them the same way I do.
I've mentioned this before, but it remains one of my absolute favorites. This plumper comes in a variety of natural and slightly pigmented colors, and it has the added effect of plumping your lips. I have lips that could use a little boost from time to time. This does the trick.
After trying many lip plumping products over the years, I've declared this the best to anyone who asks me for an option (which I get a lot). If you're looking for a little extra plump and understated color, this is your best bet.
Another favorite is a pure lip gloss by Glo Skin Beauty. This gloss comes in a huge variety of colors and gives a shine to your lips that isn't sticky or overwhelming. It actually provides the perfect hint of color for your lips.
I've tried a ton of their shades over the years and tend to stick to the lighter pinks and mauves, but I've seen the dark colors in action, and they're just as good. The extra bonus is the lip nourishing ingredients that heal as well as make your lips look glossed to perfection.
As I said, I'm not a huge fan of lipstick. I tend to find the color overwhelming, and it's not a beauty product I use all that often. However, the first time I used the Glossier lipstick I was sold. They use dialed down pigments so that your look comes across more natural. Yet their colors are vibrant and designed to fit all different skin types.
If you're looking for a lipstick that isn't super intense, Glossier is where it's at.
Whatever you decide to wear, make sure you feel totally comfortable and at ease with both the color, the gloss, and the feel. If you're not into the big, bold red look, ignore it and do your own thing. I always have.
