The satin and glossy lip edit.



Don't get me wrong I love a matte lip as much as the next person but as I have the driest lips known to humanity I do sometimes need something that is more glossy, creamy and comfortable. Today I thought I would talk you through some of my favourites. I do tend to reach for more basic nude shades when I reach for a creamier lip shade however I have also mentioned a couple of my favourite brights.

I feel like I couldn't have written a post about glossy lips without mentioning the one of the YSL Rouge volupte shine. This shade is 37 which is a beautiful everyday pinky nude shade. It is slightly lighter than my natural lip colour and is one that I reach for when I have a bright or dark eye look. George Satin lipstick in Charm is the newest to my collection and one I have used a lot over the last month. It's a deeper more purple toned nude however still wears beautifully with a large majority of looks. This one isn't quite as glossy as the YSL one and offers more of a creamy finish. 

Clinique's Lip pop's are potentially one of my favourite lipsticks ever. They are so ridiculously comfortable on the lips but they wear for such a long time. Poppy pop is the most stunning pinky toned coral which every summer is the one lipstick that I consistently reach for. My favourite lipglosses no matter the price are the Clarins Instant light lip perfectors. Shade three is the perfect super light nude shade which works so nicely basically over any nude shade ever.

YSL 37, George charm, Clinique poppy pop, Clarins 03, Bourjois 02, Maybelline Tantalising taupe, Rimmel in love with ginger, NYX Angel food cake, Collection 02, Mac syrup 
The Bourjois Rouge laques are a beautiful slightly glossy liquid lip. I don't normally love liquid lips that don't dry down however these are really beautiful. They are incredibly comfortable on the lips and don't ever get the point like a lot of glossy liquid lips do where they start to feather and become very dry on the lips. The Maybelline Colour sensational lipstick in the shade Tantalising taupe is such a perfect concealer lip shade for me and it pairs so beautifully with the Clarins gloss. I know some people aren't a big fan of a concealer lip however on my super pale skin tone I love it. It's a slightly more pink toned super pale nude than I normally wear however its a beautiful shade and one I'm going to be wearing a lot over the summer as I feel like it will look even more beautiful with tanned skin. 

Rimmel In love with ginger is a gorgeous colour and the formula is so beautiful. Don't get me wrong a very glossy bright orange is not the easiest thing in the world however I love it and I had to include in this post. It definitely needs a lip liner and a little bit of care. It is a gorgeous comfortable formula and I need to get round to picking up some more shades. The NYX butter glosses are my favourite drugstore lip product. Angel food cake is a gorgeous shade. Again its the perfect everyday lip shade. These are incredibly glossy and so beautiful on the lips, this shade goes so well with so many different shades and is one I always have in my bag. 

Collection's lip colours are a lovely range, Berry blush is definitely my favourite out of the six shades. It reminds me so much of Mac syrup which is actually the last shade I'm going to mention today. These are again very comfortable (are you sensing a theme here) and non drying (there's definitely a theme). The final shade I wanted to mention today is Mac syrup, this is my favourite Mac lip shade at the moment. It is a beautiful slightly glossier colour which is very similar to the collection shade. This is the best for really neutral makeup look but also works beautifully with a heavier makeup look. 
So that's it for today, I'd love to know what your favourite non-matte lip products are!

  1. My lips don't get on with a lot of matte formulas. I love the ColourPop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks. They have a silky finish which isn't super drying but still long lasting.
