Lip gloss Collection

Lip gloss is not an item of makeup that I'm completely in love with, however I do find in the summer months I do start whipping it out more often than before because once the weather does get hot sometimes you don't feel like wearing a full on heavy looking pout, but yet you still want to add some colour and definition to your lips. Now that I've actually built up a small collection of lip glosses I'd thought I would show you what ones I have in my collection and why I like them so much.

So let's take a look at the shades:

Rimmel London Vinyl Gloss lip gloss in Take A Chance- Is a pretty everyday pink with a touch of gold shimmer to it, so it makes it more of a girly shade, however it's not that shimmery where it's too in your face to wear it which is what makes it very wearable.

Barry M Lip Gloss in shade 2: This is my go-to and only nude lip gloss. It's the perfect pinky browny nude with high pigmentation and with just enough shine to wear for the day time, but it's pigmented enough to wear as an evening nude lip gloss if you wanted to wear it then as well because the colour payoff is so great. Another great point is that it smells of caramel, yum. They've actually discontinued this particular range of lip glosses but they've replaced it with another lip gloss which is practically the same shade as this one, however the shade number is now 6 (from what I remember anyway haha).

Tanya Burr lip glosses in Afternoon Tea, Picnic In The Park and Aurora: Ok so these are my favourite lip glosses ever in the whole wide world and I know that's a huge statement to make but it's true for many reasons. One is that they are extremely pigmented, they almost look like sheer liquid lipsticks once they are on the lips as they are that colourful. Next is that they are really glossy without being overly sticky, like how does that ever usually happen, but with these they do as they have the right amount of stickyness to stay on the lips but they have the perfect glossy finish to make your lips look amazing. The other reason why I love them is because they give your lips that plumped up 3D effect which other glosses promise you to give but they never do. The three shades I have are: Afternoon Tea which is a pale nudey pink shade so it's great for any look really (this one does look paler on me than I thought it would but I think I can just about get away with wearing it), Picnic In The Park which is a fab warmed toned summery pink colour that adds real ooomph to your look and is my fave out of the three and then there's Aurora which is a slightly purple pink toned gloss that looks very gorgeous and it's a shade you don't usually find from other brands.

I really hoped you enjoyed reading about my favourite lip glosses. What are your favourite lip glosses?

Thanks for reading

  1. I almost bought a Barry M Lips gloss the other day, haven't tried those yet! Also need to try Tanya's lip glosses I've heard really good things about them and the shades are so pretty. :)

    1. Yeah both of their lip glosses are so good, I wouldn't really buy any more from other brands because Barry M's ones and Tanya's ones are the best out there x

  2. Great colection !
