A New lip gloss> this week's groceries.

Apparently, during a recession, people are more inclined to buy items such as lip balms or lip glosses as these products are more affordable than most beauty products while still providing the same satisfaction of indulging in luxury goods. Hence why every single beauty AND skincare company has been releasing new lippies at such a rapid pace. With this in mind, let’s revisit some old favourites and explore new contenders in the competitive world of lip glosses.

Pat Mcgrath Labs LUST Lip Gloss

Lip glosses, by nature, don’t last very long as they are mostly composed of oils and emollients, making them prone to moving around or being easily wiped off. Despite this, the Pat Mcgrath Labs LUST Lip Glosses stand out for their incredible durability, staying put for much longer than others on the market. This longevity is due to the formula being thicker and stickier than others. Although this might sound like a bad thing, the LUST lip gloss imparts an intense shine and smoothes your lips due to the viscosity of this gloss.

McoBeauty Hot Lip Plump

Plumping glosses have been all the rage lately and our current favourite comes from none other than McoBeauty. For $10, you really can’t get better than this. Not only is the Hot Lip Plump exceptionally long wearing and hydrating, this formula plumps the lips with a slight tingling sensation that is reminiscent of the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Heat. The Shade Fancy is a perfect dupe for Fenty Beauty’s Fu$$y Heat.

Saei Beauty Glossy Bounce

Saei Beauty is one of the hottest beauty brands right now and we can see why. From beautiful branding to innovative formulas, you have to check out the full range. Today, we will be highlighting the GlossyBounce lip gloss! This formula is for people who prefer a sheer formula with a pinch of colour. Furthermore, if you have dry lips, this is the gloss to go for as the Glossybounce features a nourishing blend of castor seed, jojoba and coconut oil.

Although The Saei Beauty Glossy Bounce is pretty much only available overseas, we highly recommend you find a way to get your hands on this lippie!

Refy Lip Gloss

Whether you love or hate Refy beauty, one thing is certain: the Lip Gloss is a banger. As one of the most successful influencer beauty brands, Refy is no stranger to criticism from the harsh critics of social media. However, after trying the Lip Gloss, we have to admit that it’s worth all the hype. Say what you will about Refy, but don’t knock it till you try it.

The Lip Gloss is non-sticky and balmy while delivering high shine, available in a diverse range of unique shades that we don’t usually get to see.

Charlotte Tilbury Big Lip Plumpgasm

Pillow Talk Big Lip Plumpgasm is causing a scene in the beauty industry for its lip amplifying and supersizing results. Not only is the shade absolutely gorgeous but this formula creates a 3D effect without feeling heavy on the lips. Over time, hyaluronic acid and the patented co2llogeneer hydrates and firms the lips with continued use.

Too Faced Lip Injection Power Plumping Lip Gloss

Without a doubt, the Lip Injection Power Plumping Lip Gloss is the most underrated product from Too Faced. This formula is very similar to the original Lip Injection but features a shade range that is to die for. As opposed to a sheer tint of colour, the Power Plumping Lip Gloss is available in pigmented nudes, creamy pinks, bright fuchsias and glittering shimmers. We highly recommend opting for this range as opposed to their original Lip Injection.

Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss

As the name suggests, the Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss from Hourglass delivers a reflective, mirror-like shine that truly stands out. We specifically recommend the shades Halo, Cosmic, and Ignite for a multidimensional topper that goes with every lip combo. These shades come under the “sheer shimmer” category but you can also shop within the opaque shine and soft pearl finishes depending on your desired look. Definitely check out the opaque shine shades if you prefer high impact pigmentation- they are seriously unique.
