My favourite lip-glosses for the summer

In summer, I prefer to use a lip-gloss to a heavy lipstick. I suppose it’s like wearing lighter clothes.  These are the top three lip-glosses that never leave my makeup bag and they also would suit most skin tones:

Wearing Rimmel Vinyl Gloos in Be Famous 

Rimmel Vinyl Gloos in Be Famous is soft peachy corals and it really has brightening effect on my lips and it looks so shiny on the lips. It's not sticky or runny and it lasts fairly long, I would say two hours without eating and drinking Available in Boots. Price in Ireland: Eur 6.65

Wearing Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Rose Gold
MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade is a warm pink coral with golden shimmer. The consistency of this pink gloss is is nice and thick and stays on for about 4 hours. When applied lightly it can be subtle and sex or you can also layer it for a more dramatic look, needless to say that this is my favorite night-out lipgloss, it looks amazing with a bronze smokey eye.  Available in Brown Thomas. Price in Ireland: Eur 18.00

Wearing Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Rose Gold
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Rose Gold is a pinky beige brown with golden shimmer. Bobbi Brown lip gloss is the thickest gloss that I've tried and has the staying power up to 6 hours. I also love it for the moisturizing ingredients that it contains, the gloss feels really soothing on my lips, almost like a lip balm. Available in Brown Thomas. Price in Ireland: Eur 24.00

One thing that really can be annoying about the lip-gloss is that the application never seems to be even, and they always seem just to slip away from the lips. Here is how to make the lip-gloss go even and last longer.

Step 1
Use a good quality lip balm and let it soak in at least for about 10minutes. Your lips should never be dry, and the product you use needs a smooth surface to adhere to.

Step 2
Apply a light layer of foundation on your lips.

Step 3
Apply a lip liner that matches the colour of the lip-gloss; first trace your natural lip line and the fill in the lips fully.

Step 4
Apply lip-gloss.

Step 5
Take a tissue paper put it on your lips but not too tight so you won’t wipe off the lip-gloss, then with a powder brush dab on translucent powder lightly on the tissue.

What is your favorite lip-gloss for this summer? Do you have any tips and tricks to share how to make the lip-gloss last longer?

  1. I agree with you on the lipgloss over lipstick during the summer. I'm addicted to the MAC Tender Tones that I've stocked up on. And they smell amaaaazing.
