My lips but better

No matter how much I try to avoid it I keep buying the same lip colours but I know I can’t be the only one. My absolute favourite colours to get are those that look like my natural lip colour but just better. I thought I’d share a few of my faves.

Lips with nothing on for a comparison

Yves Saint Laurent Golden Gloss in Golden Praline
This gloss is so pretty. It has a gold shimmer in it so it’s great for a night out. The only problem I have with it is the smell which I think is supposed to be YSL’s trademark mango scent. I usually don’t really like scented lip glosses but for a colour this pretty, I can deal with it!

MAC Viva Glam Lip Gloss in V
This is very similar to the YSL one but I think the colour is acutally more opaque than the YSL gloss. It’s a nice gloss but it’s just a bit stickier than I would like but that’s true of most MAC glosses.
Loreal Color Riche Lipstick in 708
This is a lipstick but still a fave. I think I like this lipstick because it goes on quite sheer and is really moisturising so the end product is quite close to a gloss anyway! It does have shimmer in it as you can see. I know some people don’t like shimmer in their lip colour but I think it livens up the colour.

Lanolips Lip Ointment in Dark Honey
This is one of those products I walked past many times without taking another look at until I actually saw a swatch of it on someone’s lips. It looked so creamy and moisturising that I had to give it a go and I think it was less than $15 for 2 from memory. It does have a bit of a weird after taste because it is an ointment rather than just a gloss but I still love it and it’s great for those days when your lips are really dry.

Clarins Color Quench Lip Gloss in 12

I actually forgot all about this gloss until my friend reminded me that I had a few Clarins glosses that I should start using again. I put this on and I couldn’t remember why I stopped using it. It’s really soft and not sticky at all and this range has a really pretty fruity scent to it.
