The Lipgloss Edition

I mentioned in my latest beauty buys post that I have accumulated quite a few new lipglosses recently so have decided to do a round up and let you know which ones are hits and which ones are misses.


Swatched below: GC Pouty Princess, Apocalips red, dark pink and orange, NYX Meringue, NYX Creme Brulee, L’Oreal Miss Candy, Pink Treat and Dolce Pralina.



NYX Butter Glosses

First up are my new favourite glosses the NYX butter glosses. They are super creamy and luscious on the lips, they have fantastic shine and quite a nice colour pick up. I have shades Creme BrΓ»lΓ©e and Meringue and will be adding to my collection with some more shades very soon.

L’oreal Glam Shine Miss Candy 

I have 3 of these glosses and while they are nice and I love the applicators the selection of shades I have offer very little colour just a little shimmer. I prefer a solid colour than sparkly glosses as I like a strong lip but for daytime these work quite nice. I have shades 712 Dolce Pralina, 709 Miss Candy and 710 Pink Treat.


Rimmel Apocalips

I have mentioned previously that these glosses require a little precision and patience while applying and can be quite messy but they offer a fantastic colour pay off so are worth it. I have the red, orange and dark pink shades.



Gerard Cosmetics Lipgloss

I am a huge fan of the Gerard Cosmetics lippy so I thought I would certainly love the glosses but I really don’t. I have only tried one shade, Pouty Princess, but the shade is a dull pink that is uninspiring and doesn’t last very long. Also the packaging includes a little light for application but it is quite erratic in the sense that sometimes it will work and other times it won’t. I think I would need to try more shades to give a far judgement but for now I would prefer stick to their lipsticks that I do enjoy!


Do you have any lipglosses that you love?
