If you’re a gloss girl, you’re in luck because there’s a range of new glosses that push the limit on colour and finish.
The first: Lancome’s Once Upon a Week Juicy Tubes. Ok, we’re all familiar with the Juicy Tubes glosses, but the Once Upon a Week is a colour collection that’s more pigmented and so just so much better than the original glossy but colourful Juicy Tubes. The Once Upon a Week collection includes five classic Juicy Tubes, and two Juicy Tubes balms. The balms are the “weekend” colours – more natural and muted than the “weekday” colours, and they’re formulated so hydrate the lips for 8 hours. Each gloss is in a portable size, and there’s something for everyone in this lovely colourful collection. Limited edition and $22 each at Lancome counters.
Next, head to the Benefit counter to try their Ultra Plush glosses. The Ultra Plush line has been created to match their popular blushes – so now you can have the perfect shade of gloss to go with your blush. Our favourite is Dallas: it’s the bronzy pink you’ve been looking for and both gloss and blush are perfection. $18.
Finally, if you want something high impact and heavy on the colour, check out Shiseido’s Lacquer Rouge. This is a line of rich lip colours that wear more like a lipstick. They have some shine, but they also offer opaque coverage that really sticks to the lips. My favourite colour is Camel which is a nude beige that’s unbelievably hard to find. $30.
