Glossy, Glossier & Glossiest

In every woman’s makeup collection, one thing there is a surplus of is lip gloss. What draws us to this fascination with lip gloss, anyway? I will have to say it’s the vast array of colors, from warm corals to bubblegum pinks.. they’re all visually captivating! 
Some of us aren’t bothered by whether the gloss is thick, thin, sticky or tacky. If you have no preference on the texture, remember that the thickness of the gloss will determine the amount of shine it has. Below are some examples of brands to possibly help you next time you’re shopping for a gloss. 

Laura Mercier Lip Glacè, Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss     & Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss
(medium texture)
CHANEL Glossimer, Christian DIOR Ultra Gloss & Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss
MAC Cosmetics Lipglass, Smashbox Reflection High Shine Gloss & Bare Escentuals BUXOM Lip Gloss
One more thing to consider, look at the amount of sparkle in the gloss. Some have very small iridescent pieces, some have much larger pieces of glitter. The problem with large pieces of glitter is that after the gloss wears off, the glitter is stuck onto your lip and it becomes very noticeable!
