I adore the look of a brightly coloured lip and I wish I could pull it off, but sadly lipstick just don’t work too well on me. It’s my own fault, I bite my bottom lip and as a result it gets dry and cracked and well – impossible to put lippy on to. So, instead I opt for slippery lip glosses, tinted balms and the like.
The thing about glosses is that, despite you can get them in a zillion colours, the pow factor of any shade is minimal unless you go for a thick, gloopy, sticky formula.
Finally, I have found the perfect yummy lip gloss which finds the perfect compromise between colour intensity and texture. Lipstick Queen Big Bang is delish.
It feels slippery but moisturising on the lips and I can build up the colour by layering it. It has the added bonus of being shimmery and reflective, making my lips look plumper than they really ought to. My favourite colour is Energy, a deep and shiny red. Mmmmm juicy.
