Lip Gloss Off!

L’oreal Glam Shine
If you want a lip gloss that stays on and is not too sticky then this is the one you have been searching for. Glam Shine definitely lives up to its name – this product doesn?t stick your lips together but has tons of shine! There are a great range of colours and is perfect for a night on the town, dancing under lights, but not for everyday use. Well priced at RRP $19.95.

Maybelline Wet Shine
Love it love it love it! Many critics have said its colour doesn?t last and leaves lips feeling dry but we beg to differ in this case. The colours are really pretty (personal favourite is the ‘Luminous Lilac’), the gloss brilliantly glossy and there isn’t too much sparkle so you don?t look like you are on your way out for a big night rather than on your way to work! The only problem I have with Maybelline?s Wet Shine is that they’re not long lasting, but I guess that’s to be expected from a non-matte,shiny lipstick. For only RRP $9.95, the price is one of its best assests too ? this one definitely won’t break your budget!

Lancome Juicy Tubes
Juicy Tubes seems to be one of those things that people either love or hate. And you can guess which group I am in… If you want something sticky, shiny, with a mildly coloured gloss to it then Lancome?s Juicy Jube is for you. You can get the same (or even better) products in Maybelline or L?Oreal without the huge price tag, proving that cheaper can sometimes be better! The texture is annoying, plus virtually no color shows up. At over $40 a tube this is just very expensive, coloured vaseline in a tube!

Elizabeth Arden High Shine Lip Gloss
If you are a self-confessed gloss-o-holic then you might not rate the Elizabeth Arden High Shine Gloss as it is unlike any of the other glossies we tested. The beautiful packaging and classy colours prove it is not aimed at the teenagers with the slick, shiny wet-looking, gooey lips. This gloss is a beautiful smooth texture with enough colour and shine to wear happily all day long, not only that is smells great too! A definite winner! RRP $30

Nivea Lip Care Pearl & Shine
This isn’t really very glossy so you need something else for colour but it’s just so soft that you can’t resist wearing it. The jojoba oil and Vitamin E protect against the elements making it definitely the best for moisterising. The pearly shimmer gives your lips a softer, plumper appearance, and you can’t past that $3.70 price tag.
