YSL Golden Gloss is one of those super Want and not need items. Does anyone really need a $30 lipgloss, of course not but want? Now thats a different story. YSL’s Golden Gloss comes in a clear container with golden trimming which gives this a lux appearance. Its applicator is a short brush style which always feels nicer and more expensive than doe foot applicators in my opinion. The gloss itself is not sticky at all, but is scently with some kind of sweet candy scent. I did enjoy the formula of the lipgloss a lot, however I did not enjoy the shade I purchased too much. Golden Peony is VERY sheer, and just looked like a glittery iridescent mess on bare lips. It looks nice over a lipstick but I prefer more opacity with my glosses.
Missha’s Glam Fit Gloss in OR01 is a DELISH smelling sheer orange lipgloss. The gloss is not very heavy on lips, is quite slick and feels good on lips. It also offers a good amount of shine and but minimal color. It doesn’t taste very nice but it does smell amazing like fruits or candy. The applicator is a sponge tipped flat applicator.
I don’t consider my lips to be very pigmented, but this gloss does not offer much color on them but gives it an INSANE amount of shine. However it doesn’t last long on my lips at all and I find myself needing to reapply more often than I like.
Burts Bees has have their beeswax lip balm on the market for what seems like forever now. And its a good balm, even guys I know use their lip balms. But their lip shimmers were a different story. I was never a fan of their lip shimmers so I wasn’t sure what to think when I got their lip gloss in my recent Allure beauty box.
I was pleased with the color of the gloss as it looks like a really pretty pink in the tube, but the color is really not discernable on lips so I will not be showing a swatch. Calling this product a lip gloss is a bit misleading as I think it is better described as a liquid lip balm. This gloss reminded me of their beeswax lip balm with a slightly thinner formula and a wand applicator. It feels cushiony on lips and isn’t sticky at all. While I would not repurchase it, those who are fans of their lip balm would probably be interested in trying out this product.
