I’m typically not a huge fan of lip glosses. Don’t get me wrong, I love the finish on them and the colour, but a lot of them I find to be too sticky and just uncomfortable to wear. I don’t like the feeling of having something on my lips. I would rather apply a lip product and then forget about it.
When I heard that Mary Kay was launching some lip oils in their new spring Light, Reinvented collection, I thought this product would be like those oils you’ve been seeing all over Instagram that influencers apply before showing you a tutorial on how to make your lips look bigger using a lip liner and some matte liquid lipstick. Anyways, turns out these lip oils are actually glosses. Who knew?!
Available in three spring shades, the limited-edition Glossy Lip Oil are a non-sticky lip gloss that provides you with shine, comfort, and colour. They are infused with grapeseed, avocado, and jojoba oils to condition lips and feed them with moisture. Colours include Brilliant Violet, Magenta Ray, and Sheer Pink.
The formula is housed in a squeeze tube and the product is dispensed onto an angled soft applicator so you apply it right from the tube. Two of the oils are pigmented, with Sheer Pink definitely being more on the sheer side, but it does leave you with a nice hint of colour.
Okay, so I know I said I don’t like most glosses, but I actually didn’t mind these. They are very comfortable to wear, they give you amazing colour, and I’m not too worried about how sticky my hair will be on a windy day. My favourite part of the whole experience is definitely the feeling you get when they are on. Lips feel moisturized, which is a must for the current winter weather.
These retails for C$19 a piece through Mary Kay consultants. I really liked these, so if you’re a gloss girl, or even someone who doesn’t typically wear a lot of makeup, I think you’ll love these. They feel like a lip balm, but with some colour thrown in and some shine. What’s not to love?
