We all wish we could wake up with Kylie Jenner’s lips and no amount if Mac’s Soar lip liner is going to get us there but recently there is a new trend doing the rounds that I had to share with you guys and it is the glitter lip. No we haven’t gone back to the Spice Girl 90s when glitter was almost used as foundation but a subtle hint of glitter to enhance the lips is back with a bang.
Now before everyone heads out to Easons to get glitter capsules and lash them on your gob there is a product that is specially created for the job and promises to make you look glitter chic apposed to a drunk Katie Price.
Inspired by Jessie J Glitter Lips comes in 8 shades for a variety of different skin tones and occasions. There is everything from the blackest black shade to a fab silver, the shade Ruby slippers is the most popular and would be fab for the Christmas period. The shade I have is Sparkling Rose and it is a gorgeous mixture of pink and red.
The kit comes with a bonding cream that you put on your dry lips, I advice you do one lip at a time. Once the gel goes clear you apply the glitter with the brush provided. If you want more of a defined lip you can apply a lip liner before the gel to get a clear line.
This stuff does not move throughout the night. It is waterproof and smoke proof meaning it is great for a night out on the town. It also doesn’t feel uncomfortable or in any way heavy on the lips.
Natually because it is a glitter is it slightly drying on the lips but not half as much as a expected it to be especially since I have very dry lips to start with. I removed it with a cleansing oil and a lips scrub and it was unexpectedly very easy. Then I just applied my normal lip balm.
With us heading into summer party season and St Patricks Day around the corner this is a must have to be in your makeup bag.
