Get out the Gloss


matte lips vs glossy

Last year the matte lip reigned supreme. Everyone went crazy for liquid lipsticks that stayed put for hours, and shiny products were left behind. Though most of us were fans of super matte finishes, there was some pushback for the formulas being too drying. Regardless of what you thought about the Everlasting liquid lipsticks or Kylie Jenner lip kits, with the new year comes new makeup trends.

For 2017, the glossy lips that were super popular in the 2000’s are back with a vengeance. Since cosmetics have vastly improved in that time, gone is the stickiness and dehydrating product of the past. These days lip glosses come with precise applicators, and the easy to apply formulas make it simple and fun way to play around with colour.
