Ask: Would love some lipstick/gloss recos!
Answer: I have three for you to try – one I’ve been using for years, another for the past couple, and the third for a few months. They’re all great and I love them for different reasons.
The oldie, but goodie is Nars Super Orgasm. I used to use their regular Orgasm gloss, but then they came out with the SUPER version, so I switched over. I mean, super anything is good, right?! It’s a perfect, natural, slightly sparkly pink. It has great moisture, isn’t too sticky, and it goes with anything and everything.
A couple of years ago, I discovered Illamasqua and the opaque, intense gloss called Move. It’s not sheer, so the color pops on your lips. I consider it more of a lipstick than a gloss, really. Move is a rose pink with amazing shine, no sparkles and a little stick which keeps it on and strong for longer than a sheer gloss.
My new fave is Surratt. I discovered this company via Refinery 29 who posted an article about the best eyelash curler on the planet (it really is fantastic), so I checked out the brand at Barney’s. Their lip lustre in Soigne or Coquette is lovely. It’s another nude, goes with everything, dusty pink with a bit of sparkle. This gloss dresses up your lips, but is very subtle. I wear this gloss with leggings 😉
