Lip gloss is used to nourish, protect, enhance and highlight the lips, while also providing a glossy luster. Some lip gloss formulas include a tint or color, flavor or coolants and/or finishes like glitter, frost or metallic sheens. Most glosses contain emollients that moisturize, soothe and protect your sensitive lips, and some even offer sun protection and nourishing ingredients like antioxidants, plant extracts and vitamins. It’s good to remember that our lips change with the seasons and that the thin, sensitive skin in this area needs protection from the elements. Lip gloss is available in tubes, bottles, boxes and pots and can be applied with a wand, brush or fingertips. Some people prefer to wear colored or translucent lip gloss in lieu of lipstick, while others apply lip gloss over their lipstick to enhance and provide staying power to their lip color. Lip gloss works to help thinner, smaller lips appear more noticeable and enhances the lushness of larger lips. Either way, lip gloss can contribute a polished look to your overall makeup design and give you that perfect, sexy pout you strive for!
