Easy, Everyday Beauty | The Lip Gloss Edit

Hello Lovelies!

I have been reaching for these lip glosses constantly over the last few months, and thought I would share them with you today. They are all fairly neutral in tone, some a little more mauve, and one a little more pink, but they are all formulas that I love. All of the shades are perfect to grab of a morning, when typically I don't have a great deal of time, and I just want a nice natural, glossy lip. There is almost always at least one of these in my handbag, they are all perfect to rotate through your makeup bag. I find all of them to impart a good amount of pigment, without the upkeep of a solid lipstick shade.

They are all affordable, and easily accessible both in store and online. If you would like to see some swatches, and hear my thoughts, then please keep reading!

The Beauty Vine's Everyday Lip Gloss Edit

From Left to Right
Maybelline Caramel Infused, L'Oreal Paris Molto Mauve, Lanolips Rhubarb,
NYX Tiramisu, NYX Natural, Rimmel London Snog

Maybelline Color Elixer Creamy Lip Gloss - Caramel Infused    RRP $17.95 AUD.
Coming up slightly more pink in the photograph above, Caramel Infused is a gorgeous shade. This formula has a little bit of tack to it, but it is not overly sticky on the lips. Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup inspired this purchase... and that girl knows her stuff! There is currently 50% off Maybelline at Priceline Pharmacy.... you're welcome!

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Gloss - Molto Mauve  RRP $21.95 AUD.
From memory, these were released last year, and Molto Mauve was the first shade that I purchased. A perfect, mauve toned, everyday shade, in a smooth gel-like formula that has quite good staying power for a gloss. It has a very subtle shimmer, not at all frosty, and is also enriched with oils to prevent moisture loss. Love.

Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour SPF 15 - Rhubarb  RRP $13.95 AUD.
I have an embarrassingly large collection of Lanolips, and Rhubarb is the most recent addition to my little family. I adore the formula of these... intensely nourishing thanks to the lanolin, sweet almond oil, shea butter and coconut butter, and also protective with the added SPF 15. Rhubarb is a lovely warm, rosey pink that treats and soothes your lips like a boss. This has definitely been a favourite over the winter months for me!

NYX Butter Gloss - Tiramisu  RRP $9.95 AUD.
Quite literally the perfect shade of nude for me. I just cannot pull off very pale nude lip shades. I feel like it ages me even more, and is just not flattering. It was not until I swatched these that I realised that it is almost identical to the Mega Shine Gloss in Natural ( to the right in the photograph above ). The butter glosses smell delicious, and feel really lovely on the lips. You will need to reapply frequently, however I find this to be a pleasure, and not a bother at all. Love.

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss - Natural RRP $11.95 AUD.
This one is a rediscovery. I found her floating around aimlessly in the bottom of a makeup bag, and have brought her back into rotation. As I mentioned, Natural is almost identical to Tiramisu, but this formula is thicker, has a little bit of tack, and as a result does hang around a little longer. Some people find the scent of the Mega Shine glosses to be a little strong ( I always think of Cherry flavoured cough mixture ) but it does not bother me at all. Natural has no shimmer present, and a high gloss finish on the lips. Definitely one to add to your collection if you do not already own it!

Rimmel London Oh My Gloss! - Snog   RRP $13.95 AUD.
The Oh My Gloss! lipgloss range from Rimmel London was released in June of this year. The formula of these remind me of the now discontinued "Stay Glossy" lip glosses, which were a lovely cushiony, gel like formula. I used to love those! Anyone else? Snog is a gorgeous mauve/neutral that has a very fine shimmer running through it. Rimmel boasts 6 hours of wear with these babies, however I will need to reapply around the 3 hour mark, and sooner if I have been eating or drinking. They have a lovely, flat doe foot applicator, and smell good too!

I purchase my NYX products from Target Australia, and I believe both of these glosses are currently 30% off. Nice.

I take a trip to Priceline for my Rimmel London, L'Oreal, Maybelline and Lanolips products.
