Gloss feature

July 20, 2016

We can’t say we’re entirely surprised about this oldie that used to be the only thing that was cool. Following the whole metallic trend, yet another 90s’ and 00s’ beauty look has clamoured its way back into our lives, and we’re definitely excited to relieve what was the bulk of our childhood and teen years.

First, a throwback to the old days when lip glosses were the thing:


Britney’s iconic lip gloss look that propelled many teenage girls to follow suit (guilty as charged).




Hands down one of the best girl groups ever. Well, anything with Beyonce in it is definitely golden anyway. Till today, we’ll never forget their shiny lips and even brighter dresses…and the lyrics of Survivor.



Buffy’s hairstyle may not be relevant anymore but her lip colour indeed slays. Other than being a vampire slayer, she does put on a decent amount of lipgloss in almost every episode.


Present day, it sure seemed as though matte lips were here to stay forever, but let’s be honest, beauty trends do get boring after awhile. Not to mention, matte lips can get pretty drying and frankly, a definite no in our books for those with dry and chapped lips. Glosses on the other hand, are moisturising and have a soft texture, giving your lips a healthy sine. We would think that the glow the glosses give are definitely in line with the “barely there” make up look that everybody’s chasing after today.



Yes, Kylie has done it again. So we’re definitely expecting to see more lip glosses in the beauty market anytime soon. But meanwhile, try these lip glosses that are already available now and ditch your matte lips for a day or two.
