How to Use Our Glossy Lipstick How to Use Our Glossy Lipstick How to Use Our Glossy Lipstick

If you’ve been keeping up with the beauty trends that grace the runways (and your social media feeds), you’ve probably noticed the progression of the “wet” beauty trend. First came wet, slicked back hair, then glossy eyelids, and now the glossy lip look is here to complete this totally saturated style. While you may want to pick and choose which trend you wear when, rather than sporting all of them at once, there’s no denying that looking like you’re fresh from the shower is seriously en vogue. We’ve already taught you how to translate the trend to your hair style and eye makeup, which means, obviously, we can’t not share how to get a glossy lip look, too. Hint, hint: The trick is in your lipstick pick. There’s no need to layer lots of makeup or use a complicated technique, it’s all about the finish of your lipstick. And, we have one that’s just right for this role. Keep reading to find out how to use our glossy lipstick for gorgeous glossy lips.

Our Best Glossy Lipstick

Achieving glossy lips doesn’t have to be a struggle. In fact, it shouldn’t even require more than a minute or two of your time. Once you have a glossy lipstick with an extreme-shine finish in your arsenal, most of the work is already done. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick is just right for the job. With a high concentration of pigments and a comfortable, hydrating formula, it’s perfect for creating that ever-popular, slick-lipped look. Yep, this shine lipstick has a high color payoff. Another major selling point: It’s available in 16 shades! If you aren’t sure with which shade to rock this look, here are a few recommendations to get you started.

Dazzling Doe: We never tire of a good “no makeup, makeup” look, and neither should you. That means always having a nude lipstick, like this one, on hand.

Polished Tango: You can’t go wrong with a tried and true pink, and that’s exactly what we have here. This flamingo-esque shade acts as a pop of color, without being too much for daily wear.

Enamel Red: Is anything more classic than a bright, candy apple red lip? We think not. Smooth this lipstick over your lips to instantly dress up any outfit.

Splendid Blackberry: Don’t be shy. This may be the darkest color in the line, but it’s also ideal for faking a fuller-looking pucker. (And not to mention great for fall/winter.) That’s right, dark lip colors are one way to make your lips look bigger than they really are!

How to Apply Our Glossy Lipstick

Once you have your shade selection, follow these (super-simple) steps to get the glossy lip look you so desire. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Step 1: Prime. If you want this look to last—which why wouldn’t you—you’ll want to use a lip primer. Apply a primer before you start twisting your lipstick tube up, and you’ll be blessed with better application and staying power. Win, win.

Step 2: Skip lip liner! This is really more of an anti-step. One of the best things about a super-glossy lip is that it doesn’t have to be perfectly precise. That means you can skip using lip liner, so there’s no need for an extra step.

Step 3: Apply glossy lipstick. Start in the center of your upper lip, working towards the outer edges of your lips, following the contour of your mouth until your lips are completely covered with glossy lipstick. And that’s it. See, told you it was easy!
