If you have blonde hair and v pale skin, what lipgloss do you wear?
Im looking for the holy grail of lipgloss - something that gives my lips a hint of natural colour and has some staying power.
Because I am so pale, lots make me look starved of oxygen (ie v dark lips). I have a Barbara Daily one which is v good but almost used up - pale pink in the tube but looks v different once on. I was also looking at Bobbi Brown ones and liked Nude or Beige but still not convinced - but that may have been more to do with the sales assistant flapping around waving sparkly ones in my face!
Any tips (brand and colour) from fellow pale blondies ?
I have 2 that I think are lovely I m your colouring ( with freckles for good measure) my lips are dark enough so very pale glosses don't show and darker reds or maroon ish give me the corpse effect too! one from mac - it looks beige pink in the tube but looks nude pink on it s really lovely for daytime.... I ve just left it on my desk at work will get the name of it tomorrow for you. I have another bobbi brown one it s coral and the lipstick to go with it and blush--- always get lots f compliments wearing them so reckon they re good- again will check the name and post for you in a bit. I get a bit frustrated with bb lip glosses though as they re so sticky I find it difficult to get them Ou t of the tube once you have used about half so I don't think they are very good value. I ve a nice burts bees one too more like a tinted chapstick but it's quite minty ( I like that but some mightn t )
Sorry only grtting back to this now Ample pink is the mac lipgloss that s lovely Also pink diamond from Laura mercer is lovely on it s own or over a liner to highlight. Chantecuille also do a lovely coral one "dragonfly" I love gives a really nice fresh look. Comes in a lovely little flip top type case!
