It’s time to talk about a lip product! C’mon guys, it’s been like four days since I last talked about one. I was getting withdrawal symptoms! If you read my Lip Product Addict Tag, you know I’m not lip gloss wearer. I own like two lip glosses – that says a lot.
Fast forward a few months, I am introduced to HD Brows Lip Gloss in Hibiscus*, £15 and a love affair begins! I have quite pigmented lips and this makes it quite hard to find sheer nude lip products, as it always gives me the ‘concealer lip’ effect. I’m not a fan of that. The colour of this gloss in the tube looked like it’d be that sort of a colour.
In first application, I knew this was ‘the one’. The one sheer nude lip gloss that I shall never be parted from! The lip gloss applies smoothly and evenly. It has a really moisturising formula, which makes it slightly sticky, but it’s not sticky enough to bother me. It smells really nice too! The colour is quite a mauvey-lilac that looks nude on my pigmented lips. It’s sheer enough to wear it all the time. I love to pair this with intense smoky eyes; you can see a look I created on my Estee Lauder post here.
This is the perfect stocking filler for anyone who loves nude/sheer lip products. I love the packaging as it’s really sleek and it looks a lot more expensive than it is. I’d highly recommend for those who don’t generally like lip glosses due to their sticky texture. This is a game changer for me – definitely want to try out more shades!
