My Current Favorite Lipglosses

by - Wednesday, November 20, 2019

I cycle through favorite lipglosses a lot, whether it's high end or drugstore, and here are my current favorites from each side of the spectrum...


Buxom Full-On Lip Cream (shade White Russian)
This lipgloss is plumping, but contains no glitter (which is great if you're not allowed to wear glitter due to parental/work/school reasons). White Russian is a pretty pale nude in the tube, but it wears beautifully on the lips.

Buxom Full-on Lip Polish (shade Princess)
Unlike its Lip Cream counterpart, the Full-on Lip Polish from Buxom does contain some (read: a lot) glitter. The Lip Polish is also plumping, which, in addition to the glitter, will make your lips look very very juicy. Princess is a sparkly nude pink with (as expected) a lot of glitter and even though I don't wear it as much now, it's still a fun lipgloss to pull out.

Butter London Plush Rush Lipgloss (shade Fireworks)
My favorite plumping lipgloss has to be the Butter London Plush Rush lipgloss as it is plumping, but it doesn't feel as tingly as other plumping lipglosses. Fireworks is a beautiful golden nude and one I reach for when I don't want to wear a lipstick.

BareMinerals Buttercream Gloss
The BareMinerals Buttercream Gloss is my favorite non-plumping high end lipgloss as even the shades that have glitter are subtle enough to wear to school or work if you aren't allowed to wear glitter, plus they are nourishing and not sticky in the slightest.

Kiko Hydra Gloss (shade Pink Magnolia) 
This is a recent addition to my collection, but I already love the Kiko Hydra Lip Gloss. It's the best lipgloss formula for a drugstore priced range that isn't sticky or plumping. Pink Magnolia is a great neutral pink to have in any collection.

Palladio Plump n' Shine Lipgloss 
These lipglosses are unusual-first off, they have a brush like applicator instead of your usual doe foot applicator, and they are plumping, but they sting a lot less than your average plumping gloss.

Essence XXXL Lip Gloss
The XXXL Lipglosses from Essence have been sadly discontinued, but they are a great glittery and affordable lip gloss at only $2.49 per lipgloss. I wouldn't wear it if you have a strict makeup code, but if you don't go for it as they're great.

Kiko Creamy Lipgloss
The Kiko Creamy Lipgloss is so opaque it could technically pass as a lip crayon but it has that tiny hint of gloss that makes it obvious it's a lipgloss.

What are your favorite lipglosses at the moment?
