When Lauren Conrad wasn't wearing a bold red lip on The Hills, she was all about an ultra-glossy nude lip, so when she launched The Lip Gloss with her eponymous new brand, Lauren Conrad Beauty, I wasn't overly surprised. And well, I definitely didn't expect to love the clear gloss as much as I do.
The formula is hydrating, non-sticky, and looks lovely whether you wear it alone — or on top of lip liner or lipstick to add some extra shine factor. It's infused with rose oils and mica, which make my lips look lush, juicy, and full. In fact, the second time that I wore The Lip Gloss, a family friend of mine actually asked me if I got filler. I had not, folks. It was all the gloss.
Now, I'm lucky enough to have naturally full-ish lips, but if they're not hydrated, they shrivel up and look much smaller than they are. This gloss takes care of that instantly, leaving my lips moisturized for hours. Additionally, it helps smooth out the fine lines I have on my lips, which subsequently makes them look plumper — no filler needed.
The Lip Gloss is also available in two other shades: Dawn (a shimmery brown) and Raspberry (a sheer red). Personally, though, I'm partial to Rose Quartz because it works with any other lip product — plus, it elicits all the early 2000s nostalgia for me.
I definitely didn't forsee this, y'all, but this gloss has quickly become a staple in my daily routine (I even like wearing it when I have nothing else on), and honestly, I can't see it going anywhere, anytime soon.
