Lately I'm all about a glossy lip.
Yes, I realize that matte lips are still going strong, but I just love how full and luscious my pout looks when I apply a gloss.
However, with the amount of matte lippies I bought last year, it would be a shame to have them sit in my makeup drawer collecting dust.
But luckily, there's one drugstore product that'll instantly transforms my matte lipsticks into a beautiful gloss ... and it only costs $12.
Maybelline New York's New Lip Studio Shine Shot is the perfect product to bring new life to your existing lipsticks and lip pencils. This clear top coat glides on easily and provides mirror-like shine without being too sticky.
I literally apply this over anything — my fave Charlotte Tilbury lip pencil (I swear by Iconic Nude, everyone), my coveted Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita and my perfect every day nude lip colour, Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Purity.
And if you're extra daring, you can even mix it with some loose metallic pigments or eyeshadow to create a glossy, metallic lip look.
Maybelline Shine Shot Lip Topcoat is available at mass market retailers for $11.99.
