Minimal make up = lip gloss! and according to Cosmopolitan ‘high shine lips are going to be eeeverywhere in 2018’!!! (WMC loves shiny lips)

Lip gloss might have been annoyingly sticky in the past but nowadays brands are constantly developing blends that give lips a plumped, beautiful finish without the stickiness. Predominantly, lip glosses are used to give lips a glossy shine, and sometimes add discrete colour. Just like lipsticks, lip glosses come in different forms. They are also available in collections of denseness varying from translucent to solid, and can have various frosted, glittery, glossy, and metallic finishes.

A ‘basic’ lip gloss adds shine, brings out the colour and/or might plump the lips. A coloured lip gloss adds a blend of colour and shine and a glittery lip gloss can be with or without colour, but has a glitter base. They can also be applied on top of lipstick to increase the gloss of your favourite colour, or to add depth as in the case of glitter gloss.
