Lip gloss is typically made from a mixture of thickeners (waxes), emollients (oils) and petroleum jelly that have been melted together and cooled for application. These ingredients make up 50% of the ingredients in lip gloss and their ratio can be altered depending on form (e.g. potted lip glosses may use less petroleum jelly and wax than lip gloss in a tube). The wax used in lip gloss can be beeswax, carnuba wax, lanolin, candelilla wax or shea butter. Commonly used oils include coconut, jojoba and sunflower and these provide texture and shine.
Other ingredients can be incorporated depending on the formula such as colour additives, flavours, fragrances, vitamins A, C and E, sun-protective titanium dioxide, anaesthetic agents like mint and menthol and anti-aging agents such as Hyaluronic Acid. Glittery lip glosses can also utilise mica or iron oxide, a naturally occurring mineral deposit.
Layering lip gloss over Lipstick can take your lip look to the next level. It can also add versatility to your products. If you have a favourite shade of matte lipstick and you’re trying to find that shade in lip gloss form, adding clear gloss to your matte lipstick will give it the shine you’re looking for without altering the colour.
When applying lip gloss over lipstick, you can dab it on with a Makeup Brush or your finger for a nice sheen or you can apply it to your bottom lip and press your lips together gently for a shiny look.
Just remember that lip gloss typically has lesser wear-time than lipstick so your colour may fade sooner than you’d like. Layering lip gloss over Lip Liner or Lip Stain may provide longer staying power.
Plumping lip gloss makes use of particular ingredients that react with your skin and promote blood flow to create temporarily fuller or ‘plump’ lips. Plumping agents commonly used include collagen, hyaluronic acid, caffeine and mild irritants such as capsicum, menthol and cinnamon.
Be aware that plumping lip glosses can create a tingling sensation upon application and those with Sensitive Skin or a history of allergies should be vigilant when considering plumping lip gloss. Plumping lip glosses utilising hyaluronic acid most likely the safest option as hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance found in our body’s connective tissue.
