Another day to talk about makeup!

We are doing makeup explained and we are looking at Lip Gloss today:

What it is & what it does.

What types exist.

Do you need it & when should you use it.

You may also go watch the video I made about Lip Gloss on my YouTube Channel.


A lip gloss is a makeup product made for the lips to give a glossy and shiny look, that sometimes adds a bit of colour.

Originally it was a clear liquid that made an introduction to the makeup world, as it was a makeup product that gave a very subtle effect.
Nowadays you can get colour in them too, but these colours are still not as pigmented as a lipstick would be.

PLEASE NOTE: The glossy look also contributes to quite sticky lips (depending on which lip gloss you use), so do keep that in mind.


There are not many types of different lip glosses as they usually just come in a tube; but there are quite a few finishes and you may even get them with pigments. The most usual are pink, peachy, and light brown colours.

You may for example get a lip gloss in these finishes:

  • Shimmer
  • Shiny
  • Sheer
  • Glitter
  • Pigmented


You do not need lip gloss at all – just with any makeup.

It can be a pretty addition to a makeup look as it is subtle and gives a nice and natural shine to the lips. It is also a good “first step” if you are not completely comfortable with wearing makeup yet.

You may choose to wear it alone, to accompany a makeup look, or over lip stick.

That is all there is to lip gloss, and if there is some type of makeup you would like explained next, tell me in the comments and we will get to it.

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!
