Acure Organics Lip Lush ($5.99 each) lip glosses are perfect to just keep in your desk at work, in your car, or wherever, really. They’re lightly tinted and really moisturizing (but not sticky!), so they’re great basic lip glosses. The four I have here — Birthday Suit, Shmexy, Date Worthy and Daaang! — beyond having insanely cute names, have a light fruit scent that fades after a few minutes (which is a good thing in my opinion).
I like how moisturizing they are (due to the argan oil, echinacea, beeswax and other natural ingredients). Lots of lip glosses are really shiny but can be oddly drying or irritating for me. It’s like all that shine is just on the surface of my lips, and my actual lips aren’t getting any benefit, but that’s definitely not the case with these glosse, because they keep my lips feeling soft even after the shine wears off.
Here are some swatches on me:
The one called Birthday Girl is a clear lip gloss. Period. But it’s comfortable on the lips and easy to apply.
I’ve been keeping this one in my gym bag to use after working out. Like, my hair may look crazy, but my lip gloss is poppin’!
