Beauty By POPSUGAR Lip Gloss Review

If I Were Stranded on a Desert Island, This Is the Lip Gloss I'd Bring

I'm a lip gloss girl, through and through. Even though lip gloss has gone in and out of style, it's a constant staple in my makeup bag. In fact, I have one in every purse, so I'm never without my go-to lip product. However, when my favorite shade was tragically discontinued, I panicked. I needed a new lip gloss that was shiny but not sticky, didn't have an overpowering smell, and wouldn't give me those dreaded white lines on my lips. I was on a mission to try everything, but I couldn't find a product that checked every box on my list.

Working at POPSUGAR, I was lucky enough to try some of the new Beauty by POPSUGAR products, and was immediately drawn to the Be The Boss Lip Gloss ($18) because it comes in a tube that reminded me of my favorite childhood lip glosses. The applicator is unlike anything I've used before; it's fully flexible so you can really hit all the contours of your lips. And when I tried it on, I knew I'd found my perfect product. Artificial scents give me a headache, and this is sweet without being overpowering. I picked up the shade Time After Time, a dusty mauve, and it looked like my lips had gone through the pretty filter. This was the closest match I had found to my beloved discontinued lip gloss, and I was excited to see how it would wear as the day went on.

Lip gloss isn't historically the longest-lasting makeup product, but I was surprised by how moisturized my lips stayed throughout the day, even as emails piled up and I forgot to reapply. The gloss is formulated with green tea extract, which helps protect from free radicals while also brightening the skin, and hibiscus extract, which improves skin elasticity. It's also gluten-free, paraben-free, and not tested on animals. And I can confidently say that there are no white lines on my lips. Now I've just got to get more for all of my purses.
