There is something about an ultra shiny lip that makes for a sumptuous, attractive and alluring effect. One way to add the shine without adding colour is lip gloss. It is another layer of polish that contributes to a well groomed look. And it can make your lips look more full. 

But the gloss also has its drawbacks. For example, the texture of lip gloss feels awful, which is why I prefer to wear lipstick. It’s terribly sticky and unless someone can recommend a truly NON-STICKY gloss, I will never wear it again. It is also a recipe for disaster when you have long loose hair and it’s windy out. And I think when women already have full lips, the gloss can make them look too full.

That’s my take on the good and bad of lip gloss. What’s yours?
