The line between makeup and skincare is blurring with makeup that not only helps you look good, it helps care for your skin too. One such innovation is the lipgloss that cares for your lips. I have here 2 lipglosses that claim to have lip caring ingredients in our Save and Splurge category.
Save: Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie RM66
I love this one. You can read my full review on the Clinique lip smoothie and you might like to know I’ve repurchased it, in a different colour. I like that its not sticky, has decent but light colour and best of all, keeps my lips flake free and plumped up. RM66 isn’t quite a saving, but its cheaper that the splurge option 🙂
Splurge : Guerlain Essence de Gloss – RM105
Guerlain’s new KissKiss lipgloss has lip caring benefits too. The Essence de Gloss is not sticky, has lovely pigmented colour (much more pigmented than Clinique) and helps keeps lips plumped up, and flake free. You can read my full review by following the link.
I’m liking both these lip glosses – and its great to know that they both have lip caring benefits if used often. Coming from a non lipgloss loving gal that’s saying something! I’d pick the Clinique one if used often but for something luxurious and if you prefer more colour on your lips, go for the Guerlain one.
Save and Splurge is where I show you 2 similar items by 2 different brands that I have tried. They may not work quite the same way, but it’ll offer you options for your wallet for a similar effect/product. Do note however, that it is based on products I have tried, so whilst there are many save and splurge options out there, these are my views. You can find more under the category of Challenges.
Availability: Clinique at Clinique counters and Guerlain at Guerlain counters nationwide.
