The past several years has been all about liquid lipstick so it’s nice to see that lip gloss is making a comeback. I have to confess… I was never all that huge on liquid lipstick. It’s drying, stiff, and gives no bounce to your lips. Plus, it’s impossible to apply liquid lipstick evenly when you’re on the go. I am super excited about the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb, as someone who is often rushing out the door.
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb, the Universal Lip Luminzer. What you need to know.
One thing about Fenty Beauty that I really appreciate is how much care and attention they put into ensuring their products would compliment a wide range of skin tones. This product is probably the manifestation of their mission to be suitable for all skin tones- so much that they define it as the “universal lip luminizer”. “Fenty Glow”, the only available shade, is a sheer mauvey light pink with the tiniest (and I mean the tiniest) pale gold flecks that gives the gloss its luminizing effect. It’s also has a nice sized wand and no-roll tube. Christmas shopping for my beauty obsessed friends and family just got way easier.
If there is a lip gloss you need to own, it’s this one. Here’s why.
There are several essential items you need in your makeup kit. You know, the stuff you will repeatedly buy and use through the years. The Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb needs to be one of those essentials because it has so many uses. Don’t even get me started on the formula. It’s something close to perfect. Light, slick- not sticky, and it smells delicious. The formula is wonderful because it can be beautifully sheered out, easily making it a multi-purpose product.
This is how I will use the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb:
- Lip Moisturizer (go light)
- Go to lip gloss with a bit of color when I’m in a rush but want to look put together (go heavier)
- Highlight (dab on high points of face)(any beauty oil will work for this too btw)
- Eye gloss (thanks for the inso Glossier)
- Substitute eye brow tamer
- Frizz smoother and stubborn baby hair (softening ends and short strands of hair that stick up)
- Over a lipstick/lip liner
- Emergency dry cuticle treatment
This product is perfect for people who are on the go and need a product that can have many beauty purposes. Personally, I hate traveling with a huge cosmetic bag. I bring only essentials that can be used in multiple ways. Bring less stuff, lose less stuff.
It’s a bit of a splurge, but the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb is worth it.
This product retails for $18. I realize that $18 is pretty steep for a product (a lip gloss) that can possible be duped with a drugstore product. But hold on… I have a few good reasons that can justify the cost. As mentioned before, it has so many uses making it a very valuable product. An $18 product with one use is not the same thing as an $18 product with a handful of uses. Also, I want to support Fenty Beauty for the amount of effort they put into creating beauty products for everyone. It’s a win-win-win. Finally, I just love the branding behind Fenty Beauty and also the detail they have put into the packaging of their products. So refreshing and unique! I highly recommend this lip gloss to anyone who wants a solid beauty product that has a variety of purposes. The Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb can be bought at Sephora, Sephora.com, and on the Fenty Beauty website.
