Be it a casual coffee date, a formal lunch or a romantic dinner, your lip colour always enhances your look. Perfectly moisturised, healthy, and shiny lips can instantly make you look like a diva.
Here are the 5 best nourishing lip balms, and delicious lip glosses for you to choose from for the perfect pout.
The Lakmé Absolute Plump & Shine glosses come with a slight shimmer, which becomes visible on application. The doe-foot applicator works really well and one sweep of the gloss is enough for a good amount to layer up. The company claims that it has a staying power of 6 hours but we feel that it stays on for about 4-5 hours with meals in between. Apply it evenly or else it would appear patchy, and remember not to smack your lips. They are sheer, not thick and best used over a lipstick. These come in 6 colours- Plum Shine, Berry Shine, Cherry Shine, Candy Shine, Beige Shine and Coral Shine. (Buy Here)
The Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine lip glosses are smooth and creamy, but not very pigmented. You can layer it on without it feeling too heavy and the product does not bleed. The staying power is for 2-3 hours. They come in 8 shades- Captivating Coral, Electric Shock, Gleaming Grenadine, Glisten Up Pink, Mirrored Mauve, One Shine Day, Plum Luster and Raspberry Reflections.
The Lotus Herbals Purestay range of glosses is creamy but sticky, and is better worn over a lipstick. Its stay on power is for 2-3 hours and comes in 10 gorgeous shades- Darling Lavender, Vintage Rose, Plum Delight, Iced Pink, Pink Hypnotic, Peach Pink, Rose Bud, Sun Kiss, Vibrant Berry, Nude Love.

The Colorbar True Shine lip glosses are full on shimmer glosses that look too shiny and glittery when worn on their own. They are best applied over a lipstick and stay on for 1-2 hours only, and come in 10 shades– Aftergolw, Starlit, Dazzled, Gilded, Radiant, Fab, Flash, Fairy Dust, Debut, and Illume. All of them look similar when applied on the lips- transparent and glittery, not giving out too much colour. So, if you own just one shade from this range, you might be satisfied with the colour payoff. If you do choose different shades, these are the recommendations based on your skin tone-
The Revlon Colorburst lip glosses are heavily pigmented and can be worn by themselves even as liquid lipsticks. They have a staying power of 3-4 hours with a light shimmer.
