With the rise in popularity of liquid lipsticks, lip glosses are still a classic choice to give you a glittery sheen and elevate any look. You can even layer the gloss on top your matte lipstick for dimension.
The holidays are rolling up and if you’re not stocking up on sparkling dresses yet, then you can rock these glossy shades for the yuletide season.
A classic red is always a good complement for the holidays. For a strong bold lip with a shine, the Burberry Kisses Gloss in Military Red (P1,407) will do the trick.
Burberry. Available at Sephora PH.
If you want a touch of berry pink instead for a flirtier vibe, swipe on TheBalm’s Read My Lips Lip Gloss in Pow! (P675).

Purple is a daring color to pull off but since vampy lips are on-trend right now, don’t hesitate to try it. We recommend Laura Mercier’s Lip Glace in Desire which has silver glitter reflects on it to give your lips extra shine.
