If there’s something I really don’t need, it’s another lipgloss. Last month I actually went through my stash, plucking out the tubes which had gone off, were not quite-right colour-wise, or were looking a bit shabby and I filled up a carrier bag in record time. It was equal parts calming and horrifying, and I pledged that I would not buy another gloss unless it was completely perfect.
And that’s where Pat McGrath Labs’ Lust Gloss in Love Potion comes in.
It’s genuinely one of the most glorious lip glosses I think I’ve ever seen. A cool toned pinky nude shot through with a subtle gold glitter, this is one of those products I want to go out and buy 10 of, just so I’m sure I’ll never be without it.
Each tube of gloss is a generous size, and it feels wonderfully luxe to use. The formula itself is rich, and almost gel-like, and not too sticky like other glosses. It’s got a subtle sweet vanilla scent, and it wears well on the lips. I easily got about two hours before reapplying, and it feels rich and nourishing to wear. Unlike other nude glosses, Pat McGrath Labs’ doesn’t leave you with corpse lips – there’s enough pink in there to keep it flattering, and I’ve been piling it on everywhere from the gym to nights out!
