Five Best: Lipglosses & Shines

This month's Five Best is brought to you by the lovely beauty junkie and my friend Hayley Woolf...this girl has a real life obsession with lip glosses and lip shines, so I knew she would be the perfect person to do a little round up of the best products out there for my readers.

As I don't really use lip glosses or shines myself, I thought I would get a friend to do the reviews for me. I will be publishing guest posts whenever an opportunity arises, hope you enjoy them!

1. I’ve recently invested in Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant and it’s now one of my (many) handbag essentials. It describes itself as a ‘multi-tasking miracle worker’ but I solely use it on my lips to leave them moisturised and with a lovely natural shine; simple but effective and definitely will be getting a repeat purchase. £26

2. These Burt’s Bees Lip Shines (New product) are one of my newest gloss discoveries of 2014 and are quickly becoming my new found favourites. The hydrating lip shines provide plenty of moisture whilst adding a beautiful sheer colour gloss and subtle hint of colour. Made from 100% natural ingredients including sunflower oils they’re perfectly pretty on their own for a glossy pout, or layered with your favourite lip colour. My two favourite shades are Whisper, for a subtle colour and Blush for a slighter deeper lip. Price TBC

3. DuWop Lip Venom is probably my all time favourite lip plumping gloss. If it's good enough for Ms. Aniston then it’s good enough for me. The tingly formula uses essential oils to enhance lips’ natural colour to help achieve a fuller looking pout. I’m a huge fan of cinnamon and ginger (two of its key ingredients) which may help explain my love for Lip Venom. Thanks to jojoba and avocado oil, renowned for their moisturising properties, lips are also left hydrated as well as plumped. The only downside is, that at £15 for such a tiny bottle (3.5ml) it’s a little pricey and runs out pretty quickly. An alternative plumping gloss is Sally Hansen Lip Inflation – again I love the cinnamony scent. £15

4. If you’re a gloss gal then you’ll love the new Shine Edition Lipsticks from Bourjois; a clever formula that brings colour, shine and a subtle gloss to your lips. Another new discovery of mine of 2014 and I’m sold by the magnificent concept; ¼ lacquered pigments & ¼ gloss extract.  I’m not usually a lipstick queen and it’s not often at all that I wear them so I’m impressed with this new collection and their ultra-shine results. £7.99

5. Last, but by no means least, is the New CID Cosmetics i-gloss - a light up gloss with a mirror, what more could a girl want? A favourite of mine for the last 4 years, accompanying me all around the world from camping trips in Australia (who would have thought a light-up lip gloss would suffice as a torch!?) to nights out in South East Asia. I-gloss has a gel formulation that gives high-glam lasting shine. My favourite shades are Moonstone and Honey Pot. £15
