Top Three Tuesday - Mauve lip glosses

Mauve is my favorite lip colour, the one I'd choose if I could only wear one colour on my lips for the rest of my life. For me mauve is a mlbb shade, the perfect shade that looks like my natural lip colour with a bit of extra oomph.

I'm constantly buying mauve lip glosses, they're one of those products that I buy over and over again, even though I already have more than I could use in this lifetime. As you can imagine, choosing my top three was extremely difficult. After much debate I present to you my top three favourite mauve lip glosses.

NYX Butter Gloss Angel Food Cake -The Butter Glosses get a whole lot of hype, some of which I think isn't justified. They are a nice formula but in my opinion they're just a gloss, nothing out of the ordinary. Maybe I expect too much, when a product gets a lot of hype I expect amazing things. Having said that, I do like the butter glosses, they smell great, have no flavour, feel hydrating and last well. I find the darker shades bleed a lot so I avoid them. Despite all that, the Angel Food Cake gloss is a beautiful, glossy mauve that looks like a slightly darker version of my natural lip shade. It made my top three list because of the beautiful colour, it really is the perfect mauve.

Burt's Bees Lip Gloss Nearly Dusk* -This is the lightest of my three favourites, it's shiny and sheer. I wear this when I want simple, no fussy make-up. Due to the sheerness I can reapply it without a mirror and it feels more like I'm wearing a lip balm than a gloss. Even better, it's all natural so I don't have to worry about the kids getting their hands on it. Whenever they see me putting on lip balm or lip gloss they want some too, this is one that I don't mind sharing with them.

Lancome Gloss in Love 351 - Ah my pretty! Gloss in Love is the gloss I wear when I want to feel grown up and sophisticated (whilst in my mummy uniform of jeans, t-shirt and sneakers!) It's like a hybrid of the NYX and Burt's Bees glosses. It gives opaque, hydrating and long wearing colour. Perfection.
