Glossier Ultra Lip Review | British Beauty Blogger

[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’ve long said about Glossier that it’s the perfect mid-life brand when it comes to make-up at least, even though it’s very much targeted towards millenials (23-38 depending where you look). It’s a brand that’s genius at the sophisticated, understated look supposedly coveted by that group but it’s also a look or feel that mid-lifers often lean into.  Last year was a turning point in my make-up journey – bare skin all summer, the discovery of a signature lipstick, eye-shadow palettes all but kicked into touch. I’m glad to be wearing my kohl again, because for a long time I didn’t, but I’m reaching more for brown than black, and bare skin days are more regular than coverage days. I never say never, because dipping in and out as the mood takes me is fine, but a full face as standard is very long gone. I think there is a natural turning point for most of us when the entire menu of make-up just doesn’t feel like the right thing – less can be more and we know it! Personally, I’m picking at the canapes more than going all in on a main plus dessert and I think it’s a much more of a mood shift than a confidence shift although they’re probably interlinked somewhere.

Ultra Lip is just delicious – a perfect low maintenance summer mood with a palette of colours that aren’t full-on pigment but instead have the juicy look of a gloss with the nourishing texture of a balm. The shade level is vibrant without being overly strong and you can build the colour to a saturation level you like. They’re really very versatile and full of hyaluronic and buttery oils.

Personally, I can very easily wear all of the four shades I was sent, some less intensely than others but none of the shades felt ‘wrong’. Glossier calls these the (cashmere) sweat pants of lipsticks which honestly I couldn’t have put better myself – they’re truly luxury lounge in terms of ease and comfort.

So, here we are – from top left going round the clock: Coupe, Portrait, Villa and Fete. They feel like a complete snip at £14 HERE to the person (me) that spends £34 on something very, very similar. There are 9 shades available.
