Guest Post: Favorite Lip Glosses For Summer

Hey loves!
Today's guest post is brought to you by Aly from Wonderland Beauty. Please check out her blog and leave your lovely thoughts in the comment box :) I will definitely check out your favorites Aly! I love trying new products! And thank you for being part of the Dark Side :)


Hi! My name is Aly and my blog is www.seventhingsbeauty.blogspot.com. I'm so excited to be doing a guest post for The Dark Side of Beauty, since I'm quickly becoming obsessed with reading all of Nancy's posts! I thought that for my guest post I would love to list some of my favorite lipglosses for summer!  I love glosses, but so many feel really heavy, too heavy to wear in summer. I've only found a few lipglossess that are lightweight and also are  really glossy and not sticky! I figured I could share those with you today! 

I absolutely love the Essence Stay With me Lipgloss in the color Trendsetter. At first glance, it looks really bright and really intense. But when applied to the lips, it's sheer but still gives you a great pop of color. The texture is kind of thick and like a jelly, it's not super thin or runny, it's more thick and creamy. It glides onto the lips so smoothly, and I was super impressed, since these glosses are super inexpensive at ULTA!

I'm also loving the Beauty UK Lip Lust in the color Sweet  Sixteen. I got this in a blogger swap, and this is my first UK lipgloss! :) The color is a really pretty sheer pink with sutble shimmer. This also smells amazing, kind of like berry! Everytime I wear it, I'm greeted with an amazing fruity scent. It stays on long, too- perfect for summer when you are to on-the-go to reapply!
Natural Collection Juicy Lips in the color Fondant is another UK lip gloss that I'm obsessed with! Worn alone, it's a beautiful milky, peachy pink. {It's also a spot-on dupe for Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Barely Legal!}  but worn over pretty much any lipstick, it's just a shiny wash of beautiful pink color. Consider my obsessed.
Clarins Natural Lip Perfector in Shade 02 is the best peachy creme color in the world! It also smells heavenly, just like a MAC lipstick! Sugary sweet, with a bit of vanilla mixed in. The color is an amazing thing to wear on low-key days, since it looks natural and chic at the same time!
And lastly, Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Romantique! This is in the running to be my ultimate favorite lip product! The color is gorgeous, a sheer pink with golden shimmer, and I wear it nearly everyday. It also looks amazing paired over MAC Lovelorn lipstick. I have the sample size, but once I use it all, I WILL buy the full sized one!
Thank you so much Nancy for letting my guest post on your great blog!
