Why Should Older Women Use Lip Gloss?

Why Should Older Women Use Lip Gloss?

In days gone by lip gloss was seen as a product for the younger woman: but those days are behind us! At Look Fabulous Forever we celebrate the beauty of ageing, and as a part of that mission we create products which are specially formulated to flatter and enhance mature skin.

Our lip products are no different, and when developing our makeup range, founder Tricia Cusden knew that it had to include a lip gloss. When applied with technique onto properly primed skin, a high shine lip gloss can really contribute to a youthful appearance. By creating dimension where the light hits the skin, shiny lips are apt to look full, plump and healthy. And while we love the staying power of our Lustrous Colour Lipsticks, nothing quite says glam like a rich, glossy lip.

Our Gorgeous Gloss Lip Shine

Our Gorgeous Gloss Lip Shine

Our specially formulated Gorgeous Gloss Lip Shine comes in four shades, so whether you’re after a high colour payoff, or you’re seeking to add high shine to your favourite lipstick, we’ve got the gloss for you. Our shades also span a range of undertones, from blue to peach, so you’ll find a colour match: whatever your skin tone.

We all covet the glossy lipped look, but what about the feel? Often women can feel put off by products that leave their lips feeling sticky and uncomfortable. That’s why we enriched our formula with nourishing olive and castor seed oil to provide a glassy, polished finish that feels like a lip balm, not a resin! The result is an easy-to-wear, kissable shine that feels good.

Watch our resident beauty expert Sally try on all four of our gorgeous shades:

How To Apply

How To Apply

Step 1:

Older lips need a little extra TLC, so for best results we recommend starting with our Never Feather Lip Prime. This will seal the edges of your lips, minimise pesky fine lines, and coat with a semi-matte texture that your gloss will glide evenly onto. 

Step 2:

Leave the primer to settle for a few minutes and you’ll be ready to apply your lip product. If using our clear Lip Shine, you may wish to add a layer of colour beneath it using one of our Lustrous Colour Lipsticks (otherwise, skip straight to step 3!).

 If so, the next step is to add a single layer of your favourite shade of lipstick using a Lip Brush. Using the brush will provide a smooth, even application of colour that sits beautifully under your gloss.

Step 3:

Now you’re ready to coat your lips with a generous layer of Gorgeous Gloss Lip Shine. We’ve done the hard work for you - the fuzzy doe-footed applicator will ensure you apply the perfect amount of product every time.

Simply dip it into the tube, then delicately glide the gloss over your lips, ensuring you don’t miss the corners! Purse your lips together twice to blot, then enjoy your sumptuously shiny pout!
