Fake it till you make it. Whoever first thought of strobing their lips took that motivation quote a bit too seriously. If you’ve made it to the advanced level of the highlight academy and can shine the light on your cheekbones and browbones with your eyes closed, it’s time to take on a new challenge.
Theoretically, lip strobing is a wise way of making your lips look fuller and plumper. IRL though, they add an intense amount of deliciousness to your pout, making it look almost as ‘Gram-luscious as those of the Jenners and the Kardashians. Good thing, Nykaa Cosmetics decided to be Midas for a bit and gave us an exquisite tube of golden glam.
Rightfully coined as ‘Golden Glimmer’, ethereal golden color marries a surreal glossy finish in this one-man glitter army. Drench that pout in this glistening formula for ‘em look-at-me lips. In the rare case where you still need more reasons to invest in a golden pout, we have lots and lots and lots.
- Talk about a shade of gold that flatters all skin types! You asked for it, you got it.
- Honestly, it feels like we’ve been looking for a gloss that doesn’t stick to our lips for dear life since the start of time. Congratulations to us, we finally found it.
- We love how the formula optically augments our pout, leaving it visually plumped and pillowy. The gloss glides on like a dream, picks up the light brilliantly and evokes three-dimensional lustre.
- Perfect adhesion so you don’t need to excuse yourself for powder room breaks during a cocktailnight.
- Since the pigment is extremely lightweight, you can happily layer different formulas to create a customized color before finishing off with this clever top coat.
