Let’s face it; lip gloss sometimes gets a bad rap! But we think it’s awesome for so many reasons, so we’re here to help change its reputation. Here are 5 myths we wish to set the record straight on:
MYTH: The only benefit of lip gloss is shine.
Nope! Many lip gloss formulas, like the Pacifica Enlightened Gloss Nourishing Lip Shine in the summer Yuzen box, contain ingredients like coconut and antioxidants that help hydrate lips, which can tend to dry out faster than other facial skin (because we lick them, kiss with them, eat with them, and so on). Lip gloss also creates a barrier against the harsh elements that caused the dryness in the first place.
MYTH: Lip gloss always has to go over lipstick.
Definitely not true! Although clear or very lightly tinted lip gloss can certainly be used over lipstick to work as a type of sealer and add shine, it can also be used by itself to add a more subtle amount of color, or to add a natural-looking shimmer. Since it has hydrating properties, it can also be used in place of lip balm.
MYTH: Lip gloss is just for teenagers.
Not true! Well, it’s true that the flavored lip gloss craze of the 1970s (thanks, Lip Smackers!) was very popular with tweens and teens. But that doesn’t mean lip gloss is only for them. Women of all ages love the moisturizing, shimmering, protecting effects of lip gloss.
MYTH: Lip gloss is too sticky.
This could be true for some formulas, but not for Pacifica’s lip gloss. We’re not sure how they do it, but theirs never feels sticky or heavy.
MYTH: Lip gloss is out of style.
Absolutely not! In fact, if we have our way, it will never go out of style. It’s soothing and moisturizing and it looks great! Plus, Pacifica offers their luscious formula in six amazing shades—like Pink Coral and Poppy—which means there’s one for your every outfit and every mood!
