The new Glowwbox May beauty box is the ‘Get the look: Ombre lips’ edition and it’s giving us all full permission to get lippy this Summer. With beautiful bright lip shades, liners & brushes to play with, Summer’s about to get a whole lot fuller and colourful.

The Cailyn Lip Liner Gel Pencil has got to be the beauty box favourite. It is a beautiful brown lip pencil in shade Whisky Sour, which perfectly flatters brown skin tones. It also compliments a lot of nude lipstick shades and glides on so well to give the perfect pout.
The photo shows the lip liner paired with the Saturated Colour Lip Vinyl in Passion Peach, which matched so well and is great for an everyday summer look. The lip vinyl has a rich thick consistency to it, along with great pigmentation.


The Cailyn Luxe Lipsticks in Neo Candy and Banana are brilliant and bright orange and yellow shades. Although maybe just a little too bright, depending on your taste. They work well creating a bold ombre lip look, have lovely creamy textures and are highly pigmented. So darker lip colours from this brand would be very welcome.

The Cailyn Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint in Egoist is the perfect lip tint consistency, although you may find the pink tint just a little on the bright side. The texture is lovely, and it is quick drying with no expense spared on the extreme matte tint quality. Beware that you may need makeup wipes & moisturiser to soften it and remove it, but that just goes to show its long-lasting effect.

When creating ombre lips, it’s best to use colours in the same finish and textures because dry matte tints and creamy lipsticks don’t really mix that well together. Not just limited to lips, ombre is a great top nail trend also.

The Saturated Colour Double Ended Lip Brush is a fabulous tool for the precise application of creamy lipsticks & liquid tints. The defining end is retractable and it’s great that both ends each have lids, which makes it great for travel.
