Full disclosure – I’m a lipstick snob. I’ve tried every brand from high-end to drugstore, lip stain to lip gloss, plumper to liner. I can tell you which brands have the best color, lasting power and hydration. But, for reasons unknown, philosophy’s makeup line has never been on my radar. Philosophy has always been a personal favorite for fragrance and skincare, so I was especially excited to put their divine lip line to the test.
The philosophy divine color luxurious lip color & lip gloss duo features a creamy, full-coverage lip color and a moisture-rich lip gloss that provide a punch of shine. Together, they enhance the look and feel of lips. This season, I’m all about nudes, so I tried their Nice Nude lip color paired with Sun-Kissed Rose lip gloss.
The color stays put and when it does wear off, it leaves your lips hydrated and not dry like some lipsticks. The lip gloss is creamy, not tacky. Together, the color and gloss combo is subtle but sexy – ideal for summer or when you crank up the eye makeup.
This duo ranks toward the top of my go-to favorite lipstick brands. They have other color combos and formulations on my list to check out.
