Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Heat Lip Luminizer + Plumper In Hot Chocolit Heat
Now with Miss Fenty right here, you know Rihanna has got our backs. While the brand has one of the most extensive lip gloss lines in the market, the one that stood out the most that had everyone looking to score one is the Gloss Bomb Heat Lip Luminizer + Plumper In Hot Chocolit Heat. The Gloss Bomb is the IT gloss and when Fenty Beauty dropped the shade Hot Chocolit Heat, the beauty community went absolutely feral. The brown shade makes your lips look utterly juicy and it’s plumping too, which is an added bonus. Definitely a lip product worth splurging on.

Clinique Almost Lipstick In Black Honey
The hype around Clinique’s Black Honey Lipstick is insane. The Almost Lipstick product line was popular in the community, however it has already been discontinued, much to our dismay. Black Honey, on the other hand, deservedly survived the purge. The colour looks great on all skin tones, and the consistency is flawless. It provides your lips with the necessary moisture while also providing colour. Truly one of the best lip products in the game.
