Lip gloss is a hot topic amongst the Makeup.com team. Some of us love it for it’s shiny finish (hi, hello, it me) and others can’t stand the sticky feel and minimal staying power that some formulas have. Our opposing views are exactly why I thought it would be interesting for all of us to review the new L’Oréal Paris Summer Belle Glowing Lip Gloss, a formula that I (spoiler alert) love and thought might convert my lip gloss-averse colleagues. Ahead, find out our honest thoughts on this new lippie.

I’m a glossy girl through and through, so I wasn’t surprised when I fell in love with the L’Oréal Paris Summer Belle Glowing Lip Gloss in Shell We Dance and the shiny, dewy finish it provides. What did surprise me, though, was the texture that felt more like a moisturizing lip balm than a traditional lip gloss.  I’m also obsessed with the gloss’ tropical, fruity fragrance that reminds me of middle school — and I mean that in the best way.

I’m VERY picky when it comes to lip gloss. Most glosses are too sticky, too shiny or don’t complement my skin tone. But I was pleasantly surprised by the L’Oréal Paris Summer Belle Glowing Lip Gloss in Sun-Day Funday. It doesn’t feel sticky or tacky at all — in fact, it left my lips feeling smooth, supple and moisturized. It has the perfect amount of shine if you’re going for a subtle, no-makeup look. And let’s talk about this color because I’m in love! I have dark skin and a cool undertone, and it’s hard to find a gloss that really complements my complexion. But this gloss in the Sun-Day Funday is the perfect match and will be my go-to all summer long.

Nothing makes my makeup beat feel summer-ready quite like a glossy lip. Add a cherry-like flavor and scent to the mix? I’m 100% sold. That’s why the L’Oréal Paris Summer Belle Glowing Lip Gloss in Tropic Like It’s Hot is my new summer go-to. The doe-foot applicator makes application feel super luxurious and allows me to coat my lips in just one swipe. It’s super high-shine, smells like summer in a tube and makes me feel like I’m on some tropical island rather than chilling in my suburban backyard.

When I first twisted the cap off of the L’Oréal Paris Summer Belle Glowing Lip Gloss in Sea You Soon, the sweet, fruity scent immediately transported me back to my pre-teen years — the last time I wore lip gloss on a consistent basis. However, aside from the scent (which I love — let’s be clear), this gloss really has nothing in common with the formulas I wore in early 2000’s. It’s not sticky or gloppy and it doesn’t come off minutes after application. Instead, this gloss feels hydrating and smooth and stays put. Plus, I love that Sea You Soon, a translucent pink shade, enhances my natural lip color.
