2020 The Year of The Balmy Gloss Trend
2020 has been the year of highly polarizing makeup looks. Barefaced beauties, Aesthetic whimsy, and high-voltage dramatic looks have all simultaneously flooded our social feed. It’s been almost impossible to navigate through this madness and find relatable, covid friendly beauty trends for our lips to embrace. Covid-19 and the consistent use of a mask has not helped our cause either. We soon found out that our former perfectly matte and saturated lipstick applications were ending up like freaky Joker-like smears: bigger horror shows than the virus itself.
Add to this confusion, the resurgence of 90’s fashion trends in the past few months has given us animal-prints, fuzzy cardigans, fugly floral prints circa Clueless (1995). It’s no surprise that this throwback has now penetrated into the global makeup scene as well giving a former gooey product a major comeback. Enter the Balmy, Lip Gloss Trend.
This new generation of lip gloss is different. Far from the formulas of the ’90s, these newly launched beauties are particularly formulated to be non-greasy and non-sticky with a high-shine finish. Moreover, they have skin-friendly components in them to nurture and pamper our parched lips too. In some cases, the glosses and balms have interchangeable qualities today.
