Hailie Jade Scott Mathers, 22, knows not only what it is like to be a daughter of Marshall Bruce “Eminem” Mathers III, 45. She also knows a thing or two about makeup.
On June 26, 2018, Hailie took to Instagram to share a photo of herself earning a black shirt. In the caption, she advised her fans to use lip gloss on the cheeks for a glowy look instead of blush-on.
Like Hailie, Kylie Jenner, 20, loves lip glosses so much that she created a company out of it. Formerly known as Lip Kits by Kylie, Kylie Cosmetics made Jenner the youngest ever self-made billionaire, according to Forbes.
On May 9, 2018, the young billionaire and her mother Kris Jenner, 62, announced their collaboration called the Kris Kollection, which was released just in time for Mother’s Day. The collection has lip glosses and a four pan pressed powder highlight/blush palette.
Another celebrity who uses lip gloss regularly is Chrissy Teigen, 32, who recently released her limited edition Becca x Chrissy beauty collab. She told the Hollywood Reporter that she prefers lip gloss over lipstick because the former is “so easy.”
“With lipstick, you have to do the liner and you kind of need a mirror,” Teigen told the publication. “With a lip gloss, I can sort of find my reflection in my clutch bag and still put it on.”
Both lipstick and lip gloss mix waxes, oils and pigments. But as compared to lipstick, lip gloss has less pigments, which are usually diluted or pale in color.
The principal components of lip gloss are lanolin and polybutene. Lanolin is the moisturizer while plybutene is the plasticizer.
Also called wool grease or wool wax, lanolin is from domestic sheep breeds raised specifically for their wool. On the other hand, polybutene is derived from petroleum.
