For a lip gloss with a difference, get your hands on Belmacz Glow gold-leaf lip gloss. Created by the jewellery brand Belmacz (Julia Muggenburg introuduced Belmacz Beauty in 2008 as an extension of her work as jewellery designer), it’s always a best seller at the fabulous, cult Parisian store Colette. The gloss is available in several shades, including Moonstone, Pink Pink, Scarlet, Ruby and Infrared, and they all contain gold leaf – giving your lips an extra depth of shimmer that I haven’t seen in any other lip gloss. I tried the Infrared, which is a rich shade of red with an unusual depth of colour. As you open the container you can see the gold leaf in the product making you feel very special indeed! The texture is soft and it stays on for hours.
Glow’s ultra-soothing formula blends natural ingredients renowned for their healing properties including candelilla cera – a vegan alternative to beeswax – and skin nurturing capric triglycerides.
