I think we can all agree that lip gloss is here Long Far from a sticky mess, we’ve all been swiping our lips in our early primes. These days, there are a lot of nutritious and inflexible options on the market, and right now, the trendiest of all is Dior lip oil ($35). The always-selling glossy balm hybrid is loved for its mirror shine, timeless color, and heavenly hydration — you can’t scroll through TikTok or Instagram without seeing someone faint. It really is a perfect product, if not for two major downsides: 1) Like I said, good luck getting it – it’s impossible to keep in stock; and 2) it retails for $35, which isn’t exactly cheap for a beauty product, let alone a lip gloss.
Lucky for you, we found an affordable trick that could topple Dior’s illustrious throne. Undone Beauty Poppa Gloss ($10) is totally glossy, nourishing, and totally trendy—and costs just $10.
Poppa Gloss, Sweet Pea – $9.00
Never sticky? Examines. Not a very globby texture? Examines. Moisturizing it Really Leaves lips softer and not dried out? Check, check, check. Poppa Gloss removes every non-negotiable lip gloss, just 10 bucks.
Like any good lip gloss, Poppa Gloss is a good glossy one. It has that luxurious sheen that leaves you feeling instantly gorgeous with just a few swipes. But unlike traditional lip glosses, it is not sticky or shiny. You can wear it and not worry that a strand of your hair will get stuck in your lips, or that it will leave the side of your water bottle covered in a shiny mess. Because it’s technically a shine conditioner hybrid (a la Dior Lip Oil), the texture is smoother and less sticky than other products, giving you an even luster that doesn’t feel like you covered your lips with personal lubricant.
Then, of course, there is the nutrition component. Remember in the ’90s when you wore your favorite gloss only until it exploded with just a sip of your drink, leaving your lips weirdly drier than before? Poppa Gloss doesn’t do that. It is formulated to hydrate and hydrate skin while wearing it. That’s because of the added cloudberry seed oil extract, which has become beloved in the beauty industry thanks to its heavy load of antioxidants that soothe and protect the skin. When you swipe it, it actually stays on. But better yet, once it stops, it doesn’t leave your lips feeling like a desert—they’re softer, calmer, and ready for another Poppa pop.
The colors are a sight worth seeing too. Like Dior, Undone Beauty has named its own color spectrum, from minimal hues to bolder, trendy colors that make a statement. While we’re fond of color, it’s the brand’s latest colors that capture our hearts. Barely pink ($10) It’s the prettiest, prettiest pink – kind of like Essie Ballet Slippers ($9) Transformed into a lip color. Or be completely neutral with clear radiant ($10), which is a minimalist dream.
Like we said, lip glosses have come a long way, and Undone Beauty Poppa Gloss proves just that. It also proves that you don’t have to break the bank over a product that looks And the It feels good while it is running. Swiping this stuff gives you disco-ball-level shine and moisture And the Color – only $10.
