What Colors Are Glossier's New Generation G Lipsticks? Zip & Leo Are Gorgeous — PHOTOS
It's a new season and that means you need new, refreshed lip colors! Glossier's Generation G lipsticks launched earlier this year and these lippies offer sheer but buildable matte pigmentation for your pout. Of course customers scooped them up, since the Glossier faithful is a devoted and diehard bunch. The brand is expanding and adding two brand new shades to the Generation G repertoire. The shades are available on Monday, Oct. 10. They are $18 a piece and as always, they are sold exclusively via the Glossier site, which is the brand's sales platform. What colors are Zip and Leo, the new Glossier Generation G lipsticks?
Zip has the distinction of being the first-ever red Gen G lippie. It's actually a poppy hue with a touch of orange and it gives me all of the "I look good on everyone" feels.
Leo is a warm, rich cocoa that shares its name with Kylie Jenner's maroon Lip Kit. But these shades are not similar in any way, despite a joint moniker! Leo takes its inspo from the '90s. Glossier created Leo to serve as the perfect nude for olive and dark-skinned beauties. Leo also works as pretty brown for fairer-skinned lovelies.
Zip 'n' Leo up the Generation G lippie lineup to six, stain-like and sexy shades.
Grab a choker, a pair of Docs, and slick this bad boy on your pout.
Zip totally, totally pops.
Adding two new shades to the collection isn't the only way Glossier has updated the Generation G lipstick range. The brand has updated the formula for all shades. Heck yes they did and here's how.
The Gen G formula now offers a creamy, dreamy, insanely moisturizing slick of color. The product formula now includes triple coated mica, safflower oil, and blue agave. Translation: Mega moisture! Those ingredients allow the pigment will glide across your lips like a ballerina. Gen Gs also wear comfortably on your pucker. You will not have to deal with annoying drying or cracking or caked on lipstick with these lippies.
You can wear the Generation Gs in multiple ways, because #options. You can swipe onto lips once or twice, directly from the bullet, for a fresh wash of color.
Or you can apply three or four coats for a deeper, more rich, and defined, "matte and all that" look of "Wowza" proportions.
You can use a lip brush, too. Or you can apply the Gen G from the stick and then use your pointer finger to dab for an unfinished, "just kissed my crush" look.
If you need a refresher, the Gen G lineup also features Cake, a warm peachy nude; Like, a powdery pink blush; Crush, which is a hot raspberry; and Jam, which has a grape stain effect and is gorge.
Anyone else notice something? "Like" is also the name of Kylie Jenner Gloss, which is a mocha brown. Again, the Glossier and Kylie products are nothing alike. They merely share a name and are both beautiful in their own way.
