5 lipstick alternatives for an instantly perfect pout
We’ve all got a friend who looks drop-dead gorgeous in bright red lipstick and manages to keep it immaculate from morning to night. Our own attempts last a few hours at best and seem to smudge with every meal, drink or kiss. While we'll always love a classic lipstick, there are other lip products on the market that provide longer life and better resistance against the daily elements.
Why not try a lipstick alternative? Maybe you've been sporting a classic lip look for years and want to experiment. Perhaps you fancy glitter or a metallic finish. To jazz up your makeup collection in time, look no further than the INC.redible range of lip sets, lip paints, lip glosses, lip quenchers, lip glitters and more. This brand bought you Nails Inc. and they’ve since expanded to include lip products, jelly highlights and sheet mask sets, to name just a few.
With all this said, never fall back on your old lipstick again. There are so many gorgeous alternatives for a perfect pout - here are our favourite 5 from the INC.redible range:
Go for glitter
INC.redible are taking glitter to new levels with their range of gorgeous lip products. The Glittergasm Lipgloss coats your lips with crushed jewels - an unbeatable look for a party! The flat applicator picks up countless glitter particles and smooths them over your lips for a pout that will leave others in awe.
For a quick-drying alternative to your usual look, the Glittergasm Toppers create a stunning look in seconds. Simply apply your usual lipstick and swipe a coat of eye-catching glitter over the top. Choose between four colours: bronze, red, silver or pink. The non-sticky formula is easy to apply and comfortable to wear - none of that wind/hair/lipgloss drama! The only thing for you to decide is which colour to pair with which lipstick. We think bronze glitter would look great over a classic red, or why not layer silver glitter over pearly pink? There’s plenty of experimenting to be had.
Make it matte
When you want to look effortlessly glam, nothing says low-key style like a matte finish. Smooth, quick-drying matte lip paint is the total opposite to shiny lipgloss and, while we love both, you can’t beat the Matte My Day paint. If you’re looking for a lipstick alternative, this might be the one for you. With all the smooth style of a lipgloss but none of the stickiness, it's soft as silk and just as luxurious. Its staying power is almost unrivalled - not only is it crack-proof and smudge-proof, the moisturising formula acts as an armour to protect your lips from the elements.
Have you ever considered a lip glaze? The Glazin Over lipgloss is the perfect place to start. Just one wave of the wand applicator and you’ll be under its spell. A single smooth swipe will enrich your pout with highly-pigmented, moisturising colour that dries into the smoothest glaze. Its unique finish is different from lipstick, lipgloss and matte lip colour - why not give it a try for yourself? With 14 colours ranging from pretty peach to ruby red, deep purple and boldest black, your only dilemma is which shade to choose...
Don't be jel
Much more than a tasty dessert, jelly is the next big craze to hit the makeup industry. The classic Jelly Shot stick in hot red, beige or pretty purple is one of the Lip Quenchers line, each boasting a stunning twist: a hidden centre. Iridescent glitter at the heart of the stick gently melts into the gel and enhances your pout as you apply. Alternatively, opt for the clear Lip Quenchers Jelly Shot which features a super cute flower detail displayed in the middle. Pretty inside and out, plus super moisturising.

Mad for metallic
We can’t get enough of metallic lip paint. Like other metallic beauty products, this cool and edgy look is one to watch for. The Foiling Around lip paint is a full-coverage matte formula that drenches your pout with smooth, futuristic colour. Choose between many drop-dead gorgeous colours and prepare to shimmer and shine.
