Tinted or colorless, a lip gloss can be intended for other purposes that you can’t imagine. But before trying and testing its versatility, please remember these:

  • To lighten or lose the color of your lip gloss, you have to work it out first by getting a small amount and rubbing it with your palms or fingertips to make its color closer to colorless.
  • Like putting it on your lips to avoid making it look greasy, don’t overdo it too when using it on other parts of your body.

Moving on, the versatility of a simple lip gloss makes it one of every girl’s makeup stash. PSST! PH shares why.
