Gloss Bomb. The name of one of the most raved about lip glosses since it’s launch in 2017, Fenty Beauty created and brought back the experience and excitement in lip glosses: The Universal Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer.

Now being sold in 3 different shades, (Original) “FENTY GLOW”, “DIAMOND MILK” and “FU$$Y” the gloss bombs have brought a new and fresh dynamic to everyone’s lip gloss game. Consider it the 21st Century version of every lady in the 30’s classically owning and applying their red lipsticks out in public. This is the definition of what the gloss bomb exudes and in this edit, I will be reviewing Fenty Beauty’s original gloss bomb from their collection in: “FENTY GLOW”.



Product’s Claims:

THE stop-everything, give-it-to-me gloss that feels as good as it looks: Gloss Bomb delivers explosive shine in one perfect rose nude shade handpicked by Rihanna herself, FENTY Glow. We’re talking the unicorn of nudes that looks good on everyone.

One luscious swipe of Gloss Bomb’s XXL wand gives lips more to love, while conditioning Shea butter enriches from within. Lips look instantly fuller and smoother, with a non-sticky formula that’s super shiny and has an addictive peach-vanilla scent you just can’t get enough of.

Drench lips in the FENTY Glow – it’s the ultimate finishing touch to every look.

Texture & Coverage: Noticeable-light

Fenty glow gloss has this beautiful rosy nude sheen that enhances the lips just enough to look fresh and polished. The texture has a very smooth, luxurious and non-sticky feeling. What I really like about this is that the gloss applies and sits smoothly, right from the moment you put it on to the moment it fades away at the end of the day. It allows you to re-apply with no flakes of residue that normal lipglosses can naturally do sometimes. This gloss also has a very pleasant and lightweight scent of which I couldn’t figure out what it was when I first tried it. It’s quite nostalgic and sweet with a clean and modern essence to it.

Best Application Method:

The Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb. Seriously. I’m slightly obsessed with is the XXL Applicator Wand. This, no doubt is partially the reason for the success of the Gloss Bomb. It makes everybody’s lip-application so much easier by not needing to reapply as much due to the amount of product that you get from the wand. Self-explanatory, I know, but I really wanted to highlight the appreciation I had for the wand design made for this product.

Lasts Up To 6 Hours (maximum)

Now, I know that naturally you will be expected to re-apply the Gloss Bomb throughout the day. Either because you wanted to revive your lips or because you’re just obsessed with applying the gloss as it’s really satisfying to re-apply. Six hours is actually a really long time for a gloss, let’s not forget that normal lipglosses can fade within or up to (approx.) three hours. So 6 hours is quite impressive in my opinion.

Tip For a Long Lasting Lipgloss: Prep the lips by exfoliating and moisturising your lips if you wish before finishing with the gloss bomb.

3 Best Lipstick Colour Options to Wear With the “FENTY GLOW” Gloss Bomb:

A Traditionally Nude Lipstick – This is one of the most classic ways to enhance a nude lip. A fitting lip combo for the colder months, keeping your lips looking plump and feeling hydrated.

A Coral lipstick – Perfect for the Spring! A coral glossy lip will brighten and bring out your youthful side, giving you a perfectly full yet natural look to the lips.

A Pink Nude Lipstick – This will be the perfect base for that classic but also glamorous result. A lovely combo to wear with a glam makeup look.


  • With 10ml of product, the Gloss Bomb is the perfect minimal lip option to wear on no-makeup makeup days, naturally enhancing your lips to look full and fresh.
  • Its sheer pigment gives you the versatility to wear it alone, or on top of lipstick to give a rosy radiant sheen.
  • Has a very moisturising texture, infused with shea butter to safely and smoothly soften and hydrate the lips with ease.
  • Beautiful packaging – I mean, who wouldn’t want to take out such a sleek and modernistic lip product out of their handbag.

Final thoughts

There is nothing more satisfying than applying the first couple swipes of a new lipgloss. And now with the Gloss Bomb consider the experience to make you feel extra glam and special. £16 is more on the high-end high-street price range, but if you think about it – to get 10ml of a concentrated gleaming gloss that will last you a long while is a quality to me. What I probably love the most about this product is that it just adds a healthy radiance to the lips. Instantly looking fresh and awake even on the days you’re not wearing any makeup at all. And that’s a win. Knowing that your lips will instantly gain a nourished, clean and gorgeous sheen whilst feeling comfortable in your own skin all in one.
