Here at the BIZ we have been getting springy with it thanks to DHC and their lovely lip glosses called DHC Moisture Care Liquid Lipcolor EX ($18). We have some longtime DHC favorites, such as our constant re-buy and holy grail Silky Cotton Squares so we were very intrigued with the new lip glosses that promise beautiful lips just perfect for spring.

DHC says that their Liquid Lipcolor does “double duty” as skincare infused lip shine that is ultra hydrating. It gives lips sheer color with just the right amount of pigment and shine within a long-wearing formula. Ingredients include hyaluronic acid for mega hydration, along with peptides and marine collagen to plump lips and soften fine lines. The end effect: soft lips with lots of shine and a perfectly polished look.
As advertised, the Moisture Care Liquid Lipcolor EX is sheer but beautiful. It gives a light color and tons of shine, which is a nice change of pace from the opaque matte colors I have been wearing for the past few months.
Tea Rose RS103 is the lightest of my three shades, giving a slight rosy tint that is great for daytime. It’s one of those shades that you throw on before running around doing errands and it’s also a great option for the workday. If you like a low maintenance, soft makeup look you are going to love this one.
Plum Currant RS104 has a bigger color payoff than the Tea Rose with a soft plummy shine. It’s still subtle and feminine and has tons of shine which makes my thin lips look bigger. I love this one all day and all night – the slip is great and it keeps my lips soft and hydrated.
Soft Citrus RD106 has a burnt orange tint with a shimmery, shiny finish. This isn’t a color I usually wear. I tend to go for cooler shades, like pinks and plums. So Soft Citrus is a nice addition to my collection and is a great choice when I wear warmer colors. This is the deepest shade of the three I have, although it’s still relatively sheer and definitely super shiny.
Overall I really like these lip glosses. If I had one complaint, it would be the solid color tubes – I never know which shade I am grabbing if I have a few in my purse! But it’s a minor complaint that is outweighed by the wonderful shine and hydration of these soft springy shades.
Before I begin describing these two shades you need to know that these feel like silk on my lips. They are incredibly moisturizing and not one tiny drop sticky. The feel of these keeps me from snacking without thinking because I love how my lips feel when wearing these.
Pink Lotus PK101 is the lightest of the 5 available shades. It’s the sweetest soft pink with a tiny amount of shimmer. You can’t feel the shimmer and you can barely see the shimmer so why is it there? To give your (my) lips texture and make them looking luscious. There is color but it’s a very light color, I love that kind of look!
Orange Blossom OR 108 is a beautiful peach with pink undertones. I could wear this daily and never get tired of it. The texture is thicker than my pink one so it feels like it’s imparting more color on my lips. It too has that eensy bit of shimmer that makes my lips look a little plumper (a miracle).
The wand on these looks familiar but it feels different than other wands. It’s very soft and bendable so you need to look in the mirror when applying so that it applies properly. I don’t need to double dip with these hydrating lip glosses since one wand is enough to beautifully fill in my lips.
I rarely wear a gloss on its own but the way DHC feels makes me so happy that foregoing a lipstick is just fine. Since I’m the one who always describes the scent I’m happy to report that there’s no taste and no fragrance. If I sniff the wand alone I notice a slight aroma but once on my lips all I notice is soft as silk lips and shiny beautiful color.
You can’t go wrong with any of the 5 shades. They’ve created some universal shades that are going to make your spring and summer even happier. DHC is mostly known for skincare but these liquid lipglosses prove that there’s a lot more to DHC than first meets the eye.
