This holiday season, we’re obsessing over lovely layers and perfect pairs… for your lips. Lip Sheer + Lip Gloss will give you a rich pop of color and even more options to play with. Together with Christy Coleman, our celebrity makeup artist and Head of Innovation at Beautycounter, we’ve crafted subtle and bold combinations that are universally flattering.


The Love & Luster Gift Set is the perfect place to start: it’s a modern mix of smooth shades and shimmering tones. We’ve used two of the glosses from the set to show you how you can rotate your previous go-to looks (and Beautycounter Lip Sheers you might already own) with a mix of glistening seasonal colors you’ll be dying to debut.

These glosses are high-performing without sacrificing stylish colors. The silky-smooth, long-lasting formula is lightweight yet ultra-moisturizing. Plus, it’s made with safer ingredients: jojoba seed oil and carnauba wax (a Brazilian plant) to promote long-lasting shine, and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant with hydrating and skin-conditioning properties.

Plum + Ruby


Layer up these vibrant colors for a festive berry-red lip that immediately reminds you it’s time for the holidays.

The Pairing: Lip Sheer in Plum and Lip Gloss in Ruby
Pro Tip: Take this look from day to night by adding dramatic long lashes with the Lengthening Mascara.

Nude + Blossom


A frosty nude with a hint of pink is truly the accessory that goes with everything. Day or night, this shimmery look works on all skin tones. Add a smokey eye or dark liner and you’ll be ready to hit the holiday parties.

The Pairing: Lip Sheer in Nude and Lip Gloss in Blossom
Pro Tip: To get the full look, use the Winter Warmth Palette or the Winter Dream Palette.
