Blog: 6 Fenty Gloss Bomb Dupes That Are Just As Good


Fenty Gloss Bombs are so elite they need no introduction! They’re easily Fenty’s most popular product ever because they have one of the best, lip gloss formulas on the market. That’s a huge claim but it’s true, Fenty’s glosses are comfortable, hydrating, non-sticky, easy to wear and stunning – they are that good. But, if you have a Fenty gloss and you know how good it is, don’t you wonder if anything can come even remotely close?

Our favorite dupe for Fenty’s Gloss Bomb is the Maybelline Lifter Gloss. This is a new launch from them and they look and feel just like the Fenty Gloss Bombs down to the giant, doe-foot applicator. These glosses contain hyaluronic acid to hydrate the lips and look glossy and gorgeous on. They’re a third of the price compared to Fenty and such a good dupe!

Fenty Glow Gloss Bomb Dupes

Fenty’s Gloss Bomb’s is easily the most popular lip gloss formula out there so there are tons of dupes even down to the packaging and doe-foot applicator. Fenty’s formula is so good because it’s thin – it never feels goopy or gritty and it’s comfortable. Finding a formula that as thin is a bit tough but there are tons of dupes that are just as hydrating, comfortable, glossy and gorgeous.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does lip gloss expire?

Yes, lip gloss lasts around 12-18 months after opening it. It can last longer than that. But, if it’s older and smells gross or different then it did before, toss it.

How does one wear lip gloss?

Lip gloss can be worn alone or with a lip liner and / or lipstick. Fenty’s glosses are pigmented enough to be worn alone! They can be great for a quick lip but really it all comes down to preference and what you’re looking for.

Lip gloss looks really good with a liner paired under for a light base and to line your lips. You can also wear it with lipstick but for some, it can be thick to have on liner, lipstick and gloss. Lip gloss does not last like a matte lipstick does so it can be nice to wear a lipstick under so you have some color on your lips once the gloss starts to fade off.

How many shades does Fenty’s Gloss Bomb come in?

Right now, there are 6 shades available in the Fenty Gloss Bomb:

  • Glass Slipper – clear gloss.
  • $weetmouth – shimmering, soft pink.
  • Hot Chocolit – shimmering rich brown.
  • Diamond Milk – shimmering pearl.
  • Fu$$y – shimmering pink.
  • Fenty Glow – shimmering nude, rose.
  • Fenty also has released a few limited edition shades in their holiday sets so keep an eye out for those.
