Thank you for your query.
This sounds like an allergic reaction to the moisturizer . I suggest that you discontinue both the moisturizer and lipgloss , when the rash disappears you can try to re-introduce the lip gloss. Please consult a doctor regarding the rash, he may prescribe anti-histamines and topical cortico-steroids if necessary . I trust this information is helpful.
