Throw back to late 90s’, when lip glosses are really popular. That was a tough era to go outside, since you’d inevitably wind up with your hair stuck to your lips. But now’s the time of lip glosses again, the beauty gurus predict that lip glosses will be back in 2017. The new crop of formulas deliver shine, tint, and moisture in a whole new way is back!
Nars Larger Than Life Lip Gloss
The teeny, short-bristled brushes allow for precise application, which is a good thing, since the glosses come in bold shades with surprisingly rich color payoff. They also go on smoothly and last for hours — something that’s largely unheard of when it comes to glosses.
M.A.C. Cremesheen Glass
Chances are, you hit M.A.C. Lip Glass hard during the late ’90s and early 2000s. Chances are, you have a good memory of exactly how flypaper-like it could be. Fear not: This version is creamier and far less tacky than the original. But that patent shine and classic vanilla scent are still going strong.
Make Up for Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss
First, there’s the truly jaw-dropping array of shades. The bold shades go on completely opaque — yes, you read that correctly — and the unique, spongy brush bends at the center, making it easier to paint on the formula in dainty, makeup-artist-like strokes.
Burberry Kisses Lip Gloss
It’s kind of difficult to imagine Kate Moss using lip gloss. But we’d imagine that if she did, this would be the one. Its finish is more dewy than intensely glossy, making it ideal for anyone who’s not entirely sold on the idea of crazy shine just yet.
Nyx Cosmetics Butter Gloss
The rich formula feels thick and moisturizing on lips, not heavy or sticky. It’s also supershiny, costs less than $5, and smells like cake. We’re having trouble finding the downside.
Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer
Leave it to Armani to make one of the most elegant tubes of lip gloss imaginable. The smooth, opaque color more closely resembles a liquid lipstick or stain — with a buttery feel that won’t dry out your lips.
Smith & Cult Lip Lacquer
We’ve been dedicated fans of Smith & Cult nail polish since its launch a few years ago. And the company’s line of lip glosses is just as obsession-worthy — for pretty much those exact same reasons.
Surratt Lip Lustre
We have a difficult time deciding what we love most about this line of lip glosses: the insanely cool offbeat shades, the creamy texture, or the staying power. Good thing no one’s making us choose.
Lancôme Lip Lover
This Lancôme pick has the shine of a gloss, the payoff of a lipstick, and the moisture of a balm. It melts into your lips, leaving them sexy and luscious, but not the least bit goopy. We love it so much, we gave it a Best of Beauty award two years ago.
CoverGirl Lip Lava
If you’re of the Rihanna school of lip color, this is the gloss for you. Every shade is statement making, thanks to its brightness, megawatt shine, and not-at-all subtle glitter. This is a gloss that’s ready to party.
Tarte Lipsurgence Skintuitive Lip Gloss
Like the twenty-first-century version of mood lipstick, this formula reacts to your lips’ natural pH, creating a flush that’s supposed to be perfectly suited to you. There are two shade options: Energy, a pale-petal pink, and Energy Noir, a deeper, moodier berry hue. We also love that the formula is spiked with vitamin E for an extra dose of moisture.
Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer
This light, gel-like formula glides over lips smoothly, leaving an even layer of pigment and just enough gleam. And no matter what, your hair won’t stick to it.
Let’s make your lips look shine by these lip glosses. Forget about matte or creamy lipstick, then go grab a new gloss to adding into your lipstick collection. Let’s throw back to 90s’ together, these lip glosses will complete your makeup look.
