Most of us can consider lip gloss as the first makeup product we were allowed to wear, right? They sold them at Limited Too and were harmless: the sparkly, gooey finish was relatively transparent. If anything, it looked like leftover Kool-Aid on the lips with a high-shine finish. But as we’ve grown, so has lip gloss!
From subtle shades to major drama, there are a variety of finishes to choose from, as well different formulas you can use to achieve the look. Lip oils are trending because of their skin care benefits and light wash of color; lipstick sheers might not have as much of a wet finish, but they give the lips a little shine with the ability to define the lips, too. And OG lip glosses have gotten upgraded to products that can highlight and enhance your pout and can even be as opaque as your favorite lipsticks.
