When it comes to lip gloss, a lot of us relate to this cosmetic powerhouse very differently. Some rewind to adolescent beach dates when hair would constantly get stuck to the lips, ruining that Polaroid perfect date. For others, it signifies a nostalgic scent of simpler times when they hoarded these precious tubes of colorful, liquid lacquer instead of candies and Barbies (it was a good childhood).
However, minor inconveniences and preferences aside, when you want something a tad more fun on your lips than just lip stains and don’t want to settle for your everyday lipsticks, glosses are just what you need. After much evaluation it can be said with confidence that these glosses pop, deliver and commit. Plus, they look so good, you can't really blame your hair for sticking to them.
Here’s Our Collection Of Top Lip Glosses:
1. I RED THAT
For those who longed to own the cult lip shade Uncensored by Fenty Beauty (one of Rihanna’s bestsellers) but your bank balance didn’t support it, today is your lucky day. The L.A. Colors Pout Super Shine Lip Gloss in the shade Juicy is it’s high-shine, low-priced counterpart. This phenomenal color is all you need to give a 180 turn to a possibly bad day, take it from us. Plus, it seriously delivers on hydration so you can skip your lip balm for this one.
2. MORE CANDY
What instantly drew us to the Nykaa Gloss it Up! High Shine Lip Gloss was the gorgeous colors. Some of us back here at the office are convinced that the shade Gal Pal from this range was magically flung from a cotton candy dream. Seriously, it’s the flirtiest hint of Pink that’s sheer yet noticeable. Enriched with a new light-magnifying technology, this long lasting lip gloss gives you an impressive color payoff with a shine that can last you an entire day (well, unless you decided to order a Subway sandwich for lunch).
3. Sweet Cherry
If you want to make a statement, there's nothing better than a Cherry Hued gloss to make 'em hands turn. Our pick: Kiko Milano's Unlimited Double Touch - 107 Cherry Red that is anything but boring. The color adheres well with a hold of upto eight hours, without drying up your lips. Also comes with a lip gloss for a bright, shiny finish; not to forget it's smudge-proof and is formulated without Parabens. Plus, this one will last through endless rounds of Martini, we promise. Add to cart already!
4. I’LL TAKE VANILLA
The Lakme Lip Gloss in the shade Vanilla is anything but Vanilla. You can do so much with this hue. It looks great on its own or as a topper for your favorite lipstick. Designed for the color-averse folks, this beautiful beige gloss is a godsent if you ever run out of your makeup stash. You can swipe it on your lids, cheeks, collarbones and even your shin (it’s a thing now). This is one of the best lip glosses you’ll ever find. For those who decide to go bolder overnight, shades like Bubblegum and Strawberry are equally impressive.
5. Diamond Shine
If you love the va va voom effect of glitter, then make the Colorbar Diamond Shine Lip Gloss in Midnight Liar your best friend. The unique light magnifying technology allows a gorgeous glass-like finish, which wraps your lips in a delicate, cushiony texture; plus, the formula is extremely hydrating and locks in moisture for a baby soft lips. Shine on with crystals that define your pout like no other!
6. THE COLOR PURPLE
We’re going to take it a notch higher and present something that’s going to give you a 3D effect to your lips. We’re talking about the Lotus Make-Up XXV 3D Lip Glass. Sounds fancy doesn’t it? Well, after testing this gloss for a week the shade Intensity grabbed our attention. This groundbreaking formula enriched with Lotus Essential Oil and a natural moisturizer is built to plump up your lips for a beautiful 3D glow. We're having trouble finding the downside.
7. SUCH A PEACH
Whilst curating this intense gloss list, we weren’t obviously going to skip one of the fastest selling glosses in the market. Nah-ah. For those who live under a massive rock, the NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss is a mandatory essential in every girl’s cabinet. The shade Peach Cobbler being a clear standout this year, this lightweight, creamy range has plenty to play with. Here’s an interesting point. The brand claims that this butter gloss line ‘tastes as sweet as a sugar cookie’. Okay, wow. Next time you crave that cookie, you know what to do.
