This Just In: Lip Gloss Isn’t Sticky Anymore
As demonstrated by 12 tubes below.
We’re tempted to say that lip gloss is making a comeback! But, technically, it never really went anywhere—its formula was just revamped when we weren’t paying attention. And—big news—it isn’t all get-your-hair-stuck-in-it sticky anymore. Gunky? Nope. Shimmery, hydrating, and so, so pretty? Yes! Glistens when a sunbeam hits it? Even better! Can you tell we’re excited? From the OG glassy tubes to the sparkle-enhanced, and even the plumpers (they’re back too!), here are the glosses making up our front line.
Nothing overcomplicated or fancy here. Except for the texture—velvety, smooth, not at all gloopy. Glossier just launched one following this exact MO. Just pretty, clear, straight-up glosses. Wear them over a bare lip and skip the lipstick altogether.
Replete with itty-bitty specks of sparkle to twinkle just so under the sun. Think iridescence. Okay, so yeah, it’s Jawbreaker, but that’s a good thing!
Call us masochists, but we looooove the tingly feeling of a plumping lip gloss on our lips. The effect is subtle but just enough of an enhancement to make people question if you’d had fillers—in a good way.
