We’re Here for the Lip Gloss Trend
Shop 17 of our favorites.
Liquid Lip Smackers, the Lancôme Juicy Tube, and, of course, MAC’s Lipglass—all staples of the ’90s, when pop music, crop tops, and the family sitcom reigned. Don’t forget Lil Mama’s epic Lip Gloss anthem. Even though it was often sticky and sometimes tasted strangely realistic (we’re looking at you, Dr. Pepper), lip gloss is still one of our favorite trends of that era. Just swiping it on—preferably in slow-motion style worthy of John Hughes—was enough to send all of your teenage heartthrobs into a frenzy.
But like the reintroduction of tiny sunglasses, chokers, and Full House into the cultural zeitgeist, lip gloss has been given life again. This time around, brands are creating massive color ranges, adding moisturizing benefits, and even including a few dashes of multi-dimensional glitter for good measure. With season after season of matte lipstick finally coming to an end, it feels incredibly fresh to rock a pair of ultra-shiny lips. Keep reading below to shop our 17 favorite lip glosses.
