Lip Glosses That Put Your 7th Grade Tube to Shame
Lip gloss is back, but not in the same watermelon-flavored, frosty, stuck-to-your-hair way it was when you hoarded tubes back in early aughts. Gloss has gotten quite the makeover, now boasting plumping powers, richer pigments, and a more comfortable wear in addition to that signature shine. Whether you’re feeling nostalgic or just want something a little lighter on your lips now that spring is in full force, this roundup will introduce you to the 2017 version of your favorite product from the 7th grade.
CLINIQUE Chubby Plump and Shine Liquid Lip Plumping Gloss
There’s a new lip chubby in town, and this one gives you intense shine in the same easy-to-apply tube. The bottom of the stick twists to release a light-reflecting glaze that glides over your lips with ease.
Elizabeth Arden Sheer Kiss Lip Oil
You might want to call pigmented lip oils the grown-up version of lip gloss. Along with a sheer wash of color, these squeezy tubes deliver nourishment and moisture thanks to its formula made up of superstar ingredients like avocado oil and coconut oil.
SkinMedica HA5 Smooth & Plump Lip System
Gloss has long been the product choice to fake a plumper pout, and this duo does that and more. The first step is to apply SkinMedica’s HA5 Smooth, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your lips. Then, top it off with the HA5 Plump, which distributes a clear gloss and had a tiny bit of tingle to, like the name suggests, give you a fuller lip look.
CHANEL ROUGE COCO GLOSS MOISTURIZING GLOSSIMER
