Kylie Jenner made history when she launched her matte lip kits in 2016, and by now, every brand has come up with their own version of matte—powder-y matte, metallic matte, and creamy matte are just some of the many different types of mattes we’ve seen in the past two years.

Recently though, perhaps after seeing a whole lot of matte, glossy lips have made a huge comeback, and we’re honestly relieved. Don’t get us wrong, we love the drama matte brings, but there’s just something about a glossy lip that spells youth, radiance, and fun! Brands like Fenty Beauty by Rihanna have made improvements to the glosses we were introduced to in the 90s. Today’s glosses are no longer sticky and aren’t wildly glittery. In fact, it’s the subtle iridescence that makes today’s glosses the modern lippie. I picked out 3 of our faves from BeautyMNL, which I know you’ll love just as much as I do!

1. Max Factor Lipfinity Colour & Gloss in Constantly Coral, P595
How can you go wrong with something that lasts 10 hours? We love that it’s dual-ended (one end has color, and the other end carries the gloss) so you can choose just how glossy you want to go.

Shop it here.

2. Rom&nd Juicy Lip Tint in Summer Scent, now on sale at P537 (limited time only)
It’s always fun to wear a lippie that doesn’t just look fab but smells great too! You get the look of gloss with this one with the longevity of a good ol’ lip tint.

Shop it here.

3. Benefit Punch Pop Lip Smoothie in Pink Berry, P1,100
The color you see on the tube is exactly what you get—and we love how silky this feels on our lips. It seriously gives lips a fullness that’s natural and vibrant.
