We never thought we’d see the day, but… we’re giving up (at least for the time being) our matte lipsticks. In lieu of these, we’re leaning towards the exact opposite: lip gloss. But don’t think of the goopy, sticky mess with a candy smell reminiscent of your teenage years. We’re talking high-shine lacquers that offer pigment, hydration, and superior texture. In other words, our most nostalgic lip product is grown up, and we’re all over it. Check out a few of our favorites!
