Best Potted Gloss: The Lip Slip by Sara Happ $24. Creator of the uber-popular Lip Scrub, Sara Happ has developed a lip balm that hydrates, adds colorless shine, and transforms the look of lips. A little dab goes a long way, so this pot of gloss is well worth the bucks!
Best Lipstick That Shimmers: Dior Addict High Shine $26 (love it in Catwalk Mauve 680!) Not your mother’s lipstick, Dior offers a high shine, translucent lip color inspired by their ultra-chic fashion runway shows! The color is long-lasting and sure to drum up some compliments… even from mom!
Best Gloss With Sun Protection: Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster SPF 15 Lip Gloss $25 (love it in Brightening Pink!) A perfect gloss that adds a sheer hint if color, packed with tons of shine, plus an SPF! A to-go gloss for everyday use. Find it also at Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus.
Best Gloss That Glitters Like Gold: It’s a tie! MAC Cosmetics Tinted Lipglass (yes, that’s lipglass not lip gloss!) $14 (pictured top) and Chanel Glossimer $27. Both lip glosses are thick and shimmery, go on smooth and last. Great alone or over a lip pencil and/or lipstick. Love MAC Lipglass in Lychee Luxe (for a hot coral shade) and Chanel Glossimer in Seashell (for a soft peachy shine).
Best Lip Gloss That Acts Like A Lipstick: Comsoholic Lip Gloss $20 (love it in Prudish Pink) This up-and-coming lip gloss (created by Julie Cohen in MA) is packaged like a gloss, is applied like a gloss, but wears like a beautiful matte lipstick with a hint a shine! Genius! This “liquid lipstick” is a must have in the make-up bag!
Best Lip Pencil That’s More Than a Pencil: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil $24 (for red, Cruella is beautiful!) Not being a huge fan of lip pencil because of their tendency to be over-drying and painful to but on, NARS has created a perfectly smooth pencil that acts more like a soft crayon. Filling in lips is easy and pain-free with this Velvet Matte Pencil, available in a variety of shades, perfect for creating a long lasting look under your favorite lipstick.
Best Gloss with Plump: Laura Mercier Lip Plumper $30 (love it in Wildberry!) Give this silky smooth lip gloss 20 minutes and you will have plump lips for 2 hours! Won’t burn or tingle too much (hate that), this gloss is a favorite for pretty color with added pout!
