12 Lip Glosses That Actually Don’t Suck


“Drip, drip, so slick, that’s my lipgloss”

We would be lying if we said that we weren't obsessed with smothering our lips with an assortment of flavored glosses when we were tweens. As we've gotten older, though, we started to venture into the world of high-end lipsticks, saying goodbye to our Bonne Bells and hello to super-saturated mattes.

But now, the pendulum is swinging back toward the glossy side of things, with even Charli XCX and CupcakKe singing the sweet praises of lip gloss (although it has an entirely different meaning coming from their glossy lips), and we are so here for it. Below, we picked 12 of our go-to lip glosses that are fresh on the market. Get lost in the gloss and add these tubs to your list pronto.
