Matte lips? I don't know her.
Water, food, air, sunlight—these are the basic necessities every human body needs to survive. But the only thing that would make that list complete, for me, is lip gloss—it’s my desert island survival item. Balms provide moisture to dry, chapped lips while glosses do the same, but with a lot more shine.
My addiction to lip gloss dates all the way back to the cheap fruity, super-sticky Nicka K glosses that were on display at my local beauty supply store. Then, I got older and my standards became much higher. Now, my stash includes nutrient-rich hydrating formulas, colors beyond the classic clear shade, and finishes that run the gamut from subtle shine to globby, sticky mess—in a good way. Ahead, the only 17 lip glosses you need in your beauty stash. Trust me.
