After years of matte lip craze, lip glosses have made a comeback in recent months as mega beauty brands introduced high shine formulas that promise to smooth lip surface and top off your lips with a dramatic gleam. Best part—these new age formulas feel more cushiony than ever, don’t feel sticky like their late 90s predecessors, and most of all, feel lightweight on lips. And no matter what your preference may be, you’ll be spoilt for choice as there is literally something for everyone: from glitter-infused, pearlescent, holographic, metallic or good old vinyl effect.

That’s not all, the latest lip glosses are also enriched with lip conditioning ingredients like botanical butters and antioxidants to nourish and protect lips from UV damage. For a fuller pout, apply lip gloss directly onto the centre of your lips on both upper and lower lips and blend towards the sides. Or dab a bit of product onto your lips with your fingers to add a natural shine that’s perfect for everyday wear.
