If what you’ve thought about upon seeing “lip gloss” on the title were those sticky ones back in the late ’90s and early ’00s…you wouldn’t find that here. Lip glosses made the best comeback you could ever imagine—bring us the modern versions of the lip glosses we knew. And we’re in love with them!
With the most joyous season nearing, it’s the perfect time to unleash the glamour in your lips sans the gloopy formula! Lip gloss should be on top of your makeup priorities in the coming holidays to make sure you’ll look no less than glamorous during all the festivities. Don’t know where to start? We do! And here are our best picks among the best luxury lip glosses nowadays.
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer ($18)
Starting off with a very fabulous brand with an even more fabulous owner, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna got your sheer lip needs in check with the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer. The shine that this gloss gives is just unreal that you wouldn’t want anything else on those kissable lips.
Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss ($29)
Bobbi Brown doesn’t only give you a shine with this Lip Gloss, but also a proper nourishment with the aloe extract and vitamin E content of its formula! This way, you know that there are no cracking and chapping situation when you’re sporting such a fab look.
Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in 765 Ultradior ($30)
Oh, Dior, you never fail to amaze us. Even in the gloss game, the luxury brand stands out as they offer this Ultra-Gloss in Nude with active ingredients that you can’t say no to. Added with a good amount of hyaluronic acid, this won’t only moisturize your lips but plump them for a few minutes. (We’ll take that over nothing, any day!)
BareMinerals Buttercream Lipgloss in Cosmic ($13.09)
A major issue of 90s lip glosses is that they feel so uncomfortable on the lips—which you wouldn’t experience on bit with BareMinerals’ Buttercream Lipgloss in Cosmic. The texture of this gloss is almost like that of a balm, so smooth and soft on the lips, but not tacky.
Pat McGrath Labs Lust: Lip Gloss in Bronze Temptation ($28)
You wouldn’t have any reason not to lust over this Lust: Lip Gloss in Bronze Temptation from Pat McGrath Labs. The best parts of using this gloss are the smooth application and the light weight of the product across your lips. The shine is almost blinding, too! (Okay, we exaggerated a bit, but you’ll know it once you try it!)
Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector ($26)
Clarins aimed to really make you fall in love when they formulated the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. It is far from being those ultra-sticky ones, with its creamy texture and a gorgeous shine.
Glossier Lip Gloss ($14)
Glossier always makes the most glamorous makeup products, and they obviously passed that on to this gorgeous lip product. The Glossier Lip Gloss will give your lips the “mirror-like shine”, of course without the hair-trap sticky formula that we all left behind in 2004.

What can we say, Hourglass remains refined and sophisticated with every piece that they come up with. Especially this Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss that provides you with that glamorous sheen without looking tacky and feeling heavy.
