We admit that we’re gaga for lip gloss. We’re not sure when our fetish for this pout-perfecting product began, but we do know that from the very first swipe of cherry scented gloss, we were hooked. But with so many glosses available, it can be hard to choose the best option. In order to make sure your lips are kissable (Valentine’s Day is around the corner, after all), we thought we’d share our top five lip glosses for perfectly painted pouts.
perfect your pout
We keep going back to this healing lip treatment (about $23) with the perfect hint of tint. The richly moisturizing pout protector offers subtle shine without being sticky. Sugar, a natural humectant (meaning it draws moisture to the skin), black currant seed oil and antioxidants ensure your lips stay smooth and moisturized. After all, no matter how good your lips taste, they need to be soft to be truly kissable.
Mentha Lip Shine
If you’re looking for high gloss and a minty fresh taste, look no further. This simple but effective lip gloss (about $8) goes on smooth and silky, stays put and provides a breath-freshening burst of spearmint. The cooling sensation from the mint will feel great on your lips – and his.
Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Lip Shine
We can’t get enough of the sweet, fruity taste of this shiny lip gloss ($10) and we can bet your man will feel the same way. Providing a sheer pink sheen perfect for everyday wear, this gloss moisturizes as well as gives your lips a long lasting, kissable shine.
One of the glossiest glosses we tried, this option gives your lips a bold sheen with a hint of color. The long wearing, high-shine lip gloss ($22) comes in several (dare we say) delicious shades all with a subtle dose of flattering color. Choose from several flavors including bubble gum, cotton candy and honeysuckle.
Lorac Multiplex 3-D
Your man won’t need to don any geeky glasses to get the full effect of this fabulous lip gloss ($22). The ultra-glossy product contains holographic pigments for multidimensional, look-at-me color and shine. We especially love the texture – soft and silky, never sticky. Choose from several shades – or pick up more than one!
