Matte lips are lovely but what about those of us who want some gloss?  We’re a long way from adding a little bit of Vaseline to our lips to make them shine.  We’ve all done it.  These days, however, we prefer a nice lip gloss or two (or five) to bring some subtle pizazz to our pout.   So what are some of the top lip gloss options currently on the market?  Stick around and we’ll tell you!

Okay beauty lovers, what lip gloss do you put on your lips?  Which ones are you loving this season?


  1. I used to STAN for Bobbi Brown’s products but they’ve recently changed their formulations. For a $30 lip gloss, I’m expecting $30 performance and it no longer does it for me. I will have to give Buxom a go! I am all for a nice lip plumping gloss!
