Here are the finest lip glosses you should have in your bag right now.

Lip glosses are glinty, ethereal, and glossy and iridescent. It may be sultry or subtle, and it frequently plumps your lips as you wear it. Lip gloss can be sticky a lot of the time. So much so that we’ve heard horror stories of our hair, faces, and other opposable appendages becoming stuck, smudged, or literally bonded to the product on our lips.
