Lip Gloss Is Back In Style - Officially (Move Over, Matte Looks)

If you're looking for a way to get the juiciest pout, lip gloss is the easiest way to get the job done. This is because the added shine from the product creates an eye-catching look that is sure to always turn heads. Plus, it comes with many options in terms of color, consistency, and pigment, which makes it hard for anyone to walk away without having one that's perfect for them.

While people have previously loved matte lipsticks and their long-lasting appeal, lip glosses are making a major comeback. Long gone are the days of super sticky lip gloss getting caught in your hair since the new generation of lip glosses are no joke. In fact, companies like Jouer Cosmetics are creating lip glosses that not only have amazing color options but are comfortable on the lips. "It has a wide variety of shades to choose from, and each gloss is full coverage with a beautiful pearlescent finish without feeling sticky," Garrett Hahn, beauty expert, told Byrdie. While many of us are very attached to our matte lips, lip gloss might be the simple push we all need.

Go for a nude lip gloss

Nude lip gloss is a must-have in anybody's makeup bag. In fact, these have become a staple in upgrading any look, whether you're going for a natural face or the most glamorous makeup look. "Depending on the look you are wanting, try going one or two shades lighter or darker than your own lip shade," shares makeup artist Denika Bedrossian via

Embrace a peachy look

If you want to add a pop of color to your lips without it being overstated, consider using peach-colored lip gloss to get the job done. The color peach looks amazing on most skin tones and provides a warm flush of color that anyone could benefit from.

A brown lip liner combo

If you want to add some dimension to your everyday lip gloss, combining a brown liner is the way to go. Plus, a lip liner will not only make your lip gloss least likely to smear outside the lines of your lips, as per Makeup Muddle but also create a stunning color. A brown liner can be used with any color but will look stunning with a nude lip gloss.

Add a striking red to your ensemble

For those looking to stand out, getting a bright red lip gloss is the perfect way to do it. After all, red is a universal color that looks amazing on almost anyone, so wearing it as a gloss is sure to capture a lot of attention. For a light flush look, look for lip glosses with a thinner consistency, and use more of a lacquer for a daring look.

Cherry Coke lips are timeless

If you want a soft introduction to vampy lips, cherry Coke lip gloss is the way to go. This dark brown color adds warmth to the face while adding attention to its dark color. However, with lip glosses like these, it's best to go for highly pigmented ones.

Candy apple lips

If you want a full, luscious lip look, candy apple lip gloss is the way to do it. To get this look take a burgundy lip liner to line your lips. Then follow up with a bright pink lip gloss to get the stunning look of a glossy apple.

Channel Barbiecore with a bright pink

Nostalgia is having a moment with the Barbiecore aesthetic, and pink lip gloss is one great way to add to that moment. For looks like these, the brighter, the better if you're trying to channel the iconic doll's lip color. However, to create the most pigmented look, wear bright pink lipstick under the gloss.
