Not too long ago, wearing lip gloss felt about as grown-up as ordering chicken fingers at a fancy restaurant. But, oh, how the makeup tables have turned. One of the few bright and uncomplicated spots in this otherwise downer of a year is the re-embracing of these juicy nostalgic potions that take lackluster lips to freshly-glazed-doughnut levels of delight — because we all deserve to have a little more fun.
New fall 2020 lineups from top beauty brands are overflowing with a parade of just-launched lip glazes — which, IMHO, points directly towards gloss making its big comeback. With Zoom swiftly replacing everything from work meetings to happy hours, a little lip shine goes a long way to perk up your look and lighten up your mood. Ahead, we've rounded up the glossiest tubes that we'll proudly slick on our smackers all autumn long — from Fenty Beauty's Luscious Lip Balm to Maybelline's Lifter Gloss and beyond.
