5 New Lip Glosses That May Replace Your Matte Lipstick


We love a good comeback story! 

Nikki Brown Jun, 08, 2017

For most of us, our introduction to beauty products began with a tube of lip gloss. Its high shine colors were a staple in our middle school lockers, but eventually replaced with lipstick.

Over time, the latter has evolved to include its own rolodex of variations, leaving gloss in the dust and our faint memories. We’ve spent the past couple of years infatuated with matte formulas in particular, but there aren’t enough lip kits in the world to block our need for nostalgia.

Lip gloss has made an unexpected comeback and now, a host of our favorite brands–like Glossier– are getting in on the craze.

This fairly new (and totally Instagrammable) beauty brand has brilliantly blended our obsession with lip kits and longstanding love for lip gloss. This handy duo takes the guess work out of matching shades by allowing you to blend and highlight the formulas or use each of them alone.
