A girl can never have too many lip glosses. From super-shine and vitamin-enriched formulas, to long-wears and sparkly sheers, there’s a gloss for every look. Plus, they’re super versatile to experiment with on top of different lipsticks and liners.
Check out five of our fave staple looks—then have fun improvising your own.
The Every Day Lip
Every girl needs a go-to gloss. When you’re looking for your next must-have, look for glosses that are neutral or close to your natural lip color. And make sure you have a clear gloss, too. It goes a long way for that quick, polished pout, perfect for weekend coffee runs or a 2-minute makeup job.

The Showstopper Smile
Need a knock ‘em dead look? Put your lips center stage. Try a neutral eye, then go bold and bright with a red lipstick (blue undertones make your teeth look whiter!) Top that with a quick coat of a super-shiny gloss for maximum red-carpet effect. Not ready for full-on red lips? Try a swipe of bright red gloss over bare lips for a subdued (yet still glamorous) take.

The Girly Gloss
Flirty looks and glossy lips go hand in hand—but the trick is to go subtle. Line your lips with a pencil that’s one shade darker than your natural lip color. Press your lips together to blend in the color, then top it with a light pink gloss with a hint of shimmer.

The Edgy Pout
Sometimes you just want to feel sexy and nothing screams vixen like an uber-shiny pout. Look for rich, mega-watt glosses, then just choose your color. For a bold, rock and roll vibe, top a deep- or bright-hued lipstick with a complementary gloss.
