I know lip gloss is hard to wear in our country's weather, but hear me out first. It's slick and sticky, and it's true you have to worry about your hair touching your pout. But allow me to convince you. Here are all the major reasons why lip gloss is here to stay:
It can save dry, flaky lips.
Obviously, its goopy formula can envelop your pout with moisture.
It makes you look youthful.
Not only will lip gloss remind you of your high school (or sixth grade) days, but a simple swipe will keep your look fresh and glowing!
Your lips will look soft and luscious.
Skip the lip fillers and fake Kylie-esque lips with lip gloss.
Beauty brands created very 2018, non-sticky formulas.
Thanks to technology and research, brands have created lip glosses that won't feel like glue on your face, hair, and hands.
Lipgloss has reached cool-girl status.
Millennial-hyped brands like Fenty and Glossier have come up with their own one-shade-fits-all versions, which sparked a frenzy among beauty junkies all over the internet.
Exhibit A: Glossier Lip Gloss
Exhibit B: Fenty Lip Luminizer in Glossbomb
It's best paired with your fave lip product: Lip tint.
K-beauty loves layering gloss over tint, which lends the bitten look.
In the age where we do almost everything for the 'gram, a few coats of lip gloss can be your ticket to a snatched selfie. If you're into highlighters, you'll know what I mean.
