Best Lip Gloss

My 17 favorite lip glosses for all budgets


Cover Girl Lipslicks

For a drugstore purchase, you can't go wrong with Cover Girl's Lipslicks. At about $8, it's a basic gloss and Cover Girl's most popular gloss.

Maybelline SuperStay Lip Gloss

If you can't afford Chanel's lip color plus gloss, try Maybelline's SuperStay Lip Gloss, which is a much cheaper version of the color plus lip gloss concept. You put on the color first, let it dry, then apply the gloss. The effects are long-lasting. About $9.

C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine

The lip gloss contains peppermint oil so it not only refreshes and cools lips but it freshens breath with every lick of the lips. It's a super popular gloss on Makeupalley.com where reviewers loved the taste and the price ($7). It doesn't come in colors, but you can fill in lips first with a lipliner and then apply this gloss on top of it.

Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips

This gloss is touted by Bare Escentuals as a lip plumper. You won't find this lip gloss sticky or tacky and you'll love the moisturizing effects from the vitamins A and E in it. It'll also leave lips with a tingly and cooling sensation, which I loved when I tried it. Wear it over a lip color and use to replace your chap stick. It's more moisturizing. One of Sephora's best selling glosses.

L'Oreal HIP Jelly Balm

If you prefer a pot of gloss rather than a tube or a brush, this a great go-to lip gloss. It's not too shiny and I find the texture is a bit like Vaseline but not as thick. The shade is also lovely. A perfect gloss in a pot. $9

Compare Prices

L'Oreal Color Juice

L'Oreal's Color Juice lip glosses are great basic glosses. They aren't sticky, they last long and users love them. About $9 and up.

Compare Prices

Stila Mini Lip Glaze Trio

The quality of these lip glosses isn't the very best but at $8 for a trio, you can't beat the price and Stila's a pretty good brand. I love this as a gift because you can pick between three of Stila's most popular lip shades: Brown Sugar, Apricot and Starfruit.
