I’m the sort of girl who happens to wear whatever lip gloss ended up in my clutch the last time I wore said clutch. If it’s bold and deep and red, I’m vampy for the night. Pretty and pink and sticky? I can rock that too. The truth of the matter though is that my way of doing things is just wrong. A girl should consider such things more carefully.
Is she going to be kissing a lot of boys hello? Color stay, please! Is she going to encounter more of the air kiss crowd? High-gloss can work! Is she feeling pink or red or sheer or matte? Certainly something to think about! We chose eight very pretty lip options in the slideshow above so you’re perfectly prepped for your holiday season.
