Our lip gloss obsession was born shortly after buying our first tubes of Wet N Wild in middle school, and one look into our makeup bags confirms a continued devotion to the beauty staple. Many of our favorites were purchased at the drugstore for less than the delivery we just ordered for lunch. We love them, but there’s an unrivaled panache that comes with wearing a luxury lip gloss. The perfect pigment, the shiny-but-not-sticky sheen, the transformative power it has to make you feel fancy on even your frumpiest days—they’re precious beauty gems, really.
We took stock of the new luxury glosses out for spring 2016 and quickly decided that praise was in order. The five below represent the best of the best. Which one will you be wearing?
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain ($36, yslbeautyus.com)
YSL’s signature buildable lip color arrives in two new shades this season: Tangerinne Boho (pictured) and Rose Folk. Either one will give your look the perfect pop of color.
Nars Lip Gloss in Vida Loca ($26, nars.com)
We’ve been collecting Nars‘s moisturizing lip glosses for quite some time and will likely be adding this one to our arsenal. The new guava shade is seemingly named in honor of how we envision our spring: La Vida Loca. Sounds about right.
Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer Lip Gloss ($38, saksfifthavenue.com)
Made in France, this highly-pigmented gloss is infused with glycerine for hydration, and mirrors the depth of a lipstick when layered. Magnifique!
Chanel Rouge Double Intensité Ultra Wear Lip Color ($37, chanel.com)
Chanel just added this Tender Rose shade to its selection of double-sided lip color wands. One end delivers a base coat of pigment and the other provides a high-shine gloss.
Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30, sephora.com)
The punchy pinks and corals in Dior’s newest gloss range are some of the prettiest colors we’ve seen this season, though they’re just part of the collection’s appeal. The glosses are formulated with hyaluronic acid spheres that absorb the environment’s water to plump the lips.We’ll take one in every shade, please.
