At Beauty High we constantly have new products crossing our desks and are always on the hunt for the next best thing. “The One Thing” is our way of sharing with you that must-have product that you need to introduce to your lives right now, whether it’s from a drugstore or a department store.
Lip gloss has been a staple in our own personal makeup collections for as long as we can remember. As Lil’ Mama once told us, it’s poppin’ and cool. And if you’re asking us, it’s still the perfect way to top off any look. A fun alternative to a lipstick or stain, it gives off a glossy luster in tons of pretty tones, most commonly pink, nude, or red. The only downside? The annoying sticky residue that every gloss leaves behind, plus that whole “hair sticking to lips” thing that inevitably happens on a windy day. It’s impossible to kiss and not tell when wearing it. But thanks to Maybelline’s new Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Gloss, there’s a new, non-sticky way to shine! Trust us, it’ll soon be the one thing you can’t leave the house without.

What Makes It Different:
- Say goodbye to stick! This product revamps a traditional gloss by leaving your lips 100 percent not sticky! Instead, it leaves you with a shimmering, creamy finish.
- It’s a Baby Lips product—so you know it’s bound to give you some much needed moisture. Combining a lip balm with a gloss, your lips are guaranteed to stay shiny and hydrated throughout the day.
- You’ll never be left feeling dry with this new and improved formula. A boost of hydration in this formula means smooth lips for up for four hours! Get ready to pucker up!
Why It’s The One Thing:
You can ditch the “balm before gloss” step in your everyday beauty routine with this new product. The lip balm-meets-gloss gives you the best of both worlds with its vitamin E and essential oils-infused formula. A little goes a long way, too. It’s long-lasting formula will leave you with the perfect pout for hours on end—meaning you won’t have to be reapplying constantly. And that annoying sticky feeling you typically get with a gloss? Completely gone! Its creamy finish eliminates any stick, so you won’t be fussing over your lips all day long. Instead, you’re left with smooth and soft lips that are sure to turn heads. Grab a gloss to match any outfit—it comes in 12 shades in three different finishes: the Shimmers, the Creams, and the Jellies. With that many choices, you have all the options you need to complete any look!
