The beauty world’s obsession with all things dewy has shifted from skin to lips. For a while, matte lips really had a moment—a non-shiny pout that’s full of pigment that doesn't reflecting the light. Now, things have changed, because the uber-shiny lip gloss is the trend to follow. Case in point: Celebs and beauty influencers who can't stop getting their gloss on. 

In fact, these days, there are plenty of sophisticated options out there. Many of them today are infused with vitamins, such as nourishing vitamin E, and oils that help keep lips hydrated while adding a plenty of shine. Whether you want to wear a lip gloss over your standard lipstick for an extra pop or on its own, over your natural lips, it will definitely make an impact.
