best lip glosses

Get glossy, girl!

If you’ve been feeling like over the last year or two the phrase ‘lip gloss’ has been the topic of conversation a lot more than it had been previously, then you’re not alone. Thanks, in part, to the launch of Hailey Bieber’s iconic Rhode Peptide Lip Treatment, in 2023 alone lip gloss sales totalled US$508 million, with Google searches for the phrase rising 17.5 per cent year-on-year. The hashtag has over 1.5 million posts on TikTok and beauty brands have been launching new lip products left, right and centre. 

And while we’re not complaining (like, at all), with all the new (and old) lip gloss formulas on the market now, it can be hard to decide which one to invest in. So, whether you need five different ones (car lip gloss, bag lip gloss, bathroom lip gloss, bedside table lip gloss, backup lip gloss, you understand) or just one really good formula, these are the top 10 lip glosses out there right now.
