Dekadent | shop it
Inspired by stained glass, OCC’s newest lip product combines the pigment-rich color of its cult classic Lip Tar with a glossy-finish. Our pick, Dekadent, is a frosty plum variety with blue undertones that could go easily from day to night—it comes with a little lip brush and a vinyl pouch, making the transition a cinch.
Papavier | shop it
This elegant gloss gives a subtle purple glaze with just a touch of sparkle. Perfect for adding a hint of purple without too much intensity. The formula is nourishing and adds a perfect pop of color while soothing dry lips. Great for days when you want a finished look but your lips need a rest from full-coverage lipstick.
Royal | shop it
This icy lavender gloss has “Ice Queen" written all over it. It’s the edgiest of Lip Shine’s five shades, but still stays true to the brand’s feminine charm with a soft pink base. Formulated with organic oils and pure minerals, this gloss will keep your lips healthy and hydrated.
#59 | shop it
Want a lip color to take you seamlessly summer to fall? Look no further than this super shiny purple from Inglot. It can be worn sheer or opaque, depending on application, resulting in a stunning array of berry shades. The lip pots are packed with biomimetic peptide which stimulates collagen production in the lips for an all-day shine.
Hi-way Star | shop it
This blue-toned vegan gloss is packed with shimmer, so a little goes a long way. Armour recommends pairing it with a flirty cat eye, and we can see it with some silver eyeliner for a fun futuristic look! As with all Armour products, Hi-way star is paraben free, and gluten free.
