Looking for a great lip gloss that stays put and isn’t sticky? These are the best lip glosses as chosen by makeup artists.
Are you more of a lip gloss person than a lipstick girl? You better listen up because we asked makeup artists their favorite products, and this week it’s all about glosses. (If you do like lipsticks, check out the makeup artists’ picks here, along with their selections for the best eyeshadows, foundations, and mascaras.) The right lip gloss gives you intense shine but isn’t so goopy that it attracts every hair follicle on your head. It has a nice touch of color and lasts a decent amount of time. Some glosses tick a couple of the boxes, but these lip glosses deliver and have earned spots in makeup artists’ bags.

Check out the lip glosses that makeup artists love:
1. Dior Addict Gloss in 553 Princess, Dior
Makeup artist and Artis brush founder Matthew Waitesmith loves this cult favorite gloss, particularly this shade sparkling pink shade. He says, “[It has] a smooth, creamy and hydrating formula that adds sheer color and freshness to the lip.”
2. Amore Matte Lip Color Creme, Milani Cosmetics
If you want a product that lasts, you don’t have to worry about constantly reapplying this one picked by Taraji P. Henson’s makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff. She says, “Lovely shades that feel like velvet and last for hours on end.” It’s more a liquid lipstick as opposed to a gloss, but it is still worth a spot on your makeup bag.
3. Lip Vex, Sigma Beauty
Forward Artists makeup artist Samuel Paul selected this budget-friendly gloss. He chose the range because “[they have] creamy not sticky texture with a perfect amount of sheer lip-enhancing color.”
4. Levres Scintillantes Glossimer, Chanel
Forward Artists makeup artist Kathy Jeung and makeup artist and lash designer Monika Crouch selected this popular gloss. The gloss nourishes lips and has the high shine you want in a gloss, plus a pretty dose of shimmer.
5. Dazzleglass in Girl’s Delight, MAC Cosmetics
If you want something that works for day and night, check out makeup artist Jose Corella’s pick. He says, “It has a great shine, but it’s not sticky. Also, it is great for daytime when worn alone, but it’s equally as great when worn over lipstick at night.”
6. Lip Gloss, Pre-Dame
Makeup artist Birchbox Brand Ambassador and vlogger Tati Westbrook selected this gloss. She states, “It’s affordable, creamy in texture, and the colors are just so incredibly flattering.”
7. Lip Gloss in Orgasm, NARS
It’s no surprise that this lip gloss made it onto the list. It got makeup artist Jade Marie’s seal of approval. She explains, “This color is always my go-to for clients who are more on the natural side.” Pick up the blush while you’re getting the gloss.
8. Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Laquer, Marc Jacobs
Kardashian makeup artist Rob Scheppy picked this high-shine gloss. He explains, “[It’s the] perfect summer gloss for any skin tone. It really complements your bronzy dewy skin.” It may not be summer anymore, but you can wear it to boost your tan.
