SMASHBOX O-GLOSS

This goes on clear and then deepens into a gorgeous, your-lips-but-better shade—it looks different on everyone, as it works with your skin's chemistry to create the color.


CLARK'S BOTANICALS ULTRA RICH LIP TINT IN ALEXANDRA ROSE

This has to be the glossiest—and the punchy shade is so pretty. The formula is completely natural, packed with things like shea butter and vanilla extract.


KORRES LIP BUTTER IN POMEGRANATE

This just smells like summer. It's all-natural, and the translucent hot-pink brightens up every skin tone. The ultimate instant revivifier/pick-me-up.


YVES SAINT LAURENT GLOSS VOLUPTE SHEER SENSUAL GLOSS STICK IN FROZEN CHERRY

Every beauty editor I know has at least one of these in her bag: Slim and chic and so wildly flattering. The shine is perfect, yet never catches in your hair. You can pretty much wear any of the colors, as they're all very sheer. Best of all, they smell like sweet iced tea.


BURT'S BEES REPLENISHING LIP BALM WITH POMEGRANATE OIL

This is for the ultimate no-color-color person—it feels incredible, it smells fantastic, and you get great shine and the hintiest of tints.


YES TO CARROTS C ME BLUSH LIP TINT IN CORAL SHINE

So pure that it's USDA (as in food) approved (nice, as of course, any lip product you use, you do sort of end up consuming) —plus the shine and the peachy shade are so sexy.


FRESH SUGAR ROSÉ TINTED LIP TREATMENT

The mattest of the glosses, this is subtle in both color and texture, smells like lemon and brown sugar, and feels as rich as a balm going on.


REVLON JUST BITTEN LIP STAIN + BALM IN FLAME

Such a brilliant idea: The gorgeous stain lasts practically all day, and the super-shiny gloss seals in the color—apply it as often as you like.


NARS PURE SHEER LIP TREATMENT IN ANGELIQUE

Sort of a cross between lipstick and balm, this is super light and wonderfully moisturizing, yet somehow the subtle color stays on for hours.


TARTE NATURAL LIP STAIN IN MOODY

Just like the company's incredible cheek stain, this gel pencil is practically foolproof: Layer it on for sheer but buildable color.
