i am a golden god!
December 23 2013
Why? For one thing, it's so much more than that very '90s version we've been conditioned to think of when we hear "gold" and "lips" in the same sentence (ie Jessica Alba in Honey). There's also the surprise factor--yes, red is great but it's also a bit expected these days. And maybe most importantly, it does what makeup should do--that is, make you feel shiny, sparkly, and special--as good, if not better, as anything out there. (Related: There are lots of reasons you should feel shiny, sparkly, and special that go well beyond makeup. But then, you already knew that.)
The key isn't deciding you're going to give the gold lip a go--because hopefully you're game--but rather, figuring out which product works best for you. That's where we come in: Our editors tested 15 different tubes and came up with our ultimate list of picks. Flip through the gallery to see their favorites, along with a description of each. Then replay that "I am a golden god!" scene from Almost Famous, because you totally are.
