WORD OF MOUTH
opaque glosses mean a whole new way to give some lip.
Turns out, though, there's something to be said about these super-concentrated colors. Whereas sheer shimmer requires multiple coats for pink to peek through, it only takes one go for our favorite opaque glosses to get the full effect. Plus, with winter coming, a statement berry-hued pout seems totally appropriate.
Besides MAC, NYX, Sephora, and Shu Uemura all make tubes that have the moisture of your go-to gloss with the full coverage of lipstick. And while this means it takes some practice because you can apply it sans mirror on the go (unless you want to end up looking like Miss Geist from Clueless), that's ok. If you ask us, the lip-smacking end results are totally worth it.
