5 Lips Glosses You Need That Provide Shine & Hydration

Sing it with us... "My lip gloss is poppin', my lip gloss is cool." Glossy lips used to be all the rage. I remember when Augusta and I searched and searched for the perfect ultra shiny gloss that was called "Cinderella Slipper." We found it and let's just say our school hallways were not ready for all the shine! ;) And now that wonderful shiny makeup trend is back and has been for a while!
For the days when you just want to add a little shine to your pout to highlight your natural lip color, you need the perfect gloss. Sometimes lip glosses can leave your lips feeling not moisturized at all after wearing product on them all day. We always will put a little Burt's Bees (our favorite lip balm) on before we put on a gloss or lipstick that is drying. It is our mission to find lip glosses that will actually hydrate your lips.
A hydrating gloss would be like your favorite gloss being a chap stick! How ideal would that be? Especially with fall around the corner, the goal is to not have chapped lips all season long.
