For the lipstick averse, lip gloss offers a hint of pigment without the commitment.
- Apply an SPF-loaded lip balm first to prevent sun damage from light-catching gloss.
- Sheer colors are easier to wear than opaque vinyl-finish colors, which can be tough to keep in place.
- Customize any lip gloss to your best shave by adding sheer lip balms such as Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream.
- To get the finish you're seeking, follow this rule of thumb: the stickier the formula, the higher the shine.
