Lip gloss may seem like a throwback to your high school or middle school years, but like tiny sunglasses and fanny packs, lip gloss is back in a big way. And the latest high-shine, non-sticky formulas are perfect for brides.
In addition to their luster, glosses are moisturizing, flattering, and lightweight—making them just the product to have stashed in your makeup bag for your summer wedding or bachelorette party. And regardless of your personal bridal style, there's a gloss to suit every bride's beauty look. There are shimmery and sheer formulas—perfect for layering over your favorite lipstick—and pigmented, opaque formulas for brides who want to skip the lipstick, but still want a rich color. You could also rock a barely-there gloss all on its own. After all, what better way to top off a glowing, natural wedding-day look than with a bit of extra shine?
Below, we've rounded up our favorite non-sticky, ultra-glossy formulas at every price point—including some picks that clock in at under $5! Keep scrolling to see our favorite lip glosses for brides.
