It’s understandable to love a lip gloss for its ease of application, however not all glosses are created alike. I’ve had my fair share of them that have been overly sticky and gooey, eventually becoming too tacky to move from the wand to the lips. Where’s the fun in that? Texture is certainly important to making sure you aren’t constantly on edge, waiting to prevent a “hair stuck to lips” moment, and once you’ve found a gloss that looks and feels great, you’ll lower your guard against these kind of mishaps.
I recently tried the Mehron Glosstone Pro line, a well-edited array of colors (five color options and one clear shade; $11.95 each) that is probably the least tacky lip gloss I’ve ever tried, is super smooth, and non-drying, thanks to ingredients such as aloe vera and Vitamin E. My favorite shade is Coral Reef, with just enough color to enhance my lip hue, without looking overly glossed.
If you’re more of a matte lip gal, Mehron has a well-pigmented L.I.P. Cream ($7.95 each), which pairs nicely with its new array of L.I.P. Liner Pencil shades (Darling, Brick, Sweet, and Hope; $8.95 each). Mehron, with a history as a theatrical makeup brand spanning eight decades, has been used on the sets of films such as Black Swan and in productions of The Lion King and Cirque de Soliel, as well as on celebrities such as Pink and Hilary Duff.
