Ever since Mom OK'd lip gloss in middle school, it's been one of my favorite beauty products. But as I've swapped pencil cases and backpacks for makeup bags and satchels, I've put supershiny glosses aside in favor of more mature, matte-finish lipsticks.
Some say that fluid formulas are making a comeback, and I think it's all thanks to the matte gloss hybrid. Each one glides on like a liquid, but it dries with a sophisticated satin finish. Plus, they're practically semi-permanent: they last through rounds of cocktails or even a steamy snogging session (read one editor's review of wearing this while making out with her boyfriend — seriously!).
