Gloss, glass, glacé. We seriously don't even care what you call a lip gloss, we just want 'em all. Whether we're looking for a hint of color or just a big boost of shine, there's a perfect treat for our lips right at Sephora — and we've looked into their bestsellers to prove it.
From lip glosses packed with plumpers to those with hydrating oils and butters, there's a lip gloss on this list that can make anyone smile — and then love that smile even more. And, yes, there are options with enough pigmentation to even make the most committed lipstick-lovers' eyes wander.
Now go on and get smooth, soft lips (with or without a dazzle of shimmer) in this shiny, new list of the bestselling lip glosses at Sephora ahead.
Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Polish Gloss
With more than 12,000 reviews, 388,000 loves, and a 4.6-star average rating from Sephora shoppers, there's so much to say before even mentioning the 40+ colors of the Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Polish Gloss ($21). If you've tried it, you'll likely recall the tingle that means lips are getting plumped after it's swept on.
However, if you like the tingle but don't love the shimmer, there's also the Full-On Plumping Lip Cream Gloss ($21) — with over 2,000 five-star reviews for a creamy formulation.
Patrick Ta Major Glow Lip Shine
It's the texture of this Patrick Ta Major Glow Lip Shine ($22) that really stands out — it's like a gel-oil hybrid that easily glides on and stays put. Sephora reviewers also love the glassy shine (of the three colors) . . . and that it's not sticky either.
Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss
Clinique's Black Honey lip color has been around since 1971 — and, if you're not sure about the iconic raisin-like color in a lipstick, it's also offered in this buildable Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss ($19). This antioxidant-rich version has more than 1,100 five-star reviews on Sephora's site, so people love this formula, too.
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
No list on gloss could be complete with out this Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer ($19). With close to 10,000 reviews and well over 500,000 hearts from other Sephora shoppers, you'd be in good company when picking up one of the original colors, or a newer hues like the brown Hot Chocolit and the clear Glass Slipper.
Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss
There are more than 115,000 loves for this bestselling Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss ($34), which comes in both shine and shimmer finishes. The spheres of hyaluronic acid expand when hitting moist lips, resulting in a volumizing effect that's also hydrating.
Pat McGrath Labs LUST: Lip Gloss
The pigmented gel Pat McGrath Labs LUST: Lip Gloss ($30) is a bestselling option that's earned a 4.6-star rating and more than 143,000 loves from other Sephora shoppers. While there are 25 shiny, shimmer, and glittery choices for this version, there are also three new, limited-edition OpuLUST Lip Gloss ($30) colors, all offering a uberglittery metallic sparkle.
Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss
Whether you choose a shimmer, high shine, or metallic shade of this bestselling Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss ($30), each offers plumping hydration with hyaluronic acid. All 18 colors also include shea butter and avocado oil for maximum softness, too.
Kopari Coconut Lip Glossy
There's 100 percent organic coconut oil in the bestselling Kopari Coconut Lip Glossy ($13) — and no petroleum, silicone, or synthetic fragrances. The antibacterial coconut oil sinks into lips to protect them and offers a bonus flavor at the same time. Now that's a win-win.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss
There are more than 1,000 five-star reviews for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss ($16), which comes in 20+ metallic, shimmery, and pure shine options. Several shades can be built up for a highly pigmented effect, or just brushed on with one coat for a subtle glassy finish instead.
Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss
There's a blend of nourishing botanical oils (like coffee seed and kuikui nut) in the Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss ($27) that give it incredible sheen. Those ingredients — alongside hyaluronic acid and vitamins C and E — also offer hydration for each of the ultrashiny shades.
Tower 28 Beauty ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss
The juicy Tower 28 Beauty ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss ($14) gets its sheen from the five oils inside, including rose hip, apricot, and raspberry. Reviewers praise the six sheer colors for being nourishing and nonsticky — and 93 percent of them would recommend this jelly gloss to others, too.
Melt Cosmetics Crushed Glitter Lip Gloss
Yes, there are actually tiny bits of glitter inside the Melt Cosmetics Crushed Glitter Lip Gloss ($16). This gives all three colors added dimension but (according to several Sephora reviewers) no gritty feel at the same time.
Bareminerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lipgloss
The high-shine Bareminerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lipgloss ($19) come in a range of "nude" shades that complement various skin tones, with shea, avocado, murumuru, and cupuacu butters inside for added moisture. Each of the 10 glosses have natural lip-plumping peptides to makes lips look fuller while locking in that hydration at the same time.
Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss
Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss ($27) isn't just a gloss, it's a protective, plumping treatment, too. You'll be wearing a moisturizer that happens to come with bonus color inside: lips get a touch of color while evening primrose oil, hyaluronic acid, and peptides keep them smooth, supple, and hydrated.
Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel
There are more than 3,000 reviews for the Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($12), which comes in 20+ colors. Some shades are more saturated when built up and leave a sheer lipstick-like look, while others are just meant for a subtle, light-reflective shimmer alone or as a topper.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss
The mint-scented Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss ($29) comes in more than 30 shades and is supposed to shine like you're wearing 30 coats of lacquer. Whether you opt for a shimmery shade or a brighter hue, lips will look glassy but won't be sticky . . . and you don't need to actually apply 30 coats to get that effect.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Lip Gloss
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Lip Gloss ($22) is a lasting gloss with tons of shine. It's also rich in antioxidants — like the lotus flower extract that protects and soothes your lips on the inside, while they look great on the outside, too.
Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper
The bestselling Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper ($15-$29) leaves a tingle to let you know it's working on your lips. There's the original clear option (in regular and mini sizes), and pink, red, or apricot shades to add a hint of color to the conditioning volume boost.
Tom Ford Gloss Luxe Lip Gloss
There are both oils (jojoba, avocado, and olive) and silica powders (formulated for beauty products, specifically) in the Tom Ford Gloss Luxe Lip Gloss ($55). These ingredients give the popular gloss a satiny finish and help it last with cushiony comfort, too.
Armani Beauty Ecstasy Lacquer Lip Gloss
The bestselling Armani Beauty Ecstasy Lacquer Lip Gloss ($38) looks like a lipstick but feels like a balm, thanks to the softening and moisturizing glycerin inside. There are 16 high-shine colors to choose from, all just as hydrating for your mouth.
