Your Lip Gloss Game's Getting An Upgrade

There's something about the shift from summer's end to the start of fall that makes us want to update our wardrobes, sharpen our pencils, and debut a fresh new beauty look. Although we're not in school anymore, that stretch from mid August 'til the first week of September will forever feel like "back to school time." In fact, we're so excited about B.T.S. shopping that we're already planning our beauty-product arsenal — starting with our lippies.

Opaque lipsticks and pigmented stains have been de rigueur for a few seasons now, but glosses have been creeping back on our radars lately. Before you grimace with anticipation of overly shiny and unbearably sticky mouths, know that the entire gloss game has done a 180. New and improved formulas, like Maybelline's Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Gloss, combine just a hint of shine with a flattering wash of color, so you end up with lips that look like yours but better. (And no stray strands of hair stuck in them when a breeze comes along.) Plus, these glosses in particular are super hydrating, just like our favorite OG, Baby Lips balm. Consider them your perfect in-between option for when you're not trying to make a major statement but still want to stand out.

Head over to Maybelline for plenty of beauty inspo to pair with your polished lips this fall. You'll feel that rush of first-day anticipation all over again.
