Lip gloss -- it's a staple in everyone's makeup bag (right?!), so the TotalBeauty.com editorial team is obsessed with finding the very best. We've tried a ton -- some even call us lip gloss whores -- and narrowed down the best for you. If you disagree though, please chime in. We'd love to know about your go-to glosses.

Why it's great: "My latest obsession is this bad boy -- Lip Rewind by Miracle Skin Transformer. Technically there's not "gloss" in the name, but it is one -- with major benefits, including peptides (to boost collagen and reduce lip wrinkles) and broad spectrum SPF 20. The tip is a sponge applicator, and you twist a few clicks till a dollop of lightly colored gloss pops out. It comes in five shades (I like Pink), has a nice long lasting, non-sticky formula, and leaves a natural shine. It's a great subtle partner to a smoky eye." --Beth, Editor-in-Chief

NARS Lip Gloss, $25
Editor Rating: 9.0

Why it's great: "This NARS lip gloss is great because it's super easy to apply and comes in an endless array of colors. I even love using the clear gloss on top of a matte lipstick. The formula is moisturizing, non-sticky, and lasts a good long time, even after drinking and eating. Plus, the gloss comes in a nice portable tube, making mid-day touch-ups moi fácil." -- Amanda, Editorial Intern

Why it's great: "Lip gloss is very iffy for me. Although I enjoy the gloss it gives my lips, I always have to use it in conjunction with something else (lip balm, color, etc. lip liner) until I came across Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lip gloss. I feel like I don't need Chapstick because it's creamy, and has a hydrating minty feel that also plumps my lips. I love that the sheen is light and has a subtle color to it, which makes it perfect for the daytime. It's also great for creating a frosty look when layered over your favorite shade of lipstick. Plus, I love the minimalist, cute packaging -- people are always asking, "What is that?" when I pull it out to reapply." -- Tiffanie, Assistant Editor

Why it's great: "I wasn't familiar with this brand, but I tried the lip gloss on a whim and now I'm hooked. It has a fruity scent that reminds me of my old school Lip Smackers, but it's not overbearing and has ingredients like aloe vera and vitamin E to make it super hydrating. It's a little sticky, but not enough to be annoying -- just enough so it stays on your lips. What's great is that even after it wears off (since no lip gloss last forever, although this one holds up for a couple hours) your lips feel soft and moisturized. The best part -- at least for me -- is that this gloss is super shiny but in no way glittery. This makes it ideal for anyone that wants a glossy look but doesn't want to delve into tween-like shimmer. I had just about given up on lip gloss altogether but now I'm topping my lipstick with this most days for a dewy sheen that's just so pretty." -- Sarah, Senior Editor
