Lipstick is likely a staple in your makeup bag - but your everyday pinks, nudes and reds can sometimes get a little boring. While there's nothing wrong with rocking a neutral lip if you're headed to the office, there are probably times when you feel like wearing something more exciting. That's why our favorite brands are releasing what they're calling lip top coats. These products are designed to add a much-needed dose of razzle dazzle to your pout when you apply them on top of lipstick. Whether you want a crazy-glossy finish or insane sparkle, we've got a pick for you.
