While lip glosses might be a childhood favourite, growing up makes most of us steer clear of them. The sticky pout hardly ever makes it past lunch and our blowout is basically stuck to our lips within five minutes of stepping out of the house. Plus, they’re never as pigmented as you’d like them to be (besides, the liquid matte versions). We put to test three lip glosses (shimmer and pigmented variations) that claim to stay away from the tack, to ration if they really stand the test of fresh blowouts.

Faces Go Chic Lip Gloss, Rs 299
“While the Faces Go Chic lip gloss looked just like the Barbie pink, shimmery ones from what was my first makeup kit, this one was actually the perfect subtle pink gloss to wear in the day. You can even wear it over a matte lipstick to add some shine to your lips, if they start to feel too dry. As soon as you apply it, you’ll expect it to feel heavy and glossy, however, it settles down well unlike any other lip gloss I’ve tried. With gloss being so on-trend, it’s the perfect buy.” – Janine Dubash, editorial assistant

NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss, Rs 550
“I’ve been a fan of lip glosses since childhood but was always afraid of their stickiness, now that I need to have them on for longer. The NYX Butter Gloss had me pleasantly surprised—it’s not only non-sticky but also doesn’t transfer easily. The multiple colour options and medium coverage of this product makes it perfect to use every day. I applied it for 3-4 hours and it stayed in place the entire time. As a gloss lover, I’d give this tube my vote for sure. If you’re privy to chapped lips, give this ‘buttery’ formula a try.” – Yashna Chopra, digital writer

Innisfree Real Fluid Rouge, Rs 900
“While I love wearing lip gloss, I can’t deny the fact that I hate the tackiness that comes with most of them. Innisfree’s Real Fluid Rouge comes in vibrant shades and I tried a non-sticky coral. When I first swatched it, it felt very bright on my skin but on wearing the shade was much lighter on my lips making it quite wearable. The best thing I loved about this lip gloss is that it gives a high-shine to my lips making it look extremely plumped, without feeling sticky. On the downside, the texture was a little too heavy for me so I would recommend dabbing small quantities of it and spreading it out on your lips.” – Raveena Shahpuri, digital writer
