If you haven’t finished with your fascination with lip glosses (remember the cherry lip glosses they sold at the rinks?) but you can dispense with formulas that leave your hair—and fingertips, a tissue, and traversing dust particles…should I continue? Hold on to your lips, we got you covered.
The adult versions of our middle school lip gloss favorites are hydrating, full of glossy, and barely feel 100 percent stick-free. And because there’s always been more when it comes to a lip gloss collection, we’ve rounded up the best non-sticky lip glosses to put in your bag for every occasion – from running errands to watching a movie.

Tower28 Beauty ShineOn Lip Jelly – $14.00
If we had to pick just one lip gloss to wear forever, it would probably be Tower28 ShineOn Lip Jelly. You get all the shine you love without the stickiness. While the classic sheer gloss is a must, we also recommend trying pigmented shades like Fire and Spicy for a pop of color.
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer – $19.00
Rihanna—a royal in the early 2000s—knew exactly what she was doing when she created this lip gloss. Unlike the shine you had when you were 12, Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer will give you the ultimate shine while conditioning and hydrating.
Ilia Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil – $26.00
There’s a lot to love about this Ilia lip oil, but our favorite is the fact that there’s nothing on your lips. Ilia is known for incorporating skincare heroes into her makeup products, and highlights here include hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate your lips, salicornia herb extract for “soft-looking lips” and meadowfoam seed oil to lock in moisture.
