Lip gloss is a cosmetic product used to add shine and a small amount of color to the lips. It may be in liquid form or an easy-to-apply solid. Glosses are typically shiny, but they can also have a glittery, opalescent, or metallic finish along with the shine. Typically, liquid forms of gloss provide a bit more shine than solids because they add a thicker layer of cosmetics to the lips. Due to the subdued colors, it is often one of the first makeup products young girls sample. Some glosses are even flavored, especially those catering to this younger clientele. However, women of all ages enjoy a good gloss.
