It's official; matte lips are over. The countless velvets and mattes currently taking up space in your beauty bag are no longer a necessity in your daily arsenal—the ‘done’ look is, basically, done.
One look at the SS’19 trends and the Insta feeds of Hayley Baldwin Bieber, Dua Lipa et al and it's all but certain that we're amidst a rebuttal of all things minimalist. From glitter eyes to fluro hair, perspex accessories to patent lips and lids, gloss is back, and in a big way.

She is widely regarded as the most influential makeup artist in the world and is revered for her highly coveted eponymous makeup line, but McGrath is unashamedly always pushing the boundaries.
This time, she’s releasing an exclusive collaboration with The Met (yes, that Met) for their 2018 Heavenly Bodies theme. Cue an edited line of lustrous shadows alongside two dazzling lip glosses. Lust: Gloss Angelique and Blitz Gold are set to drop early December—and you will regret not refreshing your window countless times for this beauty.
Notorious for her eponymous label’s velvet and matte finishes, Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics dropped the limited-edition High Gloss lip line only two weeks ago and (totally unsurprisingly) sold out in hours.
