Just less than a year ago, it was all about the mattes. Bone-dry finishes that would make your lips the boldest part of your MOTD were a total must-have.

But before you pick your new favorite lip gloss, let us show you some of our favorite shades for every skin tone. These lip colors are all under $25 and come with Cash Back at Ebates so you can update your face game without breaking the bank.

Light skin tones look fabulous with a mauvey nude for day, sheer pink for the weekend, and dusty brick red for evening.

Don’t shy away from a little sparkle. Olive and warmer tones should give a glittery gold a whirl, go bold with an electric violet or spicy with an orange-toned red.
