Twenty years ago, we gave our right arms for sticky lip glosses that could put the blinding sun to shame. Fast forward to 2019, and lip glosses are still in vogue. Thankfully, the formulas have evolved, and how — we have the glitz, the plumpness, the softness and the scrumptiousness — without the gluey, gloppy mess of days past. Whether you're looking for a subtle sheen, or want to go all out with dazzling shimmer, we've reviewed the best lip glosses in India to help you get ready. Ahead, 10 lip-smacking lip glosses to add to your beauty arsenal now. Glossing over this list is not advised.

This classic Lakme Plum and Shine Vanilla lip gloss will take you back to the 90s with its nostalgic packaging – it comes in a clear tube with a slant applicator, just like old times.

Best Lip Glosses in India - Lakme Absolute Plump Shine Lip Gloss
If you're bored of matte lipsticks, try the Lakme Plump and Shine Candy Shine lip gloss to plump your lips.
