A great opaque lip gloss is sometimes hard to come by, which is why when we find one to our liking, we hold it close and never let it go. Ahead, we rounded up six of our absolute favorite colored, opaque lip glosses with major saturation, pigmentation and pow included.
Perhaps the most O.G. of the bunch, the Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquer will always be a staple in our colored-gloss-loving hearts. The payoff of this gloss is super vivid to the eye, and it goes on seamlessly for a hydrating high-shine finish.
Another one of our go-tos, the Intense Butter Gloss by NYX is a crowd favorite when it comes to bursting color. This baby comes in 24 shades and fits just about every lip lover’s desires with soft neutrals, powerful purples and bright reds.
The Wet Cherry Glosses by Lime Crime take the cake when it comes to an opaque colored finish with extra glitz and glam. They range in a myriad of red, purple, burgundy and orange shades, and pack a major punch with just one application.
For a luxe glossy finish, look no further than the YSL Glossy Stain. The pigmentation of this stuff is iconic, and it will become one of your favorites to apply before a special occasion or fancy event. Plus, its longwearing pigment stains your lips for hours to come.
This opaque lippie is one of our favs — simply because it feels really hydrating and moisturizing on the mouth sans the sticky-feeling. The pigmentation of Reign & Shine is also spot-on, as it fills your lips with color with literally one swipe.
Last but certainly not least is the Slip Tease Lip Lacquers by NYX, a pretty neutral rainbow of the most opaque glosses we’ve ever laid our eyes on. These are perfect for achieving the ultimate slicked lip look without any sheerness in sight.
