Open my purse at any given moment, and you'll probably find at least four lip glosses.

Today's best lip glosses are moisturizing, hyper-reflective, and never, ever sticky. I tapped a bevy of in-the-know beauty experts for their absolute favorite lip glosses of all time (plus, a few of my own mainstays).
