Finally, a way to end global lip gloss loss.
There are certain undeniable truths of life: What goes up must come down; anything that can go wrong will go wrong. And, of course, you’ll lose the majority of your lip glosses.

Blame it on overstuffed purses or general negligence, but odds are that you’ve misplaced your lip shine more times than you’ve made it through an entire tube. But if the gloss were a bit bigger, a bit shinier, or a bit more wearable, would you be less likely to lose it?
Brands like Urban Decay are banking on it—they’re ringing in the holiday quite literally with a slew of new lip gloss rings.
Juicy Couture’s heart-shaped pave ring includes a pot of light pink gloss and a built-in mirror. If pink rhinestones aren’t your thing, Urban Decay’s giant peridot green “stone” ring is a bit tougher—and it comes with three interchangeable colors. It's worth mentioning that you’ll be paying for not just the gloss, but the piece of jewelry it comes with; the cash-strapped may want to consider Jaqua's dessert-flavored rings, which come in at just $8 each.
Of course, we’ve also lost our fair share of rings, so maybe no gloss is safe from a life spent missing in action.
