A trend seen all over the Spring 2009 runways? Pale glossy lips. We're talking high-wattage shine in nudes and pale peaches that were gorgeously flattering on a variety of skin tones, from pale to dark and everything in between. (Just check out Chanel Iman at left, rocking the trend on the Marc Jacobs runway, to get the idea.) And since pale glossy lips are one of this beauty chick's favorite things to rock year-round, I consider it incredibly important to bring the trend your way! Check out tons of photos from the runways and the glosses you just shouldn't be without after the jump.
