I am a long time fan of lip gloss. I enjoy the shine and texture of it. I love the way it feels on my lips. I have tried many brands and formulas over the years. This article will discuss my current favorite lip glosses and why I choose the ones that I did.
Ruby Kisses Jellicious Lip Gloss
I found this lip gloss in a local beauty store for $2.50 a tube. The store had twelve different scents to choose from. I purchased Cotton Candy and Carmel Frappuccino scents. I was amazed by how moisturizing and comfortable this lip gloss is. It left my lips feeling soft and it also smelled and tasted amazing. The gloss was long wearing and lasted much longer than most glosses do on my lips. The formula was thicker and had a decent color payoff. It also wasn't sticky and didn't bleed outside the lines of my lips. Because I loved the two shades I purchased I did some searching online for this product. I found a seller on Ebay that sells this same lip gloss for $1.80 (if you use their buy 4 deal) and I ordered eight more of these lippies. I was shocked by how good this inexpensive lip gloss is. It literally blew me away by it's great quality. This is currently my favorite lip gloss. Crushed Strawberries, Java Guava, and Cherry Pick are some of my favorites. Though I will say I have enjoyed all of them that I have tried. This lip gloss comes in a squeeze tube with a plastic applicator.
Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss $20
This lipgloss is pricey. It costs $20. I will say that I am in love with this and do not regret spending that much on it. The lip gloss has a vanilla mint scent to it and it makes your lips feel tingly when it's on. I like the packaging with the see through window so you can see the color of the product and also how much is left. The applicator wand is soft and gets the right amount of product out to be able to do your entire mouth without dipping into it again. I use this often and would consider purchasing it in other shades since the formula is so good. I have this in the shade Snapped which is a holographic deep plum w/ blue shimmer shade. It's sparkly and pretty on. It looks great alone or over lipsticks.
MAC Lipglass $17.50
This lip gloss is amazing. It comes in a variety of colors and looks great alone or over lipstick. I like that it is buildable and has a decent amount of color payoff. This is one of the best lip glosses out there and has been a favorite of mine for years. It comes in a variety of shades and feels moisturizing on the lips. You can't go wrong with this one. Ruby Woo which is a vivid blue-red color is one of my favorites.
Buxom Full-On Lip Polish $21
This lipgloss comes in 100 different shades and each one is a women's name. I think its cool that there are so many different colors available in this lip gloss and also awesome that many people will be able to find their name. It makes the product feel more personal and I like that they did that. Many of the shades in this collection are similar. These glosses have a minty tingle when applied and make your lips look plumper. This lip gloss has a doe foot applicator and goes on smoothly. Some of my favorite shades are Jasmine, which is a black cherry and Dolly, which is a shimmering sultry mauve. These lip glosses have a shimmer to them. Buxom also has a version of this lip gloss without the shimmer.
