I love mac lipglass too, but my fav is by far, clinique lip treatment. not only is it a good treatment for your lips but it also has just the right amount of shine.

Amy F on

I have started using Mary-Kate and Ashley Juicy Shine Lip Gloss. I know it is marketed for a younger age group, but at the age of 38 it is truly the best lip gloss I have ever used!

Brittany B. (27) on

I LOVE Mary Kay’s Nourishine Lip Gloss in Coral Rose and Melon Sorbet. They are not sticky and keeps my lips soft!

Jenny A. on

My everyday staple is Rosebud Salve. I love how soft it makes my lips feel and the great smell. For going out, I am addicted to Lipfusion in Sweet. It gives my lips a nice full look.

Rebecca on

Pout plump in mulberry rocks!

Runner up: Plump my pucker in spike my punch

I LOVE Victoria Secret Lip Gloss. They have all different flavors that acutally taste good but look great!

kari on

I like Benefits “The Gloss” – also an everyday staple is Buxom Lips Lip Plumper – can’t live without it!!!

Janna M. on

I am obsessed with Rosebud Lip Salve. It smells amazing and it moisturizes without feeling greasy. I stock up on it whenever I go to Sephora.

Amy S. on

I am a makeup fanatic, so I have tons of different lip glosses. But the one I use every day is Lipfusion in Clear. I wear it alone, or dip the wand into a little loose powder blush to get a perfect match.

Alexandra G. on

I am in love with Vincent Longo’s lipglosses. They are so light and they smell fabulous!

rsgemini on

My all time favorite lipgloss is Oh Baby! by MAC.

emily on

my favorite lipgloss of the moment is smashbox lip enhancing gloss in pixel
its a nude…but also a very sheer and creamy nude that stays on forever and makes my lips super full and shiny

i also love everyone of victorias secret (beauty rush) lipglosses there are a ton and every flavor is so YUMMY!

Kendra on

mssoccerbunny on

Fusion Beauty’s LipFusion color shine (sold at Sephora). It’s pricey, but I love the feel!

Beth on

First, Jelly Gloss by Rimmel, it’s cheap, looks great and is not sticky.

Second would be MAC Lip Glass in Strawberry Lemonade.

Third would be Nars is Sunset Strip.

Sherri L on

My favorite is “Dreamy” by Neutrogena.

It stays on for a long time and moisturizes my lips completely. I get so many compliments about the color.

LOVE IT!!!!!

Gabi on

I love Revlon’s Pink After Glow and Pearl Plum. They are a natural shade of pink and plum to juice up your lips.

Adria D on

I absolutely love the Victoria Secret line of lip gloss, my favorite is Piece of Cake.

Sandy on

I absolutely love Avon’s ultra color rich lip gloss in Raspberry. I’ve tried all types and this one is the best hands down. No need to take the trip to a department store for the pricey lip glosses.

Maggie on

I swear by Philosophy Kiss Me lip balm. It’s not sticky or too strong tasting. I love it & have worn it for years.

Tenley G. on

I have tried every lip gloss in the book, but I always come back to Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss in Cherry Bomb. It’s long-lasting, moisturizing, and delicious!It makes for an excellent addiction.

Lola N. on

My favorite lip gloss is the Pop Beauty Ribbon gloss tin. It has 5 great colors that practically never wear off! I like the red/pink tin, because the colors range from a sheer sparkling pink, a vivid fuchsia, a shimmering nude/copper, a bright red, and my favorite, a sheer wine/berry tone!
-Lola N., age 36, from Cleveland, Ohio

laci on

aquafina rehydrating lip gloss

Emily on

C.O. Bigelow’s Mentha Lip Shine–it makes your lips super shiney, nice and soft, and its got peppermint oil in it so you can put it on your tongue to freshen your breath.

Amber on

I am a makeup junkie and have tons of lipglosses but my current fave is Clinique Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine gloss. It comes in super shiny shades and makes my lips feel moist and full. The best part is it doesnt burn or sting like other lip plumpers.

Deana on

I love MAC Lustreglass lipgloss in goes with everything and stays on well.

J on

Lancome Juicy Tubes can not be rivaled. Personal favourite is “Pamplemousse” but all the colours are great, the perfect amount of sheer tint and shine that is not remotley tacky. They aren’t that sticky and stay on for years,as well as lasting a lifetime. Perfect.

Lily on

Jessica Simpson dessert!

Marisa N on

Lip Fusion in Sweet is the perfect light pink gloss.

Brianna on

I really love M.A.C. lipgloss in Pinkarat, it’s like the perfect pink color with just a touch of shimmer. I wear it everyday because you can dress it up for like a nice dinner, or just wear it with jeans and a top when your out shopping with friends.

Erin C. on

E.L.F. (eyes lips face) Hypershine lip gloss is amazing! It’s super shiny without being sticky, and tastes great too!

Ann Marie on

I love Neutrogena “MoistureShine” gloss in “Glimmer”. It’s not sticky and doesn’t have a scent or flavor, which I like. Goes great over lipstick or on its own, it’s very versatile!

Lisa on

NARS BabyDoll lipgloss has been my addiction for the last five years or so, it’s perfect on its own or layered with another colour!

Chanel makes the best lip gloss by far! Not sticky like so many others & wears for hours! My fav is Chanel Glossimer in Blizzard – a fabulous frosty nude shade. Love it love it ;)

I love MAC lipglass. This is the only gloss I wear.




sarahh on

victoriassecret minty shine

Aimee on

Mary Kay Cream & Sugar or Coca Creme Lip Gloss

Kirsten on

Hands down, my two favorites are MAC LipGlass (the shine and colors are awesome, and they all smell terrific!) and Chanel Glossimer (a great soft gloss, without that ‘sticky’ feeling)

Lindsay L. on

MAC Lustreglass. It’s not as sticky as the Lipglass and has an awesome brush applicator. My fav color is Sinnamon!

Abby on

Dior!!! I have been using it for the past three years and I am addicted. Some of the colors smell horrible, but once they are on your lips it feels like its not there. They make a sparkly one and it smells really good, that and one other “flavor” are the only ones I have used and something with rose in the name. It lasts long and each tube costs like $20-40! I used one tube for like a year and a half. I only wore it like 2 times a week but still, thats a long time!

Lorena on


Krissy on

Good ‘ol Carmex – it provides a great shine! Gotta love it!

Renee on

I really am in love Max Factor’s new Lipgloss’s from their “Naughty/Nice” line! My favorite is “Spring Fling”. It’s a very sheer pink with a hint of sparkle and great to layer over other glosses too! The best part, VERY AFFORDABLE :)!!!!

Mac Lip Glass…I’ve been using it for you years and can’t switch!!!

Rennai P. on

Smashbox “Candid”. It’s smooth not sticky, the perfect color for all skin and hair colors and makes lips look bigger! Plus you don’t have to wait 30 minutes to get help at the counter like with MAC.

Kayla on

My favorite would be more of a balm than a gloss. It’s called “Wet Your Whistle” from Bath & Body Works. It’s sold out almost every time I go to buy a new tube. It has a great cucumber taste to it.

I am so over the washed out pale pout. Now, in the summery days, I don Chanel Glossimer in Sirop, a pinkish gloss. It compliments bronze-shadowed eyes and shines beautifully.

I never even heard of MARK. Find a avon rep or go online and order two!My second fav is lip fusion “Summer” very sheer cherry/pink color.They look very full and the color is amazing!However it is $28 but lasts forever.

Lynn on

I absolutely love Victoria’s Secret “beauty flash” lipgloss collection!! They come in tons of bright colors that all provide a radiance and sparkle to lips that is conveted by other brands! All my friends were hooked after seeing how long my lip gloss lasted, how good it tasted and how the colors perfectly match everything! Victoria Secret lipgloss is a must-have for every woman!

All I have to say is Stila.

My favorite lip gloss is SPICED APPLE RAPTURE at Bath and Body Works. It is a plumper lip gloss. Plus it smells good. Try some! Your lips will look fuller and they will smell good too.

C.O. Bigelow mentha tint lip gloss…it’s amazing! it isn’t sticky, and it freshens your breath.

i also like MAC lustreglass in love nectar. the perfect nude lip gloss with an amazing sheen.

Killie on

Dontno what its called but it makes your lips like dark purple butits still transparent.

Giselle on

there is nothing that compares to bonne belle 0- A SPLASH OF COLOR in strawberry..both me and my sister take it with us everywhere we go. it’s AMAZING really. i was searching for the BEST one for a while. This is it. it has great staying power and looks really natural. has a staining quality.but make sure its’s the best

Amanda on

I am a girl who always has ten lip glosses in my purse at any time, but the two I can’t live without are Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush in Lotta Colada and MK Signature Nourishine Lipgloss in Coral Rose (though I use Cream & Sugar in winter).
Both glosses leave my lips soft and supple and have lasting shine. They both have some shimmer that lasts even after the shine so even if I lose the shine by the end of a meal I still have a shimmery pout.

Giselle on

there is nothing that compares to bonne belle 0- A SPLASH OF COLOR in strawberry
