Question of the Day: what do you like using – lipstick or lip gloss?

Today I want to ask you a very interesting question that will definitely divide us into at least two groups – lipstick- or lip gloss-lovers. And that is truly amazing that we have an opportunity to choose what type of product to use to make our lips completely irresistible!

If you asked me this question I wouldn’t know what to say. I love lip gloss when my lips are more on a drier side and I can’t resist having my lipstick on when I go for a more matte look. To my mind, these two product are intended for the same purpose but can deliver different effects and results.

I love lip glosses for several reasons: lip gloss nourishes the lips and protects them very effectively from the aggressive environment; lip gloss has a gorgeous gloss and may have amazing shimmer and looks very alluring on the lips; lip gloss is a great alternative to brighter lipsticks because you can have a bright lip gloss with sheer color pay-off but it still remains bright but not that into face.

But lipsticks are awesome too! Some lipsticks may have the SPF protection that is very useful nowadays. Lipsticks are the best in terms of finishes you can get from mattes up to glosses. And lipsticks can be either sheer or fully opaque – and there you have a lot of control over the way your lips look. And color range is definitely bigger in the lipsticks’ department.

I think I reach for either lipstick or lip gloss equally often and I do have my absolute favorites among both lipsticks and lip glosses. It depends more on how I feel about my lips at the certain moment of time and what makeup effect or look I’m going for.

What do you use more often? Is there any specific feature lipstick or a lipgloss have that makes you choose either one of them?

Please share your answers and thoughtsΒ in the comments down below.

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

Dorothea

  1. I prefer lipsticks as they make more of a statement, I find lip glosses too thick and messy – perhaps I just not found the perfect formula.

    1. There are some lip glosses with weightless textures and that are not sticky at all – Revlon or Urban Decay have amazing formulas, for example! And lipsticks allow us to have the most gorgeous colors on our lips!
