I like to wear matte lipstick as it looks natural. I feel glossy lipsticks are too flashy. What about you, what do you like- matte or glossy? Which shades do you like to use? Do you also wear make up at home?

I don't really like wearing lipstick, except for special occasions. I usually just wear my lip gloss or lip balm. When I do wear them, I wear the matte for the malls, family gathering or some things like that. For going out at nights, like clubbing I like to add shine on top of the matte. Happy mylotting and have a nice day!!

Definitely matte for me. I like to wear gloss over my lipstick, so using glossy lipstick will take away the fun in that. I also don't like the sparkling/glittery kind of lipstick. It makes me look like a disco ball. The shades I choose are usually in the light pink to light brown shades. I've never tried bright red as well as orange hues. And to answer your question, I don't wear makeup at home.

It depends. I like both. you know, it all depends on the clothes and style you are dressing up. for a party or go to some places with lights, indoor activity, better look bright. when working, the former.

Hi karjyo, I love both! I love pink and light maroon and light red! But, I am only applying when I am out or when I was working..Not inside the house!

I like both sorts of lipsticks, I do like the flashy sorts of lipstick a bit more than matte though. But this is because I have a bit of a thing for sparkly or things that flash in the sun and that! I like shades of pink, I do not wear make up at home I only wear it if I go out of the house for any reason.

Hi, I prefer matte lipsticks, especially during working hours. During the evenings or when I go for functions and parties, I would go for glossy lipsticks. My preferred colours are shades of brown for daytime, and for evenings, I'd use dark rose, or redder shades. I don't wear make-up at home, as it's better for the skin to 'breathe'!

I prefer matte lipstick than glossy, but sometimes when I need to feel a little glam, I wear lip gloss. :) My favourite shades for matte lipstick would be earth tones or something pinkish. As for glossy lipstick, I like pink tones too. I don't wear makeup at home.

I use both depends in my mood..but i use glossy most of the time..the glossiness of the lipstick can be reduced when you put a loose powder over the lipstick and it lasts more longer when putted by a powder.

I really don't wear lipstick much anymore. but when I did i wore glossy lipstick matte always looked bad on me and felt too dry on my lips.

I don't normally wear make-up, only when I go out and then I'll choose glossy one. If I would wear lipstick during the day, to go to work or something, I would choose matte. It all depends on what you are trying to achieve with your make-up. have a nice day

I prefer matte lipstick. my favourite is a really rich, vibrant, blue based red. by Mac, called Russian Red. it's my signature lippie, and I love it. it has a real vintage glamour,that I don't think gloss lipsticks have.
