i love lipstick! what are my favorite makeup lovers favorite brands and shades of lipstick? do you feel lipgloss has the same effect as lipstick, or is there a time and place for one or the other? i tend to think of lipstick as more "dressy", particularly red lipstick! what do you think makeupers?

Estee Lauder for my lipstick brand its same for my lip glosses.During dry weather I used lip gloss over lipstick to moisturize my lips.A glossy pink will be my color to both. Another choice would be clinique I love using their lipstick too no perfume added just natural unlike other brand. I love lip gloss and lipstick both! Have a nice day!

I started using lipstick when I started on my job and had several shades to match the clothes I wore but as years progressed I am now stuck with one shade and that is red. I use it even while I am at home as it keeps my lips moist. No. I do not use lip gloss. I have this bad habit however, of licking my lips which takes away what I put on. Disgusting I say!

Have you tried the lip balm or the chap stick type of balm? Maybe Bert's Bees lip balm? So that you don't have to lick the lips and have the dry lips like the mummy in the desert?

i agree allknowing, that red is classic and always right. like you, i now have to have something on my lips...i did use burts bees as page turner suggested, but my husband was not keen on the taste when he kissed me, he said it was too bee waxy, so for casual home moments or days i use korres lip butter, it is tinted and has a nice flavor and smell! but i think red lipstick is very dressed up and there are many nice shades and brands to play with !

@Page Turner - It is my habit that takes its toll. My lips are not that dry 'like the mummy in the desert' but putting on lipstick does make a difference. @psychoartist - I am kind of dressed up even at home as sometimes there could be visitors or I may have to suddenly need to go out for something. Wearing lipstick is a part of dressing I guess.

I'm a lipstick,lip gloss and lip balm addict.I can't go out without it I feel naked. At home I only use tinted lip balm like Burt's Bees. I like the minty flavor of it and love the fruity smell too. For lipstick my favorite brands are anna sui, maybelline and chanel. Because I like how the moisturisers last longer on my lips. Colors I like more often on regular days are light colors baby pink,I guess..lol I apply lip gloss occasionally especially during winter to protect my lips from dying.

Sorry I'm not sure if it is Burt's Bees or Bert's Bees? Here in Japan it's written in Burt's Bees in the package.

soo curious about korres lip butter,saw it many times in youtube. unfortunately it's not available here in country. i'm not sure if your husband would love the anna sui. it has a strong smell of rose but it doesn't taste like that though.

I agree,lip stick is more for dress up and lip gloss is more for every day wear. I like my lipsticks and lip glosses to be as natural looking as possible. So when I do wear lip stick I will usually wear a color that is pretty close to my own lip color, so I tend to choose natural looking pinks. I have yet to have the guts to where a red.

I only use lip gloss. It seems like lipstick does not stay on me as long. By the way, I'm sorry I'm so late to this discussion. I was gone for a while on vacation.

Well, I do not love lipstick. But when I was young, I mean to say very young, during the age of 7 or 8, I used to try on all the lipsticks and other cosmetics as well just for fun. I enjoyed doing such things a lot ! Lol! But now, I don't like applying lipsticks. I feel they are quite really dark and won't look good for my age. I apply lip gloss every time. Because I find them to be quite light in color and smooth. I apply lipsticks of very light color but very rarely! All the time, I just use lip gloss! But I am sure that lipstick will definitely look good on girls above the age of 20s, but not teenagers or more young girls.

I was the same way as this. When I was very young, I liked playing with the lipsticks. My grandmother sold the cosmetics and she had small, sample the lipsticks and I would play with these, as well as other of the cosmetics. Now, I don't wear the lipsticks. They don't look right on me. In fact, I fear that I look rather garish and more than a bit pervy when I wear the lipsticks. But I do like the taste of some of the lipsticks!

i love lipstick too..i like shades that are neutral or shades that look natural or it's not obvious you're wearing a lipstick at all..sometimes i mixed colors of dark and light to make it neutral. i don't really like or use lipgloss that much...i like matte lipstick i don't really feel a lipstick that is shiny..

Oh yes, i like lisptick second to mascara as part of my make-up. Usually, when i am in a casual attire, i would put on a pale lipstick. But when i am dressed for a special occasion, i like putting on a red lipstick. It seems to add class to my whole look. Though, i don't like putting on lip gloss, because it tends to wipe away my lipstick easily.

I love lipstick too. It has such a powerful influence on your face. My favorite brands of lipstick are Maybelline, Fashion Fair, and Revlon. I think gloss is a little more understated than lipstick, but it still is effective for a nice look. Whether I use lipstick or lipgloss is determined by how I feel, and sometimes what I am wearing. I have a signature red that I absolutely can't live without.

I love lipstick too! I cant go out without lipstick feel likes I am naked when I dont wear red lipstick. I already tried different brand and colors of lipstick just to find the perfect match for me.I think lip gloss has a same effect as lipstick because they both add colors to our lips and make us beautifu. I also use chap stick to moistorized my lips especially during summer.

Lip gloss only adds gloss to your lips it is the lipstick that adds color so if you use lip gloss alone your lips will be just shiny or glossy but will not add any color in your lips so if your lips are pale they'd just become glossy pale lips. So it is better to apply lip gloss after apply lipstick to achieve a better effect.

Yes women do have options on how to look better. We have in the market all sort of make up we can choose from. Lipstick and lip gloss are one of them and I consider them women's best friend. We can always use them either individually or together to make our lips kissable.
