Hi all! I’m hoping to expand my horizons in the lipstick department, and I think a single listing of all our lipstick/lip gloss/lip stain experiences might be helpful to others as well. Please tell me if there’s a similar post that I couldn’t find!
I’ll go first! I’m a gloss girl mostly because I’m too lazy to fuss with accurate reapplication when I’m out and about. I do end up eating a lot of it, but I tend to get MLBB (my lips but better) colors, so they tend to fade pretty evenly on me. My favorites are NARS and NYX brand lipglosses. The NARS was not sticky at all and had a great MLBB color (I got Ophelia, a subtle pink), but it started smelling…rubbery and weird a few months in. NYX has great colors and quality (and has a yummy candy/fruit aroma), but they are a bit sticky. Much, much cheaper than NARS though haha! I’d honestly probably use a NYX gloss if I were to use a gloss at my wedding (even though quite a bit would end up on SO ha!). One con of super shiny glosses: they might photograph a little freakily.
Please share your experiences with your go-to lip products! Would they last through a wedding? Do they dry out your lips like no other? Would they photograph well? Please do list any pros or cons you may think of.
Thank you everyone!
