    L’Oreal Infallible-long lasting, and a decent selection of colors, and an awesome applicator. A close second is Korres Cherry Lip Gloss-limited color range, but they feel nice, and are moisturizing.

    Mac creme sheen is my favorite! Smells so good and it glides on and is smooth!

    I think ‘long wearing’ usually = sticky. My fav non-sticky lip glosses are from NYX. I also really love Fresh – Sugar lip glosses. Today I’m wearing ‘desire’ (purple) over Rimmel’s Vinitage pink (which is really a mauve to me).

       @mpca66 I totally agree! I’m not a lipgloss wearer cause I hate the sticky, gloopy feeling, but the NYX ones are great! And for the price, you can’t beat it if you don’t wear it a lot.

    A couple of the only lipglosses I’m continuing to tolerate are Tarte Maracuja Gloss and Bobbi Brown Rich Color Gloss.

    I really like the Buxom gloss line and Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie glosses.  The tingle is wonderful, and it reminds me not to lick my lips or rub them together too much (I’ve got a bad habit of doing that whenever I’m wearing lip products).  I’ve become a big fan or Laura Mercier glosses recently, too.  They’re smooth, non-sticky/non-goopy, have good color pay-off, and seem to last for a decent amount of time.  
    I know Bobbi Brown’s glosses have a lot of fans, and I admit they feel great, but on my lips they only last about 10 minutes before I have to reapply.

    Morgana Cryptoria. Long-lasting, buildable, great colors.

  7. Rachel

    Mac cremesheen glasses. They are so smooth and feel really nice, and they smell like cookies!  Fashion Scoop is my favorite. (:

  8. I love Laura Mercier’s Lip Glaces

  9. JEN

    I have a sample of “Dandelion” and LOVE IT!!  It’s not stick at all and gives your lips that kissable pout, great for the summertime!

  10. beachgal

    Any of Tart’s Lipsurgance’s

  11. KristinaC

    Dior! hands down

  12. Armani Gloss d’Armani! Non-sticky yet long-lasting. Best of both worlds!

  13. LissaOliva

    MAC’s Cremesheen are not sticky

    I don’t know why there isn’t more hype on Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15. It’s the most comfortable non-sticky and hydrating gloss I’ve tried out in a while. I suppose it could be the non-neutral scent it has that dissipates though. But ignoring the smell it’s a rather excellent product.

      @army_wife_in_alaska I don’t know how the “regular” glosswear compares, but if they are similar, I wasn’t impressed at all. I got a sample of the glosswear in a GWP that my mom gave me, and it had no more shine than if I used petroleum jelly on my lips. True, it felt nice, but honestly, it was nothing special. If it at least had SPF, it may be worth it to keep, but there are less expensive things on the market that will give the same effect.

         @xamyx  @army_wife_in_alaska Well obviously the one you are talking about is different from what I’m talking about, since you probably got that a long time ago. I like how Clinique glosswear wears and I think it’s an excellent product. You should try talking about something you’ve actually tried before shooting it down. #justsayin’

    My fave is Chanel Glossimer (yes, even more than Bobbi Brown high shimmer *g*). Having said that, the Bobbi Brown is really nice, and I just bought a Burberry lip gloss today and love it. But my fave is still the Glossimer. It’s just so comfortable on the lips.

    I don’t wear lipgloss on a regular basis, it’s too high maintenance.  That said, I don’t like wasting money on high end glosses- I don’t use them enough and they just go back. I find that Revlon Color Burst lipglosses are great non-sticky, and they’re cheap enough that I don’t mind buying them, using them a handful of times and chucking them :)

    My favorite non-sticky lipglosses as proven by how many I’ve purchased are Lip Junkie glosses from Urban Decay, and the regular lipglosses from NARS. They just feel great, last long, and do not have offensive odors.

  18. Adelita

    Because of your rave, now I’m in love with Clé de Peau lipgloss!
    But, because of its hefty price tag, I vote for Benefit Ultra Shines Lip Shine for the department store-brand league and Essence Stay With Me Long-Lasting Lipgloss for drugstore-brand lipgloss.

  19. Madison

    its a tie between the NARS lip glosses (the regular ones not the larger than life ones) and the Dior Addict lip glosses

  20. Well, for L’Oréal Paris Infallible is the best non sticky. It is actually the favorite of Allure Magazine..

  21. ZulaikhaMuddassir

    Ysl pur gloss n golden gloss are great! Bourjois has great non sticky glosses too.

  22. Ashley Sarah

    I really love how non-sticky NYX glosses are. I have bought one MAC gloss and was overwhelmed by how sticky it was.

  23. Nars regular gloss, Chanel Glossimers, and Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer gloss

  24. TMBJessxox

    Mac is overly sticky and thick. Rimmel vinyl glosses are the way to go for me, or jordana sheer lipglosses.

  25. BurberryBurial

    I love bare minerals cupcake lipgloss!

  26. Liz

    Hands down, MAC Cremesheen Glasses.  I put them on at work after lunch, and it feels like I’m having dessert.

  27. diamond_8806

    I like NYX Mega Shine lip glosses and Revlon’s Super Lustrous lip glosses!
