I’ve been stuck in this lipstick then lipgloss phase for the last month, but all before that I was a pure lipgloss girl, no extras needed. I start my day with lipliner(Vino or Chestnut) nude lipstick, and Bare Necessity dazzleglass. After that, I’ll probably only reapply the dazzleglass or use my spring bean lustreglass.

I’m good either way…depends on the look I want or how much makeup I feel like wearing that day ๐Ÿ™‚

I prefer lip gloss alone. I love wearing lipstick as well, but lately I’ve been hooked on my Dazzleglass in Money, Honey and Bare Necessity, and I won’t go anywhere without one or the other!

i perfer it alone just cause it is easier. now when it comes to a more polished look i will always wear it on top of lipstick.

mostly i just wear my lipstick matte

I used to prefer wearing them separately until Dazzle Glass came out. I love to experiment with gloss over color now!

I do both. When I’m affecting an overall look, it’s usually gloss over lipstick. If I’m not trying as hard, it’s just gloss.

My first time chiming in here…Love the site.

I was a gloss girl exclusively, but I love some of the new MAC lipsticks and am trying those. I prefer my gloss alone because I hate to contaminate it with lipstick…ya know?

How are you girls getting around this? I dont want lipstick in my dazzleglass. Know what I mean?

You can use a lipbrush somehow, if you can get it into the gloss tube. Maybe a really thin brush. Then you can always clean it.

Hey hun!

Usually just a lip brush OR you can buy disposable lipgloss wands/applicators ๐Ÿ™‚ Kind of like disposable mascara wands? Only for lipgloss!

I love to wear gloss alone, but I prefer that it is not too sheer, but has a hint of color to it.

i did lipstick ONLY up until dec last year when i bought red romp and saw how lipglass can transform the lipstick and the overall look.

i’m now a lipglass/lustreglass whore. self-professed and not abashed to admit it!

I wear gloss alone or over lipstick, but I never wear l/s alone, that wouldnยดt be moisturizing enough for me.

Sometimes I wear it alone, sometimes over lipstick, it really depends on the colors and the occasion, to be honest!

I really don’t know! It has only been about 6 months since I got my first lipstick so I am still trying things out, but gloss on its own is so much easier :p

LOL. I find that gloss always leaves a ring, whereas lipstick fades better. But I rarely wear lipstick on its own, so it doesn’t matter, ha!

IF I’m in a hurry I only wear lipgloss and also if I want a not so done look, but if I have the time and want a more defined look I will wear lipstick and just in the middle of my upper and lower lips a dab of gloss to make them look fuller.

i always wear a balm before anything else… but just gloss with balm is fine as well. i only have one lipstick… this nude brown. sometimes i layer that with gloss aswell
