The Sephora Ultra Shine lipgloss is such a nice formula! I have Reflex Dazzling Violet and I think it’s pretty close to the holographic gel formulas, though those sold out so quickly I missed them. It’s really pretty, REALLY sparkly, and still smooth.

**Cover Girl Lip Lava Gloss in Lava-ndr -cray purple pink sparkles, sticky but you can dilute it with a lip balm, and love it as a topper
**Cover Girl Jumbo Lip Gloss Balm Crayon in purple (think it’s Jam Twist) -this was the sleeper hit of the year. It’s a sheer plum purple, and was sitting in my stash for years, unused and unloved until I found out it goes well with 90% of my purple lippies.

Another case of my having just one on the list: Pomegranate Delirium! Although, I did have Queen Bee, I returned it unopened because once I got home, I noticed it looked so much like another gloss I already had.
Those Nyx Intense Butter Glosses are great! I don’t have these two shades (YET), but the ones I do have feel so good on, and have wonderful pigmentation!
Hmmm, I am wondering, though, where the Revlon HD glosses are? I really love them along with the Nyx and Sephora glosses!

Revlon HD gloss was reviewed in 2014! I only include products that I’ve tested in 2015 (they can be old, new, etc., but they have to be new-to-me in 2015) for the top of the year (since it’s specific to the year).

Oh, that is a bummer! I could have sworn all LVMH brands did not (well, inasmuch as China requires it, that part I’m not sure about).

Ok, it looks like I really need to pay more attention to Sephora brand lipglosses.

My favorite new/new to me DS lipglosses of 2015: Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer. Maybelline Colorlicious Lip Lava. Nyx Butter Gloss. E.l.f. Kiss Lip Balm. E.l.f. EX-tra Lip Gloss, especially Michael (gorgeous shade, and my hubby’s name). E.l.f. Shimmer Lip Gloss, especially the bright red one, Love.

They’re one of my favorites – very comfortable and not very sticky either, but they don’t disappear instantly. I do wish they’d be more specific about the opacity on individual shades, as the formula is all over the map (which seems by design).

I ant remember buying many glosses this year as it seems to have been the year for liquid lip sticks. I remember receiving two Chanel ones this year and getting a MUFE one in a Sephora favourites kit all of which were sticky so not great for texture however the limited edition Chanel one that I got for Christmas is a beautiful gloss. I think my all time favourite is still Smashbox though I didn’t buy any of theirs last year.

Some are really old Christine. Names like Razzle, Radiant and It Girl come to mind. All were limited edition. I loved one so much that I gave my daughter it to find me a dupe for my birthday last year and she got me a Chanel one. The colour is similar but not the formula. I also loved one called Spiceberry and recently got Loreal Flashdance as a dupe however this is a liquid lipstick rather than gloss.

Wow nearly a clean sweep by Sephora!!! I don’t have any of those yet but they are on my list! (Especially Lady Luck and Plum fiction and Pomegranite Delerium!) I kept putting them off to buy LE stuff this holiday season! I have the two NYX glosses and love them! Such great colors.

Completely agree with you on the NYX Intense Butter Glosses. I’ve never tried the Sephora Lip Gels, but I’m definitely checking them out now! These were not new in 2015, but they were new to me- I love the L’Oreal Glossy Balms on days where I want a low-maintenance lip that still has some color to it.
