I’m the only “other” so far! Because I can’t be bothered to convert dollars to pounds sterling.

I’d spend up to £20, which is considerably more than $20 but I’m not sure how much more. Depending on the size of it, and how amazing it was, but even the MOST INCREDIBLE GLOSS EVER I couldn’t spend more than that on, ’cause at the end of the day it’s still lipgloss and that could buy me food groceries for a week.

My favorites are MAC dazzleglass and NARS lipglosses, now those two are quite expensive but it’s still worth every penny, so the heck with it. They always have gorgeous colors I just couldn’t resist, I just pretend I didn’t know whenever I did some serious impulsive purchase. 8 l/g in 1 purchase, now that was my hand, not me, LOL

yeah chanel is quite expensive so I selected $30. Although with taxes, its a bit more I think. For me, its not about price but use. I have many $10ish lip glosses that I only use 1/3 or 1/2 of the tube. However if I love a lip gloss and its $30 but I actually use all of it, then in my mind, I can justify it. Ideally, I would fall in love with a product that’s less than $10.

On average, I’d say $20 or less if I’m on a specific shopping trip with a budget and/or list, because that’s what I’ll allow. However, if I’m on a splurge shopping trip, I’ll buy anything I fall in love with. For example, I was going to visit my bff in NYC and I saved up so I could shop the new Illamasqua line, but didn’t like how any of it swatched on me. Suddenly, I had ‘free’ money. At that point, spending $25 or so on a fabulous gloss wasn’t a big deal compared to the $200 I had alotted to drop at Sephora that day.

I love lipglosses so price is not really important for me if we are talking about a good one. I don’t use lipsticks so I can afford to spend some money on a gread lipgloss that will pump my lips and make them shine

Chanel is the only brand in which I have more than 1 lipgloss from…3 total (2 Glossimers & Aqualumiere) The # will become 4 since the Luminous Lip Satin is out finally! and it’s $32. The most I have spent so far on ligloss was around $40 from Sisley Paris. It was worth it.

I know this isn’t a lipgloss but I purchased the Extra Silky Lipstick from Cle De Peau and it wasn’t cheap – $50. I was really disappointed. It wasn’t exactly silky but more like gritty & didn’t lasts that long. It got returned!

I wouldn’t pay more than 25 euros for a gloss. I don’t know what it is in dollars (over 30 maybe ?) but well. I have a couple chanel, ysl and dior lipglosses. They’re expensive but my little treat from time to time.

no more than $20. I rarely buy lipgloss but if I did I wouldn’t mind spending 20 dollars for one just once or twice but I wouldn’t pay $20 for one all the time.

i’d spend up to a maximum 20 GBP…which although is equivalent to $33, I would be highly unlikely to spend the same on a lipgloss in north america…i’ve just gotten so use to the cost of cosmetics being so high here and succumbed!

I’ve bought 3 Dior lipglasses back when I was a sophomore in highschool because I thought they were so pretty… but now I realized that they were expensive and I would never pay that much for lipglasses since they’re less than $30 but more than $25.

Well the most expensive one I have bought is a Dior gloss, 24.50
It depends on if the color is amazing haha! I don’t really know how high I would go though. but I voted $25 or under.

With the exception of drugstore lip stains, I buy all of my lip products from mineral makeup companies because I prefer their formulas, ingredients, and low prices. As such, $4 or under is ideal. I’m still willing to pay for lip products up to $6. Over $7 is really pushing it. I absolutely hate the stickiness of polybutene/polyisobutene/isobutene that comprises most drugstore and high-end lipglosses. I see no reason to shell out tons of money for formulas that I can’t tolerate.

The most I’ve spent is the price of the dazzleglass from MAC… no idea how much it was. But usually I won’t spend more then 20 dollars on a lipgloss. Face products are a whole other story…lol

I won’t spend more than 10 on a lipgloss, generally. Lipgloss is one of those things I tend to cheap out on, mostly because I don’t wear it that often anyway.

Make up is so expensive in Australia.
The most I’ve spent on a gloss is roughly $50.
We pay at least 2 times more for cosmetics here compared to America.

I am quite picky with my lipglosses. Occasionally, I do come across nice drugstore finds. However, more often I end up buying from the higher-end counters. I put $40 and under as my acceptable range, since I have spent $33 CAD on Chanel lipglosses numerous times. I’ve also spent $37 CAD in a Dior lip maximizer before as well.
