How do you feel about sticky lipgloss?

How do you feel about sticky lipgloss? Zero tolerance policy? The stickier the better?

As long as it’s not really thick and really sticky, I can handle it. I prefer non-sticky in general, but I’ll take a little tackiness in exchange for longer wear!

I can deal with sticky, but not crazy sticky, like you said. But overall, I just don’t care for sticky lipgloss since I don’t need my hair flying onto it and sticking.

I completely agree with you on this! And of course, for some reason, I used to reach out for lipglosses whenever I had my hair down. Not much an issue now that I had 19 inches chopped off!

I HATE it. I don’t like being able to feel product on my lips at all (which is why I only started wearing lipstick in my late 20s). I don’t wear gloss at all, and sometimes even really creamy lipstick or gooey lip balm bothers me.

I don’t mind too much, really. So long as a lip product isn’t drying, I can live with pretty much any texture. Unless it’s somehow so sticky that it makes strings when you open your mouth… That would be awful, but fortunately I’ve never experienced that!

As long as it doesn’t “slide” around, I’m good. Some stickiness can help the product adhere better, last longer, and prevent bleeding (particularly if it’s a super pigmented color). However if it slides, transfers at the drop of the hat, or gets goopy on me, then I throw the towel in; that amount of discomfort is just not worth it!

Nope, nope, nope – can’t stand sticky! My hairstyle is such that it gets stuck constantly in sticky lipgloss if I walk outside and there’s even a tiny breath of wind. Unfortunately finding a non-sticky lipgloss is about as easy as finding a talking horse.

I loooove sticky lipgloss, it stays where you put it! If it’s not sticky it slides around too much. Also I have short hair, so getting hair stuck to my gloss isn’t an issue for me.

I think sticky is ok if it means longer wear. I don’t think I have any glosses that are sticky and thick. The very thought of that makes me shudder.

I used to tolerate it (MAC Dazzleglass) but having found glosses with much less sticky formula that’s just as vibrant and lasting if not more, I don’t think I’ll buy anything known to be heavily sticky again!

I’m the same way! I don’t mind a little stickiness but it can’t be super thick to the point where it’s creating lines or feel like paste. They tend to look icky too after a while

Hate. I bought a mac lipglass once in high school and it traumatized me so much I haven’t gotten one since. I tend to like things really balmy. I also don’t like high shine on anything – even gloss, and like to pat it down to more of a satin/natural finish, and it’s much harder to do that with stickier glosses.

Like you, so long as it’s not like glue, I’m good – especially if the wear is good. Honestly, when it’s windy outside, my hair is going to get stuck in my lipgloss, sticky or not! But I hate when my lipgloss-tipped hair drags across my glasses.

More important, how does the person you are planning to kiss feel about sticky lip gloss? LOL I have really big lips and look ridiculous with really shiny gloss anyway, so I’ll pass.

my fave ever is still Mac lipglass. i have Guerlain, YSL, Dior, Inglot, Dior, Chanel, Too Faced, and Stila. Mac lipglass is by far my fave formula of all time. I hear everyone say they are stick so i guess i love sticky!

My one and only favorite lip gloss is MAC’s lip glass. It is moisturizing, the colors are great, and i can get a few hours wear out of it before i have to re-apply

If it’s a dark, opaque gloss, my feeling is the stickier, the better. Very slick, dark glasses don’t just bleed on me, they *hemorrhage.* If it’s a lighter gloss, then I don’t mind it slightly sticky but not excessively so.

Agreed with Christine, a little tackiness is ok, sometimes good. Absolutely do not like sticky, thick or goopy. I hate that feeling of goop on my lips.

I used to love the tackiness of MAC Lipglasses. Then I tried Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer Lipglosses on your site’s recommendation, and haven’t been uncomfortable with tacky formulas since.

Loathe it! I haven’t worn lipgloss since I was 12. Every few years I’ll try one again, just to make sure, but inevitably I’ll pass. No matter how “light” or “non-sticky” they claim to be, it still feels like a goopy mess.

If it’s not super-super-sticky I can handle it. The stickiness of MAC lipgloss is just acceptable. I have really long hair and usually make a ponytail or an updo when I’m wearing gloss, otherwise my hair will get stuck in it.

HATE sticky lipgloss!

I have wavy shoulder/just above shoulder length hair and if a lip gloss is sticky my hair ends up to stuck to it.
Also I hate kissing with sticky lipgloss.

The texture of lip products is actually super important to me and I’ll gladly pick good texture over staying power

I can deal with some that others consider sticky but generally just no. In fact, I got a “lip stain” in one of my subscription boxes which I gave away despite loving the color because it was sticky. Who makes a sticky lip balm or stain?

I don’t like sticky lip glosses at all. I don’t like the feeling they give of the product on my lips. And my hair getting stuck to them. I had gotten a 3 pack of those stila lip glazes from nordstrom rack and they were just awful. Granted those are also an extreme case of stickiness. Luckily I was able to return them.

You know, I hate the idea of sticky lip glosses but I recently tried some of the new Milani one’s which are a bit sticky. I like them.
