If you could only use one brand for lipgloss, which could you commit to?

Right now, my favorite gloss has been Bite Beauty’s Creme Lip Glosses but the biggest weakness is the lack of shades/range, but with the way I use lipgloss, I think I might be able to live with even that edited range. My second contender would be classic Anastasia Lipgloss, which I really enjoy for its more full coverage options but these days I’ve been gravitating toward more semi-sheer to medium, sparkly/shimmery glosses.

Oh man, that’s a hard one. I’m not really a gloss person, but I could probably do Bare Minerals lipglosses for forever, with Fenty Beauty glosses as a close second.

Now this is a hard one! I use Nyx’s Lip Butter’s the most, but they don’t have the type of shimmery shades I’m most fond of. Ah well, I’m not really a lip gloss girl anyway.

I don’t really own a lot of lipgloss and I definitely don’t require it to be opaque. I love my lipgloss from Morphe, MAC, Bare Minerals and ABH. If I had to choose one I’d probably go with MAC since they seemingly reformulated their lip glass and they have so much variety and colors

It’s just the one color, but I think i could live with only Fenty Glass Bomb in the original color. It’s sheer enough to go over most lipstick colors, but enough of a warm pink base that I could wear it alone. Most important of all, it’s really hydrating on my dry lips. I never take it out of my purse.

I didn’t get the appeal of the original shade of Gloss Bomb until I swatched it in Sephora. Now, I get the love. It’s really something special, even though it looks so unassuming in the tube.

I have only recently taken to wearing gloss so I don’t have a huge stash to draw from but my MAC glosses are very nice and so are the two I have from Pat McGrath. Flesh Astral is the one I reach for most so it would be high up in my ranking. Would go with MAC just for the shade range and comfort.

Mac lipglass. I enjoy everything about them. Shade range, smell, feel, accessibility, etc. Also, two of my hg glosses of many years standing are lipglasses, oh baby & nymphette.

ABH FTW! There is nothing like the stunning, long-lasting and non-sticky perfection that are Metallic Rose and St. Tropez from my girl Anastasia. They have my heart (and my money!). <3

If Fenty had more than 2 permanent shades, it would have to be them! Although, to be honest, I also love all their LE lipglosses that I own, too. Very cushy, hydrating and they last for quite awhile.

I’m also *strangely* a huge fan of MAC Lipglass due to the fact that they come in a slew of shades, they stay put for a very long time, and feel comfortable enough for their lasting power. So, MAC’s Lipglass, especially in its new formula, is neck in neck with Fenty!

Again, I’d have to go with NYX. The butter glosses are my favorite formula, and I don’t need a full range of shades. In fact, if you’d asked the same question 10 years ago, I would have said Max Factor, for the X-Rated gloss alone… While it was clear, I could layer it with any lipstick. It was also pretty much the only lip gloss I owned for many years, and one of a handful of products I not only finished, but also repurchased more than once!

Now that Urban Decay has gotten rid of the Revolution glosses, I had to think a bit. I don’t like the new Hi-Fi line very much.

I’m torn between Anastasia and MAC. Both have great quality and selection, and are reasonably priced. Anastasia is cruelty-free, so that would probably be my tie-breaker.

If they had larger selections, Fenty Beauty and Bite Beauty would be in contention. I adore the Fenty glosses I have, but with only two permanent shades currently, I don’t know if I would be happy waiting for LE releases. I absolutely love Bite’s Prismatic Pearls, but again…small selection. They are so gorgeous, though.

Ditto on Fenty Gloss Bomb (whatever the color because the smell and texture so do it for me) and second would be YSL’s (definitely for the colors and subtle glitter).

No contest!… Shiro Cosmetics — their base formula feels light on the lips, moisturizes, and the more pigmented ones blot beautifully. Most importantly, they custom-mix colors, and you can ask for degrees of coverage, right up to opaque. Great stuff.

The first Fenty Gloss Bomb is my favorite formula, and I have so many. It’s almost clear on me, but oh well. Runner up is Anastasia’s in the shades Fudge and Sepia. Love the formula and colors.

I’ve been enjoying the Pat McGrath pale fire nectar and the Colourpop lipglosses lately! Anyone try the Marc Jacob ones? They look so pretty!

The only gloss I need for the rest of my life is fenty gloss bomb in fenty glow!!!

I’m on my SECOND tube of it, after fully scraping out my first one!!

Chanel’s Glossimers were my absolute faves- then they discontinued them :P”””
So now It’s Cle de Peau glosses and Neutrogena MoistureShine.

I don’t know about a single brand. But my two favourite lip glosses are Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow (currently scraping the bottom of the tube and preparing to repurchase) and MAC Nymphette. I can live happily with these two alone for the rest of my life.

Probably Victoria’s Secret-it’s the only one I’ve found that doesn’t immediately attract all my hair. At least, this goes for their old Beauty Rush formula-I haven’t tried either of the new formulas yet.

This was easy for me to answer. MAC, no doubt at all. I love their lip glosses and they set the standard for me, every other gloss is measured after them, and they all fall short. I do enjoy some from other brands but they are few and far apart.

I cannot live without gloss! Marc Jacobs and Pat McGrath are in a tie for first. Second place is a tie between Anastasia and Bare Minerals And I want to try Stellar~

I’ve gotten a renewed affection towards glosses because of Bite Beauty’s formula. Not only are the colors super-pigmented and unique, but the moisture they deliver feels like a lip treatment. I have other brands that leave my lips feeling really good – the original Fenty Gloss Bomb and Dose of Colors lip glosses. These glosses are pretty and leave your lips softer and smoother than before they were applied.

Now, I want to try Anastasia’s glosses because of you Christine! You stated that they are the most pigmented. That was usually my issue with glosses in the past. While they delivered shine, the saturated color wasn’t there unless I layered with lipstick. Anastasia may have a new customer, especially if she has some sales this holiday season.

I’m not too into lipgloss but whatever doesn’t feel too sticky it bleeds. Tried Soap @ Glory, Bésame I like both of them. Many others I find too gooey. Yuck!
Dior has such a pretty case!
