β€’Stick or non-sticky lipgloss?- non-sticky

β€’Sheer or pigmented lipstick?- pigmented
β€’Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner?- pencil

I don’t have a preference when it comes to sticky or non-sticky lipgloss, but truthfully the majority of what I wear is sticky and it really doesn’t bother me that much!
I’m all about pigmented lipstick, I think it makes a great statement for when I go out because I feel like a lot of girls my age (20) don’t wear lipstick that much and instead just stick (no pun intended!) with lipgloss because it’s easier (I guess?). But recently I’ve started wearing lipstick and all of my friends love it…also on the sheer idea, I like sheer for during the day or even interviews/dinner dates because it is more subtle and natural.
I hate pencil eyeliner, I have been a pot and brush gel eyeliner girl for over 4 years now and will probably NEVER switch!! I think it looks so much better and I find that the Bobbi Brown gel pot eyeliners literally last for hours (until you take it off, that is!) I do use/wear pencil eyeliner only if I am ever going for a much more casual and smudged-looking eye.

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? It’s not important for me…I try to find only a right shade for my dark lips πŸ˜‰

Sheer or pigmented lipstick? Absolutly Sheer! I love this finish

Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Creme/Gel eyeliners are my favourite!

Hey Christine!
* Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? – Non-sticky! But if the color is awsome, then I can deal with the stickyness πŸ™
* Sheer or pigmented lipstick? – Depends on what look I want…a lot of eye makeup – sheer lipstick…..just mascara – pigmented lipstick!
* Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Pencil eyeliner, I can never use a cream/gel up because they always get dry so I stoped buying them and just sticked to my good old pencil eyeliners!

Slightly sticky lipgloss, it lasts longer. Pigmented lipstick (sheers don’t show up on my berry toned lips), and I usually go with pencil liner, unless I’m doing a cat eye. Usually though I skip eyeliner.

Stick or Non-Sticky Lipgloss: Sticky
Sheer or Pigmented Lipstick: Pigmented all the way <3
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner: Gel/Cream works better for my deep set eye.

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-Sticky! or right in the middle.
Sheer or pigmented lipstick? Pigmented, you can always sheer it out.
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Gel!

1. Non-sticky lipgloss – sticky is a deal breaker for me.
2. Pigmented lipsticks! – what’s the point of sheer? (I have pigmented lips & I’m not going to drop $20+ on a sheer color.
3. Gel eyeliners, usually. If I’m short on time, or simply don’t care, I reach for 2 pencils: EL soft smudge in black for upper lid (awesome!) & UD Zero for lower lid/waterline.

Non-sticky lipgloss–> i hate having hair stuck on my lips!
both sheer and pigment lippies–> different looks call for different pigmentation.
cream/gel liner–> a MUST! I have oily lids and can’t do even waterproof pencil πŸ™

– stick or non-sticky lipgloss: non-sticky. i can’t stand it when my hair gets stuck to my lipgloss!
– sheer or pigmented lipstick: pigmented. you can always sheer out pigmented lipsticks but can’t always build up sheer lipsticks for more color.
– cream/gel or pencil eyeliner: pencil liner all the way! my favorite is mac’s technakohl in graphblack.

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? Non sticky
Sheer or pigmented lipstick? both…depends on where I’m wearing it.
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Gel and pencil

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? NON-STICKY!
Sheer or pigmented lipstick? SHEER, AS IN LUSTRES
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? PENCIL (I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO USE GELS PROPERLY)

* Stick or non-sticky lipgloss?
I guess I’d prefer non-sticky. I don’t mind sticky as long as I have my hair up if it’s windy.

* Sheer or pigmented lipstick?
Pigmented! You might as well call it lipgloss if it’s sheer. Blech!

* Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner?
Cream/gel for sure. It goes on smoother and works better in the waterline. Plus, you don’t have to sharpen it.

Non sticky lipgloss: so my lips feel smooth as opposed to gluey
Sheer lip color in summer, opaque in winter
Gel liner on lids, (MAC technakohl) pencil on waterline

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss?
NON-STICKY! I hate it when the wind blows, and your hair gets stuck on your lips. Not. Sexy.

Sheer or pigmented lipstick?
I have VERY pigmented lips by itself, so I love me some pigmented lipstick πŸ™‚

Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner?
Cream/Gel all the way! I like the precision that I get from it, with whatever brush I use πŸ™‚ Plus, no need for sharpening to get that wing that I desire…

πŸ™‚

– Non-sticky lip gloss feels better, but as long as it’s actually keeps the shine it’s ok – DuWop lip venom has lovely color but it’s so thin and sticky the shine disappears after a very short amount of time >.>
– Depends! Flashes of color are really pretty, but since my lips are kinda pigmented (the rosy kind of pigmented), I dunno about sheer, LIGHT lipsticks πŸ˜› But who am I to speak, that have only owned 4 lipsticks, and my sister has 1 xD
– Pencil for lower lashline, even though I like using eye shadow for that. I think it’s really hard to use pencil liner as a liner actually, so I prefer eye shadow or liquid liner! πŸ˜› (Haven’t tried gel/creme yet but want to)

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? Definitely non-sticky
Sheer or pigmented lipstick? I like pigmented lipsticks
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Pencil, I don’t work well with cream/gels

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? non-sticky please, although really I wear whatever
Sheer or pigmented lipstick? pigmented
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? None, all make my eyes itch and I just can’t stand it

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? After too much time fighting it, I have come to LOVE sticky lipgloss – For the staying power.

Sheer or pigmented lipstick? Um… What do YOU think? Duh! LOL!

Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Completely depends on what you’re doing. They’re both necessary items in my kit. Gel eyeliner for long-lasting, precision work and pencils for smudging, smoking and blending with other eye products (shadows, pigments, etc.).

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? – Sticky! I love that feeling when you smack your lips together and you can feel the gloss!

Sheer or pigmented lipstick? Pigmented

Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Pencil

* I actually like non-sticky to semi-sticky lipgloss. These always leave my lips looking juicy lol *pigmented(I would hate to feel like I wasted my money for a sheer color) * Both (pencil for waterline and cream/gel for upper lashline always… they both serve a good purpose and one,in my opinion, is easy to applyon different and offer more control.

Non-sticky lipgloss
Pigmented lipstick
I use both gel liner and pencil, yes at the same time (have a large lash line to fill in. I tend to prefer pencil though.

* Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? – Either
* Sheer or pigmented lipstick? – Pigmented
* Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? – Pencil

– Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky.
– Sheer or pigmented lipstick? Pigmented lipstick (always!).
– Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Gel, but it depends on the color or the effect I want to create.

non-sticky lipgloss – especially really slick, smooth gloss
sheer lipstick – I prefer a tinted, more natural lip
pencil liner – (do kohls count?) I have better luck tightlining with pencils and kohls

* Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? – non-sticky!!!
* Sheer or pigmented lipstick? – sheer
* Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? – pencil

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? I don’t really mind…
Sheer or pigmented lipstick? Sheer.
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Gel.

πŸ™‚

1. I don’t care, they both have their pro’s and cons. Sticky tends to stay longer but it is more prone to get on your teeth and have your hair stick to it and non-sticky seems to slide off easily.

2.Pigmented! If I wanted sheer I’d use a lip gloss.

3. Pencil, it’s easier to fix if you mess up, you can use it without having to be so careful so it’s great when you are short on time.

Sticky or Non-Sticky Lipgloss?

Sticky, it feels nicer on my lips!

Pigmented?

Yesssss! πŸ™‚

Cream/Gel or pencil liner?

Its not on the list, but I love liquid liner (lancome art liner is the best!)

Stick or non-sticky lip gloss – non-sticky is preferable but will gladly do sticky for great color & texture though I prefer a sticky gloss to a lip stain.

Sheer or pigmented lipstick – sheer

Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner – it really depends on the look I’m going for but generally for work I use pencil with topped with a similar color shadow

* Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss?
Sticky – It stays where I put it.

* Sheer or pigmented lipstick?
Pigmented – There are some nice sheer lipsticks, but generally, if I want sheer I just use gloss.

* Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner?
Gel – I use pencils pretty often as bases for shadow, but if I want a nice defined line, gel’s the way to go.

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? Lipglass is my fav lipgloss. So sticky?
Sheer or pigmented lipstick? Sheer for sure. I am a lipgloss gal!
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? I love cream and gel eyeliners!!

I don’t really use lip gloss too much to care whether it’s sticky. I do like high shine and lasting power, though. And if a lipstick isn’t pigmented, it sure as hell isn’t coming home with me! As for eyeliner, it really depends on the finish I want, but I have more pencils.

* Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? HATE STICKY
* Sheer or pigmented lipstick? FIND SHEER COMPLETELY POINTLESS
* Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? none – Liquid

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? – either or! my hair is going to get trapped in there anyways! as long as it’s a pretty color, i really don’t mind!
Sheer or pigmented lipstick? – pretty sheer. i’m only 18 so i find that hyper pigmented lipsticks make me look like i’m trying too hard lol.
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? cream/gel definitely. pencils just smudge so bad on me! i don’t know how i went so long with only pencils!

Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? —-> *in between

Sheer or pigmented lipstick? —-> *pigmented

Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? —-> *neither: liquid or using my eyeshadow & an angled brush as liner

– Non-sticky (I definitely made exceptions though… Nars, I’m looking at you!)
– Pigmented, but buildable colors are very welcome in my collection
– Cream and Gel.. although pencils have thier own benefits.

Haha, i totally defeated the purpose of the survey and just stuck a “but” in every answer.. i’m hopelessly indecisive.

-Sticky gloss (it lasts longer)
-Pigmented lipstick (I can always sheer it myself, but it’s hard to make a sheer lipstick pigmented)
-Gel liner (more options all around!)

-Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? I am indifferent to this as long as it is long-lasting.

Sheer or pigmented lipstick? Pigmented, I love the lacquered lipstick from MUFE especialy the 220.
Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Almost always cream or gel, pencil sometimes for a day look.

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? Don’t care – the color and shine is the most important thing! Less sticky is better for keeping my hair from getting stuck to my mouth.

Sheer or pigmented lipstick? Pigmented is better for drama, but sheer is more versatile so both!!

Cream/gel or pencil eyeliner? Pencil all the way – easier to control and don’t have to bust out a brush to apply.

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? If it nourishes my lips then sticky πŸ™‚

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? non-sticky

For everyday I prefer sheer to semi-sheer. For a special event, a pigmented red lipstick that goes POW!
Mechanical pencil for day and tightlining my eyes. Gel eyeliner for evenings and more POW!

Stick or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky, but I rarely use lipgloss, I prefer lipstick all the way. I really dislike shiny looking lips on me.
