Worst lipstick: CoverGirl Continuous Color. The color was strangely orange when it was supposed to be brown.

Worst lipgloss: Caboodles Swirl Gloss. It was like putting water on my lips.

Worst lipliner: Wet n Wild lipliner, but this was one I tried in the late 1990s. Maybe they have improved?

Well, I haven’t tried a lot of lippies, so…

Worst lipstick you’ve tried? – Um. I don’t think I’ve bougth a BAD lipstick, so I’m going to say NYX Narcissus ’cause my tube looked like, waxy and “stringy” on my lips… The others were so so pigmented and creamy, I dunno if it was just my tube or if it’s really like that.

Worst lipgloss you’ve tried? – Well, I never wear IsaDora Reflecting White. IT’S SO GRITTY! >_<

Worst lipliner you've tried? – I haven't tried any lipliners! Does white eye liner count, lol? It makes colours very nice and bright but gives a thick, waxy look to your lips :L
Black doesn't look bad with lip gloss over it, since… It's black and doesn't really show up flaws xP It's gorgeous with a sparkly one like MAC Funtabulous over it! ~
… Uh, off topic.

Worst lipstick you’ve tried? For me, it was NYX Round Lipstick. The smell of these really bothers me. To my nose, they smell like the deodorizer in a cheap nightclub. Ugh
Worst lipgloss you’ve tried? I don’t like most lipgloss. The color is usually too sheer to be worthwhile for me.
Worst lip liner you’ve tried? I have to say MAC. They’re very hard and difficult to apply.

Worst lipstick you’ve tried? Catrice’s Coral lipstick. Thank god it discontinued. It was a really pink lipstick will chunky silver glitter pieces. There was nothing coral to it.
Worst lipgloss you’ve tried? Rimmel Vinyl Gloss. It smells really awful and it is gone within 10 minutes.
Worst lip liner you’ve tried? NYX’s lipliner in Chestnut, it tugs so much on my lips and is so drying.

I had a horrible brown lipstick I bought from Avon in high school, but it was that era of the 90s when horrible brown lipsticks were in, so I suppose I don’t really blame Avon for that… XD

Worst lipstick you’ve tried? – mac ruby woo, amazing color and I normaly love mac lipsticks but this one was soooo drying, even applying it felt uncomfortale
Worst lipgloss you’ve tried? – the old YSL ones (clear&black packaging)they just smalled awful
Worst lip liner you’ve tried? – every lipliner I tried out so far, the just dry out my lips

You shouldtry the Rimmel 1000 Kisses lipliner! I ot it for 8dollars and they are realy moisturising and the colours are really nice 🙂

Worst lipstick: MAC Cherish (MAC lipsticks in general are very drying on my lips)
Worst lipgloss: Bobbi Brown (too sticky, and too little product for the price. Awful smell also.)
Worst lipliner: I don’t like them in general!

Worst Lipstick

I havent come across a bad lipstick to be honest, but if i was to say which lip product i wouldnt buy again, i would say MUFE aqua creams for lips, far too drying. Whatever aqua creams i have left i am probably going to use as blush


Cargo Lip Gloss in Alexandria or alexandra, it was a beautiful nude shade, but it would dissappear in moments, plus the actual tube was so messy, and it would come out of the outer packaging.

Lip Liner

Mud lip liners, Its like dragging a cocktail stick on ur lips,

Worst Lipstick: I hate to say it, but the one Mary Kay tube lipstick I’ve tried was seriously disappointing. Drying, the smell was off, and it was WAY too pigmented, even when I tried using a lip brush and applying delicately. Hopefully that was isolated to that particular shade.

Worst Lipgloss: I haven’t met a lipgloss that I didn’t enjoy.

Worst Lipliner: Hard Candy. I normally like most of their products, for the value, but the lipliner was just disappointing–even at the price!

worst lipstick: prestige, if was drying and did not show up true to color. It made my lips so chapped and the formula was not at all creamy.
worst lipgloss: the old Victoria’s Secret Sweet Talk. I was like glue!
worst lipliner: paladio

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick – so drying.
Lipgloss: Rocket lipgloss (free gift) – drying, weird grey, silver color. I threw it out.
Lipliner: NYX, also a free gift. Brittle and painful to draw on the lips.

Worst lipstick you’ve tried? Mac Ruby Woo – hands down! I do NOT understand the hype about this lipstick. Within 15 minutes, it began to fade and flake on my lips. It was gone within 30 minutes. Talk about a let-down! I have tried blotting (then re-applying), sealing the color with lipgloss, applying with a lip brush, but NOTHING WORKS. I haven’t been back to my local Mac counter since buying this disappointing lipstick. Drugstore lipstick formulas like that of Revlon Super Lustrous & Covergirl Lip Perfection are FAR superior to this lipstick, not to mention other high-end brands like MUFE.

Worst lipgloss you’ve tried? I really cannot think of an answer for this survey question. I have generally liked the lipgloss formulas I’ve tried, including Estee Lauder, Lorac, Lancome, etc. 🙂

Worst lip liner you’ve tried? Revlon Colorstay lipliners. The colors are hypo-pigmented; the nude shades are almost invisible on the lips.

Nyc some hot red color.
Nyc again a nasty thick opaque metallic light pink lipgloss. If I get a deep tan and some plastic surgery it could look hot.
Revlon colorstay- some mauve color. Too moist. Just a dreezy mess.

Worst lipstick you’ve tried? This awful Maybelline one that was super frosty
Worst lipgloss you’ve tried? L’Occitane lipgloss
Worst lip liner you’ve tried? haven’t tried many, so not really sure

Worst lipstick: uhm, I haven’t been disappointed by a lipstick, yet
Worst lipgloss: I used cheap lipglosses (most of them came from girly magazines) from 10 to 15 years. for what i remember, they were all awful (but i didn’t care!) XD
Worst lip liner: one by Kiko, i think it’s called Naked, or Nude. too soft, too light, also.

Worst lipstick? Cargo Plant Love-felt like rubbing a candle on my lips-icky!
Worst lipgloss? Rimmel Vinyl Shine-strange consistency-very watery.
Worst Lipliner? Prestige…it’s so dry and drags on the lips.

Worst lipstick – I wanted to say Maybelline ColorSensational because it was so drying when I first got it, but now they seem to be OK…

Worst lipgloss – I will have to go for a Sally Hanson lipgloss which was SUPER sticky and I can never apply it evenly. Never used it again.

Worst lipliner – don’t normally use it so don’t know.

Worst Lipstick: Ever Hip from the MAC Give Me Liberty collection. No matter what I do it looks streaky and cakey even when putting lip balm on first.
Worst Lip Gloss: Can’t really think of one.
Worst Lip Liner: I can’t stand NYX lip liners because they are so rough.

Don’t use lip liner and rarely gloss, but I can barely tolerate the smell of Bobbi Brown lipstick–what is that aroma anyway? And they’re dry too.

I’ve tried two drugstore brand red lipglosses that didn’t work out. One was L’Oreal Colorstay in Rebel Red. The color was pretty fantastic, but it came off on everything. I’ve never had lip color on my teeth before that gloss. Also, I had a dark red Revlon gloss that was almost intolerable. You HAD to study the application in the mirror, or it would be streaky and would accumulate on the edges of your lips. It was fantastic over a dark plum lipstick, though.

I don’t really have a worst lipstick or gloss, but the worst lip liner I tried was from wet’n’wild. not because of the texture, but the color was HORRIBLE on me. I was sad because it was the one that nearly everyone on makeupalley said was their HG lipliner.

Worst lipstick: A Maybelline one… I don’t remember the name of it, but it was something having to do with diamonds. It was very gritty and dried my lips out like crazy.

Worst lipgloss: Hmm… I’d have to say I really like the NARS lipgloss colors, consistency, and longevity, but the smell really awful sometimes. I don’t know if they’re the worst lipglosses ever, but the do certainly have the worst scent.

Worst lipliner: I don’t really use lipliner! I had one from Sephora that was very rough and dry… that one sucked.

Worst Lipstick: NYX lighter shades lipsticks, the smell is aweful!!!
Worst Lipgloss: L.A. Colors. sticky and dries fast, leaving the ‘gloss’ a dark stain on the lips
Worst Liner: only tried NYX and i’ve gotto say its bad

Worst lipstick you’ve tried? Wet n Wild
Worst lipgloss you’ve tried? Philosophy (in the tube) so sticky!
Worst lip liner you’ve tried? Don’t wear lip liner.

Worst lipstick you’ve tried? Nars or MAC, both incredibly drying.
Worst lipgloss you’ve tried? MAC. Tiny and sticky!
Worst lip liner you’ve tried? Nars, drying and scratchy.

Worst Lipstick: Sephora (tasted like dung)
Worst Gloss: Urban Decay – Pocket Rocket (tasted and smelled disgusting)
Worst Liner: None so far.

Worst lipstick you’ve tried? Wet n Wild lipsticks back in the 90s. I lived in Florida at the time and one melted, which never happened to my other brands of lipsticks and I never held any of them over an open flame or anything (LOL), and the other one broke all the way off from the base on the day I bought it.

Worst lip liner you’ve tried? Wet n Wild again or possibly another similar cheap brand from a supermarket in Florida back in the 90s. They’re cheap and very long but they were too dry and tough like eye brow pencils or something.

Worst lip gloss I ever tried? MAC clear lipglass that I bought back in 2000 or 2001. It’s long lasting but far too thick, gloopy and sticky. Seemed too messy to deal with and once you squeezed out of the tube, there was no controlling it at all. It seemed to always come out of the tube! MAC should have put it in a wand container as they did with the colored ones.

Lipstick-a Sally’s brand called Nina Ultra Pro.
Lipgloss-Amphigory’s Pixel gloss.
Lipliner-not much of a liner user.

Worst Lipstick: Lauder lipsticks, I’ve seen some great colours, but I CAN’T stand the smell!!

Worst Lipgloss: Mac clear lipglass in the squeeze tube, regardless of what you do, it always leaks, and the gloss is far too sticky!

Worst Liner: MUFE Aqua Lip Waterproof pencil, in Nude Beige 1C… The consistency is great, but the colour was horrid on me… definately not a good nude for everyone!

Worst Lipstick: Maybelline Color Sensational in Pink Please. I don’t get the hype; the color isn’t rich, plus the overly sweet smell gives me a headache
I don’t use lipgloss or lipliner

Worst Lipstick= I cannot stand any L’Oreal lipstick purely because of the smell. It’s this sharp candy-like scent and it literally makes me feel sick to my stomach.

worse lipstick- rimmel,
worse lipgloss- Lorac, way way back long ago…it was in a pot, tacky and just yuck
worse lipliner- Estee Lauder pencil- drags on the lip, difficult to applied

Worst lipstick you’ve tried?NYX round
Worst lipgloss you’ve tried? NYX megashine…dries my lips if I wear it alone
Worst lip liner you’ve tried? Wet n wild

Worst Lipstick= Revlon Matte Lipstick in Nude Attitude; It showed ALL the flaws in my lips!
Worst Lipgloss= I’ve never met a lipgloss i didn’t like LOL.
Worst Lipliner= I have only ever tried 2, and I love them both. One is MAC and the other is MaryKay.
