I’ve been stuck in this lipstick then lipgloss phase for the last month, but all before that I was a pure lipgloss girl, no extras needed. I start my day with lipliner(Vino or Chestnut) nude lipstick, and Bare Necessity dazzleglass. After that, I’ll probably only reapply the dazzleglass or use my spring bean lustreglass.

I have to have a pigmented gloss if I’m giong to wear it alone, usually! I don’t see the point otherwise ๐Ÿ˜‰

True! Good point you bring up. On occasion, I’ll slap on gloss to jazz up an otherwise bare face, but veryyy rarely.

I prefer lip gloss alone. I love wearing lipstick as well, but lately I’ve been hooked on my Dazzleglass in Money, Honey and Bare Necessity, and I won’t go anywhere without one or the other!

i perfer it alone just cause it is easier. now when it comes to a more polished look i will always wear it on top of lipstick.

mostly i just wear my lipstick matte

My first time chiming in here…Love the site.

I was a gloss girl exclusively, but I love some of the new MAC lipsticks and am trying those. I prefer my gloss alone because I hate to contaminate it with lipstick…ya know?

How are you girls getting around this? I dont want lipstick in my dazzleglass. Know what I mean?

You can use a lipbrush somehow, if you can get it into the gloss tube. Maybe a really thin brush. Then you can always clean it.

Hey hun!

Usually just a lip brush OR you can buy disposable lipgloss wands/applicators ๐Ÿ™‚ Kind of like disposable mascara wands? Only for lipgloss!

i did lipstick ONLY up until dec last year when i bought red romp and saw how lipglass can transform the lipstick and the overall look.

i’m now a lipglass/lustreglass whore. self-professed and not abashed to admit it!

That’s where I stand, too, Nell! I feel so weird with lipstick alone. I might do a matte lipstick alone, but I usually opt for gloss.

I really don’t know! It has only been about 6 months since I got my first lipstick so I am still trying things out, but gloss on its own is so much easier :p

LOL. I find that gloss always leaves a ring, whereas lipstick fades better. But I rarely wear lipstick on its own, so it doesn’t matter, ha!

IF I’m in a hurry I only wear lipgloss and also if I want a not so done look, but if I have the time and want a more defined look I will wear lipstick and just in the middle of my upper and lower lips a dab of gloss to make them look fuller.

i always wear a balm before anything else… but just gloss with balm is fine as well. i only have one lipstick… this nude brown. sometimes i layer that with gloss aswell

I admit that I wear it all. I am a big gloss wearer though. Plushglass, Lusterglass, Lipglass, and of course now Dazzleglass. I love them all.

Honestly, before I started getting on beauty blogs recently, I never wore them together. They seemed like too much, and I don’t want to feel like I have a layer of frosting on my lips!

I always heard from ladies at beauty counters that you could/should wear gloss over lipstick, and I figured it was just to sell me more product.

But from the blogs I’ve seen, especially yours Christine, wearing a gloss (preferably one that doesn’t exactly match the lipstick shade below) can make lips look gorgeous! Some of the combos you come up with are to die for! And you can get colors you always wanted but places never sold!

Now I’m a total fan! And I try to try new combos all the time. I notice that Mac often makes their lipglosses and lipsticks match in new releases, but I like is MUCH better when they aren’t meant to match! It much more dimensional!

I’m so glad that you gave it a try! I love playing with combos and seeing how a gloss will alter the lipstick, lol!

It depends on the shade. Some glosses are too sheer for my liking, so I mix it with lipstick. Mixing lipstick with gloss is fun!

normally i wear gloss over lipstick (lustre or dazzleglasses and sheerer lipglasses) but i wear my prrr lipglass alone or with a lipliner since its more pigmented
i dont really wear lipstick alone (dry lips)
