For years I only wore lipstick. Hated the stickiness of lipgloss, but in the last year I’ve become a die-hard lipglass fan.

I’m working this weekend; preparing joint stips. and proposed orders.

Temptalia: Good luck w/ finals! You’ll do great.

Ohh, I was just like you – well not quite, but I hated lipgloss for awhile, and now I LOVEE IT!

Thank you! One down, three to go!

I love anything that looks good, ligloss or lipstick, but i have to say my favorite lipgloss right now is victorias secret’s 2 for 10 glosses because they taste so good!!

I love lipstick! To be more precise, pink lipstick! I have a few too many lipsticks, most of them in various shades of pink. I guess I just have a weak spot for pink makeup =)

Hmmm…lipstick! Especially red lipstick. It makes me feel so super-starish.

I too am studying for finals! Yesterday I handed in a 51 page psychology essay. >_< Its that time of the year when teachers in every country try to kill university students.

What are some of your favorite reds, Tekoa? I always feel like everybody will be looking at my lips if I wear red.

WOW! 51 pages, yowza!! Congrats on finishing it 😀

I know yowza! I probably drank enough coffee to kill a hampster. *lol*

This month I’m loving Stylistic and Dubonnet. Oh, and the Scene, which is more of a berry red.
Red lips definatly stand out it a crowd.

Definitely lipstick – in all shades of red, of course 🙂 I didn’t like gloss before I started using Clarins lip balm, which I now use as a thin layer over matte lipstick. I don’t use lip gloss unless I am going for a nude lip, which hardly ever happens!

Favorite reds, Tonee? I know your darks, but what about your favorites for reds?

Oh, and what is your go-to nude? I never used to do them myself, but I’ve learned to appreciate it!

Oh the fav reds list is a very LONG one but here are the shades I wear most often:

Clarins Passion 350
Clarins Fusion 560
Clarins Grenadine 07
Revlon Certainly Red
Revlon Ruby Rapture
Revlon Scarlet Velvet
Maybelline Royal Red
Maybelline Wine and Roses (discontinued but I have a back up!)
Laura Mercier Indian Summer
Laura Mercier Moulin Rouge
Laura Mercier Marquise
MAC Ruby Woo
MAC Chili
Smashbox Lovely

And yes, I do have a *few* other shades……

My go-to nude shade;

MAC Touch

Yet another vote for pink lips 🙂 LOVE IT! I do lipstick with gloss on top usually. Almost always pink. I recently had a MA talk me into the joys of red clothing and pink lips, she said it was very valentines day looking and could also be pulled off at Xmas time if done right. I am still a little on the fence about it but giving it a try. I like red lips but during the day at a school function it can come across as a bit much.

This weekend is going to be mellow for us. Doing some bell rining for the Salvation Army later today as volunteers for the cub scouts. An indoor soccer game tomorrow and going to finish decorating. I have my sewing final on Wed, I have a little bit of studying left to do in order to feel prepared.

Love pink lips!! 🙂

I usually do lipstick + gloss, too. It’s hard for me to wear either alone. I’ve found deeper reds aren’t so bad in the day, especially when they’re semi-matte or matte.

You guys are always busy and helping others out 🙂 It’s so nice to see!

Good luck on your sewing final!

My fav makeup item of all times are lipsticks, even if I have nothing else on, I will always apply a lipstick before I go out – Red lippies are my ultimate makeup weapon!

As for what’s lined up…finals for me as well. Good luck on yours, Christine!

Lipstick with a little bit of gloss on top. My preferences are #1, Mary Kay shade Cranberry; #2, Cover Girl shade called Delight.

Gloss for me just needs to be shine, but if we’re picking a color, the Aloha shade from Mary Kay.

I love both lip gloss & lipstick, I’ve got almost every shade known! I love the color & intensity of the lipstick, but the look & feel of the gloss is like nothing else!

I’m a gloss freak, but I think I’m going to see if the coral or pink finery sets suit me. If so, Merry Christmas to me!!

I plan on spending my weekend bumming around with the hubby & our two doggies. It’s cold & snowing, but I imagine we’ll bundle up and indulge the pups with their usual weekend trips to the dog park anyway. Our female was living in NC last winter (we rescued her in August) so she saw snow for the first time this week and is a total clown running around in the few inches that’s fallen. The park should be a riot. =)

I hope one of them works out for you, Kelly! What are your favorite glosses?

Aww, how cute! I just heard one of my parents’ dogs spent 5am hunting for a racoon under their deck. Dogs, so much fun to be had!

Anything non-sticky with decent color payoff. Pretty much only have BE Buxom lips, MAC, and Rimmel (a girl’s gotta have some cheap glosses!).

I prefer glosses, but I like either bright pinks and purples for lips or really natural and soft tans, pinks, and clear glosses.

And I’ll be studying too… good luck 🙂

lip stain only one or two shades deeper than my natural lip color. it should be more berry, not more pink or red. lip stain doesnt leave the lips as quickly as either gloss or lipstick and looks more natural while still delivering color. if you want to prevent windburn during the winter, use lip gloss over it.
