i have a ruby&millie lipgloss that tastes disgusting (the taste gets down your throat and just sticks there), has a grainy texture and is just wet rather than sticky. it either disappears or slides into the corners of my mouth and dries after about half an hour, whenever i forget how terrible it is and try it again. suffice to say i would never wear it out of the house.

Cargo lipglosses, the regular and the blu ray ones. They may feel good, but there is ZERO pigmentation. All of the colours look the exact same when you put them on clear.

I have to say it’s Shiseido The Makeup Lip Gloss.
I have it in G6 Bare Berry and it disappears completely withing half hour! Granted, it’s not sticky and looks glossy at first, but no staying power at all… 🙁

I own a whole bunch (I’m taking like 10) of the Bare Escentuals Buxom lip glosses and I used to love them when I first discoevered them and I went crazy for the huge range of colours, but now I just can’t stand the extremely minty feeling and taste. They are non-sticky, but it tastes like pure menthol and smells very artificial like doughnuts, which confuses my brain. Both turn me off. I even tried to give them another chance last week when I saw a new colour and I liked it so much I bought it, but after a night of wearing it, I tossed it in that drawer full of un-used make up.

I actually find Buxom glosses to be too sticky, mind you, these are the glittery ones. I’ll still wear them but I won’t be buying any more. I think I’ll just try BE’s regular glosses.

I agree with the Shiseido – they’re pretty in the tube and everything but once you apply it, they disappear within minutes…

My vote goes to Hourglass’ Extreme Sheen glosses, the ones in the long tube. While they look nice, they did not last longer than Shiseido’s glosses (the discontinued ones) on my lips. They also dried them out. They were advertised as long wearing I believe, so they really disappointed. They’re not the worst on the market, just bad for what they’re supposed to be.

Guerlain KissKiss gloss – their Terracota glosses have a great vanilla / caramel taste but not the KissKiss. Also they are not sticky for sure but I find the formula drying (and I prefer sticky gloss anyway).

My biggest problem with KissKiss is the smell and taste. I only bought one, the color is lovely but it’s rottening in my make up bag cause I can’t stand that horrible smell for a second.

Ugh, anything by Rimmel and I’m not enamoured of YSL Golden Gloss either. It bleeds, and the shimmer seems to vanish very quickly.

urghhh Bourjois Eau De Gloss… Jeeeeeez that was an awful experience… I definitely prefer heavier, even a bit sticky feel on my lips.

I have one by Essence, a cheap brand they sell in my country. They had this collection called the moonlight collection. In there also were 2 lipglosees. A clear one and a pink one. I bought the pink one, but when i put it on my lips it’s clear. Why make 2 lipglosses that are both sheer on the lips? Doesn’t make sense.

I hate Lise Watier plumpissimo glosses… They aren’t sticky at all but once you apply them, they seem to just slip right off and disappear!! The lasting power is like, 15 minutes… Bleh
