Beauty Chat: Matte Lips vs. Glossy Lips

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again- I definitely prefer matte lips on myself. I like a glossy lip on other people and think that it can be a really fun look, but I’ve found that matte lips just suit me better. That doesn’t stop me from picking up the occasional glossy lip product though. The other day I grabbed one of the newish Revlon Moisture Stains because I was curious and had heard good things. When I first tried it on, I wasn’t really sure about the color or the gloss. After wearing it for a bit, I decided I do like it a lot more when the color sinks in a bit and the gloss fades away. Anyways, I want to hear your thoughts on this!

Tell me: Do you prefer matte lips or glossy lips?

  2. I much prefer matte lips too, but the problem is that my lips get dry easily so I always need to apply lip balm or gloss :( So, lately I’ve been loving stains as well! Much prefer them over lipstick and they last longer for me…lately been using the Sephora brand stain!

    Oh, that’s a tough one! I don’t know if I could choose. I probably do glossy more but I don’t think I like either best.

  5. I think that matte lipstick looks better on me too! I don’t like the feel of glossy lipstick because it’s usually too sticky!
