I wish I could say lipstick, but I have yet to find one that does not severely dry out my lips and chapped lips with lipstick looks really disgusting. So lip gloss for me, although I agree it is usually too sticky and it is very annoying if your hair blows in it. Especially if you wear glasses and your lip-gloss-covered hair then gets blown onto them.

I use both, but I prefer lipstick and use it more often. The problem with glosses is that they catch a lot of attention and, in my opinion, they make me a teenager look. I also feel that lipstick with a bit of lipbalm makes my lips look fuller than gloss, and, well, the effect looks much better. And there's the problem of stickiness too... So I vote for lipstick!

Eau de Gloss, Bourjois . With 14% of water. You just don't feel it. But some people were complaining (my mom for example) about drying your lips, but I didn't have this problem.

I wear both layered on top of each other, or I use one or the other. Just depends what I see first when I look into my bag.

I've worn gloss for forever (I've only used lipstick a handful of times), but I'm starting realize maybe it doesn't look as great as I initially thought. I have really full lips so gloss can look sloppy quite easily I think a super moisturizing/creamy lip balm is best.

I love the Chanel glossimers but I received a Too Faced gloss and I have to say it stayed on very long and wasn't sticky or extremely shiny.

For the last few months lipstick and lipgloss have been hand-in-hand for me, can't wear one without the other! Love pairing Lancome Color Fever 312 (pink in the limo) with Chanel glossimer 105 for a pink look or MAC Lady Bug with MAC Venetian lustreglass for a hot red lip!

Lipgloss does nothing for me , it doesnt really enhance your face anyhow IMO
Lipstick on the other hand brightens your whole face and can make anyone look prettier/healthier

How do you lot put gloss on top of lipstick without the lipstick dripping off? Whenever I have tried that the lipstick and gloss has become some runny liquid mess similar to honey and it looked like my lips were melting off of my face. Oh, and I didn't put much gloss on at all, either.

^ my issue with using the two together is more of the lipstick staining the gloss applicator and making it yucky

I'm definitely a lipstick girl - there is something that is just so...elegant about lipstick that lipgloss just can't match. I also tend to prefer matte/stain type colors too, and lipstick just lasts longer (seriously, I feel like I need to reapply gloss every 15 minutes, and my hair sticks to it when its windy - and I live in Chicago, so that is often).

Nars is my favorite - amazing quality and colors (here's a good review - http://www.3luxe.com/best_ofs/Lipstick/NARS_Lipstick). Afghan Red and Spanish Red are great when you want a dramatic look; Schiap is also fun (but I'm a little obsessed with Schiaperelli and her signature shocking pink).

I tend to stick with balm when I don't want bold lips, though - my lipcolor preferences are all or nothing.
