I've found that using chapstick and a lip pencil allows for a muted matte look which looks more like a stain...almost as if your lips are blushing, but without the dryness of true matte lipstick.

Gloss is for teenagers

I like both, but for a more refined look I can't go past lipstick. It lasts longer and isn't so ridiculously shiny. Although I do find gloss rather moisturising. Hmmm, can't decide!

I use both because I find that some colours work better as a gloss, and others as a lipstick. So, all my glosses are pale neutral colours, and my lipsticks are darker colours - my favourite is red I just think that deep red or pink lipgloss would look ridiculous on me.

I was gonna write the same post. So I thought it would be easier to quote you.

I agree lipstick does seem sort of dated, like going through your Mother's old makeup, even though there are some lipstick brands that I like (mostly nudes though) I do tend to prefer glosess with a slight bit of colour to them. So my vote goes to glosses.

at the mom's jokes.

For casual occasions, running errands and just bumming around, lipgloss is great.

For special occasions, when a sophisticated, wordly look is called for, lipstick is IT.

I use both and although I have more lipglosses if i had to choose just one, i'd take lipsticks... They are just much better imo

I like glosses that have lots of color in.

I also really like the loreal lipstick/gloss duo- Invinvible kiss proof.
Apply the lipstick then 1 min. later apply the gloss. You get candy apple lips and the lipstick is so strong it doesn´t even show on the white wand of the gloss.

It lasts AGES on the lips and it´s great for a party!
The only inconvinient is that if you use it for several days it does dry the lips.
The Red one is simply amazing!!!

Both are in heavy rotation...but just a hint of vaseline and gloss for casual days out!

Lipstick! I really only like light and natural looking shades though. My lips are quite large compared to most people so it looks like I have a big pile of shiney goo on my lips. Plus it feels nasty.

Lipstick is a lot harder for women to pull off than lipgloss, but if you can wear it, I say do! If I ever wear lipstick I only dab it on top of lip balm so that it isn't too harsh.

Gloss works well for me personally. Everyone has their preference though.

I like lip gloss. I don't like how lipstick gets all over everything. Plus, I'd rather play up my eyes.
