Lipstick vs. Lip Gloss

 

We’ve done some pretty intense comparisons, from MAC vs Sephora to liquid vs pencil eyeliner. But when it comes to lipstick vs lip gloss, it’s the our most contested showdown yet!

Why you should avoid it:

  • Stay away from glittery stuff unless you want to look like a middle-schooler!

Final verdict: Sure, which type of lip makeup you use probably depends on the situation. (Formal events or nighttime outings are perfect occasions to use lipstick, while lip gloss always looks nice just hanging around the house or going to school). Instead of choosing, though, between the two, why not get the best of both worlds and wear some clear lip gloss over your favorite color of lipstick? Who says you can’t have it all!?
