Budget Friendly Lip Gloss: Favorites and Buys!

Thursday, July 04, 2013

Hey Everyone!!

Happy Fourth of July!

A week or so ago, I was chatting with a blogger friend about her love of MAC gloss. She was pretty peeved at them, the price of the glosses had went up and she was considering some cheaper options. I gave her a couple of ways to still get her beloved MAC in a less expensive way ( post soon!) and promised that I would do a post of my favorite cheap/budget friendly/drugstore glosses.

I'm not a big gloss wearer but when I do wear gloss, I look for high pigmentation because I have dark lips. I also look for less than $10 price range, texture( no sticky, goopy gloss) and the applicator in the gloss. Talk about being picky!!! But, when I wear gloss, I want to wear something I love! 

Here are some of my favorite glosses:

 Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Gloss

These have to be some the most pigmented, easy to wear glosses in the drug store/mass market store. They feel great on the lips and look good as well. The quality can be easily mistaken for expensive $14, $15 gloss. I just wish Maybelline  would do more colors like they do their lipsticks in these glosses.

 N.Y.C.  Big Bold Plumping Gloss

Do not worry, these glosses have no plumping effect at all. Matter of fact, they smooth the lips and fill in fine lines, so I think that might be the "plumping" action. The pigmentation is awesome in these glosses as well, giving me full color, almost like a lip lacquer or liquid lipstick.

NYX Round Lip Gloss

These lip glosses are some of NYX original products and they are just as good now as they were when they  first came out. Again, I love the high pigmentation and its easy on the gloop. Round Lip Glosses also have a wide variety of colors available.

What are your favorite glosses? Let me know in the comments!
