I have to admit, I’m a total lip gloss addict. I think I own at least 20 lip glosses, but only a few lipsticks. I just never really thought lipsticks looked nice on me since my lips tend to get dry so easily. I thought lipsticks looked caked and dry on me and stuck to glosses, but little did I know that I was missing out on a world of pigment, coverage, and color. Yes, there are lipsticks out there that all ladies can rock, because they are simply as shiny, smooth, and easy to apply as gloss is. I tried on many, many lipsticks so I could share my favorites in terms of consistency, texture, and pigment. Here are some great lipsticks that any gloss addict can transition to!
It would be remiss of me not to mention Lipstick Queen first. This is a fantastic line to try because of the different levels of pigment and coverage you can get. The Sinner line is more heavily pigmented (90% pigment) and the Saint line is more sheer (10% pigment), but both feel amazingly soft and smooth as you apply. My favorite right now is Medieval, which is also a fantastic red for ladies who might be a little wary of red, like myself at first. It’s practically a universally flattering shade of red that stains your lips with color. It’s never looked cakey or dry on me and always looks so luscious–even more luscious than a gloss would look!
