all of the above! lol. I'm never without lip gloss! lipstick for special times & it depends on the stain, I haven't tried the newer ones, but the older ones would flake off of my lips & leave them dry & I HATE DRY LIPS! I also have "chap" stick everywhere, I go crazy without gloss or chap stick on my lips, but I don't buy the ones that are petrolium based, only bees wax or shea butter, because you injest that stuff & really, who wants a tummy full of vasoline?
I really like the richness in color that lipstick offers, but it can be hard to maintain throughout the day since it can be drying. Gloss is too messy for me, and stains just don't have the impact that I want. So, I usually stain my lips with lipstick then put a thin layer of balm on top for some sheen.
I like stains. Lipstick feels too much and lipgloss I lick off, whereas stain is just enough and sticks. I use one from The Body Shop. If I want it to be a little darker, I will fill in my lips with lipliner before I apply one layer of stain, let it dry, and apply another one.
I'm a gloss person, usually because I prefer a neutral lip look and dramatic eyes. The darker and thicker the mascara, the better, and I think lipstick would be too much. I don't have a favorite lip gloss, so I'm curious what everyone else's thoughts are. Or heck, I'll even entertain a particularly good lipstick if someone can recommend something really dramatic.
