If you had to pick 1 lip gloss...

That's the question I posed on my Beauty Broadcast Facebook Page today! I posted it this morning- and as of 4:10 in the afternoon I had 83 responses! Many different kinds were mentioned, but here are the top 5 brands...

  1. MAC
  2. Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush
  3. Revlon
  4. C.O. Bigelow
  5. (3-way tie) Lancome, Smashbox, Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips


Since I asked the question, it's only fair that I come up with an answer too, right? After spending far too much time trying to pick just ONE lipgloss... I am confident in my choice. Pictured above is Jordana Pretty Shine Lip Gloss in Lovely. It's a brand available at Walgreens, and items in that brand are usually 2 for $3. Why did I pick this shade?
  • It's almost always with me in my purse
  • It has a gorgeous shine and shimmer
  • Consistency is slightly thick, but not sticky... lasts a decently long time
  • Overall, it looks pretty neutral but at times appears to have the slightest berry undertone
  • It's the shade I'll put on if I haven't yet picked out an outfit because I know it will look good with everything
  • It's cheap
  • Clearly- it's loved. The label has been completely rubbed off.

I have so many- too many- lipglosses in my collection. I have some light nudes that I LOVE. I have some reds and deep plums that are wonderful as well. But if I had to pick just one and throw everything else out... this Jordana lipgloss is the one that I'd have to pick. Now that I've forced myself to think about this somewhat depressing situation... I'll revert back to my world of enough lipgloss to doll-up a small army. Have a fantastic day!

  2. Oh! I can't think of my favourite lipgloss either!! I don't know how you chose! Especially from your HUGE stash of them >.<

    Boo. . . I want to try out that Jordana lipgloss! But it's not available in Canada!!

    Has your QOTW moved to Facebook now? Cause I can't find it on your blog anymore. . .

  4. Well I am unfortunately IN LOVE with NARS Orgasm. It's staying power is the BEST I have ever tried. It's not sticky and it's doesn't tingle. I like buxoms but they arent' my HG?
    Does anyone know if there is a really close dupe to NARS "O"?
    TIA

  9. I don't think I can pick one favorite, but my top favorites would be Covergirl, Almay, and lately I'm loving Sexy Mother Pucker.

  12. Excellent products. We're using a lot of Coastal Scents here. What do you think about these cosmetics?

  13. I found your post while I was searching online for Jordana Lovely because I can't find it in my Walgreen's anymore! I TOTALLY agree with you-- it is my go-to lip gloss and if I had to pick one to take forever, this would be it! Now I'm afraid I'll never find it again! I may have to drive to another city for it!
