My Favorites: Lip Gloss

Like any beauty junkie, I've tried tons and tons of lip glosses and it's taken me awhile to find my favorite ones. Some smell weird, some are too sticky, some are too sparkly, some leave my lips feeling dry and some don't last long enough.

I've highlighted my top 5 favorite lip glosses and share my review on each below - do you agree with any of my picks? If not, which lip gloss is your favorite? I always love to try out new products! :)

my favorites: lip gloss by amybreckenridge

top row:
Lancome Color Fever Plumper - $26. This is my favorite plumping lip gloss! It doesn't sting at all like some plumpers do but makes my lips appear slightly larger then they are. The color lasts awhlie, isn't too sticky and does a pretty good job of moisturizing for a plumper. My favorite shade is 'Ample', a shimmering rosy pink which unfortunately doesn't look to be available right now!

Lancome Juicy Tubes Ultra Shiny Lip Gloss - $18. This gloss comes in so many different colors which is why it's one of my favorites. I prefer the pink shades, but you can choose from nudes, corals, reds and fuschias! It is a bit sticky but I don't mind because it stays on for awhile and leaves your lips looking super shiny. It's perfect for a night out.

Benefit Cosmetics Ultra Plush Lip Gloss 'Dandelion' - $16. I received a deluxe size sample of this gloss from Sephora as a VIB insider reward, and I fell in love! Plush really is the best word to describe this gloss - it moisturizes while adding just a touch of pearly pink color. It's not at all sticky and makes my lips feel velvety and soft. Best of all, it smells fantastic! It's a great every day gloss.

bottom row:
Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer - $29.50.  This gloss is as close to perfect as you can get. Chanel is always coming out with new shades, but my favorite shade right now is 'Amour' which is a perfect mix of pink and coral with just the right amount of shimmer. It's not sticky, lasts for hours and moisturizes well. I will continue to buy this gloss in many shades for years to come!

Stila Silk Shimmer Gloss in 'Kitten' - $22. I bought this gloss a few months ago and have been receiving so many compliments when I wear it. It's the perfect shimmering pale pink shade that goes with everything, and it moisturizes without being too sticky. Best of all, it smells like vanilla cake which makes it super addicting!
