My Lip Gloss Haul -- The Verdict!!!

After noticing how many views my lip gloss haul post got, I have finally come to a decision. To be honest, I managed to snag (one more) Bonne Bell Smackers Roll-On Shiner. I have tried the Dasani roll on lip gloss and I did not like it at all. The formula isn't thick enough for my liking, and when it dries it makes my lips feel a bit stiff. The Neutrogena hydragel didn't cut it either. The tingles feel nice, but it requires a lot of re-applying. It also doesn't make my lips feel soft and supple when it's on or even when it dries. The Pacifca lip quench was good. It made my lips feel soft and kissable.....however it leaves a white tint on my lips and I hate any color on my lips what so ever. If it didn't have any color, I would definitely repurchase. Urban Decay's lip love is great. I love the feeling and the smell and would buy it over and over again. The Sephora lip balm was a never again!! No shine, no smooth feeling, no nothing!!! It may have cost $5 but that's $5 I can keep, and contribute to a better lip gloss. The Aquafina lip oil was, eh.....just eh whatever. It's neither here nor there. 

One that was not on the list was Bonne Bell Liquid Lip Smackers. Yes, I know I'm 26. And I know lip smackers are geared towards young teen and pre-teen girls, even girls in grade school. But I just can't let them go. I have tried a million lip glosses over the years, and Bonne Bell just gets it. The formula is dead on, it makes my lips look and feel amazing. I recently tried the Skittles flavored liquid lip smackers and loved it. It was a bit sticky and didn't have as much glide as the smackers roll on shiner. But it's a good runner up. I bought a pack of 5 from my local Target for $9.29. They have them in abundance, so I don't have to worry about ordering online or not being able to find them.

Another gloss I'm fond of is Cover Girl Wet Slicks (clear). You can find them at any local drug store. I got mine from CVS for $6.99, I also like CG Wet Slicks Fruit Spritzers. My cousin gave me a raspberry flavored one and I fell in love with it. They can also be purchased at your local drug store. 

So the rulings go as follows:

Neutrogena Moisture Shine Lip Soother Cooler Hydragel - 3 stars
Urban Decay Honey Infused Lip Therapy - 4.5 stars
Aquafina Hydrating Lip Oil - 2.5 stars
Dasani Roll On Lip Gloss - 2.5 stars
Sephora Super Nourishing Lip Balm - 1 star
Pacifica Coconut Pearls Luminizing Lip Quench - - 4 stars
Liquid Lip Smackers - 4.5 stars
Cover Girl Wet Slicks - 4.5 stars
CG Wet Slicks Fruit Spritzers - 4.5 stars
