Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 oz.) is like a lacquer for your lips–richly pigmented, high-shine, and long-wearing (as they are tacky).  There are both cream (shimmer-free) and metallic versions, which makes it a nice, well-rounded line-up.  Some of my favorite shades are:  Iced Out, Rose B4 Bros, Mauve Squad, and Foiled Brat.

Anastasia Lip Gloss

Anastasia Lipgloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “opaque” with “high-shine” that’s “non-drying.” It is one of the more pigmented lipglosses out there that has a smoother, more cushion-y consistency that typically spreads well across the lips. My experience from wearing the formula is that they are often lightly to moderately hydrating and wear three to five hours. Check out our list of the top 15 Anastasia Lipglosses, plus here are of my favorite shades are: Weekend Barbie, Purple Rain, Orchid, and Warm Bronze.

Tom Ford Beauty Patent Finish Lip Color

View Swatches

Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) feels lightweight, almost watery, when initially applied but thickens and feels more like a moderately tacky gel after thirty to forty seconds. It had great staying power with the glossiness lasting for six hours and the color itself still going strong eight to ten hours later.  The coverage was nearly opaque but has that slight translucency that you would expect to see in a lip stain. Some of my favorite shades are: Infamy and Red Corset.

Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge

View Swatches

Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) smooth, lightweight consistency that feels like a watery cream when initially applied, but it develops into a lighter weight gel texture after a few minutes. Most of the shades have medium or greater coverage, long-wearing, high-shine, and are hydrating while worn. They look more like a stain than they actually behave like one, as I only found the darkest shades to leave behind any trace of color after it had worn away. Some of my favorite shades are: Mepicka Red, Chenille, and Bugatti Red.

NARS Velvet Lip Glide

NARS Velvet Lip Glide ($26.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a hybrid between lipstick and lipgloss that is hydrating, richly pigmented, and comfortable to wear. They have stronger color payoff, a non-tacky consistency, and a smoothness to their consistency that is a lot like a good lipstick, while they have a plusher, thicker texture that gives lips a plumper, fuller look along with a glossy sheen that is more like a gloss. Some of my favorite shades are: Unspeakable, La Maine Bleue, and Bound.

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer

View Swatches

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($8.99 for 0.20 fl. oz.) has a creamy consistency to it that is a little gel-like, and though it doesn’t feel heavy, it is a thicker consistency. There’s a light tackiness to it initially, which I find develops to a noticeable tackiness after a couple of hours–if you don’t like thicker, tackier glosses, I don’t know that these are for you. If you like bolder, more pigmented glosses, you’ll find some real winners in this range! Some of my favorite shades are: HD Rose Quartz, HD Citrine, HD Pink Ruby, and HD Sunstone.

Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.12 oz.) is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and mostly non-sticky. Despite having a smoother, mostly non-sticky feel, the formula has decent wear time (three to five hours) and is hydrating. The range varies a lot with respect to pigmentation–some are very sheer, others are more opaque! Some of my favorite shades are: Fresh Peach, Pomegranate Delight, Deep Rose, and Nude Alert.

Surratt Beauty Lip Lustre ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is is a light-medium thick, tacky gloss that feels very smooth going on and holds on well, even when the coverage is on the sheerer side. This gloss lasted for four hours and was somewhat hydrating while worn. I like the more shimmery shades in the range, which have great shine and sparkle. Soigne is one of my favorites from the shades I’ve tried.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain

View Swatches

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain< ($36.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to have the “texture and shine of a gloss” with the “long wear of a stain.” I’ve long been a fan of the Glossy Stain formula for a long-wearing gloss with (often) good pigmentation. The formula has a thinner, more watery feel initially but thickens as it “develops” on the lips. Some of my favorite shades are: Corail Aquatique and Rouge Gouache.
