8 Surprisingly Easy SFX Makeup Tricks to Try For Halloween

Gooey Glosses Galore!

There truly is a lip gloss for everyone. You have your creamy glosses with a lipstick-like texture and more opaque coverage, your balmy glosses, which help to heal chapped lips, and then you have many, many other lip glosses that are just downright gooey.

The gooey glosses usually have the most shine and some of the sweetest smells, but conversely, you are also wearing a sticky substance on your lips that is likely to attract everything from hair to dust! I'd love to hear your opinions on gooey glosses and why you like or dislike them. Here are a few products that are new to the gooey-gloss market.

Kiehl's Lip Gloss ($13.50) is a sheer lip gloss made from natural extracts such as grape seed, rose hip, and mango to help condition dry lips. My favorite color is called "Icy Everest," a mauve that gives you a pale pout with a whole lotta shine! Available in eight shades.

For two more ooey, gooey lip glosses,

Lancome Juicy Tubes Smoothie Lip Gloss ($17.50) has just about the sweetest smell and flavor to it that I've ever experienced. The shimmery gloss also glides on easily since the tip is angled and allows you to spread it out evenly. Available in 21 shades.

Boots No7 Lip Glace Candy Gloss ($9.99) has a sweet sugary flavor to it. These glosses are high shine and are hypo-allergenic. Each of the six shades have cute candy names too, such as lollipop, bon bon, and cherry drop. Yummy!

Vixen, I love that Philosophy gloss too! But the best gooey lip gloss for me has to be Urban Decay XXX Shine. It lasts forever and is minty. I have been using it for five years and it's still my favorite.

I like balmy glosses better. Gooey ones are pretty though. If there's no wind, they're fine :)

The only ones I simply cannot tolerate are Bobby Brown lip glosses, they are so sticky and gooey, you'll have everything from dust to your own hair to bird feathers stuck to your lips in under five minutes. Hate, hate, hate the texture. But other shiny glosses are great, if they have a thinner or at least less-sticky texture. I always tap the lip gloss wand to something else...if it doesn't stick, great, if you literally have to pull them apart, forget it.

Kiss by Philosophy is one of the BEST lip balm/gloss out there. seriously, i'm surprised no one really recognizes it but its worked for me for the past 3 years and i'm not willing to let go any time soon ~ not that i have reason to.. and it costs less than the kiehl's one :)

I love Juicy Tubes! I think they're pretty gooey. But, they do last longer than the non-gooey types. And they smell so good! :D

I get conflicted!! Gooey ones last longer nut have that hair sticky factor, and the smoother ones don't make your hair stick but have to be reapplied waaay more!! I have some of each.

Do not wear a gooey lip gloss on a windy day. Everything sticks. I prefer lip gloss that is more balm-ish.

I like the gooey glosses because they're so shiny, but I always manage to get my hair stuck to my lips (my boyfriend doesn't like them either). I like the balmy ones because they're sheer and moisturize (plus the bf doesn't complain).

i actually prefer gooey glosses...i just love how shiny they are, and it's an added bonus when they have different flavors. yes, they are sometimes a little too sticky, but i still love them the most!

I don't like the hair sticking to the gooey glosses so I prefer not to use them. Other than that I really do like them.

I'm usually prefer something simpler than a "gooey" one. Mostly because my hair always finds it's way into it about two seconds after walking outside!
