Win a Set of Juicy Tubes Chic Delights Lip Gloss!

Lipstick may have dominated the runways at fashion week, but gloss remains a perennial favorite. One of the biggest launches in the past decade is Lancôme's Juicy Tubes. Eleven of the cult-classic lip glosses are sold around the world every minute. Who knew one gloss could be so popular?

Mollie Winerock of Lancôme shared a few details about how the glosses are developed — plus, just in time for the holidays, Juicy Tubes Chic Delights, we're giving away a set of eight glosses. For a quick Q&A and the scoop on entering the giveaway,


Gloss is usually considered a young woman’s cosmetic, but can women of all ages wear it? Any tips for those of us who remember the Reagan administration and beyond?
Women of all ages can certainly wear gloss. Juicy Tubes can be applied over lipstick or alone for a more natural look. Your lips can appear thinner as you age, and gloss helps to add volume so they appear fuller.

How far in advance does the Lancôme team come up with its color trends?
We are always working over a year in advance. We attend trend and color presentations, and we're always aware of what is going on in the fashion industry and what’s happening on the runways.

What kinds of things influence the color choices?
My inspiration comes from so many different places. I am always inspired by the changing of seasons. Spring shades are inspired by light colors and textures while holiday shades and themes come from moods I might be in or places I have recently visited. I live in New York City, so I am lucky to always be inspired by the interesting people around me. I’m a Juicy Tubes fanatic, so I create shades and designs of things I would love to wear and have in my purse.

What’s your favorite versatile color that seems to look good on anyone?
Shades that look the best on anyone typically are neutral tones with a light shimmer. I would recommend Spring Fling or our clear Juicy Tube Pure. Pure is a great shade because you can wear it alone or over your favorite lipstick to add shine and luster.

I am absolutely addicted to lip gloss and have been for many years. In college I was particularly obsessed with cranberry body shop lip gloss. I was recently going through my old winter wear and found 6 half finished pots of cranberry lip gloss! I have since branched out, but you can usually find a juicy tube in every purse or pocket of mine!

I love these glosses, but my puppy loves them more! Don't leave them lying around or your puppy may have very glossy lips and tongue.

I'm a self-proclaimed lip-gloss addict--I have at least 40 or so, with an additional stash for my car and purse. With all these glosses, though, one of my favs is actually one of the cheapest--a yummy red Bonne Bell VitaGloss that I got on sale at CVS that lasts and lasts.

I love lip glosses and I always have 5 or six in my handbag/car/desk at any given time. I stick to a few different companies, but I'm game to try any. One particularly busy day, I finished lunch and grabbed some gloss to slick on before I went back to work without paying too much attention. When I met up with coworkers they gave me a funny look, but didn't say anything. Eventually someone was brave enough to pull me aside and tell me to check my lips. I had accidently grabbed a very dark lip stain instead of a gloss that comes in an alomst identical container. Not to mention since I hadn't paid attention to application, The stain was uneven, leaving some of my lips the normal color and the rest super dark. I looked like a mental patient and I had to scrub the stain off until it looked normal, added a teensy bit more to fill in the non-stained parts and put a few layers of neutral gloss on. I always double check now!

My frist lip gloss like most was bonnie bell and it tasted so good i kept eating it off. I love a good gloss esp. in the winter when my lips are usually chapped so don't look good in a matte lipstick

My favorite lipgloss as a teen was in this bright shiny pink color. I used to wear it allll the time and loved it most cause it was minty. I would have my mom get a few tubes of it for me each year as a stocking stuffer for Christmas because I loved it so much. Now, I doubt I would even wear it. A tad on the bright side for me!

This isn't much of a story. It's more a cautionary tale. Not long after using a really beautiful lip gloss (Color Fever Gloss in Heatstroke)these tiny little bumps appeared all over my lips. I freaked out and had no idea what was going on, but stopped using anything on my lips until it cleared up. I didn't want to contaminate anything, in case it was contagious. It happened a second time and I went to the doctor. He asked if I had been using a specific lip gloss or lipstick because I was having an allergic reaction. Throwing away that gloss was so distressing because it really was fabulous stuff!

Hmmm, my fav story comes from an experience that I had with a mac lipglass called dazzleglass. A comment made by a friend (dazzleglasses makes u look like a bimbo) spurred a revolution that brought together 5 women from all over the US. After all, if dazzleglass makes us all look like bimbos, so be it!

When I was in elementary school, the first lip glosses I tried were the cute Bonne Bell stuff. I used to peruse their colorful makeup section so intensely whenever I tagged along with my mom to Walmart or a drugstore or something. My absolute favorite was the one where you slid your finger up the side of the tube to flip open the gloss at the top - it was like the standard of cool! hahaha. I had that in probably five different colors and would ALWAYS make sure to put some on whenever I thought I was going to run into this boy that I had a hugee crush on :) I'm 20 now and still a huge lip gloss junkie - my favorite lip gloss on earth is Clinique's superbalm moisturizing gloss, it's amazing!!! - and I still like to check out the Bonne Bell aisle every once in a while. Good times :)

Lip gloss was my very first beauty product which I received from my mom. If it hadn't been for lip gloss I would have never discovered makeup or have a passion for any beauty products. Since then I've been hooked! It's worry free too! Cause you don't have to check if it got on your teeth!

My favorite lipgloss story is the time my little kitty licked off my lipgloss!I was wearing CO Bigelow's Strawberry Sundae Lipshine when I nuzzled my cat's nose. He perked up and started sniffing my face--and licked my gloss!! This should be a selling point for CO Bigelow--"So yummy even your furry friend will like it"!

I had a huge crush on this boy the summer before my senior year and I was putting on some chapstick/gloss and he said to me "Can I have some?" and when I went to hand him the tube he kissed me instead! Oh so smooth for a 19 year old boy... :)

I remember my first addiction to lip gloss. I was in 6th grade and I had almost the complete collection of lip smackers flavored lip gloss. I used to love tasting them so I'd reapply every half hour in class!

I broke my back for years seeking the perfect tinted lip balm. I tried them ALL - from department store to drugstore, Saks to CVS. My little sister (bless her!) finally introduced me to Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil. OK, so it's not a "gloss" per se, but I apply this stuff several times a day and never get sick of the "bitten" stain on soft, cushiony lips that it leaves behind. And all for just $2.99!

My favorite lip gloss story is actually a phase that I went through when I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue. I tried on a different brand/flavor everyday to see what I liked and didn't like. It was so much fun, and winning this set would let me play some more!

This isn't a story so much as an example of my lip gloss fetish: I never have fewer then 4 lip glosses in my purse at any given time. When I was a freshman in college and taking that college 101 course they make everyone take, we had to bring in something to represent ourselves and I brought in my bucket of lip glosses. I got quite a few odd looks that day. :)

Hmm, don't have a lip gloss story yet - I guess my story can be about when I win this juicy tubes set!! :) :) I want them BAD!

I remember in high school there was a big thing with those flavored lip glosses. I used to buy those Bonne Bell lip glosses. Loved that they gave some color and shine, but also helped moisturize as well. Those were my first lip glosses. These would be a serious upgrade that i'd love to have! =)

I actually quit using lip gloss for a while. I had one tube get damaged some how and leak all on the inside of my purse. I was cleaning things off for hours. Then one of my friends had a lip plumping lip gloss that she made me try. Needless to say, I fell back in love with lip gloss. I love nude and neutral shades... plumping... non-plumping... with a hint of glitter or without... it doesn't matter. Oh, but Cover Girl's new lip gloss with the hint of Scope is pretty neat!
