Lip Gloss Lament

As you know, I love lip gloss, but the addiction is also the source of one of my biggest pet peeves: leaky lip-gloss caps. This is a vexing problem that plagues one of my favorite products: the shimmery nude NARS Lip Gloss in Sandpiper, which is available for $23 here. No matter how much I wipe off the excess lip gloss before applying it, a little bit of it always oozes out when I put the cap back on, turning the tube into a smeary mess. Back in my make-up bag, the lip gloss ends up getting pink sparkly goo all over everything.

But really, when I'm paying more than $20 for a tiny tube of lip gloss, it is too much to ask for a cap that doesn't leak? It's so much trouble to contain the mess I'm considering ditching the gloss, but I love the color oh so much! Do you guys have this problem? If so, share your own lip-gloss gripes below.
