the lipstick vs lipgloss ? got me to thinking..

is there a correlation between those who prefer lipstick to lipgloss and their ages? without knowing, i'd say older, mature women prefer lipstick, as opposed to younger women preferring lipgloss. would i be correct, or no?

  • Good question. My GF works at Estee Lauder, she said that women over 35 or so are the ones who buy lipstick, the younger ones go for the glosses. I'm 40, and if I wear anything it's a light gloss.

  • I am almost 40 and I love lip-gloss and always have never been much for lipstick.

  • It's possible. Maybe younger women feel that gloss is sexier. Not sure.

  • Sounds right...I'm 25 and prefer lipgloss b/c I dont like the way lipstick wears...

  • I dont know...I mean I am 35 and I barely wear lipstick at all...I may put some on if going out on a night on the town but never take any with me to reapply. I always just reapply with lip gloss.

  • Well, I usually put on lipstick, then a light coat of lipgloss over it. I'm 25, so I guess I'm fairly in the middle. :)
