Question
Does this gloss leave white residue?
Some lip glosses leave a weird, gross white residue in the corners of your lips after about an hour... does this lip gloss do that?

Question about applicator and shades
Im interested in the Girl Next Door one. Is the applicator a brush or is it a sponge tip?

Also, what is the color like? Would it suit very pale skin? Thanks

The applicator is a doe-foot. I like this kind because it allows for very consistant application over the whole lip. I too have fair skin and the girl next door looks very natural. I'd say it's about one shade brighter than my natural lip and a bit shinier. I hope this helps.

It is a sponge applicator. I am VERY fair, and I thought the color was a little too bright, deff consider a shade lighter. I think it'll look better in the summer when I have a little tan on. What is nice, is because it is so bright, you only need a little bit.

It's a brush...a nice one and the Girl Next Door color is a pale pink, perfect for fair skin. I've also purchased Daddy's Girl which has a bit more of a pink pop to it.

It's a sponge tip and the color is great for fair skin( I'm very fair) Just stay away from coral type colors( those don't look good with my complextion anyways) Stay with pink...nice for spring/summer.

Hi,

Although they're all supposed to be strawberry-banana, of the two I have, the banana isn't obvious on one (and it's awesome exactly the way it ended up) and the other one is difficult to tell, but also awesome, too. I highly recommend these. (They're also relatively long lasting for a gloss and leave my lips feeling great, even after the gloss is gone).

Hope this helps.

They all have the same scent: strawberry-banana. Of the ones you asked about, I have Daddy's Girl and it's a nice sheer pink, perfect for any skin tone. The lip glosses are really moisturizing.

Question
Does anyone know if the gloss applicator is a brush or a solid?
I don't like the brushes b/c they are hard to apply. Would much prefer the solid one that just rolls over your lips. If anyone is able to tell me what type of applicator this comes with I would appreciate it!

I think that it's color specific unfortunately. I've ordered some that have come with the brush, and some have come with the solid stick.

I got it in Daddy's Girl and it has a doe foot applicator, so I think it just depends how old it is.

The newer shades have the doe foot applicator, while the older ones have the brush. So which one you get is color dependent - I have dream girl, material girl, and pin-up girl and they all have the doe foot while my daddy's girl has a brush.

After awhile mine began to separate in the container, but that was after 6 months. I threw it out after it did that. Maybe yours was an older one? If it ever changes consistency, color or smell it's a good indication to flip it.

Question
kiss proof lip gloss?
Hello, ladies! I'm trying to find lip glosses that are kiss-proof and non-sticky. So, does this lip gloss stay on well during kissing? And is it highly pigmented and non-sticky? Lastly, would you recommend this gloss over a lot of the others? Thanks!!

Definitely non-sticky. More of a creamy-balmy texture when applied. Mine is a creamy color, though, not one of the "slick" colors. Kinda of a strawberry-banana smoothie flavor that is fine for kissing, but I think it rubs off fairly easily, so I hope she/he likes to wear your shade, too. I highly recommend this product, regardless. I have very easily-chapped lips, and this is my go-to lipgloss for casual daywear; very moisturizing and great sheer, flattering color payoff.
