Default Excellent, relatively inexpensive lip gloss

I went to Target to get brushes and ended up with this gem, Boots Botanics Lip Gloss in Loganberry:

It looks fabulous. Like some of my MAC lustreglasses.

Loganberry is not very sheer at all. Two applications gives an almost lipstck look. I like it because it looks nice on me and I do not have to use a lot. It also seems to last a long time on me.

Is it a real sticky lipgloss? I love the look of glosses, but not the sticky feel of some of them...

Not sticky at all for me!

I usually buy MAC Lustreglass which is not supersticky (unlike the lipglasses). It feels like a cross between lip balm or lipstick with the appearance of a cross between lip gloss and sheer lipstick.

I'm not sure what your budget is, but I absolutely LOVE stila lip glaze and they have a great gift set out right now that'd be more than appropriate for a teenager: http://www.stilacosmetics.com/produc...pos=1&viewall=

It's $15 to $20.

ETA: Never mind. What my mom read off to me were more than likely note scratchings because my mom could barely make out legible words. She was able to make out definite wishes; a gift card to WalMart or Old Navy.

There was a bunch of other gobbled y gook written. One word looked like jokes. Another looked like car. She even had her son's name written. All per mom who wears reading glasses & probably didn't have them on at the time.

ETA: Dear mom said another word looked like feet.
