Eight Reasons We'll Always Be On Team Lipstick

As usual, our office engaged in a pretty heated debate this week. Well, let's call it more of a "spirited discussion"—about lip gloss. You see, most of us have grown out of that phase and are all about lipstick (or stain) these days. As everybody shared their reasoning, a common thread emerged. It seems the biggest problem with lip gloss was that your hair always gets stuck in it. Gross. You'll never have to worry about that with lipstick. Problem solved.

"My hair doesn't get stuck in it." - Laura Morgan, Entertainment Director

"I hate the feeling of hair getting caught in sticky lipgloss. Even with the most moist lipstick, that never seems to happen. A bright lipstick, like this perfect red orange, makes me feel instantly more polished." - Karen Wilson, Senior Digital Producer

"Unless you like eating hair, it's always better to have matte lips on a windy day." - Alison Syrett Cleary, Digital Writer

"I hate when my hair gets stuck in my lip gloss and becomes a gooey mess! Opting for a matte lipstick eliminates this problem. I love Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance works great—I love the foxy shade!" - Amanda Letchko, Fashion Assistant

"My iPhone holds a mix of music from Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus and Aly & AJ (feel free to judge), so it seems weird that I'd be so anti-lip gloss—but I am. There's just something about it that feels so teenybopper to me, and not in a good way. Not only does it attract errant hairs like flypaper, but its extreme shine factor feels dated and far too girls-night-out-y for everyday wear. Lest I point out the fact that Taylor Swift (yep, also on heavy rotation in my earbuds) has switched from lip gloss to lipstick in recent years? Case closed." - Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor

"Lip gloss is like a magnet for hair. The tiniest breeze and BOOM. It's the most annoying thing ever!" - Sarah Ferguson, Assistant Digital Producer

"Simply put, lip gloss is too sticky. If it's windy your hair gets stuck in it. It's just not good." - Hillary McDaniels, Digital Production Assistant

"I'm so pro-lipstick—it typically lasts longer, has bolder pigment, and just looks cooler. Nars Heat Wave forever!" - Maura Lynch, Senior Beauty Editor
