"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
