How do you like your lip gloss in a squeezie tube or a tube with a wand?

Please discuss why.

And what colors do you like?

I prefer to use a brush some wands have them or I use my own retractable lip brush.

Colors reds tend to look best on my skin tone, blue reds not orange based, but some pinks and corals and peach.

Why, that is the application I have used for decades. Very Happy

I don't care for squeeze tubes, the application can get too messy.

I usually choose cool colors, they look best on me.

The squeezie tube due to it being a little more hygienic.
My rationale is that I can squeeze out an excess amount, dot it on (trying my best not to touch the actual applicator), and then let the excess slurp back into the tube! And then I smack my lips or use my finger or another applicator to spread.

With the wand, so much is exposed to air each time its pumped, and sponges kind of gross me out.
I can be a little bit of a germaphobe... don't even get me started. Smile

Re color, I find that if you apply over pigmented lips, or a lipstick or pencil, coloured glosses can change dramatically, so I have no real preference... although nudes often give a lovely sheen.

Squeezie tube for hygiene. I like Berry shades.

I like tube with wand -- I never purchase the squeezie types - too messy and goopy.

As for people saying squeezie tubes are more hygienic, I understand your concerns as I too am a germaphobe Laughing but I've never had any sort of infection or otherwise from using a wand tube in the last 2-3 decades. I just throw a lip gloss out if the consistency changes or it gets a weird smell - which is rare as I use them up so quickly Wink

I prefer a wand. With a squeeze tube I tend to use too much product.

I prefer the twist lip glosses like Stilla makes. You can twist as much or little lip gloss as you want to apply. I find this is the smartest way to apply. This way you are are not dipping your bacteria constantly back into your lipgloss contaminating the entire lipgloss and you also get a wand so it's not as messy as the tube (because we all know when the tube gets low, you are trying to squeeze the last bit of it out and this can get frustrating and messy like how you would with the last bit of your toothpaste). The worst option would be dipping your dirty fingers into a pot and then applying the lipgloss on your lips. I find this gross and messy on the fingers.

I do make my own quite often and have twist up applicators with both sponge heads (little holes in them) and brush tip, I much prefer either to any squeeze tubes!

Interesting discussion. I never thought about it. I just buy the colors I like, whether in a tube or with a wand. As far as hygiene, I guess tubes because I can wipe the tip. But a wand is probably as hygienic as a tube of lipstick (unless you spray/wipe it with alcohol after each use).

I see people apply straight with the tip of the tube, that has to allow germs in especially with repeated use even if wiped off?

I never sweated it, I never share except with my own daughters! Smile

I suppose you're right Smile I don't sweat it either as i don't share my makeup. But I will wash with soap or disinfect if I used it just before coming down with a cold or flu Smile
