For example Maybelline New York now has the elixir color sensational gloss that is as opaque as a lipstick but with the shine of a gloss and supposedly a really fantastic staying power. The two I own are in Caramel infusion which is a nude and Fuchsia flourish which is a hot pink.
Doe foot applicator
Floral taste and smell - yuck
Leaves your lips stained this color after the gloss has gone
The gloss is not sticky it's slick
Revlon now has Colorburst lip butter. Same idea supposedly extremely pigmented, long-lasting but more comfortable than a lipstick. This is a red velvet on the left and sweet tart on the right.
No weird taste or smell
Regular lipstick style application
Lots of colors
Color payoff is just okay
Very moisturizing not sticky or slick
Not a lot of lasting power
Another drugstore company that honestly does have some serious gems even though some of it's other products may not be my favorite, Milani. Milani has something similar to the two is a power lift lasting and moisturizing stain gloss. From left to right red control, macaroon and mango tango.
Click pen applicator
Top of the applicator is actually a brush
Super thick pigmented formula
Way cheaper than anybody else
Amazing lasting power
Stains lips the color
The formula does spread and a lip liner is absolutely necessary
The formula upon first application is not easily spreadable with body heat it slides around more
Just for the record I don't dislike lipstick but it's really not my favorite usually I pick something that has more of a lasting finish so doesn't end up all over my face because I really hate messing with lipliner and having to take two products with me just for lips.
