Wouldn’t it be wonderful to wake up one sunny morning to the encouraging clatter of colorful songbirds and cartoon forest critters like in Disney’s Snow White? The bunnies would make breakfast while fluttering finches helped you put on your dress. And before you left the house, a very official-looking chipmunk with a clipboard and tiny glasses on the end of his nose would stand at your feet, examine your ensemble and say, “Needs more color!”


Question: Does your current lipgloss stash leave you uninspired?

Today’s gargantuan giveaway may not come with animated forest friends, but it does have all the fixin’s for a complete lip color makeover. Let these Avon Glazewear Lipglosses help you with your summertime looks.


(Winners randomly selected)

The entire set of sixteen (16) Avon Glazewear Lipglosses in various shades of pink, mauve, gold, brown, clear, red and plum. Prizes valued at $96 each (25 winners).

These glosses get raves for their non-sticky texture and the wide range of colors and finishes throughout the set.


To enter the Avon Glazewear Lipgloss giveaway, just answer the following question in the comments:

“When did you start wearing lipgloss?”

My answer: I didn’t really start wearing gloss until I got out of college in the late ’90s. During the first part of the decade, when I was in high school and college, lipstick was more popular, but no one I knew wore gloss! It wasn’t until about 1998 when I picked up my first tube of MAC Spite that gloss entered the picture. It was love at first sight and all downhill from there.


Please, one entry per person, and don’t forget to leave a valid email address in the comment form so I can reach you if you’ve won.

The giveaway is open to US readers only (per the company’s request).

I’ll choose the winners at random from the entries left in the comments by 11:59 p.m. PST on Saturday, June 5, 2010.

Good luck! And have a splendiferous day! πŸ™‚

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

  1. Hannah says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in Junior High. I’m pretty sure it was from Bath and Body Works, back when they were still making a good amount of makeup products.

  2. Jane says:

    I started wearing lipgloss upon entering high school. It was a sample sized clinique one from my mom’s stash of gwp =)

  3. Rengirl says:

    I started on my third year of college and it was the a clear, sparkly Lipglass from Mac. I got hooked on this stuff (and got others hooked on it too).

  4. Jules says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was 12. we weren’t allowed to wear makeup in school…but we got around that by wearing glosses! LOL! We thought we were so rebellious! πŸ˜€

  5. Katie says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in fifth grade and haven’t spent a day without since!

  6. Jenny says:

    i started wearing lipgloss back in high school! i was introduced to elf when it was a higher end brand sold at sephora!
    .-= Jenny’s last blog post… Zebra Stripes… =-.

  7. Amber says:

    Holy smokes, that’s a crazy giveaway. My first serious gloss (as in, not Bonne Bell) was a MAC lipglass in Lust, probably when I was 18 or so.
    .-= Amber’s last blog post… Citrus honey rosemary ice cream =-.

  8. Stephanie says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in middle school and was a devotee all through high school. In college I went pretty bare. If I did get dolled up lipstick was my top choice. Now, I’m back in love and hoarding lip glosses/glazes like it’s my job! Gotta love that natural glow!

  9. Rachel says:

    I started wearing gloss in highschool. Right along with my drivers license, I discovered the world of MAC glosses and became obssesed. Funny thing is….now I literally only own one MAC lipgloss because there are so many other brands I love more!

  10. milaxx says:

    I started wearing gloss in junior high so probably around 13.

  11. Caitlin says:

    I started wearing gloss in middle school. There was this one Lip Smackers gloss that was a sour lemon flavor – and I love me some sour stuff – so the second I put it on I’d lick it right off! And boy, was it painful when my lips were chapped and broken. OUCH!

  12. Kat says:

    I first wore lipgloss in the seventh grade when my parents went out of town on a business trip. The babysitter took me to Target and I was allowed to pick out some makeup. I looked like a clown for a week. I started wearing it regularly in high school/college.

  13. Michaela says:

    I think I started wearing it around the time Smackers was really popular…so maybe when I was in 6th grade.

  14. Kayann says:

    Well…first there was Bonnebell when I was in 5th grade! But my first “serious” lip gloss was in high school, my freshman year. I didn’t wear makeup until I was in high school…I was a little late!

  15. steph says:

    I didn’t start wearing lipgloss until my junior year of college. And I started out with the philosophy glosses, how cool is it that they are flavored? πŸ™‚

  16. iLyma says:

    I’ve always loved lipbalm, but I don’t think I started wearing lipgloss until 3 years ago? I got a free tube of MAC from my internship and now gloss is a must for whenever I am feeling remotely girly.

  17. Molly says:

    In 6th grade my best friend had a huge collection of Lipsmackers and Wet’n’Wild- we used to sit in her room singing (badly) along to Mariah Carey and trying them all on over and over. I still have such a soft spot for pink lemonade and Dr. Pepper Lipsmackers, and a pot of Wet’n’Wild strawberry gloss in my makeup bag!

  18. Lily says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in 6th grade, those bonnebell roll on flavored glosses! I remember it was watermelon flavor and delicious! lol
    .-= Lily’s last blog post… June! =-.

  19. Kizzy-online says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was around 15, I think. Lipgloss was easy to put on and it didn’t look that ‘made up’! Therefor very appropriate for my age at the time. Hihi!

    Recently I’ve stopped wearing lipgloss. I don’t know why…. Maybe I’m just fed up with the ones I have πŸ˜‰ Can’t wait to try these Avon ones!

  20. Danielle F. says:

    I first started wearing lipgloss in the7th grade in the form of bonnebell! It’s funny because to this day, the friends I still have from middle laugh about how much lipgloss I always had/have on my person at any given point in time….I can’t resist the shine and sparkle!!!

  21. Meghan says:

    i first started wearing lipgloss in high school. i would buy the smackers vanilla frosting lip gloss at the drug store because i loved the smell and taste! i wore that with this frosty vanilla eyeshadow…eeeeek!!!!

  22. Jane says:

    I started wearing lip gloss for piano recitals and competitions in my teens and then in high school. I wasn’t really into makeup then, so I would just use my mom’s gift samples. In college, I started wearing more makeup and finally bought my own!

  23. Chelsea says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I started high school. I would always lean towards the lipsmackers vanilla. I still use it every once in a while because I LOVE the taste of it.

    I have grown up though, I don’t like the shimmery-all over sparkle lipgloss anymore. I recently started using Clinique lipglosses and can’t get enough of them!

  24. Briana says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was about 11 or 12. I bought a lipsmackers gloss that smelled like a vanilla cupcake with frosting. It smelled soooo good! Other than that, i didnt really start wearing lipgloss alot until I was 15. I loved the Lipsmackers and NYC lip glosses because they were affordable, smelled great, and I didn’t look too made up.

  25. Dee Dee says:

    I started wearing lipgloss really young …. like 5 years old. I was iin a lot of pagents from 0-11 years old.

  26. Kaylee D says:

    I wore cute, kiddie Smackers lip glosses when I was seven! I got into more high-quality lip glosses (and makeup in general) when I was sixteen.

  27. Valentine says:

    I started wearing lip glosses and tinted balms back in sixth grade, accumulating quite the collection through middle school. I’ve always just loved makeup and am obsessive about never having bare lips (clear balm at the very least) especially.

  28. Jamie Lynn Palmer says:

    I started wearing lipgloss before I started wearing true makeup. I liked that it kept my lips moist throughout the day without the “made up” look, I was a total tom boy!

  29. chibu74 says:

    I started wearing l/g from last year onwards. I always used to think l/g are only shimmery and would make me look like a disco ball, but after seeing YT vids and blogs from gurus like you and other, I came to know more about l/g and gradually learnt what kind of l/g would make me look good.

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  30. Carolanne says:

    I remember wearing Smackers lip gloss in junior high on days when I wanted to look extra special, haha.

  31. Lisa says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in 7th grade. I’m sure it was something scary like Bonne Bell. . .lol!

  32. sue says:

    hmmm… i think I was in middle school… it was really light pink, barely visible…and it made me feel super grown up! πŸ™‚

  33. Erica B. says:

    I came out of the womb wearing lipgloss…LOL!
    .-= Erica B.’s last blog post… Weekend Recap…(Memorial Day Edition) =-.

  34. DeAnna says:

    I have worn lipgloss since I was about 14 years old (so for 16 years i have been). I didn’t start wearing it daily until last year. It had been just chapstick unless I would be going out for dinner or something then I’d put on some gloss. Now…I wear it every day – and feel naked w/out gloss or even lipstick (the few occasions that I wear that…).

  35. Emily says:

    I think the first time I wore lip gloss was when I went to my first school dance at age 11. My older sister, who was a Mary Kay Saleslady at the time had given me some to share with my sister. To be honest, I think we still have the tube!

  36. Tammie Garcia says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in Junior High – In the 80’s baby. You know it was the bonnie bell stuff – barely visible. I loved that stuff.

  37. Aimee says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in 8th grade. It’s always been Clinique glossear in Juicy Apple. Its not sparkly and shows up beautifully on my lips!

  38. Audrey says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in jr. high. They were little clear tubes that had a roll on ball for application. I loved them because they came in different flavors and were very sweet πŸ™‚
    .-= Audrey’s last blog post… =-.

  39. Katrina says:

    I think I was in 6th grade. And I think it was good ol wet n wild.

  40. Jennifer says:

    I started wearing lip gloss towards the end of college. It was the lip gloss and I was hooked! I wanted to try more shades and brands and my love for the gloss has not faded. I have heard a lot of good things about Glazewear. Thanks for the chance to participate! πŸ™‚

  41. Julbra says:

    probably around 5th grade, my first tube was Urban Decay
    .-= Julbra’s last blog post… My Holy Grail Products–a Poll from Temptalia =-.

  42. Beth S. says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was in 8th grade. My mom took me to Clinique and they helped me pick out a color for me to wear to my 8th grade social. I think I put it on 30 times that night…I thought I was so cool to have makeup in my purse!

  43. Carleen says:

    I didn’t start wearing until my mid 20’s. I tried before and didn’t like the feel but now I love them.

  44. Stacey says:

    Great giveaway!! I’ve been wearing lipgloss since high school and am so addicted to it! πŸ™‚

    smhooper08 at gmail dot com

  45. Joanne says:

    I’m more of a lip balm wearer and got into lip gloss a couple of years ago in college. I remember when the Stila pen-style lip glaze became popular and bought one at Sephora!

  46. Shannon says:

    I just recently started getting into makeup and am still lacking in the lipgloss department – I typically put on some lipstick in the morning, which then promptly wears off as soon as I drink coffee. This collection would be an amazing way to start wearing lipgloss though.

  47. Nicole says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in high school, though it was just plain ole boring clear lip gloss. It wasn’t until college when i branched out to light pinks and neutrals. Then last year I started to get a little more daring with color… Mac’s superglass was a big step for me because of the huge chunks of glitter!

  48. Erica says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in middle school. Actually I remember one of my colors being an Avon frosty purple color…lol only when you’re 12. πŸ™‚

  49. paige says:

    I started wearing lipgloss really early for playing “makeup artist” with the little kid stuff, but not in public with the real stuff until I was about 18. And I haven’t stopped yet. Thanks for the great6 opportunity.

  50. Shannon Ikerd says:

    That all depends . . . . do Bonnie Bell Lip Smakers count? I was eating . . . I mean . . .er, wearing those in grade school.

    I was wearing more grown up lip gloss in high school. πŸ˜‰

  51. Ashley says:

    Ahaha my lip gloss wearing/eating/collecting started when I was 11! That’s when I found out about Caboodles… loved that stuff!

  52. Rachel says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in 5th grade. It was probably Bonnebelle at first then during high school it was CoverGirl and the stuff they sell at Bath and Body works. Now my favorite is NARS Dolce Vita. Hope to try the Avon glosses soon!

  53. Sandy says:

    This will really date me, but I started wearing lip gloss when I was about 13. Bonne Bell’s Lip Smackers were brand new!! I wore something fruity-flavored (for the life of me, can’t think of the name of it) and thought I was just the coolest girl in the world!

    I think I’d enjoy these Glazewears just as much, though. I have a bunch of them that really need to be retired (a few from Avon’s Bronze Goddess phase a few years ago) and would love these to wear and share.

  54. Jay says:

    I started wearing lipgloss after I saw my friend’s nude lips looking very pretty and glossy. She told me she was using Mac C-Thru. In fact, that’s my first lipgloss and Mac product that I bought. And that was back in 2002, before then I wasn’t into makeup.

  55. gwen says:

    My first lipgloss is cover girl in my early 20’s

  56. Angie says:

    When I was nine, I used my birthday money to buy lilac lipgloss (with matching glittery shadow) from Old Navy. I can’t imagine how bad it looked! haha!

  57. KyaLyn says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I started working after college. I had money to burn and was just starting to get into make up. MAC Dreamy is still part of my stash.

  58. athenacalled says:

    I first wore lipgloss to my senior prom – a friend did my makeup and told me that applying a basecoat of lipstick with a top layer of gloss would make it prettier, tone down the color intensity a bit, and would last longer. I used that tip for the next few years…

  59. Sarah says:

    I got a pink lipgloss as part of a free gift from, clinique, maybe? when i was in ninth grade. I never wore more than a slick of mascara and some foundation in high school, and it was a pretty, neutral color that worked well with a mostly bare face.

  60. Jennifer says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was in high school, my cousin had given me a set of lipglosses for christmas and I loved them.

  61. Debbie says:

    I think I started wearing lip gloss in 5th grade – although then it was more playing around then wearing it everyday!

  62. snoopysteph says:

    I first started wearing lipgloss in 7th grade after I begged my mom. She took me down to the local Clinique counter and I purchased an Almost Lipstick in Fruit Punch (it’s more of a sheer lipgloss than lipstick). I can probably count on one hand how many times I’ve ever worn lipstick – I’m definitely a lipgloss girl all the way!
    .-= snoopysteph’s last blog post… 2 Years Old! =-.

  63. Stephanie says:

    While I don’t wear it everyday, if I wear lipstick, i have to top it off with gloss. Lipstick without lipgloss is like a cupcake without icing. Yes, I will still eat that delicious icing-free cupcake, but ooooh boy the icing just completes it. Hehe

  64. Sheena says:

    I think I started wearing lipgloss when I was in 7th or 8th grade…nothing very dramatic, mostly just sheer colors. I think I got truly addicted once I hit college though…that’s when I discovered the MAC lipglasses and Lancome’s Juicy Tubes lol

  65. Sarah says:

    Girl! I think I started wearing lipgloss out of the womb. LOL, it started in 6th grade for sure.
    .-= Sarah’s last blog post… =-.

  66. Priscilla says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in high school I think it was from prescriptives and I loved it!!

  67. Vandana says:

    I think I started in middle school – I wasn’t allowed anything too crazy so it was always sheer but it made me feel oh so sophisticated πŸ˜‰

  68. Ashwini says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in high school. I had one lonely tube of MAC dazzleglass, which I saved for special occasions only. Aaah things have certainly changed since then. I definitely feel underwhelmed by my current lipgloss stash so I really hope I win! Thanks for hosting such a generous giveaway. πŸ™‚

  69. Janet says:

    I was a tomboy til about 21 so I didn’t even start wearing any makeup until then and lipgloss was the first thing I tried!!

  70. Supriya says:

    I started wearing it in 2000 when I first discovered MAC lipglass…I fell in love on how smooth it was!!

  71. Wendy says:

    I started to wear lipgloss in junior high I still remember it was neutrogena and I got it as a gift.

    Ohh and to answer your question yeah I feel I fall into a same color pattern: shimmerry berry my big color adventure next is nudes, yay!.

  72. Deanna says:

    My love affair of gloss just started a few years ago.

  73. Casey says:

    I started wearing lip gloss toward the end of high school – my first and still a sentimental favorite is MAC’s Oh Baby….

  74. Betty says:

    I actually never started to wear lipgloss till I graduated from college. In highschool, I really didn’t care how I looked like. College, no one really care how you looked like either (I went to class literally 5 minutes after I woke up from a nap). But there were times during college when I went out to a club and put on the works, minus the lipgloss. I never thought about my lips needing to be shiny. But now that I started working as a receptionist. I gotta look my best everyday. This includes lips be shiny too. So now I carry 3 different lipglosses in my purse for regular touch-ups and I absolutely LOVE it!! Especially since I can’t really put on much eyeshadow, I gotta dress up everything else.

    I think I am a certified lipgloss addict now!

  75. Corrine says:

    i really didn’t start wearing lipgloss until last year. i am a lipstick girl and never wanted the greasy “i just ate fried chicken” look. but then i read about the drugstore finds and bought the sally hansen 12 hour lipgloss in baguette and got a ton of compliments! so now i alternate…

  76. Diana S. says:

    I started wearing lipgloss sometime during my freshman year in high school. Sometimes I wore just gloss, sometimes just lipstick. It wasn’t until just recently that I started wearing it over my lipstick !

  77. Heather says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was a youngin’ playing dress up! I actually prefer lipgloss to lipstick any day!

  78. Sarah R says:

    First of all, I gotta say I am thrilled about this giveaway as I am a HUGE lip gloss freak!!! And what a great way to test out all those shades!!!!
    Ok, I started wearing lipgloss probably in about 6th grade. I have an older sister that has always been in to makeup so I got to fool around with her stash and she had plenty of lip gloss.

  79. T says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in college.

    Love Avon’s lipglosses/lipsticks!

  80. Rachel says:

    at a birthday party in 5th grade, there was a clear, sparkly vanilla scented lipgloss in the party favors, and i thought it was the coolest thing ever. wore it every single day!
    .-= Rachel’s last blog post… SUMMER ESSENTIALS =-.

  81. Sara says:

    Honestly, only maybe a year ago.

    I also wore lipstick in high school and a little in college, and then when I got my first job. It just wasn’t popular. And i didn’t see the point of a second lip product. But then I discovered lip gloss with color, that was much more improved than I remembered, and now I’m hooked.


  82. Janet says:

    I got my first lip gloss when I was in 6th grade. It came with my scholastic book order! LOL!

  83. Katherine says:

    I probably started wearing lip gloss when I was about 12 – but it was the Bonne Bell flavored kind. My favorite was the vanilla cupcake!! It smelled and tasted so good, all the girls in my grade had a tube.

  84. Paula Lee says:

    I still haven’t really gotten into lip gloss. I will wear it occasionally, but its definitely not part of my make-up routine.

  85. Deb says:

    Fun!! I started wearing lip gloss sometime in middle school, I think. I remember falling in love with Jordana clear gloss because it smelled like cotton candy and it fit my babysitting budget!

  86. Denise says:

    I wore lipgloss in middle school, usually sheer or clear, but I snuck colored gloss while at school then wiped it off before getting home. Remember the roll on glosses that smelled like different fruits. And my mom was ordering from Avon my entire childhood. She would buy soap on a rope for Dad, everything from cosmetics to body care for herself, and she would always order me the Avon lipbalm and the Honeysuckle fragrance (I loved the bottles it came in). I still love looking at Avon booklets.

  87. Minte says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was about 14, I think. My mom gave me some of her JuicyTubes and I loved them. I always wore them because I just loved the smell and the sparkles =)

  88. candy says:

    as long as i can remember. it’s been the finishing touch on almost every one of my looks.

  89. Konnie says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was about 16 I think (that was 8 years ago…)!
    I wasn’t really into makeup until recently and lipgloss, along with mascara, would be the only makeup I would use! πŸ™‚

  90. Cindy says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in middle school. I saw all the girls wearing heavy make-up at school, but my mother only let me wear lipgloss to school. I’m so glad my mother did that! All the girls that wore make-up in middle school now look like they’re 35 even though they’re only 18!

  91. Marcie says:

    I’ve been wearing gloss for as long as I can remember! I started with lip balm – I distinctly remember a coconut formula I had in 5th grade. Recently, I’ve finally discovered lipstick and now I balance the two.

  92. Jennifer says:

    In middle school! I remember there used to be a cosmetics store called SkinMarket or something like that at the mall, where they had crazy, colorful shades of eyeshadow and lipstick and liquid eyeliner. I was in heaven. I saved up my allowance to buy my first gloss there!

  93. Tracy says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in college, it was a gradual move from chapstick, lol. It was more risque in my household. Now at the age of 27, i cant get enough of it. Great giveaway!

  94. Noora says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was about 13 years old. I wore it only to some special occasions, when I wanted to feel pretty and grown up. I was so excited to go to the drugstore and buy a tube of Maybelline’s super cute (at least I thought so then) hot pink lipgloss, and I used every single drop of it.

  95. courtnie says:

    I first started wearing lipgloss when I was about 11. My first of course was bonne bell when we were too young to care about quality and flavor was the most important. I still have a soft spot for them. I like the lancome juicy tubes still. Would love to try these!

  96. Anna says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was in high school, but even then it was mostly lip balm because I never felt like I could pull off lipgloss. I didn’t REALLY start wearing and buying it until this year, soph year in college. And indeed, all downhill from there right? =P

  97. Kat says:

    I only actually started wearing lip gloss about 3 years ago–someone gave me an asian brand lip gloss as a souvenir gift and it completely changed my opinions on lip glosses. It made my lips so soft and the color was this perfect shade of rosey/raspberry tone that had the tiniest gold shimmers–Gor-geous. …as I recall ever so fondly.

  98. rose says:

    hi karen, i do love avon, even when i was in the philippines, i use to collect those lipstick stuff from them…but i gave them away to my sisters..wish me luck:)

    Um, first lipgloss was a Maybelline rollarball lip gloss in banana I believe I was in 5th grade! I’m 45 now. I’ll let you do the math at how many years ago that was………;0)

  100. I’ve been wearing lipgloss all my life it seems- it probably started with the Bonne Bell roller ball glosses when I was 8 or 9 & my obsession just continues to grow!!!! I can’t be without it!

    I started during middle school. But it was only dollar store lipgloss, and it had the weirdest grape flavor. I ate Lipsmackers before that though, LOL.

  103. Dee says:

    My best friend introduced me to the concept of lip gloss in 6th grade. I used to sneak my mom’s lipgloss out of her purse until I got the guts to purchase my very own. I think it was something from neutrogena.

  104. Lauren Sutherland says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when i was probably 10! it’s one of my absolute favorite beauty products. I loved to get ones that tasted good and I would put it on and lick it off. lol!

  105. Amy says:

    Junior High, Bonne Belle strawberry. I still like this stuff even though I’m old!!

  106. Jenna says:

    I first wore lipgloss when I was 10 I think, and it was this completely sparkly crazy glittery stuff that my mom completely forbade me to wear. I wore it anyway πŸ™‚

  107. Savannah says:

    I first started seriously wearing lipgloss in 6th grade. I am an addict. I love lipgloss, it’s shiny, pretty, and comes in so many different shades!

  108. Angela says:

    I still do not really wear makeup that much. It is usually limited to weekends or when I go out, but I usually carry a lip gloss or chapstick (or something of that nature) in my bag at all times. It started when I was in middle school and I feel lost if I don’t have one in my bag. I really want to start wearing more makeup though.

    I started wearing lip gloss in the 6th grade. Bonne Bell to be exact =P. I was intrigued by the yummy scents and not-too-bold colors. Plus, it was the only thing a little 6th grader like myself could afford and get easy access to at the time.

    I don’t really remember having a “first” lipgloss. I do remember us girls in elementary school would get the smackers with the hook-loop devices and put them on our belt loops for easy access.
    This is a great giveaway, thanks!

  115. lo says:

    I must have started wearing lipgloss in middle school… I remember having the bonne bell smackers things way before then, but I don’t think I ever wore actual gloss before that point. But probably before my (thankfully short-lived) frosty lilac lipstick phase.

  116. Stephanie says:

    I bought a few lipglosses in college, but never really wore them because I hated that my hair always got stuck to it. It wasn’t until right after college that I got obsessed with makeup and finally realized that there are better lipglosses out there that won’t stick to my hair.

  117. Elizabeth says:

    I started wearing lip gloss my sophmore year of high school to be exact.Now i cant live with out them , i carry one everywhere i go.

  118. Susan says:

    Probably in 5th grade, I was taking dance lessons and we had to be made up for our dance reviews. Mom bought me a Maybelline Kissing Potion (roller ball goopy stuff) in a flavor that tasted like Juicy Fruit gum. I thought I was just like the big girls! Moved on to Lip Smackers after that. Took a break from gloss until a few years ago I started wearing Clinique. Always have a tube of it in my purse πŸ™‚

  119. cecilee =) says:

    lol in elementary school, all the girls had those awesome flavoured lip smackers and we would put them on in the bathroom haha

  120. Diana R. says:

    i n middle school, i wore lipsmackers and bonne bell. Yum!

  121. Crush With Eyeliner says:

    I started wearing lipgloss after I graduated from college and entered the working world.That’s when I started becoming more fashionable, shopping more, and dressing more feminine.

  122. Kelly says:

    I started wearing lipgloss around fifth grade. I bought these really cheap and terrible roll-on lipglosses from Claire’s. I moved on to some better lipglosses from Bath and Body Works soon after :D. The C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shines remain my favorite today.

  123. Michelle says:

    I started weariang that Bonne Bell lipglgoss when I was in middle school — now I never feel like I own enough glosses πŸ™‚

  124. Kelly says:

    I always wore chapstick and vaseline. I didn’t really get into colored lipglosses until college. I was a tomboy for the longest but there was something about lipgloss. Now I’m addicted! Great giveaway!!

  125. Nikia says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was like 5! I just wanted shiny lips like the girls on Kids Incorporated.

  126. Zmama says:

    I first started wearing Lipgloss in grad school and have loved it ever since!
    This wide selection of colors looks amazing!

  127. Stephanie says:

    I started wearing lipgloss (I guess what I used was more of a balm) when I was in 2nd grade, when Bonne Bell Lip Smackers were all the rage! I didn’t wear a lot of lipgloss after that until around 7th grade.

  128. LauraJ says:

    High school, i think. I wasn’t interested before that. i always liked the shininess & flavors of lip gloss

  129. Dasha says:

    when I was around 14 πŸ™‚

  130. evilcharity says:

    I think I was around 13 or 14. It was clear Max Factor gloss and my aunt told me that it looked like I had chicken grease all over my lips, LOL.

  131. Wendy says:

    Pssssh, I started using the BonneBell glitter gel on my lips when I was like 11 =P

  132. Anne says:

    I think I started wearing one when I was already 18.

    I love make up but my parents, aunts & uncles would prolly hang me if I even touch it. So, when I got here in US I basically had my step sister taught me everything she knew about it.

  133. martan says:

    I think I was 14 and it was for sure some italian brand.

  134. Caitlin says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was about 11. I thought I was so cool because I had a marshmallow flavored gloss from LipSmackers that had chunks of glitter in it. Not so cute looking back ha

  135. Sara R. says:

    I always loved rockin’ a shiny pout as far as I can remember, I was in love with Bonnebell Lip Burst in Watermelon. I was obsessed since the age of 10.

  136. Angelyn C. says:

    I started wearing lipgloss on and off in 5th grade. I moved on to lipstick in high school but now I’m back to wearing lip gloss almost everyday. You can never go wrong with lipgloss. πŸ™‚

  137. RLW says:

    Not until high school, lipstick was it for me, now I can’t imagine using both every day! I have a stash in my car, my purse, and my work desk…I am a glossaholic!!

  138. Erica says:

    I didn’t really start wearing lip gloss much until after I moved out after high school. I was a major tomboy in school – or just didn’t care that much about pretty-ing up. But once I got into lipgloss? I got into it in a MAJOR way. I have really full lips that dry out very quickly, so wearing lipgloss is both functional AND pretty.

  139. Tami Z says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in middle school around 7th grade. I wanted to wear lipstick so my mommy compromised with me and lipgloss it was. Probably Wet n Wild or Bonne Bell.

  140. Kailey says:

    Ò€œWhen did you start wearing lipgloss?Ò€

    My answer: I had worn lipgloss before, but i didn’t start to regularly wear it until fifth grade. I started wearing some high end lipgloss in seventh grade. mac. i fell in love.

  141. Jenny says:

    Woo wee. 25 winners!

    I started wearing lipgloss in middle school when my mom gave my my first clinique full potential lips. and ive loved them ever since!

  142. Kim says:

    7th grade – it was that super-cool Mary Kay pinkish-silver one. And I say super-cool ironically, though at the time, it was all the rage in Jr High!

  143. jessica says:

    I started wearing lip gloss right about the time i started high school. I didn’t wear much makeup back then and lip gloss seemed really cool back then!

  144. Kristy says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in the the seventh grade and of course it was bonnebell!

  145. Leopard Lady says:

    I was in the seventh grade when I started wearing lipgloss. I was forbidden to wear it! My favorite gloss were by Bonne Bell. I loved the versatility in color and flavor. My favorite shade was this dark brown color. I would outline my lips with dark brown liner and apply more gloss. I even mastered lipstick!

  146. Lindsay says:

    I started wearing lipgloss after college. I just wasn’t into lippies all that much.

    Probably when I was a teen. But I stopped. Picked up the bank breaking habit a few months ago. haha

  148. marie says:

    I started around high school. I was never that big into makeup until 10thish grade… now I carry one around all the time.

  149. Marmar says:

    I was in the 3rd grade. I was in deep shizzle with my parents for wearing earrings at school (clip ons from a friend).. I went to a strict Catholic school. The kind that would confiscate items they deemed “inappropriate.” After the earring fiasco, a friend of mine let me use some of her lipgloss. It wasn’t Bonnebell.. as a matter of fact, it wasn’t any particular brand at all. I don’t remember what it tasted like or what colour it was but I do remember that it was in a frightening, atrocious looking compact shaped like a Barbie head. From that moment on though, it was love at first sight. I begged my parents to buy me every possible flavour or type I could find at the local CVS. At the very least, unlike the earrings or those slap-on bracelets (which were also taken away at school), they didn’t mind me using mint chapstick!

  150. Gina Z. says:

    I started to wear lipgloss a little bit later than everyone else. I never used to wear it because I have always had an acne prone, oily complexion and I thought the gloss would just reflect the shine that was already on my face (and I hated that shine!). I started to wear lipgloss when I decided to accept my oily complexion (mind you, MAC Studio Fix powder makes this a tiny bit easier). I wanted to wear NARS Sweet Dreams gloss with NARS Papua liner so badly, so that was my first experience wearing lipgloss. I guess you can say that after hating my complexion since I was a young girl, I finally decided to accept and embrace it – wanting to wear lipgloss had a lot to do with that! Now, I would never turn back πŸ™‚

  151. Diana says:

    I began wearing gloss regularly my junior year of high school. My first gloss was MAC clear Lipglass. I layered that sucker over everything and also wore it alone. I still tend to layer my gloss over everything and anything!

  152. Kate & Zena says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was in middle school. Before that, I was the chapstick/lipbalm freak!

  153. jessimae says:

    i started wearing lipgloss in 11th grade i guess. i had a beauty rush form vickies secret and nyc lip balm πŸ™‚ lol that was only two or three years ago adn im still using those brands. i havent moved up to mac yet!

  154. Susie says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in sixth grade!

  155. Mary says:

    I started wearing Smashbox lip gloss about ten years ago because it wouldn’t melt in my purse. Once I discovered Bare Escentuals Buxom, however, I was hooked!

  156. DLBoston says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in 6th grade and pretty much haven’t stopped since! I’m a huge collector even though I only really wear a few shades (i finished my first lip gloss last year, it was a big deal!)

  157. Tahnee says:

    Hmm…when i started wearing lipgloss was about 11 yrs ago. I was 14! πŸ™‚

  158. Michelle says:

    I started wearing it in high school, the cheap-y yummy flavored kind. But I really didn’t get into trying high quality ones until my early thirties.

  159. Jen says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in junior high- courtesy of my older sister’s stash!

  160. Ami says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was 21. Until then it was absolutely no makeup for me.
    Lip gloss was the only thing I would put on my face, until very recently when I started to wear full makeup on day to day basis.

  161. Vivian says:

    lipgloss was the first makeup item i ever wore. i’d have to say i started wearing it in junior high school.

  162. BeckBeck says:

    Ooh… probably sixth or seventh grade, although I was really more of a lipstick girl until fairly recently!

  163. Emily says:

    Honey, I have been wearing lipgloss since I could walk! Whenever I would go to the store with my mom I would always BEG her to get me Lip Smackers (You know the clear, fruity-smelling, $1 ones?) I was just a glossy kinda little girl. πŸ™‚

  164. Keshia says:

    I started wearing lip gloss around 6th or 7th grade. I was in the phase where I thought that I was a grown up haha. I used to get the cheapo 1 dollar roller ball gloss. The feeling was horrible and it like dried out my lips. But I was glossy!!!

  165. jen says:

    oooh, I’ve never tried Avon products.

    I think I started wearing gloss sometime in high school. I never really wore lipstick until recently. I like the foolproof method behind applying sheer glosses and most of the time they are moisturizing!

    My favorite glosses to this day are the mentha line from C.O. Bigelow!

  167. Rosie says:

    lipsmackers, i remember bubble gum or fruity rollons. i was prob in 7th grade. sticky sticky!! my favorite lipgloss ever was prescriptives. it was called heartbeat. perfect color and amount of sticky. it never wore off, in a good way. My new favorite is Loreal infallible lipgloss, and mac lipglass of course but a bit expensive. I would love to try the glazewear. seems inexpensive and well reviewed. thanks!!

  168. Ilene says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in middle school. I think it was Bonnie Bell vanilla and it smelled like cupcakes.

  169. Kat says:

    probably when I was in junior high!

  170. Morgan says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in the 7th grade… Back then it was all about Bonnie Bell’s lipglosses and chapstick. I’m pretty sure Vanilla Frosting started a revolution! I personally think I was too young to carry a purse {back before kids had their own cell phones and pagers} but I carried a purse chock full of my Bonnie Bell collection.
    .-= Morgan’s last blog post… 5 Minute Summer Makeup =-.

  171. Cat says:

    My friends started wearing lipgloss in the 8th grade. I wasn’t allowed to, so I would sneak it in my bag and put it on in the bathroom before school!

  172. Zoe says:

    uh I probably wore those $3 bonne bell lipglosses but I started loving lipglosses in the end of 6th grade πŸ™‚

  173. JillyB says:

    My goodness, it was a while ago. Probably in the mid-90s. Before that I wore lipstick. Now I wear both.

  174. Clara says:

    I’d never thought about my first lipgloss experience until now, but it’s as clear as if it happened yesterday. I purchased my first lipgloss, in college, at my local drugstore. The brand was BonneBell, and I spent what seemed like hours selecting the perfect shade. I’ve used a variety of brands since then, and I’m excited about winning the Avon line. Thanks!

  175. Anita says:

    Ah…lipgloss. I can remember my very first lipgloss. This pretty baby right here:
    I was at a flea market, and there was one of those stands that sells (probably expired) cheap makeup. I bought this. I wore it EVERY DAY.

    I eventually stopped wearing it, but one day I tried to get it out and it was becoming hard. So I followed an internet tutorial and heated up water in a mug to get the product off of the sides. I did so…but I believe I got the water too hot, for when I took the lipgloss out after sitting it in there for a few minutes, the tube was blown up, as if a ton of pressure was building up. So much for that. πŸ˜›

  176. Elizabeth says:

    I started with Bonne Bell much like everyone else. I loved the giant tubes, in flavors like cherry. I always have a variety of glosses available, at all times. Makes the hubs crazy.

  177. Mandy says:

    I started wearing lipgloss only about 5-7 yrs ago in my 40’s. Amazingly my first lipgloss was Avon Glazewear!

  178. christine says:

    i’m pretty sure i started wearing lipgloss in grade 7 or 8. it was just clear watermelon lipgloss from smackers. it tasted yummy =]

  179. Amy says:

    Yikes, I can’t remember. Probably high school, some sheer pink stuff. Actually, I graduated college not too long ago and just got into makeup recently….it was all about the CoverGirl powder and Maybelline mascara in the pink and green tube back then. Thankfully, times have changed πŸ™‚

    The Avon colors looks really nice! Thanks, Karen!

    When I was around 12, I think.

  184. pinky33 says:

    Funnily enough, my mom became an AVON lady when I was 10 years old and THAT is when I started wearing lipgloss. She would only let me wear clear shades though. It wasn’t called glazewear back then…can’t remember what it was called. (30 years ago!) I’ve been hooked ever since…and my mom is STILL an AVON lady. (though shamefully I don’t really order from her.) =(

  185. Hannah says:

    When I was in sixth or seventh grade, I went to a summer camp and some girls had brought their make up with them. One of the girls had some clear lip gloss (it had aloe or something in it, too) and gave it to me. I remember it was really thick and I always put way too much on!

  194. Coral says:

    When I was a little girl, lip gloss was the only kind of “makeup” my dad allowed us to wear. So the little ones with the fruity scents were my favorite. But when I really started wearing makeup a couple of years ago at 22, I was all over lip gloss since I was weary of wearing lipstick.

  195. Julia Z. says:

    LOl, i started wearing lip gloss in 5ht grade when i spied this lovely tube of orange gloss at bath and body smelled and tasted so good! that started my gloss ah i still cant walk into bath and body without giving into the temptation of those glosses..:)

  196. Heather says:

    I didn’t start wearing lipgloss until my freshman year in college. My roommate was this beautiful girl who wore make-up everyday, and I guess that made me unknowingly a bit more self-conscious about my looks as well. I got my first lip gloss as a present (it’s from Bath and Body Works) and loved it.

  197. Molly says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when my big sister first took me out so CVS I bought a cheap lip smackers, I swear i basically ate that thing!

    Hmm… I’d have to say it wasn’t until this year. I’m kind of new to the whole “make up applied with skill” thing and so I always focused more on eye make up.

    I started wearing lip balms first! And then lipgloss got to me because my mom would have little sample sizes from Lancome, Clinique, Estee Lauder etc.

    Started wearing lip gloss soon after, along with clear mascara and some foundation. Kinda fun to look back on, because I wear a full face of makeup on the daily now (foundation, gloss, shadow, liner, mascara, eyebrow pencil, blush and highlighter!) But I started small and picked up my fave techniques/products slowly over the years.

    I only own one lipstick that was not a free gift with purchase (MAC Viva Glam Gaga). Gloss is DEFINITELY my preferred lip product! I would love to try these glosses from Avon! <3

    I bought my very first (not those kiddie ones) lip gloss last Friday. It was on clearance for $3.50, and it was from Revlon, which I heard made great lip glosses. I’ve avoided lip glosses because I have big lips and the shine bends light directly onto your lips. I have a nude lipstick that I absolutely cannot wear by itself. I just layer this gloss on top (it’s a cherry red gloss) and blot, and I have myself peachy pink lips!

  246. Cecilia says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was in sixth grade and I can’t really recall the name of the gloss but I remember I really liked it and started to wear more lip products. =)

  247. Josay says:

    I wear lip gloss since 4EVER lol!

    When I was young I like put Vaseline on my lips … is that count?

    Seriously I love gloss … I love them when they are not too sticky πŸ˜‰

    I wear gloss since I discovered them from MAC at the end of the ninnies, remember the clear lip glass? It was my first one πŸ˜‰

  248. Courtney L says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in Middle School! I hope I win this one, I have quite the collection.

  249. Alex says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in middle school. I borrowed a friend’s and on mass days we would wear it. I did eventually get my own. I got a clear with glitter first. Then I moved on to a pink one from Neutrogena. I can’t quit lipgloss!

  250. Abby says:

    I started wearing lipgloss this year, I was so pro lipbalm until I bought a cheek and lip tint and realized what I was missing out on! I adore the ones that go on with a stained effect

  251. Janelle says:

    I started wearing clear lip gloss in the 6th grade. It was that clear cherry flavored kind with the roller ball lol .. I was allowed to wear lip gloss with color when I turned 16. Then it was love at first smack!

  252. elle says:

    Since I could wear anything. I’m starting to appreciate lipstick now, but lipgloss is a lot simpler.
    Thanks K

  253. Kimberly says:

    my first lipgloss was when i was 13…..MAC Lipglass! My mother bought it for me, and it was the stickiest thing ever!!! But now i like Clinique, Tokidoki, and Dior πŸ™‚

  254. Lizz says:

    Actually I’ve only just recently started wearing lip gloss, haha. I’ve just never liked the look or feel of it before so I stuck to lipsticks and stains, but just a few months ago I discovered the amazing-ness that is Nars lip glosses and have not turned back since. I’m on the biggest lip craze right now!

    I did have one when I was a youngin’ in 5th grade though, it was the love of my life, an iridescent blue/purple shellac basically. Loved it, wish i had it now that i’m back on the craze.

  255. Kit says:

    I started wearing lipgloss last year. (I’m pushing 30 and late to the game!) I still haven’t quite got the hang of it. But I love how it gives my lips a pop of color and shine.

  256. Sarju says:

    I was a late bloomer when it came to any make-up. My first lip gloss was in college. There was a south asian male make-up artist and he cajoled me over to the counter and completely transformed me. I am forever endeared to him. My first lip gloss was purchased to this makeup soul πŸ™‚

  257. STEF says:

    I would say it must have been around junior high and then it was lipstick for high school grunge days. And major gloss again in college. And now both! πŸ™‚

  258. AshBash says:

    i dont remember exactly when i started wearing lipgloss. id been wearing chapstick for as long as i could remember. i had those rollerball beauty supply store glosses in elementary and middle school. in college, i upgraded to my first mac lipgloss (viva glam 5).

  259. Maria says:

    I used to always wear the LipSmackers chapsticks in Jr. High and High school.

    After I graduated when I was with my first REAL boyfriend, he bought me a tube of MAC Lipglass after i’d been admiring it for a few weeks (i’d always wanted to get into the higher end makeup, but wasn’t so sure about spending so much when considering I didn’t have a job). Sadly, on the day we broke up, it fell out of my purse under one of the seats in his car…

    I didn’t end up buying another lipglass until 2 or 3 years later, and now my lips feel naked without it!


  260. Sam says:

    The first time I ever wore lipgloss, I was really young — like 8ish — and was acting as my cousin’s flowergirl at her wedding. My mom put it on me and I loved it!

    I think I really started actively wearing it in middle school. It was a lot more casual and age appropriate than lipstick.

  261. Jennifer says:

    Hmm I think my first lipgloss was probably in my freshman year of high school! I remember a lot of sparkly lips back then XD

  262. Danica says:

    I remember purchasing (well, my mom purchasing) my very first tube of lip gloss in the 5th grade. These were before the days I’d ever heard of MAC or Tarte. Mine was from Mary Kate & Ashley Olsens’ cosmetics line in a color called Pink Bubblegum LOL!

  263. Sara says:

    I started wearing lipgloss earlier this year, actually. It’s a move up from my chapstick, lol.

  264. Meredith says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in 6th grade, because it was all the rage to have the BonneBell flavored glosses! I loved those, haha.

  265. Sarah G. says:

    I was prolly in 6th grade!

  266. Maritza says:

    Ive been wearing lipgloss since the 6th grade! Back then it was just a sticky clear fruity Bonne Bell type brand but I felt like a grown up! My current favs are Nars Turkish Delight and MAC Viva Glam V

  267. Lydia Joy says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was really young.. Like, elementary school-aged. Of course, it was Lip Smackers in whipped (or vanilla?) frosting and Pink Lemonade, but HEY! I’ve always had a little glamour in me. πŸ˜€

    .-= Lydia Joy’s last blog post… YELLO’! =-.

  268. Heather says:

    I started wearing gloss when I discovered the wonder of MAC…sometime in college, I think?

  269. TerriB says:

    in junior high. :O

  270. Linda says:

    I was probably 12 when I got hooked on lip gloss, and it all started with lipsmackers.

  271. Monique says:

    I didn’t start wearing Lip Gloss until I was way into my 30’s. The reason is I felt self conscious of wearing lip gloss on my full lips. I thought that I would draw too much negative attention.

    I started really loving it when I found that people were paying get the full lips that I was born with. I thought it was a bad thing. Now I am embracing my full lips in my 40’s and I would wear the different colors from the giveaway with pride.

  272. Nikki says:

    I started wearing Lip gloss at the age of 19 when I moved from a small town to a bigger city. The bigger city just made me more daring and I LOVE lip gloss now.

  273. eileen says:

    my aunt got me my first lipgloss some time during junior high. it was lancome daquiri πŸ˜€

  274. Margaret says:

    I started wearing Lip glass when I was a freshman in high school. My classmate showed me her lip venom lip gloss and I wanted juicy big lips as well so I purchased the exact same thing as her. Seven years later, I cannot get over lip gloss.

  275. Silvia says:

    I first started wearing lipgloss in the 4th grade (ah bonne bell!) then i stopped around freshman year in high school when i started having boyfriends…who hated it! but now im a sophomore in college and enjoy it once more my boyfriend can just deal with it!

  276. kali says:

    I started “trying” to wear lip gloss in middle school but finally got it down in high school. =)

  277. Krystal says:

    I’ve been wearing clear gloss since around the beginning of high school, but I didn’t get into colored glosses until college when my collection literally exploded.

  278. Keri says:

    I started wearing lipgloss maybe as early as 6th grade? I’m not exactly sure, but I remember I had a Lipsmackers lipgloss that smelled like vanila frosting. mmmmm

  279. Nancy says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was 5! I would steal little swipes from my mom’s sweet-smelling strawberry roller-ball tube, but didn’t stay on for very long. It was clear, but made my little lips so shiny! I finally got my own tube (Lip Smackers) when I was 8.

  280. Judy says:

    I think it was probably in high school, and it must have been clinique superbalm….love that stuff, I still use it…does it count as a gloss?

  281. Diana K. says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I went into middle school. All the cool girls were doing it, so of course I had too as well πŸ™‚

  282. Jessica says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in middle school. I thought that and powder would be all the makeup in the world that I would ever need. I was wrong but I still love lipgloss the most!

  283. Susan says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was in middle school and my aunt gave me these cool little tins with sliding tops – one smelled like vanilla and the other like peach. I was hooked from day one!

  284. Ashley says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in high school. It was Maybelline with a rollerball and tasted like bubble gum. I think it was called Wetslicks.

  285. Natalia says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when I was in middle school and I had the most glossiest lips there, I was obsessed with them until I met my hubby 2 years ago but I still love to wear them when I get the chance =)

  286. Slick says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in high school. Definitely the Lip Smacker and Bonne Belle were my favorites!

  287. Nada says:

    I started wearing it in junior high! the same time i started wearing all kinds of makeup.

  288. Mei says:

    I didn’t really start wearing lip gloss until I got a free sample trio from Sephora about a year ago. I was usually all about eye make-up, but I found lip gloss to be nice and easy to wear and kept my lips moist in a snazzier way than just chapstick.

    i started wearing gloss in middle school with the brown lipliner….eeek thankfully I am way past this stage of my life πŸ™‚

  290. Shannon says:

    My first lip gloss was clear MAC Lipglass in the 90s. It was so sticky that I never wore it much. I had the tube for years! It’s still a genius idea.

  291. Anna says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was in high school. I started with a pale pink gloss that my mum gave me and I still prefer gloss over lipstick and lip stains in general. I love this giveaway! Thanks so much Karen and Avon!

  292. Olivia says:

    I started wearing lipgloss when i was 10 i believe. It came in one of those limited too bags. I loved glamming myself up! πŸ™‚

  293. Nicole says:

    Haha, lipgloss was my gateway drug! I bought my first tube of lipgloss in eighth grade, by sophomore year I had been dubbed “The Lipgloss Queen.” Go figure.

  294. Apple says:

    My first lip gloss was when I was eight, and actually was from the Avon catalog. It’s pink and in a tube with floral prints. πŸ™‚

  295. Eryn* says:

    i started wearing lipgloss in the 8th grade when bonnebell made the flavored glosses that looked like lava in the tube, ahh memories!

  296. maguire says:

    I think I got my first lipgloss in 5th grade… I remember that it was in a green tube and tasted delicious. Before that, though, I regularly swiped glosses from my mom and sister to use. Thanks for the givaway, Karen!

  297. maguire says:


  298. yourshar0na says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in high school (10th grade). I believe it was a cheap drugstore one, as before that I had just been using lip balm. Since then, my tastes have ranged from MAC to Milani. I love finding new lip glosses! =D

  299. Mandy says:

    My first lipgloss was when I was 12. I got it as a gift from my grandmother who had received it for free in a GWP. I loved it and wore it out to a big family dinner and got lots of compliments πŸ™‚

  300. Emily says:

    I feel like I’ve been wearing lip gloss my whole life! haha
    Actually I wore a little lip smackers and stuff like that since I was like 8, and more colored glosses and lipsticks since I was 12/13ish

  301. Tiffany says:

    When I was in high school! so maybe around 1999 πŸ™‚

  302. Jaun-Marie says:

    I started wearing at age 13, very subtle colours (like a blush pink). I was never a fan of lipstick because it made my lips dry, luckily lipsticks are luxurious these days!! I’m a huge fan of Avon products and I adore their Aloe & Avocado face cream. Bring on the Gloss!!


  303. Amy says:

    The first time I wore lipgloss was probably sometime in elementary school… grade 6-8 range. That’s when all of us girls in my classes started experimenting with makeup. Lipgloss was really one of the only things my parents would let me out of the house wearing. I’m sort of hooked for life too… I don’t own a lot of lipsticks, but I have a ton of glosses!

  304. Madelynn says:

    I just about DIED when I saw this contest. Goodness. What an amazingly generous prize.
    I started wearing lipgloss around… sixth grade. Bonne Bell had me like none other. I remember going to KMart with my mom and just lusting after all of the purple and white sparkly tubes of gloss in their tween-tastic containers. I never wore it all of the time, of course. But the same as back then, I use gloss for a pick-me-up, even when I’m wearing pajamas!. :]

  305. Angie says:

    Probably after my first kid around 8 years ago. I started to get into makeup just for some grown-up “me” time that had nothing to do with diapers, feedings, etc.

  306. julie says:

    back in the late 1990s when i was still in elementary school….. it was a huge fad with the girls to have ultra glossy lips, since we were too young for lipsticks πŸ™‚

  307. Sobriquet says:

    I remember at about age 8 being fascinated by a girl in the neighborhood looking like she had water on her lips. I still want to know what that amazing gloss was. Lip gloss was the first makeup I ever wore; in eighth grade I carried around a little pot of pale pink. Goopy, but I loved it.

  308. Mylala88 says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was about 14 but that was only because all the other girls in school were doing it xP Now that I am at the grand ole age of 21 (lol xP) I much prefer wearing lipstick and liquid lipstick on a day to day and lip glosses for nights out/funz!

  309. Crissy says:

    Only in middle school!

  310. I started wearing gloss in 8th grade, since it was the only “makeup” I was allowed to wear at the time

  311. Janelle says:

    I’ve been wearing lipgloss since about 6th grade and wear it daily ever since! When I started the 6th grade at a posh all- girls school on the Upper East Side (one of the schools Gossip Girl is based on), coming from Crown Heights, Brooklyn, I felt like my style couldnt keep up with the name brands these girls always flaunted that I could NEVER afford. To keep my own sense of style, and not being allowed to wear makeup, I started wearing lipgloss in order to stand out. Granted, I only wore and still only do wear neutral goldeny, brown glosses, but I do realize I need some more pop!

  312. Megan says:

    Wow, what a giveaway! I started wearing lip gloss late in college, maybe around my 3rd year, but I never wore it regularly because I wasn’t able to find a shade that I truly liked. I hope if I get these glosses I’ll be able to find at least one that suits me! πŸ™‚
    .-= Megan’s last blog post… Time never waits =-.

  313. Jaime says:

    I’ve heard really great things about Avon lip glosses. I didn’t start wearing lip gloss until my freshman year of college (which was about 6 years ago). A few girls in my dorm shared their makeup collections with me…good times, good times.

  314. Rozae says:

    I convinced my mom lip gloss is like lip balm because I couldn’t wear makeup in high school and to her lip stick was what big girls wore not girls in high school. So lip gloss was the closest thing I got to being a big girl. When I was a sophomore there was a workshop of being healthy with an emphasis on girly matter, I signed up and for coming to the workshop I got a gift basket with my very first lip gloss from Clinique. A beginning of a great relationship to come.

  315. Kennedia says:

    Wow…I’ve been wearing lipgloss for ages! 10, maybe? I was such a girly-girl. πŸ™‚ But of course it wasn’t good lipgloss, it was that rubbish lipgloss that you get from two buck stores πŸ˜‰

  316. Sandy says:

    I first started wearing lip gloss when I got my first Lancome juicy tube. I looooooooove its texture and how plump it made my lips look. Ever since then, I have been hooked on lip glosses.

  317. MsKianaluv says:

    College life, disco bling πŸ™‚

  318. Carolina says:

    6th grade! Hooked ever since my first Bonnebell πŸ™‚

  319. Miel says:

    Around the age of 14 – my first was a Dior B&G in Bonbon!

  320. Lexi says:

    I think that I started wearing lipgloss during my sophmore year of high school. That was the year that I started to wear a little makeup on a regular basis. I’ve had an on/off love of lipgloss since then. I like the color options that gloss gives, but I’m disappointed in ones that are very sheer.

  321. Mariah says:

    Hmm, I think I was pretty young. Yeah, my first glossy gloss was in like, middle school. But if you mean high end gloss… probably after high school?

  322. juju says:

    A year ago. A bit late, but I just couldn’t finds a lipgloss that I would feel comofotable wearing.

  323. Ms. E says:

    I wore cheaper gloss as a kid since it didn’t have much pigment and mom was happy with that instead of full colored lipstickt. My first grown up gloss was in my 20’s and came from Victoria’s Secret.

  324. Stacy says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in high school when I realized that I hated lipstick. I usually have at least 3 different glosses in my purse at any one time, my husband laughs every time I buy more.

  325. Camille says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was in elementary school… well, not to school, but at home during dress-up time. πŸ™‚ My mom worked for Mary Kay, so I tons of fun samples. I loved clear gloss, and started wearing it regularly in middle school. I was hooked pretty young.

  326. Natalie says:

    i only started wearing gloss recently when i grabbed a tube of NARS in turkish delight, it’s such a pretty pink and looks good too! only it leave my lips peeling and settles into the lines and it doesn’t look too hot.

  327. Jane says:

    WOW ! Coincidentally my first ever gloss was a red tinted lip balm like thing from Avon. It used to come in a small red container and used to smell like candy. Even though it looked like a balm , every time I used to wear it in college , atleast one person used to compliment on my “shiny” lips πŸ™‚ I miss those ! Are they even available these days ?

  328. Dorcas says:

    I was raised in a very strict Pentecostal church where you were forbidden to wear anything on your lips other than vaseline petroleum jelly.

    When I grew up and left home you can imagine just how thrilled I was to be able to wear any color I could get my hands on without fear of fire and brimstone. I was about 19 years old when I began to wear lipglosses and lipsticks that my older cousins would purchase for me.
    How liberating to be dressed up and have something nice on your lips to compliment your outift.

    I am now married and attending a non-denominational chuch. I have a 7 yr old daughter who I sometimes take to the MAC counter and purchase colored lipgloss for her along with clear colored lipgloss from Target. She is a little DIVA-in-training and I’m so proud of her. Someone had to break tradition!!!

  329. I believe if memory doesn’t decieve me that I was in 7th grade when I started wearing lipgloss. No, I’m absoultly sure. I was new to my middle school and wanted so bad to blend in and not be the new kid. I took so much time that morning to get ready. I didnt really wear make up as I wasnt allowed but my mom pulled out one of her nuetral lipglosses from her purse (cant remember the brand) and said “go ahead put some on” OMG! What a great start to great year. Seventh grade was awsome. Mom bought me a couple of lipglosses that year always in light pinks and browns. It’s still the only shades I wear.

    If my daughter is ever asked this question she would say that she was 4 years old. On her birthday I let her wear some for her party because her princess chapsticks just would not do.
    Now when ever we go to a party she wants to borrow some of my lipgloss. She’s such a lil mommas girl. πŸ™‚

  330. Saku says:

    I really started getting into glosses in high school. I think my first ones were BonneBell.

  331. Lucy says:

    Please include me in the giveaway. What an amazing giveaway. Avon’s lipgloss is really nice. I have a few and I like that they’re not sticky. I started wearing lipgloss when I was about 12 or so. All those years ago the only formula was in a pot. I was never thrilled with sticking my finger in there and applying it to my lips. Too germy for me. There wasn’t much in the way of colors. Of course I wore a bright and shiny pink. Probably a fruit flavor. Thank you.

  332. CC says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in middle school. It was the first cosmetic item I tried. I loved it and still do!

  333. Riswas says:

    I always wore lipstick but was never really satisfied because it would always look flaky on my lips, even after exfoiliating or on top of a lip primer. I was introducd to lipgloss at a MAC makeover in ’95 where they used it over a lipstick. I just used it alone and was so ecstatic at the smooth, juicy look it gave me. Do you know it took years before I realised I could switch up the look just by changing the lipliner I wore underneath? Man, that was like finding buried treasure in my bathroom! The combos are endless!

  334. Rachel says:

    i started wearing lipgloss when i was about 12 but i didnt wear it very often. now i wear it all the time!

  335. Maria says:

    High school, I mainly had drugstore brands. In college i discovered sephora and that is when my bank account suffered!

  336. Ruchita says:

    I too started to wear lip gloss after college and around the same time (late 90s). Revlon Coffee Bean lipstick was my go-to throughout college, but now I prefer the lighter and more sheer look of lip gloss. I don’t even own any lipstick now. Only glosses!

  337. Nene says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in middle
    school. The firstpricy one I bought was juicy tubes in simmer. Man I loved that lipgloss, it was the perfect nude. I found it again a few years ago and I put it to the side to use again but I haven’t been able to find where I put it.

  338. Elle says:

    I started right after high school, mostly during my college years because it was fast and easy to throw on. Lipgloss gives a nice sheen and brightens up the face, I try to keep one with me everywhere I go.

  339. sylvia says:

    Lipgloss was my very first experience with any kind of makeup. I’d say i started wearing it around 12 or 13. Although it wasn’t until i was 18 or so that I started using the more heavily pigmented lipglosses. To this day, I prefer lipgloss over lipstick.

  340. LB says:

    I started wearing Bonnie Bell smackers and a similar product by Avon in middle school. My first “real” lipgloss came about 10 years ago when I was introduced to Lancome’s Juicy Tubes.

  341. Eva says:

    I just recently started wearing lipgloss. I’ve never paid much attention to my lips makeup-wise, but I plan on starting a giant collection of lipgloss.

  342. sarah k says:

    I didn’t start wearing lipgloss until college! And I chose to wear lipgloss on particular days – when there was no wind in my city! =P I’ve stuck with drugstore brands & VS ones that were gifted, but I hope to branch out more because I know there are lipglosses with better quality!

  343. jane says:

    i started wearing lip gloss in the 9th grade. that was all the makeup i wore then.

  344. Scientific Housewife says:

    I probably started wearing lipgloss when I was in middle school. My favorite was the LipLites lip glosses in Cappuccino, it smelled and tasted so good! I think I ate more than I wore πŸ™‚

  345. Steph says:

    I first started wearing lipgloss in middle school, after wearing lip smackers for ages. I didn’t wear my first lipstick until college though!

  346. Margaret says:

    I don’t think I started wearing lip gloss until college — lipstick and flavored lip balms were the thing in high school.

  347. shen says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in middle school! I loved all the fun applicators and scents and colors….plain old chapstick wasn’t cutting it in those days. And then for some reason, all I wear is chapstick now!

  348. Christy says:

    Back when I had no clue about quality, or shopping around for prices, I bought a gold gloss from estee lauder at 16. It was nice, but nowadays I’m only willing to shell out money for good foundation.

  349. Maggie says:

    My obesssion with lipgloss started to a very young age, I believe when I first discover Barbie come out with her own make-up line….ohhhh to be 6 yrs old again

  350. brittany says:

    8th grade! had a whole makeup kit in my locker!

  351. knownever says:

    I started in like 6th grade when it was so popular.
    .-= knownever’s last blog post… War Paint =-.

  352. Em C says:

    Oh middle school–it was the only “make-up”‘ my Mom would let me wear those 3 years! My favorite was a strawberry flavored Smackers roll-on gloss!

  353. Katherine says:

    I started to wear lip gloss in the sixth grade which was 2001, I was really young and this was the only form of makeup my mom would allow me to wear. I only wore a little bit of clear gloss but I loved it my mom thought it was age appropriate and she was pretty strict with me lol. All us sixth graders would rave about where we bought our lip-glosses haha awww the old days :].

  354. Chrissy says:

    Oh my gosh – I LOVE lipgloss, but my current stash is basically just a clear, a peach, and a shimmery pink. I have worn lip gloss since even before I started wearing actual makeup… probably since I was 10! I feel so out-of-place with lipstick or stains, but lipgloss is a great way to up the ante on my lips while still staying in my comfort zone.

  355. Mommy2Maya says:

    I remember getting a lip gloss set for like my 10th Birthday. It was Bonne Bell and it was love at first sight <3. I was so sad when I left my purse at the Hello Kitty store and someone took it. Gone was my stylish denim purse, stuffed with my glittery delights :(…

  356. Katie says:

    It was my first experience with makeup probably in the late to mid ’90s. I wish I could remember what brand etc- Lip Smackers was def in there!

  357. Christina says:

    Wow. I was 13 and a girl in my class had one of her mom’s Avon catalogs. I loved that gloss and I lost it about a year later. It was the perfect shade of pinky gold. I miss it.

  358. MissHikerGirl says:

    I’m a recent convert to lipgloss. Before, I was all about full-color lipstick, and while I definitely still do love lipsticks, now that I’m older I appreciate the subtlety of wearing a lipstain with a nice gloss on top. =)

    I started wearing lipgloss regularly in the 6th grade. My mom used to take me to Woolworth and I bought Bonnie Bell’s sort of bubble gum pink. It’s one of my favorite memories!

    Great giveaway!

    I never really got into lip glosses till after college. Up until then I only would wear like chapstick. And now, my make up isn’t complete without my clear glossy lips. I love VS minty shine that tastes like mint.

  361. Debbie says:

    I first started wearing lip gloss in high school. I was never allowed to wear makeup until I graduated, the one thing I was allowed however was lipgloss… as long as it wasn’t too colorful. Although I hated not being able to wear anything else, pretty lipgloss made up for it.

  362. Brittany says:

    I first started wearing lip gloss in jr. high. Bonne Belle used to make this super shimmery gloss that wasn’t really any color but shimmer and I used that like crazy! I loved the one that tasted like vanilla icing and there was a pink shimmery one that tasted like watermelon. I went through tubes and tubes of that stuff. Whenever I got into college, I started getting into “better” makeup, like MAC and Lancome and using glosses that has serious color.

  363. Jody says:

    Middle school when I would wear clear glosses to give and moisture to lips. Lip gloss is still one of my favorite products to this day.

  364. Chance says:

    I was a lip gloss hound in high school- all in the shade of clear! Lately I’ve had a second coming to lip gloss… its such a fun product!

  365. Jessica says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in 6th grade, but I remember I HATED the way it felt on my lips!
    I gradually grew into my Bonnebell addiction though! I’ve been a gloss lover ever since.

  366. Katie says:

    I remember putting Vaseline on my lips to make them shiny when my older sisters first started wearing lip gloss. Then it moved to Bonnie Bell Lip Smackers plastered all over my lips in a clumpy shiny mess reeking of sticky sweet root beer, watermelon or dr. pepper. Once I was old enough, my mom bought me a tube of Mary Kay lip gloss. I loved the smell and it still brings back memories of my mom getting ready for a night out. Nowadays, I am a lipgloss junkie. I have some in my car, in my purse, in my bedroom, in half a dozen pockets of various jeans and jackets, and I’m sure under my couch. It’s an instant mood lifter and when my fiance is annoyed with me, I can kiss him and get back at him by coating his lips with a little sparkle!

  368. Stephanie says:

    When I was 14: Mac Lipglass in Nymphette. I still love it!

  369. Janet says:

    I think I first started wearing lip gloss when I was reallllly young, starting out with yummy lipsmackers, of course. In high school, i discovered Sephora and ever since have been obsessed with the higher end brands. I now love all lip glosses, from the cheapies to more expensive ones.

  370. Ò€œWhen did you start wearing lipgloss?Ò€

    I suppose I technically started wearing lip gloss when I was about 12 or 13. It was Avon’s Lip Slick Tint–a tinted lip balm. My grandmother used to get them as samples with her Avon order, and just let them pile up on her dresser. I used to layer them on (mostly in unflattering colors since my grandmother is a completely different coloring than moi). When I started wearing lip stick at age 15, I remember my mom declaring “Thank God, because I was sick of that Slick Tint s**t.” (Say that five times fast. Lol.) In the past two years, I’ve started wearing lip gloss more and more, and lip stick less and less. Because I’m a working mom, I need to swipe on something very quickly without precision so lip gloss is my best make-up friend.

  371. Ana says:

    One of my friends first got me a terribly tacky pot of lip gloss in 9th grade, and since then I’ve been a lip gloss addict! I usually find at least 5 lip products on me/in my bag at all times… it’s great πŸ™‚

  372. Vani says:

    I started wearin lip gloss when i was actually 16 , when i was still schooling and i was in sec 4.
    Back then it was an obsession but now it has been addictive that i do not go out without applying lipgloss ! (:

  373. firefly says:

    Hmm…when I was 10, I got a Lip Smackers lip gloss that I used. It was clear and smelled like plastic fruit. πŸ™‚

  374. Steph says:

    12 years old!

  375. lisajay99 says:

    I started lipgloss in elementary school – the roll-on fruity ones! Yum! Still wearing gloss today, though not that kind anymore!

  376. KLC says:

    I started in college. Usually I forget to put them on but I still keep buying them.

  377. Jane says:

    I only started wearing lipgloss a couple years ago (I just turned 30). It’s weird to think about, because now i don’t wear anything else!

  378. Shannon says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in 5th grade. I was beginning my lifelong battle with a make up addiction πŸ™‚ I remember I had two lipglosses – a frosty nude, and a frosty pink. Trying to be cute and grown, I would take the lipgloss and put it on my eyelids so it looked like I had eyeshadow. Soon I had all the little 5th grade divas doing the same, that is until my teacher walked in on me showing them how to apply it in the bathroom. She was so angry, but I still did it! LOL

  379. Eve says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in middle school. I bought the first one myself with money that I saved up because I didnt think my ultra conservative parents would buy it for me. it was lip smackers!

  380. Joy says:

    i started wearing lipgloss back in my middle school. I was 7th grade by then, the most popular was those bonnebell one and lip smackers. i wanted my lips to look really shinny and have that “wet” shine and i really like how lips smackers have those yummy flavors. i remember i also put them on because i wanted to have a taste w/ the fruity flavored ones.

  381. Paula says:

    Hi Karen,
    I am above your age demoraphic so you may not remenber Maybelline roll on lip gloss. They were glass(!) tubes with a roller ball and were clear scented, flavored gloss. I started using gloss when I was about 11 and have NEVER stopped! Gloss is the best; can be used on its own, or over lipstick. Colored, sheer, whatever, they are all awesome!

  382. Shirley says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in fifth grade! I wore BonneBell LipSmackers! Lipgloss was my first makeup purchase. I saved my allowance and all of my pennies to buy my beloved LipSmackers. I loved them so much!

  383. Amber says:

    I started wearing lipgloss freshman year of high school. I wore LipSmackers. I was given a bunch for my birthday and fell in love with them. I don’t really use them anymore. I now use mostly covergirl lipglosses.

  384. Natalie says:

    I started in middle school. My first one was a BonneBell LipLites in Strawberry Parfait. Mmmm, smelled so good! And I still use them today!!!

  385. Maria says:

    I never started wearing lipgloss & lip balms until I went to college. The super dry Colorado air was just too much & my lips needed a lot of nourishing. It’s really important to keep your lips moisturized up here because on the days I’ve gone without lip balms or lip gloss….. woah mama. They would hurt so bad!

  386. Shannon T. says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in the fifth grade. I remember only having two – a shimmery nude and a shimmery pink. Trying to be grown and cute, I would not only wear it on my lips, but my eyes as well LOL. Soon I had all the little girls weaing lipgloss and “eyeshadow” too. That is, until my 5th grade teacher walked in on me and some girls in the bathroom and I was showing them how to apply lipgloss to their eyes, She was soooo mad.

    I still did it though lol

  387. Christy says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in the 2000’s it was nice fresh break from the 90’s matte craze.

  388. Cz says:

    I started wearing lip gloss when I was around 13, when the lip gloss trend was huge again. All about the huge, glossy, reflective lips. Now, I just wear lip balm/bright lipstick. I think it’s more fun.

  389. jackie says:

    I started using lipgloss in sixth grade! It’s still my favorite lip product today.

  390. Jackie says:

    I started wearing lipgloss in middle school. I don’t remember why, but I thought lipgloss was pretty and different than the average lipwear. I would love how clear looked on my lips cause it was shiny and most of my lipglosses tasted good (HAHA). I ended up wanting more cause of the color/brand/taste and bamm ! There’s my lipgloss collection right there.

  391. Susan says:

    I started with Bonne Bell’s lipgloss back in middle school. So much fun!

  392. Teresa says:

    I started wearing lip gloss with Bonne Bell’s too! Started early high school.

  393. Megan says:

    hahah, i first wearing them when I was 15, those smelling good–yummy to lick–lipglosses. Then I shell out a bit of dough and bought a set of dior glosses–love!

  394. Sarah C. says:

    Oh, I first started wearing lipglosses in middle school – it was the first makeup I’ve ever worn!

  395. Ava says:

    I first wore lipgloss three years ago, when I started college – it helped to add some color and protect my lips against Boston’s bitter winters!

  396. Airess says:

    I first started wearing lipgloss when I was in elementary school I think and during the summer and on the weekends when my older sister and I would be home by ourselves I would play in my moms makeup and high heels for hours!! Lol but officially it was 8th grade and my dad bought me one of those strawberry flavored clear glosses by NYC with the little roller ball!!

  397. Pandora says:

    When I was little (elementary school), I stole my mom’s bright red lipgloss and tried it on – I guess that was when I first started wearing lipgloss! πŸ˜‰

  398. Sam says:

    BonneBell, when I was in middle school – the flavors were so tasty, I kept licking the stuff off! Bubblegum was my favorite.

  399. Susie says:

    My first tube of lipgloss was by Almay – it came with an eyeshadow set that my mom bought, so she gave it to me. This was during high school.

  400. Angela says:

    I started wearing lip gloss sometime in middle school. Back then it was nothing fancy just those dollar glosses that came in the glass tube with the roll on that came in different fruit ‘flavors’ lol

  401. Jenna says:

    I started wearing lip gloss in middle school. It was those flavored ones that were easy to apply so I couldn’t mess up the color

  402. Andrea says:

    I first began wearing lipgloss in grade school. There were two kinds, the rollerball and the lip balm types that came in flavors. The school informed me I was not permitted to wear lipgloss to school because of the smell I think, so I told my mother that I was mad about that
    and so she told me to stop wearing it. So I went to my father and told him, probably in whiny voice or crying and he told me ” that’s all right honey you can wear the lipgloss if you want to.”
    My dad just wants me to be happy and he knew it would make me happy. πŸ™‚
