I’m very particular about the lipglosses I use. My main criteria is that they must be shiny, not sticky and preferably unscented. I found 2 at 2 different ends of the price spectrum that fit this description.
Save: Silkygirl Moisture Max lipgloss RM15.90
At the “So Cheap!!” end of the price spectrum is Silkygirl with their new Moisture Max lipgloss. Colour is sheer, texture is a tad thick but its not sticky and its unscented and imparts a good shine. You could get worse in a lip gloss of this price 🙂 Read full review here.
Splurge: Dior Addict Ultragloss Flash RM88
At the other end of the price spectrum is Dior Addict – my all time favourite lip glosses. Beautiful colours, lovely shine and non sticky goodness. Oh and I like the packaging too. Flash is full of sparkles if you like that sort of thing. Read full review here.
Of course, if its within your budget, my recommendation is to get the Dior Addict Ultragloss. The colors look better, and they apply so much better and last longer too. But if budget is a constraint, get a good shine from Silkygirl at a fraction of the cost of Dior 🙂 These are not dupes, just wallet friendly alternatives.
Save and Splurge is where I show you 2 similar items by 2 different brands that I have tried. They may not work quite the same way, but it’ll offer you options for your wallet for a similar effect/product. Do note however, that it is based on products I have tried, so whilst there are many save and splurge options out there, these are my views. You can find more under the category of Challenges.
Silkygirl Moisture Max lipgloss retails at RM15.90 at major pharmacies. Dior Addict Ultragloss lipgloss retails at RM88 at all Dior counters.

there HAS to be an obvious difference paying for the exp lip gloss right? i love the dior packaging too!
Err… there is – packaging, application, pigment, texture and formula 😛 Silkygirl loses on every count but it satisfies the sparkliness on a budget 😉
I’ve used neither, but frankly speaking, I do prefer my Rimmel Vinyl Stars lipglosses over the Clinique ones.
Both of which I haven’t used either 😀
so….shiny…They look almost identical when it’s on your hand though =S guess you need to “apply” it to “feel” is eh? =P
I bought the Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Sculpting Powder Makeup SPF 10 today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it’s more expensive than i thought it would be it’s RM190 but it’s totally worth it i love it !!!!!!!!!!!
They both look beautiful and so shiny!
i guessed it right 😀
