My soon to be 12 y/o niece is now permitted to wear lipgloss, and I'd like to buy her one for her b-day. Seeking advice... I don't wear lipgloss myself, so I am clueless as to which ones are good and what specific color would be ok for her age. TIA.

I loved the Bonne Belle ones at that age. So many flavours and I think they were all clear.

My 12 yr old dd love Baby Lips, by Maybelline. It's just a clear, maybe lightly tinted gloss, but it moisturizes really well. Clear glosses are what her age is into from what i've seen, nothing bright or that has a lot of color, just glossy.

I think we tried every single gloss out there, because dd gets really chapped lips & she liked this one the best.

What do you mean by age appropriate? Do you mean the packaging, because otherwise lipgloss is lipgloss isn't it? Perhaps you're thinking of something sheer as opposed to densely coloured?


Today, I will be colouring outside the lines.

Thank you for prompting me to clarify - Yes, I was thinking more about the color when I said that.

My 14 year old collects lipgloss and lip balm. Her favorite is baby lips right now. She also loves eos, it is cool because its a sphere rather than tube. Both of those are more balms than gloss.

Do you mean lipSTICK? Lipgloss is just shinny Chapstick. It might be tinted but its clear. My 6 year old has lipgloss. Lipgloss comes in the disney princess play kits from the toy store.
Now as far as lipstick, I think she'll be at least 15, maybe 21 bf she gets to wear that!
The ULTA store has a lipstick variety pack(they're like little mini lipsticks). She might like that better so she can figure out what colors she likes? I know lipgloss also comes in variety packs. My little girl loves that Bonnie brand at Walmart.

The C.O. Bigelow ones from Bath and Body Works are really nice and don't have a ton of color. Some of them are a little glittery, too.

I'd recommend those.

If you are a pea that goes to Walmart, when you are in the check out isle they will have a display of "Soft lips lip gloss" it is tinted coral color. It is so pretty and good for your lips and very appropriate for any age. I wear it on my lips daily.


Even with the snark, trolls and spelling police you are a great group of ladies!

My 14 year old loves Baby Lips as well. I've offered her all kinds of lipsticks, but she would rather just wear this gloss. Makes her looks very natural.



May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God rather than by the cares of life.

DD is 12 and she likes the Soft Lips brands for moisturizing, they don't look like much on. If she wants something more make-up-y, she likes the tubes from Bath and Body Works...fun flavors, more shine and some have a hint of color.

I'm confused about a 12 year old just being allowed to use lipgloss too. I grew up in a culty-cult with no makeup allowed EVER, and we all had lipgloss when we were in 2nd grade. It was really just glorified chapstick in fun containers.

I think now though, there are so many more "adult" types of lipgloss that are popular. Some are even really dark/burgundy shades of gloss. Lots of shine, glitter, etc. So maybe this means the dark tinted/colorful kind?

I'd just hit up Rite Aid and pick a handful of different pink shades that look fun. I'd probably end up getting a bunch for me too.

If it's like chapstick, I think it's more likely deemed a lip balm, not a gloss.

Gloss is usually liquid, in a tube with an applicator. Normally sheer, either clear or a hint of color; sometimes just glossy, sometimes glimmery, sometimes glittery.

My favorite gloss is by Fresh and I have only seen it at sephora.com-- I like it because it tastes like lemon. But maybe a little pricey for a 12 year old.

Hard to tell you what a good color is for her age, OP. So much depends on your own coloring. CVS (and many other similar stores) have the NYC line of products-- $3 for a tube. Lots of sheer colors.

DD is 12 and she - and I also actually - wear Revlon Colorburst lip gloss - it's nice and light and they have a number of light colors.

Go to any drugstore and pick her up a few. Every major brand makes lip gloss.

And no, lip gloss is NOT just shiny chapstick. It's a lot thicker and is, of course, a gloss, and most nowadays are tinted and/or frost, pearl, sparkly, glitter, etc. I'd get her a few pinks/golds/neutrals depending on what her skin tone is.

I personally love the color varities from Clinique and I still love Lancome Juicy Tubes--but those are a little spendy for a kid.

MrsKLewis, I can see you're new here, so maybe you're not aware of how you're coming across, but so far it's "monumental bitch."

This is a light-hearted thread about lip gloss. Back off the attitude. Sit back and relax. Employ your spell check. And learn to use the quote feature properly.

Baby Lips is huge here with 12 and her friends for everyday, it's lightly tinted different shades. She has various true lip glosses for "events" lol - like going to the movies.

WOW! Please inform me how I come across a "monumental b***h"? I do not call anyone here ugly names nor put down others opinions. Or blast anyone for their spelling mistakes. Ill leave that to you.
