Lip Gloss Tube Packaging 101: Things to consider when choosing lip gloss tubes for your products.

If you are in the market for high quality lip gloss packaging, chances are you have found yourself doing some research lately. Lucky for you, we did all the research for you, and put it all in one place! Use this guide to help you choose the lip gloss packaging that will live up to your brand.

3 Things to Consider When Choosing Wholesale Lip Gloss Tubes

  1. What applicator type do you want? 

All of our wholesale lip gloss tubes come with a doe foot applicator, which allows the product to be applied evenly and precisely. The doe foot applicator is great for lip glosses, creme lipsticks, and concealers.

2. Will it prevent leakage?

You will want your lip gloss tubes to have a rubber stopper or “wiper” that ensures your tubes will stay tightly sealed. A rubber stopper can also prevent too much product from coming out when your consumer is using it.

3. Will it break easily?

Your lip gloss packaging should be sturdy and strong to prevent any cracking or shattering during shipment. Acrylic lip gloss tubes are reliable and high quality-sure to protect your product and your brand.

Lip Gloss Tubes vs. Squeeze Tubes

Plastic squeeze tubes are common in the lip gloss industry but can sometimes come at a cost greater than the price. Distributors will often choose this type of lip gloss tube in the hopes of saving some money while offering the same quality. However, that is not always the case. Here are a few things to consider when feeling tempted to sacrifice quality for price:

  1. Plastic squeeze tubes do not offer the same leak protection as acrylic lip gloss tubes. Our wholesale empty lip gloss tubes have a wand that makes it easier to get a more precise application.
  2. Acrylic lip gloss tubes are also more sanitary, making them the ideal choice.

Which tube is right for you?

At Cosmetic Packaging Now, we offer both clear lip gloss tubes and frosted lip gloss tubes for our lip gloss packaging. Clear lip gloss tubes are best for pigmented products along with any iridescent or glittery formulas. Frosted lip gloss tubes are best for lighter colored products or clear formulas.

Once you have decided on a finish for your lip gloss packaging, you will want to select the color (or colors) that best suit your brand.
