I really liked all of these colors. Some I will certainly use more than others, but all are six are actually pretty flattering. I don't mind that they are a little sheer, as I usually wear gloss over lipstick anyway. One thing that irritates me, as it always does, is the LE factor. It never, ever fails that the shade I fall completely in love with is limited edition. In this set of glosses it's 'lovely', the pink-with-gold-shimmer shade, that I can no longer live without. This is the perfect pink gloss and I feel like I've never found it's equivalent. Once this .12oz tube is done, I will be on the search agian. :( Sad. If anyone knows of a dupe for this shade, I'd love to hear about it!
I like this set of six lip glosses which I purchased from ebay for $18 (including S&H). I really like the consistency and look of these lip glosses for they are neither too thick/chunky nor too shimmery. However, I do wish there was more color payoff because the color in the tube is barely detectable on the lips.
As with all lip glosses, they don't last more than a few hours (but what lip product does), I am very happy with my purchase of these lip glosses but I would not repurchase them for I would rather have lip glosses that are more pigmented. continued >>
I won't lie... I was a skeptic, because in general I'm not very impressed by the many other Smashbox products I have tried in the past. In this case, however, I am very pleasantly surprised! I have been thoroughly satisfied with this set since I purchased it last month. Sorry to disagree with the last reviewer, but for me each color is very true to the way it looks in the tube... not light and washed out the way most glosses look upon application. The consistency is great - thick but not sticky, and the staying power is decent, a few hours or so (I just don't think anything will last longer than MAC's Lipglasses). No color is too garish, they are all quite complimentary - and I can say that, as a fair-skinned redhead! I think that for the price, which breaks down to $4.88 per gloss, this set is excellent. Great addition to any makeup arsenal.
Pros: 6 glosses at a great price (retail $29); nice vanilla scent (most of my Smashbox glosses are unscented).
Cons: In the box, it appears to be a colorful spectrum of colors, but these glosses have almost no pigment. Very sheer, shimmery glosses & would work well over lipstick.. but what's the point of getting the entire set? continued >>
