I have 2 of the Ultra Plush glosses, Sugarbomb and Bella Bamba. I like them both, but I don't love them. First, let's start with the good stuff. Both glosses have a nice texture, they're smooth a little thick and non-sticky. They do moisturize a bit and my lips feel soft and smooth even once the gloss fades off. Both also have a nice shiny finish. They both have a slightly sweet scent but it's not too strong or sickly sweet. Sugarbomb is a pinky nude with shimmer and is probably my favorite out of the 2. I really like the shimmer in it and it looks pretty over almost any lip stick color. It also looks nice on it's own for a more natural look. Bella Bamba was a bit of a disappointment to me. I have the matching blush which is a bright red-pink with heavy gold shimmer, but Bella Bamba gloss is a very very sheer pink with no shimmer. It is so sheer it barely shows up on me, and my lips aren't very pigmented. I was really hoping the gloss would have the same brightness and shimmer as the blush. It also looks bright in the tube but the color doesn't translate to the lips. I mainly use it throughout the day at work as it can easily be applied with no mirror. Ultra Plush glosses do have some negatives. They do tend to slip and slide around my lips very easily and have incredibly short wear times. The glossy finish wears off in about 30 minutes with no eating or drinking. I'll happily use these 2 glosses up but I won't buy them again.
I'm on the hunt reddish brownish pink lipstick that screams MLBB, juicy, just bitten lips for an NC 42 skin tone. The color on this tube is beautiful and was everything that I looking for. The gloss is quite hydrating after application and it gave a sheer version of what's on the tube. The color disappeared on the lips after 10 minutes though they stay hydrating for another two hours. The cute squeeze tube is very practical and mess-free which is always a plus. Would I say it's worth $20? I doubt it. Though it does make me wonder if they have Dallas in lipstick form and if they do, I'll grab it in a heartbeat because the color is a dream
I got the travel sizes in Coralista, Sugarbomb, and dandelion. Not impressed. They feel great on the lips when you first apply, but after five minutes they're gone! They have absolutely no staying power! I'm glad my friend gave these to me because these are not worth your money, travel size OR full size. I'm a lipgloss junkie and it takes a lot for a lipgloss not to impress me. Good job Benefit.
Smells lovely, not too sweet. Has a smooth silky and very hydrating texture. I have the coralista one and it gives a very sheer coral tint to the lips, though this fades fast leaving your lips nicely moisturised and glossy. A tad pricey and there probably are cheaper dupes, but I really like this.
LOVE THIS LIPGLOSS! I own the Dandelion one, its a little pricey for a lipgloss but its definitely worth it. The smell is amazing and the finish is beautiful. I wear it over top of MAC's Please Me lipstick and it's just gorgeous. It lasts a really long time and makes your lips shiny and soft. A friend bought it for me about six months ago and its still going strong. I highly recommend this product.
This is for the Dallas lipgloss. I own the Dallas blush, loved it, so why not the lipgloss to match? I ended up loving the lipgloss just as much as the blush.
The color is the same; the Dallas lipgloss is rosey-brown, nude color. Looks great and natural against my tan skin, and would look great on anybody else. It is quite plush feeling on the lips. Its thick yet not sticky, moisturizing, some shine with no glitter, opaque and smells yummy like fruit. This is in an easy squeeze tube....I dont feel fancy with this compared to a sleek and pretty Chanel lipgloss with a doe foot applicator. Thats typical for BeneFit to have such packaging. But take a look at the name+picture! Western cowgirl! I adore this even more! Maybe it has something to do with me being from Texas....this is always in my purse for touchups, and a little reminder from home while currently living in Europe.
I got these ones recently and am really gravitating towards Benefit glosses when I need that quick, 5 min makeup routine for a nice wash of color and juicy lips effect.
These glosses give that nice shine to your lips and are quite moisturizing as well. I love wearing these to the gym when I need to work out on camouflage my dry lips with a nice rosy tint.
I have several types of Benefit ultra plush glosses, with my top one being Bella Bamba. I haven't tried Dallas - but that looks cute as well.
These glosses are going to last you a long time and can be worn on their own or on top of a lip product.
I noticed that when layering these - they don't go clumpy and are not sticky at all.
There is a cool in-depth review of most of the colors + swatches from Benefit range here.
I bought this after asking a shop assistant her opinion on her favourite pink lip gloss or lip stick as I wanted something new. I bought it in Fauxmance at her recommendation. I loved it to start with, the packaging is gorgeous and the colour is perfect for a natural berry pink, however I don't know if I had a bad batch or what happened but about 2 months after I bought it, it started smelling really...off. Like not the fruity fragrance that it originally had (which didn't bother me). I asked my boyfriend to smell it and tell me what he thought it smelt like in case it was my imagination, and he described it as "wet clothes that have been left in a bag for a few days" and that's exactly what it smells like. I gave this a 3 because if it wasn't for that I thought it was wonderful, but unfortunately my experience was a bad one.
I bought a Coralista lip gloss with the blush and I am actually very pleased with it, I bought it slightly out of nostalgia for the Victoria Secret lipglosses we all obsessed over in high school, luckily this is not a sticky mess. It is decently pigmented and does have a luxurious silky consistency on your lips. I believe it was around $16 USD which is not too extravagant. Will I repurchase, no probably not. It is not a life altering product but it is a fun pickup and holds true to Benefit's quality of products.
One word: heavenly.
I know there are thousands of lip gloss products out there but I swear by this one. Sheer natural pink and it feels so luxurious on your lips! It's not sticky at all, and for a lip gloss it has a lot of staying power. A bit on the expensive price but I would say go for it if you have hesitations on buying this product.
