I've bought Ultra-gloss lipstick in 11. Unfortunately, our beauty counter doesn't have testers :( so I chose the color by the bottom of the lipstick :) I took the most non-offensive color but it appeared barely noticeable :D It adds peachy shade to your lips. Not the one I wanted but it's great for summer! Package is good, I don't like the smell but It's only 10$ for such a nice quality! Definitely will try other shades
LOVE this lipstick! I found these for $5 a pop on sale on Sephora's website and decided to give them a try, for fun. I bought Pourpre 45 - a plummy mauve, Cassis 48 - a deep plum, and Beige Rose 42 - a pinky beige which I know so many here have raved about, but which unfortunately is a bit too light and muddy for me. The formula is nice and glossy - though not what I would call "ultra" glossy - and quite moisturing. The color wears off rather quickly but the moisture remains, which is lovely. I like the berry scent, and that you can see the actual color at the bottom of the tube - really helps when you're searching through a drawer or handbag, especially if you have multiple black tubes of stuff banging around in there.
I just bought this in #42 and it is completely worth the $5 I spent. The lipstick just glides on sooo smoothly and smells great! The color is MLBB on me (MMM). This is a definite repurchase.
I also bought #39 but I don't like it as much because it is too pink on me.
I got one of these in # 40 "Groseille". Love this formula--very good value for the price, but I had to take a lippie off because the color swatch on-line was sooooo innaccurate. This shade looked like a glossy sheer raspberry pink on the website, but in person, this is holy flaming red. We're talking NARS flaming dust red with a hint more fuschia in it. Looks pretty on if I really want some drama, but It's definitely not what I had been led to believe I was ordering. Also, this is supposed to be an ultra-gloss but I find it even more pigmented and less glossy than the regular gloss formula. I wonder what the "ultra" is supposed to denote here? I thought it meant ultra glossy as in ultra sheer. Maybe it means ultra pigmented.
hey zoek! im in vegas too and got the 40% off deal! anywho, i bought two-- a glossy pinky/mauve and a golden gloss (which i now used to apply only to the middle of my bottom lip over clear gloss) but i love them both and i just got them yesterday.
these gloss lipsticks work really well, because they're not glossy sticky (which i somtimes hate) but their a nice sheer balance of gloss in a lipstick tube!
absolutely love it.
I bought this because of the reccomendation on MUA and am very happy that I purchased this! I have a neutral pinkish color, and though it was difficult deciding on a product, I am happy I got this one.. it really is quite glossy, but not TOO glossy.. Love it! AND it was 40% off! WhoHOO!
I like these lipsticks - I have both rose beige and beige. Beige is a very light (but sheer) neutral color on me - it does look beige. Rose beige is more pink than the name implies, but it also looks good on me. They are moisturizing but don't last a long time. They smell like strawberries. I'd say they are worth $10, but not much more.
OK, here I go. Lone voice of dissent, sorry. Got #42 based on reviews here. Not a bad lipstick but, for me, not good. The color turned out to be an unflattering, muddy mauve on me, not a pretty brownish pink (I'm a FFF almost PPP blue-eyed blond). I also got "Fraise" a stawberry red. Neither lasted long at all, maybe an hour tops. I'm starting to believe you just can't combine gloss and lipstick into one. If possible, try before you buy.
I am so surprised that I never wrote a review for these fabulous lipsticks. I have been buying and wearing them for almost 2 years no. If I need a pick-me-up Sephora lipsticks will always do the trick - they have every color under the sun and for $10 you cannot go wrong. I like the ulta gloss texture - it is not the longest lasting of course but it feels great on my lips and I don't mind reapplying. I have this lipstick in the following colors: 25,27,38,42,44,50 and 51.
These colors vary from light pink to my lips but better medium pinkish-brown to a soft medium burgandy. Because they lipstick are so sheer I think most of the colors would look good on anyone.
This stuff is GREAT! Super shine & sheer color. I have it in Beige Rose (#42) and Rose Pale (#38). Will go back & buy more. continued >>
