I got a set of four at Costco and they were very cheap. It came in:
Golden Pearl (peachy/gold)
The Sparkling Ruby... oh my! Quite the color payoff! It's quite pretty and I think some people are going to love it but it looks awful on my lips. Just too warm for my skin.
The other three are pretty. My lips are too dark for the pearl and the pink to have a huge impact. They are nice glosses but it worked out to $5 CDN for each one and I don't think I would pay any more then $7.
Elizabeth arden is hands down, one of the worst brands I have ever tried! I`ve tried this brand a lot because it`s readily available and have tried several of their glosses. The lipgloss didn`t go on evenly, was stick,y, poorly pigmented, and smelled horrible! The colors were nice enough but very shimmery...Elizabeth arden is known as a`brand for more matura women but their products are extremely tacky...
The lip gloss was more expensive then Mac, and the packaging was ugly...what a waste of money!
The colors are not bad. But the smell is really hard to bear...
The texture is ordinary.
I would prefer to spend my money on Guerlain glosses...
Pros - I love the colour 'Rosegold'
It really is high shine
Cons- The smell and taste are horrible
Not very good staying power
I hate this lip gloss. The glitter is sticky and feels like grains of sand on your lips. It should be shimmery, not glittery. So therefore it looks cheap. It doesn't even give you a "high shine" result. It's expensive as hell. You can get much better products than this for half the price. And last but not least, the smell is terrible. As you've probably read before it smells like plastic. Even if it's fragrance free it shouldn't smell like plastic. Clinique have only fragrance free glosses and they don't smell anything, not even plastic...
I received three of these lip glosses in a gift set and I don't know if any of them will be keepers. Golden Pearl is a very pale pink with a golden shimmer. Maple is a warm rosy brown with the same golden shimmer. And Berrylicious is a medium rosy pink with he same shimmer. All three shades are too shimmery for me-reminds me of the frosty lipstick shades popular in the 1980s. All three have the same plasticky smell that other reviewers have commented on. Of the three, only Berrylicious is something I can see myself wearing. The consistency of the glosses is thick and sticky. Not a bad product-I'm sure if I could choose other colours I would like them better.
Yay for pigmentation! I have this gloss in Berrylicious, which is a quite a gorgeous medium-deep raspberry color with more red than purple. It shows up on my lips as a near opaque color in one swipe and can be layered to easily get solid color. I save this one for nights out or parties as I prefer sheerer and less impact lip colors in the daytime.
The formula is on the richer side and is at an average stickiness for a gloss (not really sticky like the Philosophy glosses but not as non-sticky as the NYX Mega Shines), and it stays on well.There is no taste and no added fragrance. However, there is definitely a sort of fake plastic-y scent...I've come to tolerate it as it's not obvious but it could be bothersome.
This lip gloss has the most disgusting smell ever. I have it in a beige color (can't remember the name) and it's hard to apply evenly, the pigmentation is ok but nothing special, it's a little more frosty than I want it to be. But as I said, the scent is the most horrific artificial palsticky thing ever and I would never buy this again, in fact I wouldn't (couldn't) wear it if they paid me. Any NYX/e.l.f. gloss I have ever tried is a million times better than this. Plus the container and applicator are very ordinary looking, for the price they could have used a little imagination or at least made it look prettier.
I have a full size in Tropicoral, and a sample size in Champagne.
Tropicoral is, well, a coral sorta colour, maybe a little more to the pinkish side, with teenie tinie pink and gold shimmers in it. The colour isn't highly pigmented, but it does still leave a slight tint if worn alone. I put this over a plain pink lippie and it looks pretty good.
The only other problem with it is that it doesn't seem to last very long, so this is definiately not my 'every day' lipgloss. I stick to wearing this if I am going out to dinners etc or if I am going out on the weekends.
It is rather pricey from DJs, but, hey, these are the things we do for beauty..
I received a tube of this as a GWP. First of all, has a very odd smell, like plastic and really cheap perfume. Also, feels very tacky and gritty on the lips. I would never, ever buy this, I've had better experineces with Dollar Store makeup. If I could give it a negative 10 I would!!
