I bought this product as I had tried thehighlighter in pearlescent pink and really liked it so I thought I would give this a try as I really like the contrast of red lip color next to pale light yellow skin as it helps to accentuate the yellow by providing contrast.
When I applied this product it burned my lips and made them really dry and dehydrated as though I had put a chemical acid on my lips.the texture was like a thinned out nailpolish that had been mixed with turpentine and that's what it smelled like also.when I applied the product it had the same effect as nail varnish that hasn't quite dried getting caught and smear across the nail.now I'm aware some of the products I was using in the past may have been contaminated with corrosive chemicals and I don't want to review this product without giving you this information that was part of my life experience I was used for because it would be unfair to the manufacturers of benefit and their shareholders and stakeholders and all the people who are working in jobs to produce advertise and sell these products.I would recommended trying the product at the sales counter before you buy and smelling it to see if it smells like something that has been designed to destroy your skin.
I love this stuff so much! I've been using it for years and have never found anything else that even comes close. I love the scent, it reminds me of roses. You get a great reddish pink color out of it and even once the glossy sheen is gone, the color remains. I only have to reapply it maybe once a day. It makes my lips super soft too. I wish it came in a squeeze tube instead of a glass jar. I have to use a q tip to apply it since I have really long nails, but other than that love love love. I've been buying it for years and will continue to do so as long as its available.
Me encanta este producto, pero lo que no me gusta nada es que al hundir el dedo , muchas veces se te queda producto en las uņas, y solo por eso me da mucha pereza utilizarlo.Pero el color y el olor me gustan mucho.
Beautiful retro pin up packaging, very glossy and not sticky, nice light pink color, awesome scent. love love love.
I'm not big on lip gloss/colors (with the exception of the occasional nude, I stick to plain chapstick), but this stuff I actually like. It gives a sheer rosy color and a nice shine. I really love this for days at the pool because 1.) it has spf15 and 2.) it gives a nice pop of color to a make up free face. It smells so good but it's not overpowering. The packaging is so cute (like most Benefit products) but, like others have mentioned, jars aren't the most hygienic option.
I'm rediscovering this now, and it's a really pretty color for fall, just a little deeper than my natural lip color. I wouldn't repurchase it simply because I think it's overpriced for what it does and I don't like spending a lot of money on lip products. But while I have it I will happily keep using it!
i love this product! it is the only lipgloss/balm i use and keeps my lips filled with moisture and not to mention it has SPF 15 which is great,
i have had it for almost 6 months ane eventhough my school has a strict no makeup policy, i have still used like half the tub!
My best friend bought me this for my birthday, I really do like it. It moisturizes, tints, and it smells amazing! I loved this product so much, i had to buy Benetint. Also, a product i love. Since benetint is quite drying on my lips, pair this lip balm over the top of it and Wa-LA! you have perfect, just bitten, rosy lips. :)
Pretty good moisturising lip balm which applies nicely and is not sticky. Lips are moisturised for a couple of hours before needing reapplication. I lke the rose scented formula and the colour although very bright in the pot looks rather natural and rosy on the lips.
I hate the packaging - especially as it stains your fingers if you apply it with those. It is unhygienic and messy to apply. I agree with another poster who said it would be perfect in a tube. Or maybe a rollerball tube. The pot is good quality glass with quaint retro labelling.
This lip gloss has the prettiest red tint. It's definitely red but still looks natural. Moisturizing and smells good. I love everything about it but the packaging, I wish it wasn't a pot. I hate sticking my fingers in it (and my fingertip gets stained red), and I never bring it with me anywhere because I don't want to fumble around with a pot and a lip brush. If Benefit could put this in a tube, I'd be in lip heaven.
I have just finished my first pot and waiting for my second to arrive by mail (yes, I am too lazy to go out and buy it from the counter). The biggest upside of this product for me is how the color fits my complexion perfectly. It also makes my lips incredibly soft. It might be a bit sticky for some, but my lips are crazy dry and I live in a harsh area (near the beach) so I take this stickiness as a positive feature. I swear since I've started using it my lips feel softer and less chappy even without anything on them. The smell is also nice.
The downside is (aside from being a bit on the expensive side) the pot is, IMHO, already a bad idea to store any product if it comes without an applicator, let alone combining it with something this sticky (come on! It gets disgusting sometimes to dip your finger in, spread them across the lips, and then what do I do with the excess balm on my finger?). It also taste a bit weird, and, not that I deliberately eat my lip balms, but sometimes it is inevitable.
Overall I would restock this product when I finish my second pot, the reason mainly being that despite its downsides I have yet to find another product that does my lips better.
