Long-lasting pigment and bottle- It took me about 4-5 months and I decided to toss it away. I don't like keeping my lip gloss for so long because it could be contaminated (not in the eyes though).
I liked the color a lot. I just wish that the tube was smaller so I don't need to waste half of the bottle.
This gloss is great for a natural look with a hint of colour. It's long lasting and hydrating. It's quite sheer and if you have not very pigmented lips like me, you might prefer a lipstick underneath. But I would recommend it!!
I got this gloss for only $7.50 at a beauty supply sale and I love it! The tube itself even looks so pretty and the colour looks so beautiful. It actually did moisturize my lip or at least my lip did not feel any dryness. The shine isn't crazy and it stays on very well. The colour look great with my skin too. But I probably won't buy it repurchase unless it's on sale again because lip gloss isn't such a must have on my face and there are tons of cheaper lip glosses around.
AMAZING!!! its the best gloss hands down I've ever used and I can wear it whenever wherever the colour is amazing and although its pricey it lasts forever! The best gloss I've ever ever used!!!
Love this lipgloss. Lasts for hours but I gave it a 4 instead of 5 due to the lack of pigmants.
I've bought this lipgloss several times. although it is a bit pricey i prefer it because it isn't too sticky or goopy like some other glosses I've bought that didn't turn out so well.
Great nude color. Little shimmer. Smells/tastes funny.
Won't repurchase but i'll use it all up. Mostly because it's quite pricey, plus i can get a cheaper lip gloss that would do the same this lip gloss does, and maybe even a little better.
Looking for a nude peachy lip gloss? Skip this. Look for something else. :)
I love this peachy nude lipglosses! Simply the best! Though the pakcage shows abit of shimmery apricot shade, when it applied on my lip, its goes nude peachy with no shimmery but gloss glow! Love it and it made me look overall good! Will repurchase :D

When it comes to lip gloss, I'm a die hard fans for Chanel esp for their glossimers and I'm not interested in most other lip glosses. But this actually sparks up my interest, aka "I want to try more shades" desire.
With it's $18 price tag, I think it well worth the price. Not quite sticky and very comfortable to wear though imho, the most comfortable formula is still Chanel Aqualumiere gloss. On the contrary to Chanel AQ gloss, I think this stays put better. Not scented as well, which is a big plus imo.
As for the shade, it looks peachy with silvery shimmers in the tube. I checked the smashbox website and it described Afterglow as "shimmery cool pink". Well, it surely has nothing to do with cool imo. When on my lips, its really shiny, not gritty but very smooth texture actually though I can see the shimmer on my lips. Colourwise, it's a nudish (not the concealer-type nude) peachy pink, which is surprisingly very natural and not OTT. This is also why I didn't include a lip swatch as tbh, it's quite similar to my natural lip colour. It simply adds a hint of warm pink there.
Since this comes with a built-in brush, I need not to use my own lip brush when I'm in a hurry. But... the problem of having this for a year or so, one of the brush bristles actually fall off and got stuck on lips - right today. The other thing abt the packaging which I am not too happy with is the wand made of plastics. It gets sticky easily and it can be a hassle to clean up if your finger tips have shimmer, which will adhere to the black plastic wand. Other than these, I think this deserves a 5.
This is the only gloss that I repurchased I believe 3 times. Its a beautiful sheer warm glowy peachy/pinky apricot. Its one of those glosses that looks good with pratically anything. Looks stunning during the warmer months when I have a tan.
