First of all let me say, I'm not a lip gloss fan at all. I don't like how it feels on my lips, and I certainly don't appreciate random strands of my hair being glued to my mouth whenever a light breeze decides to blow. I'm more of a matte/satin lip lover and that's usually what I always stick with.
Then I chanced upon this little gem whilst enjoying a swatch-athon at my local Boots with my friend. It seemed inconspicuous enough to warrant a try so I picked up the shade 'naked star' and decided to give it a go. It definitely exceeded my expectations.
This is a lip gloss without the sticky gloopiness that accompanies most lip glosses. It goes on smoothly, the consistency isn't too runny and the finish is nice and shimmery. The packaging is nice and slim, compact enough to carry around without any hassle.
This specific shade looks great on my skin-tone (Mac NC30) and can be worn over a nude lipstick, or even a pink one to neutralise it a touch. I really like how 'naked star' looks on my lips (I've tried some other shades but this one is definitely my favourite out of the lot) so I will definitely repurchase it when I run out. Let's just say, this lip gloss has convinced me into giving lip glosses another chance.

(The photo at the top is *not* the color sensational lip gloss, that's the creme gloss...the color sensational gloss is in a square tube)

This line is amazing! First of all the color is true to what it looks like in the tube and it's super opaque so each tube will last you a very long time. The colors are gorgeous and the statement colors enable you to stand out with your lip color with out trying too hard. The gloss is very pigmented a little goes a very long way, it smells nice, it feels really nice, it goes on smoothly and evenly, and stays put for 2-3 hours (as long as there's no drinking or eating activities then it comes off immediately). This is such a great value, I actually got mine from Ebay so I paid at most $5 per gloss with shipping.

I have lavender lavish, raspberry ablaze, and mirrored plum.

I have the color coffee kiss which is a nude browny beige with hints of glitter. its very natural, light and non sticky. I would say it lasts for a long time but touch ups would be needed.
Lastly the sleek packaging is absolutely adorable and purse friendly.

I bought this lipgloss in the colour 460 "electric orange", a beautiful colour. Whilst it is a somewhat pigmented gloss, the staying power and moisture just wasn't up to parr for me.

I found that it didn't keep my lips moisturised for very long, accentuated dryness, and also feathered on my lips.

Another thing I didn't like was that it had a sweet taste. This is just a personal issue, and I am aware that some people like this aspect in a product, but I personally don't like that in lip products, because it makes me feel like the product builds up plaque on my teeth (again, just a personal issue).

The packaging is great, simple, and doesn't leek, but unfortunately the contents aren't too great. If I had to reccomend a drugstore lipgloss, it would have to be the Revlon Super Lustrous lipglosses.

Yes, I would totally buy this again and already have!

I have two colors. I first bought Iced Mocha, and later purchased Plum Luster. Both have nice pigment, not too much and not too little. Both stain my lips slightly, which I love in a lip gloss. Both are creamy feeling and moisturizing. Scent is sort of a creamsicle fruit flavor, and is much better done than a lot of other fruity lip gloss scents I've experienced.

Iced Mocha- Looks like a cool mocha brown with shimmer in the tube. On my lips looks like, a plummy pinky nude brown. I will purchase this color over and over and over again!

Plum Luster- Looks like a medium vibrant plum shade in the tube. One my lips it looks more like a brighter even more vibrant plum shade with a twist of berry pink thrown in. Brightens up my whole face, great for spring, or a statement lip!

Others note that the packaging is sleek, the color is show cased, and the overall design of the tube feels sort of high end-ish. Simple and but beautiful. I feel exactly the same! For Less than $6 at Walmart, I will go back to both replenish the shades I love, and try new colors!

Although I can't say much for the others colors as I only own one, I found the lip gloss itself to be fantastic. The color that I purchased was 'Electric Shock', which is a bright fuchsia like Barbie pink, which I'm not in love with but it was on clearance at Target for less than four dollars, and I figured since it's Maybelline I might as well pick it up.
The packaging is simple, with no label which came as a bit of a surprise, but it still resembled something almost high end. It has a doe foot applicator, as many lip glosses do and I personally prefer because of the smooth application.
The gloss itself is not sticky in the least, and is very moisturizing on the lips. Others seem to have been mention there being not much pigmentation, but the shade I got it in is very pigmented and can be built up/blended depending on how you want the color to pay off. I was quite surprised with the lasting power; it left a pink stain that wasn't too harsh in the slightest throughout the entire day, even after eating or drinking. You may have to apply once more if you want it to look the way you put it on, which is sort of obvious since it's a gloss. There may be some minor faults, like it could appear to settle in the lines of your lips and not look so great, but overall for the price you're getting it, I'd say it's a fantastic gloss. As for smell, I didn't personally think it was too bad and it has a bit of a citrus-y scent to it, but that's all subjective.

Pros:
Simple yet chic packaging
Affordable
Staying power
Pigmentation (at least in certain shades)
Not too sticky

Cons:
Can settle in the lines of your lips

I bought this a while back so I don't remember the name of the color, but it was a corally light medium pink with shimmer. It was so sheer as it just looked like clear sparkly gloss which I didn't like. My air said it looked cute on me but it wasn't my style. Also the smell. It's just bad. An artificial super strong fruit scent. Not pleasant but bearable. It wasn't sticky but I just didn't like it. Also the packaging is cheap, the new ones are a lot nicer and classier.

I usually don't wear lip glosses but I really wanted to get a mlbb color and some youtube beauty gurus recommended the color Iced Chocolate. It is a nude pinky brown. It is so pretty. It is semi-sheer and has great color pay off. This would look good alone or over nude lipsticks. The lip gloss itself is really light and glossy but not gooey, tacky, and sticky! Highly recommend because it is not sticky at all :)
