Got this from Sephora as a sample and while the color for me is a little too pinky-plum it works when I need something in this color line. I do want to try other colors however. But for the gloss itself, not considering the color - I love it! It has that slight tingly feeling when you put it on. I don't know if it really plumps, I have rather full lips anyway so who knows but I like the gloss as it's not sticky and seems to last quite awhile. I always have a glass of something to drink on my desk or side table and it manages to stay on quite nicely through all my daily beverage intake. Definitely re-purchase for me. This sample was a very generous size so I can't imagine what the real sizes look like.
I am such a huge fan of these glosses. Dolly is a fabulous plum - it's just a shade or two darker than my lip color so it just enhances and glosses up my lips for a natural look. Surprising, because it looks darker in the tube. The only disappointment with this is that in the tube, it looks like these has a gold sheen, but it's not detectable when it's on.
Like, make that Love this!
Quality, texture, gorgeous color that compliments all skin tones, shimmer, glossiness, and more in my Dolly lip gloss!
I got this in a BE set, and I keep going back to it!
I just received this delux sample at sephora today and I think I am in love! The color compliments my skin tone well and I actually like the smell and the tingle! I'm not sure if it does much as far as "plumping" goes. I have naturally kind of full lips already so when I use plumping products I dont normally notice much of a difference. I do believe I will purchase this again! The only drawback about purchasing again is the size of the full size gloss. I find it to be pretty big, I really like the size of this sample one. It will fit in my purse really well. Well, at the end of the day, i'm sure I will end up purchasing it again lol.
Typically I hate lip plumping lipglosses and am a huge fan of glosses wtih very little scent (like NARS and Dior). Anyway I decided to try this anyway - it was a bonus gift on Sephora. Oddly, this works for me! I actually enjoy the sweet scent (vanilla, mint, burnt sugar?!?), the tingling is pleasant, and it doesn't dry out my lips. Plus this Dolly color is a nice compliment to the mauves of fall. It's a medium toned muted rosey purple with a teensy bit of shimmer that you can't really see unless you look.
I am not a fan of lipgloss...specifically "plumpers"!
THERE, I finally admited it. So, I decided to stop buying them.
Well I tried to be strong for a while, and then sneaky Sephora caught me off guard with their free smaples...
I left the store and opened this tube and was OVERWHELMED by the scent, Vanilla, Coffee, Caramel... I don't know but YUCK!
I really was turned off but left it on my lips as I roamed the mall anyway. Three hours later the scent was still wafting in the air and I coulnd't help but notice that not only was I still gagging, I was still gleaming!
This stuff lasts forever! The quite pleaseant (minty?!?!) tingle even stays around for a long time...
I am hooked (despite the smell...)!
This colour is MLBB and not too too glossy!
My hair does not get stuck to my lips as I walk down the street when I wear this, and frankly this is the first gloss I can say that about.
Will buy again.
May attempt to invent invisible nose plugs in order to avoid the smell, but really if I must suffer the scent I shall, inorder to wear this on my lips.
That's the price I will pay for beauty.
I got this as a sample from the cashier at Sephora. I *love* it! It's an exact match for my lips, so it's me, only glossy and slightly plumper. In fact, this is the first plumper I've tried that actually made a tiny difference, only on my upper lip, but still. LOL. It's slightly creamy and very glossy. It's comparable to L'Oreal's Bare Naturale lip conditioner, which I bought the day before I got this. If I can find it on sale, I'd definitely get some other colors.
Love this lip gloss!
I received as my deluxe beauty sample at Sephora and was very pleasantly surprised. The color is a very subtle glossy pink. It makes your lips tingle, some people hate this, personally I love it. It does not feel sticky and the best thing, the gloss lasts for hours. I am a big fan of NARS lip glosses, especially Orgasm but am dissapointed with their low staying power. Well, not with this one!
I will definitely try more of their colors and buy a full size one of Dolly too.
I had tried different Buxom Lips colors at Sephora before and never found any of them that compelling. I actually received a half-size of this for my Beauty Insider sample and thought it might be a nice gloss to try, based on the reviews here. Well, I am not in love with it. The color is so-so... Looks like a mid-tone rose nude with sparkles, but on my lips, I do not detect any sparkles. Also, this is basically the color of my lips, so not that exciting. The smell is like vanilla cake... A little bit cloying, but I don't mind it. The tingling is not bad - feels like TheBalm lipgloss or any gloss with some mint. I did not notice any plumping (not that I expected it - I know better than to stray from LipFusion for plumping.). Overall, a decent gloss, but for $18, I would be hard-pressed to buy it when there are so many options out there.
Love the tingle and the subtle color it gives. I can use it lightly for the office, or heavier when I go out and want a lot of shine.
