If you're looking for a clear gloss with tons of glitter just for layering with lipsticks, this one would fit the bill. Here's the problem, though. It's really expensive for what it is. There's no real color in this gloss that transfers. It looks beige in the tube, but not on the lips. It has a slight frost in it along with the glitter, but that's it. I do like that the applicator is a brush instead of a doe foot so you can tap this on top of a lipstick or another gloss to make it pop, and it won't rub your lipstick off. I appreciate that about it. And this gloss looks nice on, it really does. I like the effect. But I could find countless alternatives to this at a drugstore for probably a quarter of the cost of this. This Smashbox gloss was $18 when I purchased it. I have paid less than $2 at a drugstore for something that gives the same approximate effect. I can't recommend this gloss for that reason.
Smashbox illume is a sheer pink with tiny flecks of shimmer, (or glitter). It's an good color for adding shine, but the pink tone seems to disappear on my dark lips. The applicator is a brush, which I like, but the hairs have a tendency to go a little wayward. Overall this product adds a great shine to my lips, but plain and simple - it's over-priced. There are certainly less expensive equivalents on the market, so despite the fact that it's not a bad product, I wouldn't repurchase it.
It's a pretty color and I love the smell! This is a good, cute everyday lip gloss if you're looking for a bit of shimmer. I do find that it dries out my lips more so than other glosses (and even lipsticks) for whatever reason.
A great basic neutral with high shine and lots of moisture. Does not dry my lips out. Is non sticky, and lasts on the lips quite a while.
The color does not compete with anything, and I have found it easy to blend with different colored lip liners and stains, creating a multitude of looks. The only con is that I dont like the brush head it uses to apply product. Get it in the wrong way, and the brush strands start to frizz out. Would def buy again!
I have tried a lot of different lip glosses both high end and low end and I would say this is my favorite lip gloss of the moment! This is a beautiful sheer nude lip that doesn't wash you out but adds that extra umph in your make up routine. I can wear this and it doesn't go streaky or goopy(mac gloss I'm looking at you). I bought this for 5 or 7 bucks off of ebay. I love this color. Also doesn't dry out my lips! Looks great with my skin tone.
This is a nice shimmery beige gloss, with a slight pink hint to it. It looks great by itself or over a variety of lipstick colors. The formula is very nice, but unlike other reviewers I've found that it doesn't last that long on my lips. I do enjoy the sweet smell of the gloss, pleasant but not overwhelming. I hate the applicator brush which, after a year of use, has been beaten up quite a bit. I think a doe foot applicator might be better. I received this gloss as a gift. As nice as it is, I wouldn't buy it because I just can't justify spending $18 on a single lip gloss.
This is my go-to gloss! It's nude with a bit of shimmer than can be paired with a lipstick, lip-stain, or alone. It's not too sticky and lasts for hours. I would definitely recommend this product - if not this color but another to anyone.
I love this lip gloss. It gives my lips a beautiful light tint with a settle shimmer. The shade is perfect for my complexion without being too light. I'm on my second tube and I may go for a third when I'm done. One more thing, be careful about how you place the wand back in the tube because the brush will break off if you are too rough.
Nice nude color for smokey eyes. Not sticky like most lipglosses and it lasts quite awhile! Impressed!
This is a sheer wash of light tan glimmer on the lips. Very pretty without looking like a kid that got into a bunch of glitter! I have this in a large tube .20 oz.
