I've never been much of a lip gloss person, but I've recently begun to tire of wearing lipstick, particularly the constant reapplication and touch up that's required if you intend to do just about anything while wearing it.
Initially, I started looking for a lip gloss to buy from the slightly higher end of the price scale- I was thinking of something by Benefit or Too Faced. However, I ended up buying this after seeing numerous good reviews online and then seeing the gorgeous color in person.
The application is smooth and easy without being liquid-like or globby. The formula itself is non-sticky and even, though it is thick enough to hold onto the lips and stay there. The pigmentation is quite good- it's not opaque by any means but it certainly isn't to be considered "sheer" by lip gloss standards. The color itself is what I would consider to be an orange-ish pink; it seems to have an even mixture of both colors but it certainly looks too pink (on me, at least) to be considered a true coral.
I haven't had too many issues with this lip gloss, aside from the fact that after about three hours it starts to migrate towards the center of my lips, which means that I either have to a) smooth it out/re-apply, or b) deal with the terrible little lip gloss strings as I'm trying to talk.
Overall, it's a great lip gloss. It's precisely what I was looking for and- bonus!- it looks great over most orange-toned lipsticks.
This is a pretty gloss, but it's not super great looking on me. I have very cool undertones and this gloss almost kinda clashes with it. I can still use it, but I have to do so sparingly. I usually just dot it on and press my lips together to help distribute it for a sheer wash of coral or I'll use it over a lipstick to help it pop.
Which is a shame, because I really like the formula--no shimmer, no glitter. Just a shiny, rich, true coral colored gloss. Like most of the other Super Lustrous glosses it wears well and isn't drying. I think this would look amazing on warmer and darker skin tones.
I absolutely love this gloss. It is the perfect colour for my NC45 (mac) or 170 (makeupforever HD foundation) skin. The texture is very nice, it is not sticky but not too liquidy and colorless like some cheap drugstore glosses. This color and nude lustre are both I would say very universal shades that look good on most people. If you are really pale and have a skin tone where it can only handle just a touch of makeup than maybe go for nude lustre as opposed to coral reef.
I love this product, and the color was beautiful ^^
For reference, I'm NW45/NC50/Revlon ColorStay Cappucino with full pigmented lips. MAC C-Thru looks fine on me, but this is similar to that but with a milky light orange-nonsparkly peach version. This is so much better with my complexion, but I can see this color on all women!
These are the perfect lipglosses: long wearing, not tacky, smell slightly of vanilla, and beautiful packaging. Coral Reef is the perfect coral. I have one of the SL coral lipsticks and it looks terrible on my skin! This looks perfect, very peachy and healthy looking on my lips. This is an all over wonderful product.
I'm a lip gloss lover and lean towards bright & bold shades. Coral reef caught my eye for summer and the price is right for my budget! Unfortunately, it appears bright orange against my skin, not coral/pink as many swatches and pictures I looked at suggested. The color does not work for me at all! I find that it looks better if I use a small amount and do not saturate my lips in color. The product itself is a thick, balm-like gloss with a very subtle scent that reminds me of petroleum jelly. It lasts quite a while and I will try other shades, but definitely NOT this color!
Opaque, true coral, shiny, long wearing lipgloss. I got it on sale for $5.99. It's usually $7.99 at my local grocery store. Super cheap for the quality. No gaudy teenager design. Love it! I used to buy only MAC lipglasses... Now I know I can get the same quality for less than half the price.
Maybe I got a defective batch or something, but mine was almost clear with just a hint of coral that barely showed up (I'm fair-skinned with lightly-pigmented lips). That's the 1st problem. The 2nd is that this irritated my lips; after an hour or so, my lips were a bit tingly, the way they sometimes get when I wear any lip products with sunscreen in them. Boo.
I'm of the opinion that Revlon's Super Lustrous lip glosses are some of the best. This one is definitely my favorite shade - flattering on my pale skin and super cute for summer. It's not too sticky and it doesn't smell bad. This color is beautiful, I highly recommend it.
