This is just another overhyped drugstore lip gloss with average staying power, pigmentation, and a nice smell. I have the gloss in sweet indulgence. It has an overused sweet, cake batter smell that gets pretty boring after a while. The pigmentation is sheer, not horrible, but at my age, I don't just wear lip gloss for its shine. This one seems like one of the more pigmented colours in the collection. I would expect that colours like peach sorbet have terrible colour pay-off... These glosses also have average to poor staying power. I'm in high school, and I only drink water from 8 to 12am. The gloss is almost gone by the time its 10. On the upside, shine sensational is a cheap, fun gloss that's easy to take on the go.
I have this in Berry Dazzle. I'm not a gloss lover, yet find myself buying one to try out every here & there! I like the formula of this, not thick & goopy like so many I've tried. Not a lot of color payoff, but the shine and shimmer are beautiful :)
The thing I find odd is the sensation and smell/taste - almost like novocaine used at the dentist!
I recieved this as a birthday gift last summer.I have the one that's the first picture up there. It smells absolutely amazing and is very moisturizing. My little sister has Freshly Sliced and we both love it. These are relatively sheer but good for a quick tiny pop of color lip gloss. I like this a lot.
I have this in Treat Me Sweet #20, I'm not thrilled with it. It's more of a sheer on my lips and it does shine a bit and it's not sticky which is the one thing I like about it. It does smell good but not a great taste, IDK it just doesn't give me an umph feeling or stand out to me.
#50 Coco Fever is a staple for me. Alone it is a pretty neutral that looks polished. Shiny, but not disco, out is work appropriate. Layered over any lipstick, it is stunning. Looks more expensive than it is. Is smooth, and not sticky at all. Is long wearing, for a lip gloss, but I wish it lasted longer. Smells, and tastes great. Not sure why there are so many negative reviews, but I think it is for the other colors, which I wouldn't like either.
I have this in 'Cranberry Crave' which is a cherry red gloss. Talking about the flavor, its a very dull taste and Im not a real fan. Wouldnt reccomend this flavor to anyone. However, as a gloss, Im quite liking these. They are shiny but not over the top and no shimmer[atleast in mine]. Extremely hydrating and not very sticky. Great gloss for less price and they last quite a bit. Give these a try, wont regret! Will repurchase in a different flavor/shade. :)
I bought the Peach Sorbet, and loved it! It smells great, no funky flavor, and really gives my lips the shine they need. It's not a lot of color, but it gives a nice shine to my lips. Plus, I've received a lot of compliments on how yummy my lips smell =]
I have this in "Cocoa Fever" and it is just "okay" for me. It's nothing wonderful and magical. I will most likely not repurchase even if they are marked down to 50% off at CVS right now. This is a light brown, with slight shimmer. It glides on sort of smooth but the color is really light, not so much sheer but light. The smell is nice, it reminds me of Cocoalicious from VS Beauty Rush lip glosses. It has the same nice, chocolate smell. But that's about the only thing I really like about it. It's not as smooth as I would like it to be, it's a bit gritty, only slighty though. I wiped it off after less than 30 minutes of wearing it because oddly enough it felt and looked boring on my lips. I also think that it's overpriced, but I guess because it's Maybelline it's marketed that way. It really should be less than $3 in my honest opinion.
Looking for a nude-ish lip gloss, and with the BOGO at 50% off, I decided to give this lip gloss a go with the purchase of my Great Lash Lots of Lashes. The lightest shade was Cherry Bloom. It looked like a pinkish-nude color. When I came home to try it out, I opened the cap and squeezed out a bit to see what it would look like... it was a creamy nude with shimmery cast that left me feeling a bit hesitant to apply to my lips since I usually am not one to purchase anything with this much shimmer. With the drugstore lighting, I couldn't tell what the finish looked like through the packaging. Well, it was purchased, so I thought I may as well give it a whirl.
After I lined my lips with a natural pencil, I wanted to see how this would work with my natural lip tone... so I skipped the lipstick application (I usually like to top my nude lipsticks with a nude gloss). The result? Well let me tell you, never say never... and the shimmer and color looks so perfect on my lip tone - that perfect nude color! that doesn't make you look like a walking zombie because of the pink hint. The shimmer actual makes my lips look even fuller! Wow! I'm glad I picked this up on a whim! I don't even need a lipstick underneath because there is actually enough pigment to tone done my lip color and gives me that soft pink-nude lip color. The texture is lovely... glossy but not goopy and keeps my lips moisturized and comfortable. I may never need lipstick again! I really hope they don't discontinue this color ... Cherry Bloom is a no-fuss nude look and the shimmer makes my lips look plump...HG!
I own two of these and I LOVE them!! Smell/taste divine, nicely pigmented, and not too thick/sticky. As with most glosses, doesn't last long enough for me but I don't mind reapplying. Will for sure buy more.
