I liked this gloss. It wasn't that pigmented, but the packaging was great. I bought this because I couldn't find the shiny-licious line, I think it was discontinued. I got it in 50 Cocoa Fever and it's pretty okay. It's good to have a sheer color over a lipstick or stain or alone if you're running errands.
This is a fun novelty gloss, but it simply doesn't hold its own amongst other glosses in the makeup world (including ones priced much lower). I have two of the colors/flavors: 10 - Freshly Sliced and 05 - Peach Sorbet. I swatched both on my hand, which you can see in the product photos.
--> Freshly Sliced is a slightly shimmery baby-pink gloss with the scent and taste of Orange Slice candies. It tastes delicious, really... Which means I usually have licked it off my lips within 30 minutes of applying. However, while it looks pretty opaque in the tube, I find this deposits gloss with only a very slight shimmer to my pigmented lips. It might be brighter or more visibly pink on someone with less pigmented lips. This is my favorite gloss of the two.
--> Peach Sorbet smells only vaguely of peaches. I would hardly even call it a peach candy scent. I was hoping it would smell more like peach candy, a scent which is normally divine, but this smells simply like an ambiguous artificial "fruity" scent. It tastes a bit better than it smells. Not quite the flavor of, say, peach rings, but close. In the tube it looks like a sheer coral tint, but it's really just a clear gloss. You'd have to apply this ridiculously thick to get any sort of tint to your lips.
Staying power for both of these is average for glosses. Texture-wise, they are slightly sticky and thick, but nowhere near as much as glosses like MAC Lipglasses. If you enjoy fun, fruity flavors and aren't looking for much color or shimmer from a gloss, these are a decent choice. However, they're priced far too high. I've seen these retail for up to $8 USD each, which is insane! If you can find them for as low as $4 and perhaps BOGO free or half-off, they're fun to try. They'd be a great gift for an pre-teen or teen girl. But there are so many great glosses out there (for so much less) that I can't see myself recommending these to anyone else.
i bought this lipgloss in the mint falvour today and was expecting something that was really shiny but i was prepared for an awful taste but then i got home and tried it and it did not have an awful taste at all was not sticky and lasted on my lips for about an hour without eating or drinking and people were saying this is very pricey but at my walmart it was only 6 dollars and for such an awesome lipgloss it was well worth it WILL BE BUYING MORE!!
I didn't like this gloss at all..
The one I bought smelled just too sweet for be that: ... sweet, it just made me nasty, while tasted like nothing.
About the shine: it didn't impressed me, I mean, yes, my lips shined, but didn't give a standing lips look.
I'm not recomending but neither clapping at it.
Overall crap. This can be compared to them $2 lipgloss' with no name brands. Not worth the buy and waste of money.
-Packaging is great with the squeezy tube.
-Tastes and smells like medicine which is shit
-No pigmentation at all
-Too greasy and sticky and thick
-Does not last long on lips
-Way too expensive (got 3 of them for $13) for something that you can get somewhere else at a lot cheaper and better quality.
A regret buy!
Gloppy and goopy. Thick and smeary. Do not like the consistency. Cherry bloom color is pretty, though. But doesn't contribute enough to my face to make applying it and reapplying it worthwhile.
was kind of excited to try this since i heard good things about the smell and taste, but based on the one i bought i def wouldn't repurchase. i got 'treat me sweet', which is an okay color-pretty much just clear shine-but it smells like bubblegum and doesn't really taste like much. it feels a little oily on my lips, too. i'll give it to my little sister. don't think i'll be trying this line again.
I brought this in 'Glamorous Guava 25' which happens to be a nice berry pink. It works well with my medium skin-tone and I use this mainly on its own and sometimes over pink shades of lipsticks. I love the formula of these. They are not sticky and have a nice fruity smell (depending on the flavour of gloss) and last for a decent amount of time provided you don't eat or drink. This shade along with some of the others have a bit of shimmer in them, which looks quite pretty against my skin. They are very moisturizing and don't dry out my lips. I will buy more of these if I run out as they are well worth my money.
Wow this such a nice lipgloss! I have this one in peach sorbet and I think it's really great, smells good, not too sticky, color is soooo pretty! Also tastes pretty nice as well haha :)
Perhaps it could be shinier, but then again I'm not that big a fan of super glossy lipglosses...
The colour is really great for fair Asian skin, I have really really really fair Asian skin, and I always have problems looking for colors that flatter my pasty skin :L
I'll probably buy this again if I can't find a nicer lip gloss for the same or cheaper price (Y)
I have this lipgloss in "Freshly sliced" and I love it. It smells amazing, its not overly sticky, but sticky enough to have decent staying power (For me its like 2 hours). I think I want to try out more of the shine sensational glosses [:
