I love lip tints and such products. I like Dior Addict Lip Renewal very much but hate the $30 CDN price tag for such a product. So I had to have this. I find it sticky and generally "un-elegant" for lack of a better term. It barely turns into any colour on me and my lips are not very pigmented (NW 25). I would not repurchase...in fact, life it too short to wear crappy lip gloss so I might just toss it out. Seriously, if Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker didn't taste so bad I would say that it's superior. Many tinted lip glosses and balms are better.
I found this stuff felt too thick on my lips...almost like I had a layer of fresh hair gel where I applied it. The worst part is, it reeks like grandma's makeup... or cheap Halloween makeup. If you accidently lick your lips, watch out. Blllleck!
As for the colour? Not really natural looking, to be honest with you. I was a little disappointed to see my lips change into a very cheap-looking hussy type of hue. No thanks. Won't be buying again unless they make a few tweeks.
It makes your lips a lovely rosy-pink color.... not super natural but it looks nice!
I was so excited about this product because I love O-Glow. I figured same technology so it would be good. I was very wrong. This went on a little goopy and sticky. Didn't really make my lips feel moisturized at all. The color did not look natural. My husband told me I looked funny and it made me look like I had too much makeup on. Too dark for my fair skin.
I tried a sample of this from sephora after hearing big hyped up reviews from Allure magazine. There are supposed to be lots of good-for-your-lips ingredients in this gloss. I think the "changing color" thing is a gimmick, but it's a fun thing for people who are into that sort of thing. I didn't find the gloss to be very moisturizing even though the sales lady at sephora kept telling me that the moisture would sink into my lips rather than just sit on top. the gloss turned a pretty bright pink on my lips, which is nice, but I'm more into nude neutral lips, so the pink was a bit too bright for me. I don't know how well this product works over lipstick - I only tried it over bare lips. Also I prefer to use products with SPF on my lips during the day... so although this product was raved about in Allure magazine and probably at other websites, for me this o-gloss wasn't great.
Okay, so it is a nice shade of pink for me...I have fair skin and this seems to work well with it. However, for the price, I could go elsewhere and get the same thing.
I got this product in a sample size around christmas when I purchased the lip palette and liner set. Little did I know this gloss would be my favorite!!
I get the most perfect storybook princess pink color with this. I can never find a good pink and this is it!! the texture is fablous. It is more of a silky gel than a sticky gloss. I never get chapped lips and like the fact that even when the shine wears off,the rosy color remains.
Now for the bad part....It is expensive. However, I use mostly drugstore makeup so I guess it's ok to spend 25 bucks on the perfect pink lipcolor right?!?! Well, I justify it any way lol.
Though this gloss creates a natural pink lip while feeling smooth and hydrating, it can cake up if you use too much (it dries, leaving a cakey residue) and is well, boring. The only time I ever wear it is when I take dance classes because it prevents my lips from getting chapped during 2 hours of ballet ;D Overall, I wouldn't repurchase.
I like this gloss, but wouldn't buy again due to the cost. It has a nice feel to it, but it is otherwise kind of boring. I thought the color change might be fun and I had kind of wanted hot pink, but got a more mild natural looking pink. Sometimes I've noticed if I exfoliated that day, I get a more vibrant pink. A few times it is too vibrant. I would prefer to know what my look will be when I put it on and feel safe it isn't becoming more wild looking without my knowledge while wearing. I don't care for tube containers with a slanted end that much either. I still like it for the feel and no shimmer, for those times I need a change, but the inconsistancy of the color, I can't use just anytime.
My lips are pigmented. When using the gloss alone, the colour isn't that noticeable. However, I have paired up o-gloss with my thalia round lip gloss by Nyx and I love the two together. Its staying power is decent. I'd say I would have to reapply every 3 hours between meals. Some may find the product overly priced depending on your budget. On a student's income, the price is overboard!
