I AM IN LOVE. After searching for a nice, staple gloss for my NC20 skin and red hair, the SA at Sephora directed me toward peachy-pink and more apricot colors. When she pulled this out and I put it on - I was amazed. I have naturally very full hispanic lips, so I was glad that there was no plumping for me. I love the cool feeling, it's very refreshing in the Florida heat. The color was beautiful. I would describe it as a light sunset pink, and it lasted for hours! The price was a little high, but since it lasts so long you don't have to reapply every hour, and because of this I think it will last me a little while. I am excited to purchase more colors from the Buxom line.

I got this Buxom gloss in a kit so it was a great value. For me this color did not work. It's not opaque but it leaves enough of a coral, pink, golden color that I don't find is flattering on my golden medium/medium beige Asian coloring.
The Buxom lip glosses do not provide any plumping action for me so that is not why I purchase them. I've never bought them individually only in kits. I wouldn't purchase this color again but I would consider purchasing the other colors.

Originally thought that this would be a nice peachy-nude shade, but realized soon after that it was a nice coral-peachy shade! Has a bit of sparkle in it like most of the others!

When I first got this, I loved this shade, now I just like it. However, the shimmer is high, but not as high as Sugar for example. From a distance it has a glow to it and that I just loved. Close up in bright sun, I think it ages me a bit. The color is close to Bambi (which is less vivid), a coral-pinkish peach tone, only with a good dose of gold shimmer. I do like it a lot, probably my favorite peach coral shade. The only other color like it I've kept is Lacey.

Destiny is a pretty coral colour with gold shimmer. I love the minty tingle and the smooth feel of this gloss. With my skintone this colour is pretty but not one of my most favourites. I still really like it though and like to pair it with a light gold/beige shimmery shadow on the lid.

This is my addiction at the moment. It is not too sticky at all. I have been looking for one that is not sticky and has the same minty and tingly sensation "venom" has and I finally found it. I have this in destiny and I recently purchase a set of four. You will not be disappointed.

This, just like Bunny, just does not work for me. The color truly is gorgeous in the tube, and I think it's just as pretty when applied, just not on me. I am a fan of Buxoms and am constantly growing my collection. Most of the colors are sheer and forgiving, but this and Bunny make me look like a cheap hooker. I just cannot wear Barbie pink or bright pinks and even though this is very coral it has just enough bright pink to make me look clownish. I still think that for only 2 or 3 Buxoms out of a collection of at least 15 to not look good on me is still really good!

Destiny Buxom lip gloss is the first lip color Iíve ever had that I feel totally naked without. If itís not in my purse, Iím not set for the day. It is very rare that I find myself wearing makeup that doesnít go perfectly with this lip color, which is crazy-weird and unexpected, since Iím a cool-undertoned fair brunette with ďWinterĒ coloring, so I only tried this color on a whim. What a whim! Itís not sticky, not exactly long-lasting, but it looks so good I donít care. I like the sponge-style applicator better than messy brush applicators, so this is a perfect fit for me. I own several Buxoms and want to own more, but the price is a little steep for me to have a big collection. The mint in the gloss makes me feel fresh and ready to face the world when I put it on in the morning. Destiny Busom, youíre a miracle!

Destiny is a sheer coral with a gold shimmer to it. It's a great color to wear with bronzer, and mascara to pull your face together, and it's very flattering. The scent, texture, and tingle are the same as other Buxom glosses, which I am a fan of. I took off a lippie because it's just not my favoritest HG color, but it's still awesome.

I got this in a set with Amber. After trying both I can say that I've become addicted to these glosses. Destiny is medium coral with subtle shimmer. It swatches same on my hand but alas, on my pigmented lips it shows up as only a hint of coral. I usually don't wear glosses on their own, only over lipstick so I'm not too bummed. It lasts several hours and I love minty cooling feeling and vanilla scent of this gloss. This is really one of the best glosses I've tried and I definately want to get few more

This lip gloss is great! I love the thickness of it. It's certainly not too sticky, but it doesn't run outside my lip line like Lip Venom does. It has substance and stays on your lips. I also find the tingling very pleasant. It's more of a cooling tingle than a burning feeling, which can feel very refreshing on a warm day. I wouldn't say it's a miracle worker when it comes to plumping, but I did notice a slight difference. This could be in part due to the fact that it has a good amount of shine and moisturized my lips, though, but who knows. Whatever it is, I like it. Too bad it's a little expensive, but a little goes a long way. It also has a nice, dessertlike smell.
Destiny is kind of somewhere in between coral and peach as far as shade goes. I'm pretty fair and dark or bright colors don't really look good on my lips, but this was bright and playful without being overwhelming. I think the color is pretty flattering overall. I do prefer lighter shades and I got it in a duo with Amber, which is more of a peach nude, and I like that one better. But I chose "buy again" because even though I probably wouldn't buy this particular shade again, it was fun to try and I definitely like this line in general.
One thing I really hate about it is the tube it comes it. Don't get me wrong, it's really cute, but it has a thick layer of glass surrounding the gloss itself, creating the illusion that there's more gloss than there really is. If you look at the bottom of the tube, you'll see that what you're really getting is actually smaller than the circumference of your pinkie.

Since the Bare Escentuals boutiques discontinued the original lip gloss in Allure, which is my most favorite color. Until BE released the new Buxom lip gloss line recently, and I saw Destiny. They are almost close but at least it's still under BE!
It gives me "finished" look if I'm only wearing a touch of mascara, clean brows and a light brushing of bronze. I can wear it with smoky eyes, too without overpowering the colors.
It's a peach-pink color with a touch of gold. My favorite!

I too, am an addict of this gloss. I have a nude, baby pink and now this gloss. These are all wonderful, and this color is the best coralish pink I have found so far. Can't wait till I get my next color!

I'm so addicted to the Buxom lips. They have a slight tingling feeling on your lips, which is really addicting. Also, they look glossy and great on your lips. Destiny is a coral toned color w/ a slight shimmer. I am blond w/ fair skin, and this color is great for me. It's definitely not one of the corals that are too orangey.
