Like all of the glosses in this line, this one is a winner! It smells great, tastes great, and is really moisturizing. If you're looking for a lot of pigment, then these products are not for you. This one has subtle gold flecks and brightens my pigmented lips a bit. You get a LOT of product for the price, especially if you pick one up during the B&BW sales. I have the whole range and didn't pay more than $2.50 for each gloss.

I love this lipgloss. It contains a golden shimmer inside of a glossy, clear lipgloss. It is a very strong peppermint/ginger scent and has a cooling effect on the lips. It is perfect over nude lipstick for a sexy pout.

This is a very moisturizing lip product. I like the ginger mint scent, but some people are turned off by the ginger. The scent is actually pretty strong, and if I toss it into a purse, the purse will have a lingering mint scent afterward. The gloss leaves a golden sparkle, but on my lips, you can't really see the gold shimmer. Instead, they just look really, really glossy. The downside is that this product feels sticky on the lips. I was able to find this on sale at Bath & Body Works.

I absolutely love this gloss. When swatched, it's a light gold with gold shimmer, but on the lips, it just has a gold shimmer and my pigmented lips look a little warmer. The scent is a very wintery, but soothing scent to me. It smells just like mint with some spiciness in it because of the ginger. The first time I wore this, I was out having a special day with some friends, and everytime I smell this, it triggers that memory. I suspect this is also because this is such a unique scent. On the lips, it's very moisturizing, just like all the other mentha products. I would rate this a 4.5 if I could, because it can sometimes feel a little gritty, but it's only sometimes so I just rounded it up to 5 lippies. I absolutely love this gloss! I thought it was a holiday only item, but I saw it again this week in their regular packaging so I'm happy that i can repurchase if I run out.

My favorite flavor: like vanilla, mint, and ginger rolled up together. Very mellow. This is super moisturizing and the sparkle is an amazing gold tint. Simply wonderful.

Super pretty and sparkly. The shimmer is very fine, not chunky at all, but still plenty of glitz. The only thing I wish were different was that I would love a touch more color in the actual gloss. Love the taste and breath-freshening of this, and it lasts nicely. Would buy again.

The C.O. Bigelow Ginger Mentha Lip Shine is really nice and smooth. I love the gold shimmer suspended in gold gloss. I love the color, it's beautiful.
The shine is amazing on the lips. The scent and taste are minty fresh and gorgeous. I love the fact that the price is so amazing yet the quality is really good. Just buy the gloss!

I've been using this lip gloss like crazy ever since I got it. It's nothing special in terms of color pay off (just clear with gold glitters), but the smell is great and the application is so easy. I slap it on and it keeps my lips shiny, sparkly and moisturized. A great winter gloss and a staple in my purse.

The smell and the taste are delicious. It smells and tastes like minty gingerbread cookies. Yum! If you're after a gloss that smells and tastes wonderful, then go buy this right now!
The color of the gloss is very pretty, too. In the tube, the product's color is golden and orange-y. There's also some shimmer in the gloss as well. On my lips, the shimmer appears (though it isn't overdone), and there's a subtle golden shine. It's lovely.
The lip shine's consistency is like any other C.O. Bigelow glosses I've tried. They last for a decent amount of time, and they never EVER feel drying on my lips. Actually, my lips feel soothed and soft during and after wearing this product.
All in all, I love this gloss! It's very festive for the Christmas season!

I am glad I bought a few of these before they were gone... The color was gorgeous and sophisticated for a glittering gold. The smell to me was more like orange, but tastes good like the other mentha's. Come Back!!

I've been on the fence about a lot of the mentha products (though I love the vitamin mentha in Brown Betty!) but I picked this up where it was only $5 and I really like it a lot.
As a previous reviewer noted, not a lot of ginger to be had in this one, but I adore the gold sparkles.They are fine sparkles too; not chunks of glitter and they are subtle,which is what I like.I also noticed that it is fairly moisturizing-surprising as a lot of products with peppermint oil dry out my lips.I might even use this one up.(Wonders never cease...)

I've been using this non-stop over the past week. It smells so good and I love the golden sparkles. It looks good on its own -- and really good layered on top of lipstick. It lasts really well, too. I'm very, very happy with this product!

I love this product. The ginger scent is mild and fades away pretty soon. But the minty scent and cooling sensation last for a while. It can be worn alone or over other lip color. It gives the lips a dewy yummy look.

I love all of the Mentha Lip Shines, but this one's extra special because of the gold shimmer. It's very festive. It's got 0.3% ginger oil, and contains the same amount of peppermint oil, but I can't really detect the ginger scent. Cute packaging too!
