I just love this lip gloss. I have never had a better gloss than this one.

This stuff has the most delicious feel on your lips. Creamy, buttery smoothness. I've been mixing my lipsticks with this one - #231 is a sort of non-color nude - and I love it. You get a nice sheer color that doesn't seem to travel into those pesky little lines around my mouth. Very nice on its own as well. I would re-purchase but probably in another, deeper color for fall/winter. Lovely scent and elegant packaging, too. One lippie off for the OMG-I-can't-believe-I'm-paying-this price.

my HG lip gloss!
i bought this rather suspiciously to replace my now discontinued but beloved diorkiss in hazelnut lychee. i was NOT disappointed.
my experience with this gloss...
colors: i bought just one, the beige silk satin (#231), initially... it was a nice peachy-pinkish beige on me, perfect for a nude lip. it brightened up my fair asian skin (NC15/20) nicely, even though i had no other makeup on.
i loved it so much that the day after i went and got sweet praline (#431), which was still a peachy-pink, but a bit more pink and sparkly. i will be reviewing it here since there is no product page for it yet.
both colors will work well on a variety of complexions and with both day and nighttime looks. i prefer the beige with a smoked-out eye and the praline for a daytime/office pulled-together look. the praline is a MLBB color for me, and the beige more of a muted true nude.
texture: it's the TEXTURE of this gloss that wowed me, not the colors... the colors are not all that special, MAC has many like these. airy, whipped, soft, souffle-like, not sticky but substantial. feels like you melted & whipped a lipstick and applied it! i've never felt anything else like this. absolutely divine, i'm used to tacky/goopy or oftentimes watery/slippery lip gloss, but this is just simply and undescribably awesome. NOT as shiny as some glosses, i.e. if you're looking for a lacquered effect this is not the gloss for you. BUT it does leave a classy, sexy sheen to your lips, and is not too frosty. it is rather "glowy," not chunky glitter or cheesy shimmer.
longevity: wears pretty well for a gloss. i only had to reapply because i ate noodle soup at a vietnamese place. i would say 2-3 hours minimum and maybe longer. doesn't goop up, feel tacky or make ugly chunky things on your lips, hour after hour. fades to a pretty stain that isn't dry or flaky looking.
other benefits: feels moisturizing, comfortable on my lips. did not need lip balm at all. i only wish it had sunscreen and i would be set! has a nice, unobtrusive white tea scent, but no discernable taste. keeps lips smooth and pretty. boyfriend did not mind kissing me with this on either, since it wasn't too shiny or tacky (didn't rub off major-sparkly on him either).
container: nice dior lucite container with navy blue cap. pretty! these don't leak like the addict lip glosses, because the cap locks into place. it comes with a doefoot applicator, which is very soft and flexible. good size too - not too skinny/long or stumpy. wouldn't fit in a pocket, but it's not humongous like some glosses (rimmel gloss with light thingy, i'm talking to you!). nothing too special or innovative though. i don't mind taking it out in public, the logo is there but not too big (that's what i also hated about the addict containers).
overall, unless i want a more lacquered look, i will be wearing these all the time! both colors are amazing without washing me out, even on a minimally done up face (highlighter, cheek tint & this lip gloss). i won't bother with any other nude gloss anymore, and will be saving up my pennies to buy these again. i think i may just chuck my tried-and-failed lip glosses or give them away to my sister, altogether. i can't tolerate sticky glosses after these! highly recommend!

This is like liquid lipstick, I agree with the previous reviewer. And the color would work well for a smokey eye or everyday. I like how it has a sheen but isn't glittery. I would purchase again and plan on getting a lot more colors.

The Creme de Glosses are sort of like a liquid lipstick. Quite pigmented, but also very lightweight, and have a very pretty pearly sheen to them. They are quite long-lasting, and have a nice white tea scent. I have Creamy Almond (341), Creamy Gold (345) and Fig Nectar (641). The interesting thing about these is that they look so different in the tube than on the lips.
I didn't try Beige Silk Satin on my lips, but based on the color that it swabbed on my hand, I decided to get it. In reality, this color is not really beige... it is more of a light pinky-peach, which, while actually very beautiful, was slightly too similar on me to the Creamy Gold color that I already had, so I decided to return it to Sephora and get something else.
However, I did put that Yes I would repurchase, because if/when I run out of Creamy Gold, I may choose to replace with this one instead. It's a pretty color that would look great for a natural look or with smokey eyes.
For reference, I have light golden-beige skin with dark eyes and blonde highlighted hair.
