I really like this, but I doubt I would ever repurchase this. There are a lot of other less sticky pretty lip glosses for much cheaper. This is the first BE lip gloss I have ever tried. I really only own it because I just recently purchased BE's Starting Line Up. I used to use only BE makeup products. I am thinking about converting back to them. I probably will do the complete changeover with the exception of lip glosses and gel eyeliners.
Anyways, back to the gloss. I find the color pretty. I think it could work for any skin tone as it is a neutral mauve-pink. I think the brush pulls out too much product so you end up having to wipe some off on the inside lip of the tube which results in it getting messy after a while. I will definitely enjoy using this up. However, as I mentioned, I probably won't repurchase.

I would consider this as a mediocre lipgloss. I am not the most consistent lipgloss user, but I got this in a set, so sure, I'll keep it. What I found really cool is the color- if Nars Orgasm blush was a liplgloss, this would be it (peachy pink with golden shimmer). It is very pigmented, and the color is nice, just not my ideal preference. Cupcake is a pretty thick lipgloss, and just a teeny bit sticky. The smell or taste of it is not super- it tastes like chemistry and it smells artificial and overpowering. It does look nice and everything, and the color looks really neat in the sun. It is $15, which is quite a bit for a lipgloss. It is okay, nothing to rave over, just a nice, shimmery lipgloss.

A friend of mine gave this to me and it sat at the bottom of my school bag for probably a month. I'm not really a lip gloss gal but I think this is nice. I like the color, a very peachy-pink with some shimmer that is quite flattering on me.
It's on the stickier side which I don't care for, but that can be easily fixed by not applying as much and blotting a little bit.
I have the full size tube so it'll probably last me a good long time and I will probably not repurchase after I have used it up.

I'm not a huge fan of the fake smell, but I do like this lipgloss overall. It has a nice consistency, and the price is in line with how much you get in comparison to some others out there. I also feel like it wears pretty well....but, it is gloss and I do need to re-apply frequently as with any gloss. The color is a warm rosey pink on me with some gold shimmer. Normally, I'm not a shimmer fan but this is pretty subtle and doesn't leave that shimmer residue on your lips as it wears off. Overall, good purchase for me at a decent price point.

The color is very beautiful and totally wearable for all skintones. However, I am just not a huge fan of its artificially sweet scent at all.

This is absolutely my favorite gloss of all time. I don't own many lipgloss and find most to be sticky, gloppy and overall nasty feeling. The success of this gloss may be the applicator. It's a small, fine brush that releases the right amount of product. Never dispenses too much product and gives a nice shine. Pretty rose color that suits my M.A.C. NW20-25 skintone.

i like the brush, consistency and smell. the color works well to give me a nice neutral lip when i pair it with a lip liner or over a lipstick. in some ways this color works better for me than rose or sangria for the neutral lip. i bought this shade because ulta was out of rose but so far so good. i'll wait until the end of it to decide which of the three shades is my favorite for a day to day neutral gloss.

Cupcake is a very pretty, natural looking pink with a slightly peachy undertone -- it's smooth (not sticky!) with a light scent. I love that it isn't too shiny, either -- it's a glossy but toned down finish. One of my favorite glosses!
For reference: NW5-10; NARS Siberia.

I love the color that this product has and its creamy and fun to apply, but It gave me this awful reaction, but it might just be my sensitive skin. I prefer MAC lip gloss because its better quality.

I ahve been searching for the perfect lipgloss and I have finally found it. This is a beautiful nude pink that looks fabulous on my highly pigmented lips. The consistency is fairly thick (which I like) and it is very moisturizing even when the color has worn off. It is pretty pricey ($19 CAD) but I will definitely repurchase this. Maybe I will check ebay for a better deal. :)

This is a very natural pink gloss that is almost the exact color of my lips. It has a little less shimmer than some of the other 100% natural glosses.

I was looking for something fresh and pink for spring. I love the 100% natural lip glosses from BE, I have several shades already but they are all quite shimmery and I wanted something a little more creamy. This is a nice shade of pink, very similar to my lips but a bit brighter. It seems to have some gold/champagne microshimmer in the tube, but it's not noticeable on the lips. Others have said this is a nude pink or brown-pink but too me it's more of a rosy pink. It's lighter, less brown and less shimmery than Rose (which I also have). Paired with some pink blush, I look more spring-like already!
I really like the formulation of these glosses. They are thick but not gloopy, moisturizing, and have a reasonable lasting time. I wish they were a little less fragranced--they all smell like donuts or cake and that's something I'm just better off not smelling!!! Although, there are worse smells I guess. This gloss comes with a brush applicator, which normally I don't like because I find them harder to control and I hate when the bristles splay. I've had no problems with the brush on these glosses, though.
Love the color and the formula.
A note about the price: normally these sell for $17 in Canada which is just way too much since I seem to be collecting these. I bought this one brand new off eBay for less than half of that.

Natural looking pink-beige gloss with great lasting power. A staple in my collection, it makes my lips look healthy and full and works with many looks. Would def. recommend and repurchase :)

I love the BE natural lipglosses because they are so luxurious and moisturizing. I tend to like more neutral colors but this can look really nice and it is longer lasting than some of the other shades.

I have two colors, Rose (a sample from Ulta) and this one. I would have to say that these are my favorite glosses, moisturizing and cushy feeling. Perfect for the cold and blustery weather coming up. The pink is a nude/pink which is perfect for everyday. I tried on Pomegranate, but found that it turned orangey on. This one stays a true, soft pink with little shimmer. Will buy again!

This is a great, natural gloss. It's even practically vegan, except that it contains carmine. I don't understand why natural glosses must contain carmine, but whatever.
The gloss comes in a very high-quality plastic tube with a soft, rubber handle that feels almost like velvet. It has a brush applicator, which is nice, but just a little too much product comes out on the brush.
The cupcake color is a perfect, nude pink, that accentuates natural lip color very well. The shine is medium intensity, and the gloss feels really good on, like a very emollient pillow on the lips. Hours later, when the gloss has worn off (which takes a while), the moisture is still there.
All the colors in this line are subtle and beautiful, and look classy. I would describe the colors in the line as versions of earthy and pink tones, none of them garish.
The gloss retails for $15. The price is too much for the amount of product you get, but the gloss is so pampering, it's worth treating yourself.

Let me just say that I'm not a fan of BE products in general. This gloss is perfect. It's a beautiful, neutral pinky-rose. I love the smell, too. It smells, well, like a cupcake. The packaging rocks because it's a brush applicator. I own this and Sugar Cookie (peachy pink) and I love both. Great formulas and very moisturizing.

LOVE this gloss!!
I never liked BE lip products in general, thier lipsticks are dry on my lips, the Buxom glosses sting too much, etc.
This gloss, however, is completely different than all the others in their line I've tried. This color, Cupcake, is the perfect pinkish rose color. I would say it straddles the line between a neutral and a pink, not too much either way. The gloss feels so good on my lips, keeps them moist for hours! I also own this in the Pomegrante, which is a deeper berry color, with hints of gold in it.
I just really love the formula, not sticky or slick, just smooth. Nice undertone smell of vanilla, but not too much of that either. I may buy this again two at a time!

I am always in search of the "perfect" lip gloss. I usually wear Buxom in Candy. I also use Lip Fusion. This new product from BE is really good. Very nice consistency and the brush applicator works great. The staying power is about as typical as other glosses. Cupcake is a nice natural color for summer. Your own lip color only better. I look forward to trying the other colors as well. This is a great lip gloss and the fact that it has natural oils and butters in it is a plus.

Love this color. I would say it's a very cute pink! I felt like my face was brighter wearing it. This lip gloss isn't as sticky as the Buxom glosses and contains more pigment. It's not high shine gloss...I would say a good middle between a lip stick and lip gloss. I love the scent "sweet, vanillaish, doughnuts." Has good staying power too. It's my new fave!
