I saw a girl wear it and it looked absolutely gorgeous so I went and bought one myself. It looks amazing: it makes your lips look plump& glossy. The color looks kinda brown in packaging but its actually nude red. It's a gentle but pigmented nude and it will look great on anyone's lips. The only thing I hate is the stickiness it feels kinda gross but I don't care because it looks amazing. The smell might bother some people, but it doesn't bother me.

Oh.My.Goodness. Color me surprised! I've tried maybe three of these Color Sensational glosses, and this is the ONLY one that actually smells quite divine! It IS toffee, and it doesn't smell artificial at all, and provides a juicy, fresh, medium pinky-brown color that is actually quite pigmented for a cheapo d/s tubed gloss! I'm just now throwing out my tube, because it's about 75% used up, and it was getting a bit old. I bought this upon recommendation from my fave YT beauty guru emilynoel83, and could not be happier. This is the only shade from the line I WILL repurchase (it would be even better if I found a sale though! :D), as the other two I've tried just turn up clear on me. Not sticky enough for me, though, as it affects the staying power, but I do like the consistency. It doesn't feel oily or greasy on the lips like most drugstore glosses. Definitely can say I recommend this, if you find it on sale!

I am pretty surprised I liked this color. It looks pretty dark in the tube but I had read a few reviews on this line and usually they say its not as dark as it seems in the I'm glad I read that...cause I would have missed out!
I love this color its almost like my lip color, it enhances my lips and gives a nice subtle shine. I love how it comes out very light and not at all as dark as it looks. It makes my lips look perfect and not to overly done up so it doesn't interfere when I do dramatic eyes :)
Smell is a little strong but I don't mind. It does go away after a short while and the lasting power is normal for a basic gloss. Its not overly drying which is a major plus. Defiantly will repurchase.

This is a gorgeous natural looking flesh toned pink. I love the slight toffee flavor. This gloss makes me look and feel happy! It's not sticky, and it doesn't dry out my lips. I will definitely purchase again.

I love the way this smells! It's sweet and doesn't have an artificial taste. It's a pretty natural pink brown shade with no shimmer or sparkle. It applies nicely but is tad sticky, but not overly so. On my pigmented lips, it doesn't show up the color in the tube. I was expecting an opaque shade but this goes on very sheerly, so I was pretty disappointed. It's still pretty nonetheless but I am not sure if I would have paid $6 for a glorified lip balm-gloss. If it was on sale, I could have justified the price and then it may be worth it. But I am on the fence. I don't know whether or not I would repurchase because the other colors did have fine shimmer, which I don't like on my lips. If they had a darker color with no shimmer, I would give that a go if it was on sale.

I like this gloss and the color, but I don't like the smell! I know others say it smells like pancakes, but I don't smell that. Instead it smells like play-doh. The smell doesn't linger long, but I just cant stand it initially. I won't repurchase.

I love super glossy/shiny gloss so I bought ShineSensational in this shade. The coverage is on the sheer side but still delivers mauvey pink tint. It smells so delicious and not sticky like Clinique Lip Smoothie. And my lips look almossy glassy. So buying this over&over again =D

I love this gloss! I've been wearing this one ALOT lately. The colour is not too sheer and is a good MLBB (My Lips but better) shade on me. Not very sticky and smells really nice. I've already purchased another tube because I'm scared that they will discontinue this shade. It has just enough shimmer in it for my liking and doesn't feel gritty. Staying power is average, but that's fine with me. Nothing bad to say about it. :)

This is one of my new favorites. I love that it gives a good amount color but it's not so opaque that it needs to be worked in with a lipbrush. The tone is so beautifully neutral. I can see this working on everyone. It's particularly good if you are fair because it sort of brightens up your face, making it a nice departure from typical nude glosses I normally wear. I also like that it's a straight up cream with no shimmer or sparkles.

this is a great little lipgloss! It gives the perfect natural look to my lips, with just enough color to cancel out the natural blue-ish tone my lips have and just a little shine that's not super sticky. this gloss is pretty thin, but is still long wearing. I think it's perfect for when I'm going to be out a long time and don't want to worry about touching up. it's also the perfect counterpoint to strong eye makeup, b/c it's so light and barely there. I think I have 3 of these now, so that I always have one with me.
