I must admit I'm enthusiast for D&G glosses because of their amazing fragrance. They smell almost exactly like Kenzo Flower (or, if you're more into higher brands, Keiko Mecheri White Petals). So warm and wintery!
The glosses are decent and I like the glittery but not gritty particles. As with all glosses, unfortunately my lips remain a litl bit dry when I take them off, but overall, these glosses are worth the bucks.

This is a fun take on nude and I'm wondering if this was named with a little humor in mind. It's nude alright, but not in the pale/fleshy/subdued pink/beige/neutral tradition that most nudes seem to fall under. This is mostly clear with all of its color deriving from the micro-fine shimmer. While at first glance in the tube it looks like glitter, close inspection reveals that its actually too minute to be actual glitter particles. I can't even feel it on my lips as I would with any other glittery gloss. The shimmer is a mixture of baby pink, peach, and gold. It reads as warm toned once its on and the shimmer doesn't look garish or tacky at all.
The finish is very shiny and rich. It's thinner than a Chanel Glossimer, but still has the same slightly sticky feel (which is good so it lasts). This feels most similar in texture to the Dior Addict Ultra Glosses. I'm not a fan of thick glosses because they make me feel like I'm wearing an unnatural coating on my lips, so I appreciate the lightweight feel of this one.
The fragrance reminds me of violets, sort of powdery and feminine. Luckily not as rampantly perfumey as their lipsticks. It smells almost exactly like Guerlain's Meteorites Face Powder. I notice it right out of the tube but I don't really smell it so much once it's on my lips.
The color itself may not seem extremely unique given that its really just shimmer suspended in clear gloss. But the color is actually very beautiful and well done. Plus the quality of the gloss itself is so refined that it raises the level even more. I have a few Glossimers that have a similar glitter-in-clear-gloss appearance and the shimmer is not nearly as packed in there as this one is. I'd repurchase if and when I run out.

I am biased by the excellent shopping experience my MUA pals and I had at the SF Saks 5th Ave D & G counter today. We tried out tons of makeup under the benevolent eye of an enthusiastic SA. I left with this lipgloss to add to my huge collection.
It is a sheer sparkly pale peachy pink, with a glorious smooth texture. Not too sticky or watery. Great over any lipstick or on its own.
If you're in The City, cruise by the counter and play.
