This is probably the worst gloss I have ever used. I have 'Intuitive' which is a light bubblegum pink with gold shimmer. The colour pay-off is incredibly sheer and doesn't show up on my lips. It wouldn't have bothered me since there are some glosses which are sheer that I like alot, but the formula is incredibly gloopy like a jelly (in texture). It applies unevenly, but also doesn't wear for very long either. Has a fruity scent and a doe-foot applicator. Luckily it was GWP because it's not worth my money.

Ahahaa, what a ridiculous product :) Kind of happy to see that nobody else liked it -- actually suspected I had gotten a faulty product.
What MaxFactor says (copied from their website): "This season's lips are glossy, glossy, glossy! Arm yourself with our slick new Vibrant Curve Effect Lip Gloss to put yours in the spotlight. Hot from backstage and tested by our top fashion make-up artists it's curvy applicator hugs your lips for a fuller, more curvaceous look. With its high shine, non-sticky formula and 10 new irrestible shades to try there's no excuse to fade into the background"
I normally don't copy product descriptions into my MUA reviews, but it was absolutely nothing like the claims. The gloss (and it's nothing like a gloss, or at least not what a gloss should be) does not, 1) give any color to your lips or 2) make them fuller in any sense. It's also *definitely* not high-shine -- in, fact it is barely noticeable on my lips. It contains some glitter but the amount is minimal. So don't expect it to look a little similar to YSL Golden Gloss (which I kinda did :). In order to notice it you have to slather in on -- but even then it's not "glossy glossy". Actually some lip balms produce more shine.
And also I think it was kind of expensive (not that it matter since I'll never buy it again, but do feel kinda sorry for spending my money on it)...especially since you have to use a lot, and you get very little product. Cannot comment on the lasting power since I can't really see it.
The smell was actually not too bad -- a little sweet, but I thought it smelled kinda "cheap", I don't know why. I have found *one* use for this product though: One of my lipsticks has a more matte finish. The color does not look good with a gloss on top IMO, but I think it's a little too matte for me so I've found I can use VCE on top of it to make it more semi-matte. I tried to do the same thing with a lip balm but it got too shiney...

you should not even bother getting it.. Not pigmented, it does nothing and there are many cheaper pruducts... which are better than this lipgloss.... I don't recommend it...

I hate this lip gloss.It is not longlasting and I do not like the way my lips look with it.I also do not like the packaging.

Bought this lipgloss on sale, but still a waste of money... Colour Dominant, but it is all but dominant, it's just a gloss with hardly any colour. Smells and tastes nice, but it hardly justifies the RRP of 12 euro. The good news is that I think they will discontinue it, as it is on half price sale everywhere.

I don't like this lip gloss at all. I have it in a beigy colour (I forget the exact colour), and it hardly shows up on my lips. I find that I have to apply it in several layers to get some colour on, and it doesn't last very long either. I agree with what someone else already said about the product leaking into the bag. I found that, after a few days in my bag, the more and more product started to leak from the tube. In addition, there is too much fragrance in the product. Won't repurchase.

I don't care for the applicator creating 'fuller lips', this is not what I purchased this for and I don't think it works.
I have this in the shade 04 Me Me Me which is a vibrant shimmery fuchsia in the tube. However this is NOT the case on the lips and the shimmer isn't even apparent. I gave this a 2 because it's inoffensive but it doesn't do what I wanted and it is totally unpigmented.
Plus P&G test on animals and this is something I am now trying to avoid, for this reason plus those above I would not repurchase, nor recommend.

I think I bought this in 'Vibrant' precisely because this is how it looked in the tube: bright and vibrant. How disappointing when I actually applied it. Hardly any colour pay off. I would have been as well with vaseline. The product is over priced - maybe not as expensive as other lipglosses but no better than cheaper brands. Guess I won't be repurchasing!

I have this product in Shade 03 Trend-Setter which is a warm pinkish nude shimmer.
What I liked about it:
-pleasant fruity fragrance
What I hated about it:
-the packaging is horrible with the product eventually making its way to the outside of the tube. It left stains inside my make-up bag which I couldnt wash out. It's for at-home application only, standing in vertical position in my drawer.
