Love this gloss... Well ok, it's a tiny bit too glossy for me, it's so pigmented and covers brilliantly, but, as I said too glossy (having super glossy lips just makes me look daft), so I put a bit of mineral veil on my lips to tone it down, and, my god does this stay on my face or what?!
Too glossy for me

This product is amazing - when first applied. It's smooth, is super duper opaque, it doesn't irritate or dry out your lips, it doesn't have any weird annoying smell, it stays for quite a while and there's a noticable stain even after u're done eating.
But it bleeds, after around 2 - 3 hours, especially if you wear a strong color like Strength, the bleeding lip color is even more obvious. Also, it transfer immediately, and a lot, to whatever your lips may touch.
This lipstick is beautiful, but it its not practical for daily use. I wouldnt recommend this.

This is a great lip product and I hope they don't discontinue it. The formula is between a lip gloss and a lipstick. They offer a wide range of colours so there should be something for everybody. I recommend!

They do come in nice colors. However, I am just not a big fan of the smell of them. They smell too artificial.

The best lipstick/lipgloss I've ever used. Love it!!

I bought this colour in Moxie which is a hot barbie pink that I use over a sheer pink lipstick. My lips are often on the dry side and I wouldn't recommend using this as a straight lip colour if your lips are in the same condition. Over a lipstick it works perfectly! I have to buff over the application with my finger tip to give a more blended softer look. I do have to apply frequently through out the day but it is such a charming, out-there colour that it is worth it!!

I received a sample of "confidence" (a very natural looking raspberry pink color on me) a month or so ago when I went to Sephora. I first used this on a day when I tried to put on lipstick, but it just looked disgusting, my lips were dry and cracked no matter how much lip balm I had on, and my lips were dry, cracked, and uneven in color. I have a bad habit of picking or chewing off the dead/dry skin on my lips. Since the lipstick looked awful I immediately took it off and decided to try this, as I assumed it was a liquid lipstick. I LOVED it. I don't use the applicator it comes with, it puts down WAY too much product. I use a lip brush and use a thing layer to coat my entire mouth and leave a stain like color. This stuff is very opaque, even with the small amount I used, you couldn't see the uneven color of my lips, you couldn't see the cracks, it felt so soft, and moisturizing. And it lasts a long time. I use this so much, and I still have a lot of sample left. I'm definitely going to get the full size of this color and maybe one or two more.
UPDATE; LOLOLOL I now have like all but 3 of them. And I love them all. I might not buy another regular lipstick again.

I got this today from the BE boutique near Covent Garden and all I can say is WOW!! I have this in the colour witty which doesn't seem to be sold as widely in the UK. I honestly can't think of a good reason why BE would hide this colour from ASOS or QVC, its a plummy merlot that is perfect for autumn. I have already eaten with it and had a cup of tea and I can say that it wears down nicely to a stain. I will be wearing this most days this winter as a stain (maybe with some gloss over it) and in full colour when I go out.
The applicator is very good for creating an outline but it is flat, wide and flexible like a fuzzy paddle - not a problem if you have wide lips like me but troublesome if you have a smaller pout. This can be easily remedied with a lip brush but for the money spent I can understand the frustration.
Very little other make up is needed with this strong a colour and personally I couldn't be happier I will be going back for the colours allure (peachy cream) and savvy (dark nude) which also dont seemed to be sold from the usual outlets.

I don't like this lip color product. I have 4 of these Pretty Amazing Lip Colors because I received the BE TSV from QVC in 2010 where I received a quarterly set of mineral e/s, blush, veil, eye liner, mascara, and along with these lousy lip products.
The colors are nice, and I am not going to complain there (even though I don't like 1960's pink lips because my lips are too deep for that contrived look.)
But the goopy, glopy, smelly formula of the actual product just plain stinks! I don't like how this lip product applies becuause it goes on choppy and uneven and unneccesarily thick. I don't like how you have to wipe the wand and clean it up because the wand comes out so messy! And I mean messy! The product gets a bad smell after 4 months and then you need to toss a.s.a.p. They are not pretty amazing, in fact, they are pretty lousy.
I like BE for alot of their products, and I love their Buxom Lips line, but I will not buy the Pretty Amazing line in the future.

I got a sample of this in Confidence, a dark kinda-blue red. It's a creamy lipstick-lipgloss combo. Not sticky. At least this color sn't streaky. I don't know about the other colors. The staying power is decent. I had to retouch it after eating. It may look less shiny with the hours. I don't have any problems with the sample applicator. I can contour my lips just fine (I assume the real thing is going to be the same or better). It doesn't have a weird smell or parabens. I'm happy with it. I'll buy the full size and more colors, though I've seen on the internet that they don't have a lot of colors to choose from.
