I have a lot of lip gloss. Like, a lot. I am almost embarressed to admit that I have well over 100. I discovered this fantastic gloss in Las Vegas over 2 years ago, and have bought maybe 5 since then (a record for me). It is the only gloss that I keep going back to. It is in my purse every single day. I have fair, freckly skin and slightly pigmented lips. This light, shimmery pink is the perfect nude shade by itself. If I wear heavier eye makeup, I always pair with this gloss. Beige nude lips always make me look dead. I always like the look on others but just couldn't do it myself until I discovered this! In addition to wearing it alone, I also layer it over raspberry stains, plum stains, or bright pink stains. I sometimes layer it over dusty pink lipsticks or lip liners too. It is so versatile that it seems to go with just about everything! And, it is the perfect amount of silvery shimmer. It isn't too shimmery for the office, and it looks fantastic on a night out. If you have $27 to spend on a lip gloss, I would try this one!
Oh, and one more very important detail: You never get the dreaded clumps of solidified gloss. It isn't sticky and wears off evenly, so when its gone, it's gone. I would take that any day over chunks of old gloss left in the corners of my mouth. (this means you, Chanel)

My new favorite gloss! The subtly shimmery pink somehow looks soft with a hit of bright prink color on my lips. The consistency is wonderful; not too thick or goopy. My hair doesn't even get stuck in it! It feels great on lips. Will probably use this for the rest of my life.
I can't believe what a perfect shade this is for me, and what a high-quality gloss this is.

To get this beautiful warm candy pink to show up on my deeply pigmented lips true to color I first apply BB Uber Beige lipstick, then put this gloss on top. I love it. The shininess lasts a while and the color is adorable. great wand too, the brush doesn't splay like BB l/g brush wands do. Worth $26? If you try it and love it and plan to actually use it up, then i suppose yes. Try getting it during a F&F sale or something. Maybe try ebay. $26 is a lot for a sheer pink l/g.

I got this today and am in love with it. Lip Shimmer #9 is a cool-toned medium-bright pink with a touch of mauve and silver microglitter. It reminds me of NARS Catfight lipstick in the form of a lipgloss, or a more wearable, much pinker version of MAC Cultured lipglass. It's moisturizing, with a nice amount of shine, and long-lasting. These come in sleek tubes with a brush applicator. Picture in profile.

Quite a nice gloss. But just a gloss.

a gorgeous pink shade - dont be scared off by how it looks in the tube as its a bit scary i have to admit. but on lips, it transforms into a lovely soft pink - i cant really wear pinks easily as it doesnt really look natural with my colouring but this one is definitely a keeper :D

This is my saviour lipgloss that I wear when I don't know what else to wear and don't want to waste too much time deciding. It goes with everything. Sheer, lovely pink with subtle shimmer. As with all GA glosses, the quality and texture is great.

GA lip shimmer is an OK lipgloss for me ... it is decent, but not my favourite. I find the shimmer a tad too chunky and the formula a little bit drying on my lips, I always find my lips peel a little when I wear this. It gives a nice finish and I love the brush applicator ... I just think the formula isn't the most compatible to my skin. #9 is a nice cool pink shade and is the only shade that I have ... I am a huge fan of pinks, but if there was a shade that was similar but ever so slightly more muted, I would have liked it more as this one can look quite bright some days. I could probably try to use it up, but won't be buying it again.

Fabulous shimmery pinkish shade that goes with everything (my clothes/ whatever makeup i applied that day / whatever lipcolour i have on)...a no-brainer colour. On my pigmented lips, this actually just enhances my lips & gives me very pouty, luscious, wet, sexy lips...kinda like those erm swimwear models lips. Love the lipbrush applicator but i noticed that a lot of gloss comes out. No taste or smell (big yay for ultra-sensitive me), not very sticky lipgloss that feels so comfortable like you arent wearing anything at all...

Apart from RMK lip gloss, GA lip shimmer is my favor one. The texture is great and very pigment but a little bit reddish for my PPP skin tone. I like more pinkish so will try other color definity.

GA Lip Shimmer #9 is a sheer candy pink with tiny shimmery silver sparkles. The texture is not sticky at all and it provides a gorgeous glossy finish! It also has a wand type brush rather than a sponge which I despise. The gloss lasts for a fairly decent amount of time considering that it's not thick, sticky or clumpy in any way. I probably have at least 100 pink lip glosses and I would definitely re-purchase this one.

A cool-toned pink with silver shimmer, this color is so girly and pretty. I'm a cool to neutral PPP and this is just brilliant on me. If you're looking for a sweet, delicate, high quality, blue-based pink gloss, look no further. Armani has a silky, smooth texture and I've decided that I much prefer it to a goopy gluelike gloss. While thicker glosses do last longer, they often leave behind tacky residue on lips. Cause this is a thinner, slicker gloss it ends up looking better as you can keep reapplying it smoothly, and it's a pleasure to reapply, esp. with the nifty brush tip.

$25.00 for .20 oz Is it worth it? My answer would be "no" although its a very good gloss. My favorite part is the very pointed brush tip. I have several brush wand lipglosses but none are tappered to such a fine point so that the gloss will go on with *such* precision. My main beef is with the color selection. There were probably 15 colors to choose from but I really only liked about 2 of them for my C4 complexion. Most of them were these metallic shades which is not at all my thing. #9 is a sheer cool shimmery pink; its much cooler than anything I would usually buy but they were out of #12 which is a peachier pink. On my dark pigmented lips, the gloss barely shows up as a pale shimmery pink but when glossed over a neutral lip liner, it gave me a 1960s Mod Look which I liked. For those who like their lipglosses unscented, these lip shimmers have not even the slightest scent. I did notice that I had some sprinkles left on my lips after the gloss was mostly gone, just like with most drugstore sparkly lipgloss. [sigh]

GA lip shimmer is very long lasting in terms of lipgloss. I don't retouch for at least half day after talking & drinking. It's not too sheer & sticky. Definitely going to get more colour.

This is a shimmery cool tone light pink. I feel in love with after my first try. The texture is not sticky at all yet provide glossy finish. I can use this lipgloss alone to get a natural pink glossy lips and it looks good over any lipcolors. Love the unscented formula too. The packaging gets full marks from me as the the wand type is a brush and not a sponge. It reminds me of my RMK glosses which has the same brush design and same texture but RMK is more watery while GA is more well pigmented.

This is currently the lipgloss I reach for the most. Brilliant shade of pink with shimmer, and it goes on smooth and shiny. Even re-applying it midday is a breeze - I didn't need to buff my lips and the gloss doesn't clump up like others did. And I love the brush. It makes for such precision, and the control as it applies the gloss is superb. High quality and well worth the price. Looking to buy more colors.

Armani's cosmetics are my favorite b/c they're so high quality and long lasting. Classic packaging and worth every penny of the higher end price. This color looks pretty on me no matter what I decide to wear with it as far as eye makeup or blush goes. It always looks fresh and fun, even if it's all I decide to put on in the morning. I love the texture, the subtle sparkle, and the brush applicator. I'll always carry this with me!

One of my favorite colors! It's a nice candy-pink with the tiniest silvery sparkles. Not sticky at all, which is something I really hate in lip gloss! Goes on smoothly, no taste, and gives such a nice shiny finish! I love the lip shimmers, and this one gives a lovely pouty-innocent-ish look!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
First off I like to start off by saying that although this gloss is expensive, it is well worth it. Perfect candy pink lip gloss! Def gives a great pink color to your lips
