I have this in Cherry. Whereas many glosses may look coloured and leave a clear coat, this actually delivers the colour that is in the stick!
I like the fact it is a wand, I like applying lipgloss with wands I feel like a fairy....
But yes, a lipgloss that gives a lovely deep red colour, is moisturising so is nice to re apply during the day. And it has a subtle sweet smell which, I know is personal preference but I like it!!!
I only wouldn't buy it again because my quest to try every lip gloss going is still on...

I received a mini-sized Pure Color gloss for free with my Estee Lauder purchase. I have this in the Passion Fruit shade which is a peach-pink shade which gives a subtle hint of colour to my lips.
What I like about this gloss is that it is not sticky at all. It glides well on my lips and does not feel heavy. The colour, while light, looks flattering on my oriental skin and despite my lips being acidic.
What makes this a winner is that it moisturizes my chapped lips quite well even after the gloss has faded. No chapping even hours after :)
Since the gloss is small, it fits perfectly into my small purse. I also love its gold detailing which makes it an elegant little item.

I have this in mini size and three colours. I love them. The gloss is pretty and delicious looking. It isn't sticky either. Just a bit pricey.

I received this as a gift along with the Michael Kors holiday set. I have to say Iím impressed! Itís super silky smooth, it doesn't dry my lips (the way my MAC lip glass has a tendency to), itís not sticky and it doesn't rub off on my teeth! I also love the subtle pinkish red color of Garnet Desire. Iíve added this to my must have glosses! The only drawback for me is the limited range of colorÖI usually use MAC lipglass on C-thru and LUST and I donít see anything remotely close to those colors in the Pure Gloss lineup. If they ever do get close to those HG shades of mine, I will certainly switch over!

I have this in Burgundy. What a nice lip product!!! Goes on easily and not too overwhelming. No need to cover this with lip balm or any kind of moisture and it wears well. It's so easy to use that I don't even need to use a mirror to apply it. Love this product!!!

My favorite gloss:) Its sooo smooth and pigmeted and looks great on everyone. it also moisturises your lips, so I dont need lip balm underneath. a huge plus, because my lips are really dry.
the staying power is super. last on your lips till you lick them or drink anything. I always buy these from www.cheapsmells.com because they only cost like 14 pounds. a bargin!:)

These are great. I have Rosebud (medium warm rose, no sparkles) and although I believe the color would look best on warm complexions I love the formula. So smooth, creamy, moisturizing, smells nice and sweet, applies effortlessly, lasts long, wears off evenly, in a nutshell: the perfect gloss!
I also have Rose Light (my favorite, medium rose with a hint of red and gold sheen) and Nectar Light (light peach with gold sheen as well) The texture is a little more runny and they smell like vanilla, lovely but limited edition.
Oh, and Berry Swirl, a chocolaty burgundy color, limited edition which smells well... chocolaty!
The packaging is stunning, sleek and luxurious. I look forward to get more shades!

My new HG of lipgloss. (Okay, along with Chanel.) Wow is this beautiful. I have it in Rock Candy (deep pastel pink/peach), and, thanks MUA for suggesting: Peach Sizzle. I put the latter on top of any berry lipstick and . . . just wow.
I typically steer clear of what look like shimmery, glittery, or prismatic lip glosses. Glad I listened to MUA. This gloss packs a punch, layers well, is not sticky, and adds gorgeous shine.

I have 2 of them from a Christmas set and love both of them. One is a natural lip colour with gold schimmer and the other is bright fuchsia. Both are lovely, last really well and wear nicely. Not sticky at all, smell and taste delicious.

I received this in the Shimmer formula, in the color Plum Divine. *In the tube* it looks so pretty. When I went to put it on I found it to be very sheer and disappointing, nothing like the color you see in the tube. Thankful that I didn't pay for this.

This is a review for #59 Twilight Petal Sparkle. Very pretty sheer nude with gold flecks. Adds lots of dimension to lips.. Can wear alone or over any lipstick... Not sticky, nicely packaged. I am a lip gloss JUNKIE.. and this is a staple for me ..

After a long search i found my HG lip colour product! I am head over heels in love! i cant believe how much money i've spent on drugstore products and chucked them out, well 10 times more than what i've spent on this miracle! i got this in the color "garnet desire" no.15, at first i was looking for a liquid lipstick but no other high-end company seemed to have the colour i wanted- a red which is not too bright, super pigmented and with gold undertones, not too glossy... this was exactly it. i find this gloss huge (a LOT of it in the tube which would last absolutely ages). the packaging is so chic and classy i would be delighted to take it out of my handbag in the ladies' to apply and make the girls jealous! i have light to medium toned skin with yellow undertones and hazel eyes, and this lipcolour makes ny whole face light up! it makes my eyes pop and the greenness in my eyes really stand out (odd, isnt it? didnt know a LIP GLOSS could do that! it is so pigmented you only need one layer as it is quite opaque, it is super moisturizing and stays on for hours and hours (thats without eating) and keeps moisturizing for the whole time. i often get flaky lips no matter how much balm i put on, but this hides any possible dryness on your lips and makes them look perfect. it smells like cherry pips and amaretto, which is heavy and fresh at the same time but happy, smells like absolute luxury (well, it is).

I give this product a 4 because the only setbacks with this product are the price ($18-$20, which is above and beyond what I'd normally spend, but I had a gift card for Macy's at the time) and the fact that it's sticky. But all hope is not lost, this is one of the best lipglosses I have ever bought. Most of the time, I go the cheap route (I work more often than anything else, don't usually wear a lot of lip stuff and I'm beyond picky when it comes to shades), but I got so frustrated with buying cheaper lipglosses that were not only sticky but I had to just go with what the shade looked like at the store and not trying it on first that when I got that gift card, I wanted to treat myself. What I love about Estee Lauder is you can go to any big department store and an associate will work with you to find a nice shade for you. The nice girl picked out Rock Candy for me, which is a lighter pink with a hint of gold shimmer. It's very pretty. I didn't get a chance to try any others because I was happy with this one, but looking on the site and seeing all the choices, there appears to be lots of similar looking colors as well. I'm glad there is a makeup line that has so many different colors. I have had the hardest time in the past because I'd buy a gloss that ended up being way too dark and dramatic, or too nude or light for me. This lipgloss is sticky, but I've never come across a lipgloss that isn't. I did find that even after eating and going out for a few hours, I still had some color remaining, so it's a good pick for longwear. Doesn't smell funny or perfumey. Despite being sticky, it does apply very easily, and you don't need very much.

I love rediscovering stuff and as part of my failed attempt at having a low/no buy 2011 I rediscovered these lovely glosses. My friend bought me a gift set of these glosses in miniature size.
What I like about them: colour selection is very good. I am wearing Almond today. A beautiful neutral brown colour that warms up my complexion nicely.
The way they feel on my lips. They are heavy but my lips feel super moisturised! (Usually they are flakey and cracked!)
Their durability: These are shiney and do not slip off like other lip glosses or even lipsticks I have tried in the past. They do not smear all over my face either! These last for hours and hours!
Some people might object to the smell - I think I read that EL lipsticks and glosses smell like fig. At first I didn't like it but now it's just a reminder I'm wearing EL.

This is the best lipgloss. It has awesome staying power and they have a perfect color for everyone. They have so many beautiful shades. I am more of a tan color and the color I chose is tempting tearose and it looks beatiful like this shade was meant for me. I would tell everyone to try them!

Love the color Raspberry pop! I am a medium olive complected Asian and this color is gorgeous.
It lasts for a really long time and although it's a thick formula, it's not sticky like MAC lip glosses. It's very moisturizing! Whatever you do though, do not blot with tissue--the lint will definitely stick!

I have three of these. so far, it's my favourite lip gloss. the smell is not irritating. it gives color. my favourite color is nude rose.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
My HG gloss. I have it in rosebud and it's just beautiful. It's nice and thick, so it's long lasting, but not sticky at all.
It gives off a lot of colour and shine, but still looks very natural and sohpisticated.
The scent is nice too and it feels amazing on my lips.
I will definitely purchase this again, and plan to pick up a few more colours when I get a chance!
I'll take a photo of it on me when I'm not at work and can upload it. It's beautiful - I can't recommend this enough.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily, Tan, Warm Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This is a good luxury lip gloss that I love to invest in time to time. I really do love the balmy gloss and so impressed how long lasting it is. I have several colors and I definitely recommend them.

So I was on the subway to work the other day and this pretty girl next to me whips out a tube of lipgloss, smears some on and wow - instant impressively gorgeous plump lips (come to think about it the girl kind of looked like model D. Kroes, so her lips were plump to begin with-oh well). Of course, before she puts it back in her purse I desperately try to catch a glimpse of what it is: it's a sleek tube with the EL logo on it, containing a very natural shade of sweet peachy pink. Naturally next time I hit the store - which was pretty much the next day - I had to hunt it down. It wasn't hard to find it really; it's the Pink Glaze shade. Despite the Ä 18 price tag I had to take it to the counter.
I don't regret it, because this is quite an awesome product. The shade is excellent; pretty much the pink I always look for and can't find exactly: slightly lighter, sweeter and peachier than MLBB. The gloss is really thick and concentrated but not too sticky and goes on semi - sheer but more opaque than most glosses I've tried. I'm guessing a darker shade could go on completely opaque. It also lasts a decent amount of time for a lipgloss, which probably has to do with it being so thick. The shade I have contains very fine glitter which you can't really notice unless you observe the tube closely. It gives a nice, glossy but classy finish.
The packaging is what you'd expect from a HE brand. Chic and expensive looking. The price tag is quite intimidating but well, I think this will last me quite some time as a little bit goes a long way (the thickness I already mentioned...). So I guess it's worth it, especially if you see it as a treat to your fabulous self. Yeah, we do deserve EL lipgloss ladies, take it from someone whose most expensive gloss before this had been Bourjois.
All in all I can't compare this to other HE stuff, for I've never had HE lipgloss before (and I probably won't again for a long time). However, if you can instantly fall in love with it on an other girl on the subway, I guess it has to be worth it.
P.S. Did I mention, this must be the first lip product I've tried so far that does not slip into the fine lines of my lips-not even slightly.
