This is a pretty color, slightly shimmery rose pink, sheer when applied. No taste or scent that I can detect.

The first time I used this (I had a sample) I thought it was nothing special. Then I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror and noticed that my lips looked plumper and healthy (no cracking or peeling). The color enhances my pigmented lips but still looks natural, and the shimmer makes my lips look fuller. I immediately purchased a full size of this.

The only bad thing I can say about it is that I don’t like a brush applicator with a gloss, I much prefer a wand. This color is perfect for me and I like the way it looks natural yet polished. I am already looking into purchasing more of these glosses in other colors.

My new NEW favorite (I always have a new fav gloss :) the color is divine (it's very "Bobbi" pink with that little bit of brown) great over all my lipsticks or by itself or layered with another gloss. And this gloss last several hours before you need a touch up. I'm mad I only have one color ... Get Rose Sugar its amazing

I lov the color and you have to apply over lipstick for the shine and shimmer to show. I also love the vanilla scent. Its divine! It lasts all day doesnt bleed or feather over lipstick despite the hot climate. The consistency is thick so it lasts and lasts. It comes in a small tube yet its so pricey. I have tried the white and ruby shimmer and really love them but have to add that BB is expensive and thats my only problem with BB products.

I was recommended this at the Bobbi Brown counter after one of their wonderful makeover sessions - I hadn't worn lip gloss before but this more muted but shimmery shade of pink suited my pale skin and red-brown hair perfectly.
After purchasing the product I tried it out myself - not such a great result! The nail polish style brush was pretty ineffective so I ended up skipping that and applying it with my finger (although I understand this has now been altered to a more manageable one) and the gloss was much too gloopy and sticky for my liking - I can't stand my hair constantly sticking to my face! The gloss got even stickier the longer I had it and eventually turned into a glue-like consistency after the 6 month mark. However the colour is gorgeous with just the right amount of shimmer.
I've found plenty of more effective glosses for £2 and under - in the UK this retails for £17 which is steep for the small amount of product you get - I won't be buying again when there are much cheaper alternatives that work better for me! This would be great for anyone who prefers a thicker gloss and doesn't mind a sticky formula, especially on fair skin and dark red/brown hair as it's such a lovely, universally suited shade of gloss.

The color is nice, I understand that it has to be sticky to get a longer lasting effect, but....the size of this lipgloss is not even the size of my pinky! It is 3/4 the size of my pinky!

I thought the testers were just tiny because they were testers. When I got home and saw that it was actually the size they were selling I could not believe it. I'm outraged and shocked. Picture how tiny that is for $22.00 WTH?

Edit: As of 08/2011 they have repackaged this lipgloss to be a full-sized gloss, and taken away the hideous nail polish-type brush and replaced it with a more traditional brush. This change is welcomed and long overdue.

This is one of my favorite lip glosses out there--the texture, the shade, the wearability...I love it! I just hate the stupid brush that it comes with--come on Bobbi, you can't come up with a better applicator? REALLY?
And for the price, you don't get a lot--another drawback, but not a deal-breaker. I would repurchase, b/c I've never found a close enough shade (btw, it's a light, neutral, shimmery peachy-pink that looks great on anybody) that wears as well as this one. I heart Bobbi Brown!
UPDATE: Ok, I guess I can stop complaining about the lame brush applicator cuz Bobbi has replaced it with a doe-foot applicator! Rock on, BB.

My all time favorite lip gloss. It has the perfect balance of staying power to stickiness. There is a subtle pleasant scent and taste to it. The only reason I wear anything else is because I get bored of wearing this one shade. I always get compliments on it and friends have asked to try it on right after seeing me wear it LOL

I really, really, like this lip gloss. It is a great color that goes with anything and it nice on its own. I purchased this two years ago and when I had trouble getting the remainder out of the tube I tossed it into my super large makeup basket in my bathroom. Today, I felt like my lipstick was a little dry and needed some gloss. I usually use Bobbi brightening gloss in pink, but I rummaged around and pulled this out. I was able to scape enough out to use. I loved the result. I went straight to Nordstrom and bought a new one. It is a flattering natural look.

Didn't intend to get BB lip glosses as I have many! Tried Stila, MAC, Revlon, Biotherm, Marjorlica etc etc. brands but this one, i like it above them all! V awesome neutral rose shade, pair on top of a neutral lipstick it's awesome. However, i just discovered CD Ultra-Gloss and I like that effect over this, even those i like BB's color, and brush just as well but took a lippie off for the finishing compared to CD's!
