Let me start off by stating how much I HATE lipgloss. But, I decided to give this one a chance because I loved the color. The color, for starters, is amazing! It's a brownish-warm pinky-mauvy type color and will compliment many skin tones. Now, about that texture... it is not sticky at all (my usual complaint about glosses) and it actually stays on! I definitely recommend this lip gloss.

This is great everyday gloss for me, seems to go well with any other blush or eye look. It gives a fresh, natural slick of neutral pink that doesn't turn mauve on my lips like a lot of glosses seem to do.
The doe foot applicator is much better than the old brush and the stickiness of this gloss is actually one of the reasons I re-buy it, I like the fact it lasts throughout the day without having to constantly reapply.

I got this gloss as part of the "Dress For Success" set available at Macy's. It's a mid-tone warm pink without any shimmer or glitter. I don't usually go for glosses like this (I typically like shimmery/pearly glosses) but have to say that I really do like this. I have pinkish lips already, and I find that this looks natural and just makes my lips look plump and pretty.
as others have said, this works well for all occasions, and you don't have to worry about it clashing or being over-powering. I did take off a lippie because the darn brush in all these BB glosses have a tendency to splay, and also, these are only like half the size of a Dior or Chanel gloss while being almost the same price.
if you find Buff too warm/orange, be sure to check out Petal. Overall, I would repurchase separately. For reference, I am NC20 in MAC, with dark hair and eyes.

What happened to my beloved Petal??? 12 years ago the Petal Bobbi made was a lovely sheer coral pink and now its a mucky warm pink with way too much beige-orange. Very sad.

I really love the color of this gloss. It's a gorgeous pinky nude that makes a great everyday staple or a great one to have in your bag because it will go with anything you put on that morning. In fact, I love all the colors of Bobbi Brown's glosses. I just have trouble with the formulation. You almost have to get it down to a science with these glosses in order to get the right amount so that it doesn't end up a goopy mess.
And the brush applicator brush. It sucks. No way around that. It looses its shape and becomes scratchy after a while. When I bought it, the SA used a foam tip wand to apply it and that was fantastic and really made a difference. I didn't know the applicator would end up being a brush.
It's hard because I love the color and will continue to use it but they really need to work on the stick factor and that applicator. Heck, other brands use brush applicators but they do it way better than BB (Bare Escentuals comes to mind).

Way too goopy and sticky. Better equivalents: Chanel Glossimer in Glow and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Nude Lustre. I love the small size of bobbi brown's glosses though.

I have bought about 5 tubes of this - a fabulous match for my fair skin, and full highly pigmented lips. It isn't about colour as much as lushness and in the end that is what we are all going for. The illusion that this is real. It is too expensive for the amount that you get. In fact the BB lip glosses fool you into thinking there is more there than there actually is. Before you know it the tube is nearly empty. But I will continue to purchase it because I haven't been able (yet) to find a comparable colour any where else. When I do I will buy it both as a gloss or a lipstick.

This is a lovely pinky shade of lip gloss, not over the top but just a natural looking color which I think will suit everyone (I'm of a tan complexion and this suits me as I'm sure it suits fair skin too). Looks very nice, the only thing I would complain about is the tube is tinyyyy and for £14 that's very expensive. Also the applicator is very strange, I've never used anything like it before and the bristles are already getting bent out of shape and I only bought it yesterday! Other than that the applicator does make it easier to make a more precise application to the lips, though doesn't do that good job of blending. Overall I love the colour and the gloss too, it's nice and thick and sticky so will stay on longer. Though I won't be buying it again as the amount you get is just not worth the price and I'm sure you can find cheaper versions that are almost as good!

Perfect pinky nude gloss for my NC45 complexion and pigmented lips. The gloss is very emollient and not tacky, and settles beautifully on the lips after a few minutes. Makes my lips look full! Great for darker skin gals - to pair with dramatic eyes or a natural makeup look. Will purchase again. H/e lost marks for price ($42 in Aust) and packaging (not the best value and brush doesn't reach bottom of tube, so impossible to get all the gloss out).

This is the perfect nude pink/peach for my fair complexion. The color is more perky than Bobbi Brown Buff. Makes my lips look very natural. I wear this color solo without a pencil or lipstick.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I really like this color, it's a nude/rose tone that is similar to my natural lip color but better. Like the other Bobbi Brown glosses, it has a somewhat sticky texture that makes it stay on longer but at the same time makes it a little uncomfortable to wear. I wish the brush applicator was changed to a regular doe foot applicator instead since I'm concerned about the brush splaying all over the place.

I adore this color! I usually apply it after applying nude lipstick since I have pigmented lips, and it always works so well with smokey/intense looking eyes. The only reason this lipgloss is not a 5 is b/c the brush applicator is horrible and the gloss itself is a bit too gooey for me. Except for that, wonderful product from BB. :)

Oh my goodness, this is probably my favorite lip gloss EVER. I cannot rave enough about Bobbi Brown's lip gloss, particularly in this shade. It is very difficult to find a pigmented, creamy lip gloss with no sparkle. Just true color. Plus Petal just such a gorgeous, wearable shade that still pops! (Runner up would be NARS Dolce Vita, however I prefer Bobbi's texture and brush). I also LOVE the texture. Some complain its too sticky, but I actually like that its thick because it is long-lasting!! Petal is just a lovely, rosy pink that is so creamy and pigmented!!

Gorgeous neutral pink. Bobbi is brilliant with lip colors- I can't find anything as good in any other line I've tried.
One trick to make the gloss feel less sticky: apply a lip balm first. I use Palmer's cocoa butter stick, which is INCREDIBLE! Having that on under the gloss makes a huge difference, and also makes it much easier to apply.

This is a HG lip gloss for me. A natural pink that has a great vanilla flavor that I love. It's a bit sticky and expensive but it lasts.

I've been using this for over 10 years, and I still love it more than any other gloss. It's a true pink that I think would work well with virtually any complexion. The tube is small, but because the gloss is quite thick and pigmented, you don't need a whole lot to cover the lips. It looks good worn alone, or over other colors. I used to wear it with Beech lip liner from The Body Shop, and I would get tons of compliments on it.

Tube is really small and i hate the brush. i prefer Chanel's sponge brush. The color is nice but generic. A Sheer pink. Formula is tacky/sticky to me. Will not repurchase.

Nice warmish color that helps neutralize the bluish/mauvey tones in my lips so they just look a pretty pink. No orange or tan cast like some other nude-pink glosses I've tried (MAC Lust comes to mind). I tend to ignore this for awhile then come back to it when everything else I have seems too overdone, then I'm reminded of how nice and wearable it is. I flip back and forth with Bobbi -- between hating her glosses for their crappy brush and stingy package size, and loving the colors too much to care. This one is a keeper, along with Rose Sugar and Sandy Beige. (Fair/light, neutral to warm; LM Beige Ivory/Stila C; dark reddish-brown hair and eyes.)

I got this in a BB gift set from CCO. I would describe it as a tangerine color not pink. I didn't use it for a long time because I didn't find it flattering (I'm NC20, pink undertones, blue eyes and brown hair with golden highlights)..but this summer I started using it over MAC Viva Glam IV lipstick and it's quite pretty..now that I have a little more color on my face. It has a nice smell and it is very very smooth not gritty, which I like. The splayed brush is kind of sloppy looks-wise but it does actually help to apply the product very well. Staying power is great.
