I have two of these. It goes on clear. I do like how it looks on my lips but maybe I would use it on top a lipstick till it is all finished. I do not plan on repurchasing really.

I only have one, its a nude, metallic beigy shade. It has a slant tip which is the best applicator for gloss because you can deposit a decent layer on your lips in one swipe. It has nice consistency, no off putting scent nor sticky texture. I have bought glosses before that were so pretty but I could not use them because the scent or taste was objectionable. This gloss isn't opaque, yet not truly clear on me. Its a very cool nude that is swipe and go, no mirror needed. Its also a nice highlighter over lipsticks, especially darker shades. I got this at a discount store for 99 cents. I don't know if I'd repurchase at full price because I have so many lip glosses I'd prefer to use up before they become rancid but it is a nice product, good on its own for summer.

Its a pretty average lipgloss when it comes to how long it lasts, stickiness, etc.. Nothing to write home about. However, I love the shade "starlight shimmer." It is a peachy color with a hint of pink and some subtle shimmer. It is a great shade to wear over a completely nude lipstick. It also has a nice taste.

It was pretty slick, and slightly sticky, and the scent was pleasant. Just not something I'd buy over and over again. Average, generic lipgloss.

Cheap and cheerful! I found this in Poundland for a £1 funnily enough! lol. The shade I have is 'Coral Glitz' and it suits my fair colouring very well. The formula is smooth and easy to apply - I haven't found it to be too sticky, or too slippery. It gives my lips a gorgeous pop of colour, and I'm glad I bought it... I can see it becoming a staple in my makeup collection.

I have this in 804 rasberry. It is a reddish colour with pinkish undertones (a genuine rasberry colour). When I firsth got this the product had seperated, when I went to use it a clear gloss came out - which each use the liquid became redder. In the end I decided to squize it out onto a tissue until the clear liquid was the colour represented in the tube (lucky I didn;t waist to much product). Since I have done that the gloss has stayed a reddish colour. Not sure if this was a mistake or if this is a common occurance
I love the colour it is an intense colour that goes on suprisingly opaque for a gloss. I glides on with the help a the tip applicator (this does get very sticky and dirty - before use i clean it with a tissue).
To test how long and good a l/g or l/s stays on I have invented a new little test. I have a good 15 min cycle to the train station every morning. Usually it is always very windy (in summer and winter). If the l/g or l/s is still perfect when I get there it has past the test imo ------->>> this stays on amazing I had this on yesterday and it didn't budge, fade or dry my lips out. It has passed the test cause my hair doesn't stick to it yay
a nice berry colour for winter and summer it goes nice with neutral or purple e/s

This stuff smells amazing, looks great and doesnt feel sticky at all. i love the price as well, my only complaint is that it doesnt last long (i get about 20-30 minutes of wear)

Probably my favorite lip gloss to date. The angled tip applicator is my preferred method of easy use. It comes in so many great colors and if I recall correctly, it was pretty reasonably priced, too. It feels a little too thick and sticky sometimes, though.

Terrible product. Thin consistency and is off within minutes. Waste of money!

Love this gloss! I have it in a few different colors and like that it glides on so smoothly. The flavor isn't over powering but I can't place what it is exactly. Nice colors and super cheap which is also something I like.

Currently i have three different shades, and they are all sheer, glossy, and have a nice smell and taste. Also the tubes and the slanted applicator are nice and don't get messy too easily. I bought them all on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart for $4 each, and the Shinylicious glosses often go on sale there. They also aren't sticky, and even though the staying power isn't fantastic, I don't mind reapplying often.

What it Claims:
"• Gives lush shiny color to lips
• Ultra-lightweight feel and glass-like shiny finish
• Get precision application with the exclusive flock tip
• Juicy shades and flavour names
• Glass-like shiny finish with light to medium coverage
• Allergy tested and dermatologist tested"
Claims - True or False?
1) Shiny colour: True. The glossy finish is quite light. I find that applying more layers increases the shine.
2) Lightweight feel: True. It is felt on the lips but does not feel uncomfortable.
3) Precision application: More or less. I still end up getting some gloss outside my lip line, but this will likely differ for others depending on lip size.
4) Light to medium coverage: True. This product does NOT offer opaque full coverage, but is easily buildable.
Aesthetically, it's very simple and straight-forward, providing you with the name of the company and flavour. It comes in a transparent plastic tube, allowing you to see the shade and the amount. The caps are the same colour as the gloss itself, which provides a nice uniform look. Biggest con, lack of ingredients list. The ingredients are not listed on the website either.The tube design ensures you can use up all of the gloss. The applicator tip that is on all of my recent tube is plastic, but I find it is slightly too big for my smaller lips. The website claims they have a felt tip applicator, which I've had in the past, and preferred the smaller size. However, they both worked pretty much the same and smoothly apply the gloss.
Although they are not overpowering, I find that they have an odd "after smell", which is not present in every flavour. So, if odd smells are a big deal for you, sniff before purchasing. The scent is faint enough that it isn't noticeable while wearing. The fragrance seems to match that of the taste however - smells odd, tastes odd. If you are a notorious lip-licker, perhaps skip these glosses.
Not too thick, not too watery, not too sticky. The formula applies evenly, and because of the consistency, it fades evenly and lasts at least a few hours. Because they are not very opaque, reapplying does not cause the lips to look overly tinted or caked. The gloss is very smooth, which allows the product to be applied evenly without tugging at the lips. Although not terribly sticky, if you are a fan of watery or thin glosses, you may find the glosses to be too sticky.
I've had past tubes with glitter in them, but I do not know whether those have been removed from the line or not. Most seem to have a pearlized finish, which makes them great for day wear.
Ease of Use:
On smaller lips, it may be slightly difficult to ensure it does not escape the lip line, but other than that, there are no application issues. The tube itself provides a good amount of friction so that it's unlikely to slip, and the plastic is soft enough to allow easy dispensing without causing too much to come out at once. Layering is easy if a more glossy/opaque look is desired, but there is no issue when wanting to apply a sheer amount. The cap twists on and off in a few seconds. Because it is thinner and not very sticky, removal is very simple, and can easily be done with a kleenex.
Bang for your Buck:
For those that love buying glosses, the price of this product definitely justifies purchasing as many as you'd like. They are about the size of the average gloss, and can easily last a year or longer with regular use. Drug stores often hold BOGOS and discounts, so the glosses will generally be under $10.00. And if you dislike the gloss, they can be returned, and if they aren't returned then it's not a huge loss money-wise.
Being a gloss junkie, I'm always out on the lookout for good deals on glosses. I've been a fan of this brand for at least 3 years, and they are still ranked up there with my more expensive brands. There are various shades (On the American website, I only counted 9 shades, while the Canadian site listed at least 15. The amount of shades offered may be different in all countries), and while they are not the perfect gloss, they are definitely worth trying. If you are a fan of full coverage lip products, this will not be for you, but for those that want something simple that can be thrown on without any thought, these may possibly be for you.
Overall Rating: 4 - 4.5/5

I love this gloss! I have it both in the raspberry and lolly pink colors. Not too sticky, feels great and makes lips look shiny and just a little more colorful than usual.

I have two of these glosses in Golden Peck, which is a pure shimmery gold, and Pink Hurricane, which is a sparkly light pink. They are both really pretty colors for such a cheap lip gloss! Usually the color selection consists of a coffee brown, a clear, and a red. Not the most flattering shades out there! But these two are very nice, along with a bunch of other shades from this collection. The lasting power is average for a lip gloss, but quite impressive for this brand and price! It lasted at least an hour, which for me, is a miracle. The scent of these kind of fit the shade of them. The pink one has a fruity scent, and the gold one smells a bit like caramel. Another plus about these is that they show up JUST like they look in the tube. Golden Peck actually shows up as a metallic gold, instead of an icky brown/yellow. In conclusion, these glosses are great, but not much of anything TOO special; get them on sale or a deal!

I'm not a lip gloss girl. Either they're too glossy, or super sticky. However, this product (I bought Raiz'n Razzle) is wonderful! It's not super glossy and the texture is really nice and smooth. The one I have is the "new" version with the smooth tip applicator. There are some sparkles mixed into the product, which are super tiny but they really give your lips a nice shine!
I don't know why some people say this product is too sticky... When I rub my lips together they don't stick, but there'll be occassions where the wind blows and a few strands are stuck. Expectant of a lip gloss though! Will definitely repurchase.

I love these! I have them in few shades and I really love them! Maybe *too* sticky, but I don't mind. The color payoff is really good, they smell like candy and I love the packaging!
You get really great stuff for only few $. :)

I was curious about this glosses and actually went on ebay and got a lot of 9 of these things. I paid abt the price I would have paid for one alone, so I thought it was a good deal. I knew they would be sheer, but I wasn't expected them to be *so* sheer. I also noticed a lot of commets abt it being sticky - if anything I thought the gloss was sorta runny. I had to squeeze out the liquid/oil that had separated from the gloss. I tried abt 8 different shades, and honestly they all looked the same on me. I'd almost prefer them to be a little more sticky so that the staying power would be more than 2 seconds. If you're thinking abt buying, I'd only purchase during sale/clearance. There are other drugstore glosses that do more.

I LOVE this gloss! I bought it in Raiz'n romance (although I can't find anything on the internet about this color and the packaging doesn't look like anything else I've seen on the internet - the tube is clear with sheer white at the top and an iredescent white lid that's the same width as the base of the tube). It reminds me alot of the Victoria's Secret Beauty Sush lipglosses, the texture is nice and smooth and goes on thick without being sticky and has alot of silver and pink shimmer. The scent/flavor is also great, very fruity but in a nice way. I would buy this again and I will definitely be buying mroe of these glosses.

like these lip glosses. all the colors are nice on me without oil-like on my lips, no dryness, not too sheer or anything. i also like the applicator so soft and precise.

If you don't mind super sticky lipgloss this is for you. I loved the sweet smell and taste but the stickyness was overwelming for me. Also, it took a lot of gloss to get any color and shine (if any). L'Oreal's Color Riche lipgloss lacks in smell and taste but it is a whole lot less sticky. I prefer L'Oreal over this one.
