Looks like Elmer's glue in the tube but works miracles to tone down too-bright lip colors and make them wearable. Unfortunately my tube developed a rancid, paint-like smell a few months after buying. This is the first time this has ever happened to a BB gloss of mine. It's puzzling since I have others that are much older than this one. I can't bring myself to throw it in the trash, though, because I just noticed that it is no longer being made. Too bad. I'm guessing BB SAs didn't do enough to help customers figure this one out since it doesn't look like anything most people would ever buy or even try on their own. But if they did, they would have seen how useful it was. Grab it on eBay if you can, and hope you get a relatively fresh one. (Five lippies for color, one off for the rancid smell and another off for the bad brush applicator and stingy amount for the $20 price.)

I today purchased my second tube of BB lip gloss in white. After finishing the first tube of this I decided to try the newer BB Brightening Gloss in White when it came out last year, but as I had to learn that is a completely different animal. White is a milky white which tones down my naturally pigmented lips and gives me a nice nudish soft pink lip. White definitely has pigment, so it will show up and add lots of shine, but it has no shimmer. Perfect understated lip for the smokey eye. On the other hand, the White Brightening gloss has very little pigment, on my lips it did not show up much at all, except for some shimmer. The Brightening White looked soft pearlescent, not frosty, but no toning down of my natural pigment to speak of, it was basically clear and shimmery. So back to my basic White lipgloss it was. I use White exclusively applied on its own, sometimes with lip liner, but not over lipstick. This could be very versatile to soften brighter lipstick colors. For reference, I am a very fair PPP, BB Porcelain, NW15, neutral/cool toned, blond with grey green eyes. I will definitely repurchase. Retails for $19

*Update (05/2010) I ended up throwing this out, the scent of the product just worsened over time and the product made the brush un-separable. I'm on the lookout now for another white gloss - wouldn't recommend or purchase this product again.
This is a great glossy white lip gloss. It does lighten your lips about 3 shades and can be used alone or over lipstick. I love using it on it's own for a retro lip. My complaints: It's pricey and the tube seems smaller than those of rival brands...the applicator is horrible - it's a brush (very similar to a nail polish brush) that I predict will get stiff and clumpy over time - why BB doesn't change the applicator to a sponge is beyond me. The scent is also horrible. While I LOVE the color, I'd definitely try another brand - mainly due to this product's applicator and scent. Hopefully MAC will sell this color at some point in the near future.

I have been searching for a gloss that would give my lips the look of a sheer white gloss for years. BB White is a little too milky for me to wear alone. There is no shimmer or sheen to it, it is just pure, sheer white. I find myself using it in 2 ways. First, over a sheer lip pencil, to add a little shine to it. Second, over a gloss when I want to lighten the shade a bit. It works wonderfully when you want to tone down to bright or dark gloss. You probably need to have some pigment in your natural lip color for this to work alone as a gloss. I thought I could carry the gloss alone, but it is not a flattering look on my light olive complextion. Surprisingly, I do find myself using this color alot.

I would have never guessed that this would look as good as it does, but I think my lips are too pale for it. It would be really pretty on someone with more pigmented lips. I love BB glosses, but not the packaging. They are too small and that little brush is annoying.

I was so surprised that I bought this, but I sure am glad that I did. This is a milky white l/g in the tube, but goes on somewhat pigmented.I hate when I buy gloss and it is basically clear with some shimmer. This has NO shimmer, it is matte. I really liked the way this tones down my naturally pigmented lips into a nice light pink/nude color. Not too too sticky, which is great for me (I have long hair and it always gets stuck in my l/g!!) The only thing I didn't like was the horrible brush that comes with it. It is literally a brush, a hard plastic brush. You have to get used to it b/c at times it can make the gloss go on very streaky. Please keep in mind that you should apply this with a light hand.....if you put too much on, you will end up with milky white streaky lips!! I will without a doubt purchase again :)

Strangely enough I actually like the cheap brush that comes with the gloss. This milky white lipgloss is SO SO SO beautiful and I can't live without this color.

Never thought I would want or need or for that matter like, but I love it! Aliciaxuan sent me one in a swap as an extra so I figured I'd give it a try. It tones lipsticks down or is a great light gloss. It doesn't go on stark white, and it has good staying power and there's no icky scent or taste to it. This is a great staple to have around.
