Let's see....I got this product b/c I love the Jaqua Girls brand. As I am sort of a sucker for packaging, I was attracted to this little gloss in its own box house. Once out of the package, it is still quite pretty. The lace pattern on the see thru part makes the gloss look elegant. The color is very gorgeous. It is a dark toned berry with very fine shimmer. Just enough to keep the gloss from looking flat, but not enough to make it visible when applied. The only thing I can't stand is the smell. It smells too fake orangey to me. Almost like a bathroom cleaner. However, that doesn't deter me enough to not wear it. The BEST thing about this gloss (although others may find it to be the worst) is that it is so pigmented that it will leave a stain on your lips. This is good. I like stains, but they are usually so dry I have to put something on top. So this product is like stain and gloss in one. They should market it as so!
Overall, I'd repurchase for color and staying power.

This is a very nice dark berry color. It looks different on than the color in the tube. And it really lasts, much like a lipstain. You have to be careful when applying it, it's not a sheer gloss. Not drying or uncomfortably sticky. Strong orange scent (which I like) when first applied but that goes away after a few minutes. It does have a sorta chemical taste to it and is a little pricey (though I got mine 75% off so not a bad price!). The packaging is really cute and functional. Overall, quite impressed!

Tuscan Orange came in a set of 3 JG Lip Whips (Caramel Cappucino, Tuscan Orange, Pink Buttercream ... totally drool-worthy names), and this was the one shade I was least excited about. I don't wear berry shades of any type, but as this came as a set and I was totally lusting after the other 2 shades, I figured why not give it a shot?
The color you see in the tube, a warm-toned shimmery golden berry, is pretty, but sheerer than you'd think. This one actually stained my lips, something I wasn't thrilled with (if I want a stain, I'll WEAR a stain). I hated how this looked on me (redhead/blue eyes/FFF warm-complected). Granted, as I mentioned, I stick with neutrals and avoid berry shades, but this just looked off altogether on me.
The feel of these was ok ... after reading the reviews here, I was convinced that I HAD to get these, because I thought the shine factor and the feel and the colors would be all that. But the feel was ok ... not too tacky -- enough to get my hair stuck to my mouth LOL, but not sticky like BB or MAC glosses (not by a long shot). The shine factor ... eh. I got a slight sheen, but I get better shine from my Revlon SL l/g.
As for the scent ... the scent is divine, but I think that at times, with all due respect, people get confused between scent and TASTE. These do not TASTE good at all. A chemical/plastic taste seeped into my mouth with these, and I couldn't wait to get it off.
I'm generally not one to return things, but this entire set went back to BBW (thank God I'd gotten it on sale ... full priced at $28, I'd have kicked myself had I not been able to return them).

This is my new favorite lip gloss. I wouldn't not have thought that this berry color would work on my light skin, but it looks awesome! The fragrance is amazing and the gloss has the right amount of gloss without being sticky. Love it!

This stuff is gorgeous! It's the most perfect berry color I've ever tried. The shade is very different than the others which seemed too garish, pink, or brownish. It also has a great, thick consistency, which makes it last forever. The shimmer in this is understated but still very sexy. To me it smells like orange cough syrup, but that only lasts for about 30 seconds. The packaging is also adorable...very..."budoir"

this one looked scay int he tube, but it actually turned out to be the most flattering of the 3 lip whip colors. it is a sheer berry color when applied and unlike many darker shades, it does not clash with my reddish hair or make my pale skin look dead white. the scent is fair, its my least favorite scent but the color is so good that i can overlook the scent. i will repurchase this color before i would any of the other lip whip colors.

This is a cassis/berry color that looks great on everyone I have tried it on (and I try a lot of products on a lot of people, famous and otherwise!). Dark coloring, pale coloring, blonds, brunettes all look great in this shade, and the flavor/scent is subtle and delightful. It's right up there with Chanel Spark on the "great shades you've got to have" list. Well worth a try.
