This is going to be a strange review, because I actually really liked this product and the bee-stung lips it gave me-but I will not buy it again-I will explain why later. The packaging is fairly typical-a tube with an applicator set into the top-my only quibble here is that the labeling on the outside tends to wear off very quickly, and it's a bit annoying if you are trying to remember what the color is called. It's a little sticky, so it's not something I would recommend wearing to dinner, but it is very shiny, a nice color, and stays put for a couple of hours before wearing off. The initial tingling caused by the plumping element goes away very quickly after application, and isn't uncomfortable-it leaves me with a sort of pleasant cool feeling, as though I've just had an Italian ice. It also doesn't come off on my teeth, which is very nice. As far as pricing goes, I don't recall exactly how much I paid for it, but I don't believe it was terribly expensive, as I don't normally splurge on lip gloss. So....if it's all that and a bag of chips, why am I not planning to buy some more? The reason is because I had some sort of allergic reaction to it that caused the tip of my tongue to go numb, similar to the way it might feel a day or two after receiving a pizza burn. Not sure why this happened, or what ingredient caused it, but I'm bummed about it because I really do like this gloss, and if it didn't have that effect on me, I would probably buy it again.

Nice, muted pink; not too light or bright. Typical for a BE/Buxom lip gloss.

Nice neutral color but very very sticky!! Surprised by all the great reviews. This is a hairs worst nightmare in a windstorm

I do not like the tingle of this gloss and it is being trashed.

I love it and I love the way it feels tingly and how much healthier it makes my lips look but I hate the smell. it smells like maple donuts or something weird

I have Dolly in both the non-tingle gloss and the lipstick (which is in the limited edition container with a kiss graphic on it- only difference that I can tell). The gloss smells kinda like sugar, but it's faint and doesn't taste like anything. I don't smell or taste anything with the lipstick. I like this best layered since I feel like the shine in the gloss gives me more of the color, but the lipstick lasts far longer, so I layer the gloss on top of it and it's a really nice color. I usually stay away from lip products because I hate having to reapply and have a hard time finding colors that I like on me, but this is amazing. It's a nude, but also pinkish, matte-ish in the lipstick and glossy in the gloss so you have a choice of finishes, sells at a reasonable Sephora price point, and just seems to go with EVERYTHING from a dramatic smokey eye night look, to a hanging out at a playdate no makeup look.

The only time anyone has ever asked me on Facebook what lip color I was wearing, I was wearing Dolly over a Bite pencil. I do not like the intense minty flavor, although I realize that's the "plumping". I just don't like to taste my lip products. Gets in the way of other things. If I couldn't find a drugstore dupe, I might repurchase this but as it is, I'm pretty sure I can find something more inexpensive that's pretty close to this color.

I have several shades of Buxom lip gloss, but Dolly has got to be my favorite. The gloss is a little thick, but the mauve color very flattering on fair skin.

MLBB plumping gloss. Looks mauve in the tube but comes out fairly clear with a hint of color that matches my medium pigmented lips almost perfectly. One bonus is that this medium thick gloss lasts more than an hour, given not a lot of eating or drinking. I'm on my third tube so this is HG status yo.

I got a mini/sample size in a swap. I hate lip gloss in general and even though this stuff is sticky, I love it. It's mainly because of the effect it has on the lips. It has a SEVERE cooling/peppermint sensation. It's different than a normal menthol flavor/feeling. It's like your lips are frozen (without the frostbite). I love the way it feels. No other plumping or product in general has this heavy of a cold sensation and I love it. It is sticky, which I typically hate, but it's not heavy/uncomfortable. This could be due to the cool effect. I'm not sure. I also like the way it makes my lips look. I have a small mouth so any way I can make my lips look a little bigger, is a good thing. This product makes my lips look plump and juicy. (not in a gross way, which is the way most lip gloss looks to me) The only negative is the price. The full size product is pushing 20 bucks!! That's ridiculous. I think I will eventually buy one because they're so great but no more than that because of the outrageous price. I don't understand why it's so pricey. Even MAC is cheaper.
