This is definitely new HG status for me. It's the perfect milky pink gloss I've been searching for my whole life and it completely blows my usual go-to (Turkish Delight) out of the water. The colour is opaque, glossy, not sticky and it wears beautifully without leaving that dreaded gunk line on the inner part of your lips. There is absolutely no scent or taste so A+ if that kind of stuff bothers you in a lip product. What I love most about this gloss is that it is in fact very voluminous for your lips. You can read on the Beaute website the specific ingredients that give you instant plumping as well as long term benefits. I've experienced both first hand. When you put it on it instantly smooths your lips making them appear full and sexy. Ghost (the Beaute creator and one of our very own MUAers) says in a YT video you can slightly overline your natural lipline with this gloss to make your lips look super plump and sexy. I love this method, the tapered brush applicator and the non-slip formula allows you to use it as a liquid lip pencil. As for the long term effects this gloss is extremely moisturizing and as long as I keep reapplying this throughout the day there's no need for a lip balm. I can also tell that long after the gloss has worn off my lips are still very smooth looking with a lot of my lip lines gone. Amazing! Obviously I have no complaints about this gloss and I can't wait to try the other colours, and will be repurchasing this colour when I run out.

I received this item in a swap and I'm glad I went thru with the swap. This is my HG nude colour. I have trouble finding a nude shade because I want something with a pink undertone without making me look deadly and I have extremely pigmented lips. I have NC30 skintone and this compliments it perfectly.
It is a milky pink-beige that has no shimmer or glitter. It has a matte finish with a slight sheen. Some might compare it to NARS Turkish Delight, but this is way more pigmented. Also, it doesn't have the same sticky texture. I have really sensitive skin...even on my lips. So usually I react to some lipglosses/lipsticks/chapsticks where after a few hours my lips will start peeling. But this lip gloss doesn't. I don't need to put chapstick underneath. It is very moisturizing.
I didn't really notice it plumping my lips since this gloss does not provide a tingly sensation like other lip plumpers. But my lips are a good size that I don't really need any plumping.
The brush does splay but the trick is to wash the brush under hot water and it was go back to normal. If you are about to finish the end of the tube and there is still product stuck on the side, just put the gloss in a cup of hot water. All the product will then slide to the bottom of the tube.
All you need is one dip into the tube and that is enough to cover your entire lips. If you put too much, it will look goopey and it will start to settle into the lines of your lips.
It is a tad expensive but worth it over me purchasing cheaper nudes that don't deliver. It retails for $26CDN and can be bought at Holt Renfrew and online.

This color did not work for me. It is a pale, milky pink. It's too pale for me and looks very unnatural.
Also, the brush is splayed and hard to work with.

Beautiful colour, long wearing lipgloss very shiny with smooth application. Similar in my opinion to Chanel glossimers but last longer and aren't sticky. Look forward to more Beaute products in the future!!

These are nicely pigmented. So many other glosses look like clear gloss on my lips, but this is nicely opaque and has a lot of color payoff and staying power. I'd love to have more colors!

First of all, these have a great texture... sort of creamy and moisturizing and a bit "thick", but not sticky or tacky like MAC lipglass. It just feels like a nice moisturizing layer on your lips. No icky smell or taste (I couldn't discern much of either), and it isn't so thick that it glumps up on your lips or does anything weird.
All the colors are really pretty, and pigmented enough to definitely alter my naturally pigmented lips. Medusa is a pretty light pink nude shade.
Also, the packaging is really quite lovely. It reminds me a bit of the old Calvin Klein glosses --very simple but chic. They also seem to be good-sized.
Oh, and customer service is also very good. They had my glosses posted within two days. Canadian post did take another two weeks to get to me, but you can't blame customer service for that!
These are definitely worth checking out.
