I got this in a NARS set with deep throat / laguna. My first reaction to this is that it reminds me a lot of MAC nymphette lipgloss, just without the super thick texture that MAC has. What struck me too, is how golden it is. I was expecting it to be more pinky, I would have liked it to be more pinky/peach and less golden in tone. Don't get me wrong I do like the pink/gold effect, but for NARS pricing I think I'd buy nymphette instead.

I love the color of this lip gloss. It is a nice peachy sheen. I wanted to love the lip gloss itself, but it is very sticky. I also have found that it wears off pretty quickly. The look is nice, but I didn't enjoy the feel of this lip gloss.

I like the color, kind of, but wish it had more pigment and depth to it. It's a bit too frosty. The flavor is awful too, and I just don't find myself ever reaching for this. Bit disappointing for the price.

I own both this and the Super Orgasm lip gloss and I must say I prefer Super Orgasm - both for colour, texture and ease of use. Firstly, I'd like to say that this colour is very flattering but I'm not sure if it's as universally flattering as the Orgasm blush. I have medium skin with yellow undertones and I usually wear gold-toned taupes and bronzes on my eyes with a warm-toned pink or apricot blush. With those shades, this lip gloss looks awesome. It really brightens my face and looks very 'polished'. However, it is not the easiest to apply. I've found that this particular lip gloss is very drying in comparison to Super Orgasm and I need to apply a lip balm first before applying this or my lips will become dry and not very nice to look at. This gloss seems to apply unevenly at first and I really need to spread the gloss out with the wand before I achieve the desired result. But then there's a fine balance you need to strike - apply too much of this gloss and you get too much gold shimmer, which can result in the washed-out look others have mentioned. With Super Orgasm, I also apply on top of a balm but the gloss doesn't require any work to look good, it just looks great with minimal effort. This gloss is more peach compared to Super Orgasm, and personally, I feel the pinkier tone of the Super Orgasm is more flattering. My lips are quite pigmented and I do look good when wearing this gloss but it doesn't have the 'wow' factor I had hoped it would. Overall, I still much prefer it to some of my other glosses and I think I will be wearing it quite a lot throughout the summer but I doubt I will repurchase as it's a lot of money to part with for a gloss that doesn't live up to expectations.

I wish I read the reviews before purchasing this product. I was thinking it would be a nice coral shimmery color like the blush. Boy was I wrong! The color is creamy. I agree with the previous reviewer, it does look washed out.But It does have a nice lusturous shine/finish. I think this lip gloss would be best suited to go on top of another lipstick, but I wouldn't spend this amount of money to buy a gloss that I'd have to use another lip color with. .

The color is too light, makes me look "washed out" and looks cheap. It tastes like plastic. Overall, this is awful.

Lovely, unique color, and not sticky on the lips. It's just a bit too expensive!

This was given to me as a gift. There is nothing wrong with the colour - I found it to be pigmented, flattering and wearable. The reason I gave it a low rating was because of the texture and smell, which is a personal preference thing. I pulled it out to use the other day after not having used it fo a while, and the smell really put me off - it smelled bad to begin with, but I think it had also 'gone off' so to speak and really reeked. It was not very old, either. I also find it quite sticky. The staying power is therefore pretty good, but I don't like the feel of it. I threw it out and won't repurchase.

It's hard to know whether to give this product 3 or 4 lippies. Overall I think it deserves 3 due to the high price.
I bought this on a whim, despite disliking the Orgasm blush, and I'm glad I did. For some reason this gloss gives me such a put-together look without having to wear anything else on my lips. I love the gold shimmer, as it pales out my lips a little but keeps me looking warm. I think I will re-purchase, although the price is ridiculous, if you ask me.
However there is another down side... the smell/taste. This stuff smells plastic-y... you know that "no scent" scent? That's this. And it gives me bad breath. That might sound nuts, but it really does. It makes my mouth feel un-fresh.
But despite that, I like the way this makes my lips look and feel. It's not sticky, and it makes me feel glamourous. So I'm just going to load up on the gum!
