After falling in love with the Coca Cola Lipsmacker, I was out to try some more, and I thought I'd start with this one. On the package it's described as a sparkly, strawberry flavoured lipgloss designed to make lips shiny and moisturise.
First of all, this does give a very shiny result, with a slight hint of frosty pink. Actually it feels rather gritty when I put it on, because of the glitter; it does contain a lot of it. But the look it gives is both natural and fabulous. You get plump, shiny lips with practically zero effort, anytime and anywhere.
The second thing I adore about it is the fact that, while it's described as a "gloss", the texture is that of a balm, meaning it's creamy and stays on for quite some time. It's not greasy, it's not sticky, it's not thin or runny, actually nothing about its consistency reminds me of gloss. That means you get shine without uncomfortable stuff on your lips; it feels very nice and comfy on. And it also does moisturize.
Now the scent. Well it doesn't smell anything like real strawberries. It smells exactly like strawberry candy/gum. Artificial but in a delicious way.
All in all, with this you get natural yet luscious shine, combined with the soft, creamy texture of a balm, while the product is handy enough for you to just slap it on while on the go. Plus it's very cheap. For days when all you want is natural, understated and laidback but still polished, this is ideal. I gave it four because in terms of originality it's nothing new or special or really unique, but I enjoy it, find it very useful and yes, I'd buy again.

I use this for everyday and when I go out. It is awesome!!! I do not like wearing lipstick or gloss. I like more natural looks and this is it with a bang!

Blargh! This is the furthest from strawberry I've ever tasted. My god, this is terrible. Maybe I got an old tube(though I don't see how, I got it at Wal-Mart & their merchandise turns over pretty fast), but mine is this awful BITTER wax flavor. It smells fine, but once I got it on my lips I was sorely disappointed. Bonne Bell is usually so spot-on, I'm sad...

Not that this stuff smells synthetic, I think it smells like Bubbliscous strawberry gum or something. At first, the scent bothered me but a couple of seconds later it faded. I like the shimmer it gives my lips and it tastes sweet. It's not my favourite, and probably wouldn't buy again.

Ick. It smells pretty much just like fake strawberry, but it leaves an awful taste in your mouth! Even if you don't lick your lips. The color is kind of a pale frost pink, so it's not to bad.

This is the stuff! A shimmering frosty, emollient pomade with a fun, fruity, zingy strwberry taste/scent and a shimmery pinky-peach tint. The container is also pretty. A beauty standby. 5 lipsticks

Smells like synthetic strawberry. Just like Strawberry Lip Smackers. Not much of a taste. Comes out light pink with lots of shimmer. Stays on like normal chap stick.

Shimmery strawberry, a tart strawberry, and very good. Another great lipsmacker!

This is an "OK" lip balm/gloss, it has shimmer and a strawberry flavor, but it looks kinda pasty on me (I'm a PPP) and it kinda washes me out, it's nice for buying it once, but I don't think I'd buy it again!
