This is a nice brown orange shimmery color.I thought I would try this because L'oreal is known for their lip products and this didn't disappoint it goes on the same color as it is in the tube. It is the same with the other from this line that I have.This gloss has a rounded tip with a hole in the middle making it easier to get it on you lips in all the right places.You just have to remember not to squeeze to hard since there is no way to get the extra product back in the tube
This is a thicker lip gloss so if you like thinner consistency this will not be the product for you.One of these broke on me forcing me to put in in a container and use a lip brush making it thickness really evident.I thick this gloss lasts longer because of it's thickness.

Mmm, a juicy, beautiful warm summery lip color! It goes great with my complexion. I love the thickness of this product because a little goes a long way. It goes nicely with most outfits and eyeshadows, so it's pretty versatile. The only thing that bugs me is how sticky it is and my bf complains about it, too.

As others have said, this comes out looking orangey/pink on, mine also came with the round applicator, although other colours of this have the slanted applicator, which I prefer. Not worth it in my opinion...these are expensive for drugstore and aren't that great.

I really love the colour, feel, and look of this gloss. Unfortunately, the applicator kills me to use. Its so fat and comes out in this tiny hole... how am i supposed to use it!? sometimes, if i have time, ill wash my hands then squeeze some out onto my finger and apply it.

I like most of the color juice lip glosses (especially tutti fruity), but this one didn't impress me. It seems really streaky, not smooth like the other glosses. I also don't like the color much. I thought it would be a nice milky pink, but it's like an orangey nude. I also don't like the rounded aplicator. I don't understand why some of these glosses have a slanted tip (which I like better) and some have the rounded. ok, not great.

It's called Strawberry Smoothie but it's an orange lip gloss ~ I assumed it would be pink, since I have never seen an "orange" strawberry. I already own Melon Punch, so no need for another melon/orange lip gloss. I will buy Colour Juice again, just not this color.

I picked this up yesterday. I was looking for a nice nude and so this was perfect. It's 510 the color is called strawberry smoothie. The smell isn't a strawberry smell. That surprised me when I saw the name. I isn't thick and sticky and that's a plus the smell is of a fruit. I like the tube they are easy to use. And I'll be going back to pick up a few more. They had a ton of great colors.

I really like this gloss. I love the color and I have been looking a long time for a nice peachy gloss and I had this all the while. Works great with a tropical peachy blush. I could see this with a brown smokey eye too! The scent is nice and the color lasts a long time.

This is like a nude pink, not what I'd like of strawberries to look like as the name implies. Sheer to Lightly pigmented if layered. Round tip applicator 0.5 fl. oz.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium Brown, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
Yuck. Feels sticky and goopy on lips, and it quite drying. The applicator is difficult to handle. These glosses look quite nice on, but for me, it's not worth it.

I was in TJ Maxx when I saw a bin full of Lancome Juicy Tubes (some of the colors are still in the department stores at this very moment so the selections wasn't out-dated) as well as lipsticks, eyeshadows, nail polishes, artliners - And yes, I bought a couple of each item...especially the juicy tubes.
Back to my review...I did not own any Lancome L/G's and this was a perfect opportunity to do a haul ($7.99 @ TJ Maxx) and I knew L'Oreal owned Lancome so I went to CVS and picked up, for the first time ever, some color juices and Strawberry Smoothie was one of my selections.
Earlier in the week I'd gone to MAC at Bloomingdales and purchased Enchantress. So when I swatched Strawberry Smoothie (I had already swatched Enchantress) i noted that Strawberry Smoothie is an awesome dupe!! Yay!!
I'm NC45 and this color is a peach-coral-gold-pink metallic finish on me with opague coverage. I apply it on top of my MAC lip treatment and line with Too Faced Anti-feathering lip pencil in Clear and this wears/settles very nicely throughout my day.
I love when I find dupes that are of great quality/comparable to my higher end makeup. I hope L'Oreal never discontinues Strawberry Smoothie.

This has to be the worst gloss. It is glue with some colour and smell to it that feels tacky and gross on lips. The worst thing? It drags when I try to apply it. I don't remember who or what magazine once said that high end cosmetics are just selling their brand name. NO. They ARE wayyy better, and you buy what your money is worth. This is a peachy nude colour in the tube and is basically Lancome Simmer on lips, it emphasizes the chap on my lips and sinks into lines and when I close my mouth I need some effort to be able to open them again, and of course, before you know it, some tacky stuff builds on your lips where they meet. Simmer costs more but is way better than this. Has a strong scent to it that reminds me of some candy I had when I was very little and smells good, but scent this strong? I am sure I will be sick of it by the end of first week. Packaging is crap. I'm ok with the round head applicator, but it is more likely to fill up the cap. Looks cheap. Feels cheap. Not worth the money even though it was only 7 bucks CAD, about 1/3 of what I'd normally pay for a gloss, but I will never EVER purchase this again, and this one is going back to the store.

I am very happy with this lip gloss. My favorite part about is that it smells really yummy but it does not have a taste. It is a pretty sticky lip gloss but it does have staying power. These guys are very sheer. They cost about $5-$7 at drug stores. They have a squeeze tube applicator which I am a big fan of. These go great over lipstick. These guys are comparable to Lancome's Juicy Tubes. They feel and smell about the same at half the cost.

I bought ColorJuice for the first time in Tutti Frutti which was a mistake because I had no idea how highly pigmented the color was. It was like bright reddish pink and not sheer at all. Don't get me wrong, it's a really pretty color, but I just don't think it would be something I would wear everyday. In my opinion Tutti Frutti would be more appropiate for like an evening date or something. For that reason, I returned Tutti Frutti and exchanged for Strawberry Smoothie instead. Strawberry Smoothie is a more wearable, daily color which I like. I have been using it for two months now, and I wear it a lot because of the color and the fruity good smell. The gloss itself is a nudish color with some pink added in, and it's high shine for sure. Sometimes the stickiness bothers me thought. I know many reviewers don't like the round applicator of this product or the little hole, but I like it because I never use lip brushes. For me it's just easier to pop this on without having to look in the mirror. Also, I would take alcohol and clean off the tip of this lip gloss every few days or whenever the sticky end bothers me.
I would recommend this gloss for day wear (around $7) and it is a good drug store buy. As for repurchasing this product. .. I probably would not repurchase in the same color just because I would be interested in trying a different color or other new things that come out!
UPDATE: After two months of use, I've noticed that the gloss itself sinks into my lips and the lines. Maybe because it's such a sheer, nude color and that's why it makes the sinking more obvious. Also, the taste of this gloss is becoming less bearable for me. I don't remember all this happening when I first bought it! 1 lippie down.

I love the color of this (peachy pink on me) but the application is terrible. This works best if I squeeze onto a lip brush and apply. Would be much better if this came as a wand applicator. For a DS gloss this lasts pretty long and gives good color and shine.

Love this. Great Peachy Pink with a metallic shimmer to it. Liked it as a blonde but Love it on me as a red head. Worn over my favorite lip balm, it actually 'locks in' the lip balm so my lips don't dry out. I wish there was a long wearing lipstick this shade.

eh, not crazy bout this. its a pretty color, which is one of the reasons why i bought it. the other one was i was in a hurry and i didn't have anything on my lips. its really thick and it comes out of a teeny hole at the top. its really hard to spread it evenly on my lips with the round tip. it also seems to highlight the wrinkles on my lips.. or maybe its just me.? its not all bad that its really thick, it lasts longer. but still, it feels really sticky. so, afterall i won't be repurchasing.

i am so impressed with these Color Juice lipglosses! i'm telling you, i absolutely love these just as much as my MAC glosses, and the price definitely doesn't hurt either! these are glosses that come at drugstore prices but NOT drugstore quality, they're far above that level! anyways Strawberry Smoothie is a really gorgeous color, it's pinky-peachy with a little bit of bronzey-coppery thrown in, but just a tiny bit. not overwhelming at all. on my medium pigmented lips it looks really pretty, not opaque but definitely not too sheer, either. i was at the MAC counter over the weekend lusting after Enchantress lipgloss and i'm really glad i didn't buy it because i think this CJ gloss is fairly similar and half the price. the texture of the gloss is thick (but in a good way, a way that means it lasts on your lips for a long time), smooth, cushiony, and moisturizing. my boyfriend says it also smells nice, like candy. everything about these glosses are great and you just can't go wrong for $6. definitely 2 thumbs up from me!

L'Oreal Color Juice in Strawberry Smoothie is a beautiful golden pink peach color, an elegant nude on the lips. I'm happy it didn't wash me out. I have pale yellow-toned skin (MAC NC30). It had a cute fruity scent.
I personally am a fan of thick glosses because they're more stationary, but Strawberry Smoothie didn't do it for me. I will not repurchase for the following reasons: (1) I don't like the bulb squeeze tip. Lipgloss smears all over the place, onto the screw, into the cap, just messy. (2) It is thick, I cannot get it out of the tube, when I do, it does not spread. I gave up using a lipbrush. Fingers work best for this one. (3) It is DRYING. Even with loads of lipbalm, the gloss starts drying within an hour, seeping into the lines on my lips, leaving behind terrible metallic shimmer. Once in a while, I even get peeling. I would recommend staying away from this one, it's not worth the $9 CAD.
