Gorgeous color! I love this! It looks great on my lips and feels incredibly smooth. There is a nice color payoff of a reddish brown, similar to chocolate cherry. I purchased this at Dollar Tree and I am so glad I did. The only bad thing is the smell is absolutely awful.

I found this Chocolate Cherry gloss (along with Berry Sweet- a LE re-promote of Berry Bella, and Cinnamon Apple) at my local Dollar Tree. It comes with the updated Shinylicious packaging, and is dark brownish-red in color.
I bought it hoping for a sophisticated red gloss (like the wonderful L'Oreal Raspberry Smash) but on my lips, it applies streaky (only somewhat better with a lip brush) and the color, while pigmented, is a bit harsh for my pale coloring. If the consistency was better and a little lighter, I would love to use it more. The scent is pleasing, not too over powering of (fake) chocolate cherry.
Overall, not too bad of a gloss; it may work better on others, but I wouldn't repurchase.

I love this lip gloss! I found it at the dollar store and liked it so much that I snapped up extras for my sisters. It's a beautiful color, staying power is decent, and it smells delicious. It's pigmented, but not over the top---I don't know what people are talking about when they say it goes on clear. The one I have has a plastic slant applicator---maybe that's the difference. Overall, I highly recommend this!

Favorite lip gloss ever, the color was perfect--it was my holy grail, then they discontinued it :( so bummed, I haven't been able to find anything to replace it, time to stock up on ebay while I can.

On me, this is the perfect MLBB color. A very sheer, non-sticky brownish red. I actually like the foam applicator, I find that it spreads the gloss over my lips quite nicely. Works well on its own, or over another lippie or more pigmented gloss. I'm not a huge fan of the scent, but it's not super offensive or lingering. A great gloss, especially for the price. Highly underrated IMHO.

I got this as a gift in a swap. I would not have picked this color on my own as I am very fair with blonde hair and green eyes. It looked way too dark for me.
However, I tried it, and it is a nice sheery brownish red color. I have almost no pigment on my lips so it is a nice neutral pick me up. I do not like the foam applicator but it does help it go on more smoothly than other glosses like juicy tubes and colour juices.
I wish it was a bit more sticky so it would last longer, but this is a nice gloss.
EDIT to say that I somehow developed an allergy to this so now I cannot use it. I cannot use a lot of lipglosses/lipsticks now, so I will not be repurchasing.

For me, choosing a lip color is always a gamble...especially since my skin gets so fair in the winter. But I have to say, this is one of the greatest lip glosses I've tried in a long time. The best selling point? It's not sticky! It glides on smooth and is very comfortable to wear. This particular color is actually close to what it looks like in the tube. Others of this brand/type are not, so be careful!

like a reviewer below, my boyfriend picked this up for me as a little surprise and i was totally afraid of the color. i have basically avoided wearing it for a long time now... alone, i find it darkens my lips (which i hate) and gives them a shine. worn over lipstick however- gorgeous! i just tried it over pink diamond, a lipstick i got from lancome as a GWP, and it really transforms the color into something richer, and brings my look, together (A pronounced blueish eye today with moon flower). pink diamond has been described by some to be like viva glam V but slightly pinker. can't wait to try this over more lipsticks!

Maybe I'll be one of those few people who like the fuzzy slant applicator of this squeeze tube lip gloss.
I love it in a sense that, it's like using a wand-sponge-on applicator from other lip glosses, which i find more hygienic than a plastic slant applicator, which i find messy and more UNHYGIENIC!
color: it appears reddish brown in the tube but goes on sheer on lips w/a slight tint to it. in my medium pigmented lips, it appears mauve color.
texture: smooth, very fine, and shiny! i like the fact that it doesn't have shimmers to it!
odor: although it's choco cherry, i didn't smell any choco scent; it's more of cherry scent
taste: you may not be able to tell the sweet taste by just licking it but when you suck your lip, then that's the time that you'll be able to taste the sweetness!

I wanted more color than this...there's really not hardly any color to this...if you want an almost clear YLBB shiny gloss then this is for you but if you are expecting something with some color then don't bother. This has a little bit of taste and smell but not offensive at all IMHO.

This gloss is a gorgeou dark pink/reddish tone. Since it's fairly sheer, it has the appearance of a pricey just-bitten color lip stain.
It's not gummy or tacky, and has just the right amount of shine--glossy without being over-the-top porn-star uber shiny. It just lasts as long as your normal gloss, so no extra points there.
It has a faint chocolatey smell, but it's not obvious when you're wearing it. I'm really smell-sensitive, and I didn't find the scent strong or obtrusive.
The packaging is okay--while looking a little kiddie and cheap--the applicator is a nice curved, spongy-tipped thing that makes application easy. It's also nice that the tube is flattish and fairly small, I hate those big tubes with their long, gummy applicator sticks!
Overall low cost, great color, average wearing power.

I love this color. My lips are dark pink naturally, so this is a MLBB color for me. It is not very pigmented - I wouldn't mind a little more to be honest. For the price, I can't complain. This particular color has a slight chocolate scent. It's not sticky or gloppy at all. I don't mind the applicator, but it goes on nicely with a brush, too.

Love this color. It is so appropriately named: gives my already brownish lips a beautiful brownish cherry punch of color. At first I hated it because it went on clear when I tried to use the built-in doe-foot applicator or my finger. Then I used my lip brush and found that the gloss goes on more pigmented than before. I wore it to MAC one day, and a MA said she loved my lip color and asked for the name of it. This one is definitely a keeper.

The color is okay, but it looks different in the tube. Also, it really doesn't last long so I find myself constantly re-applying it. Beware-it has a cheap foam applicator that I can't stand and the smell is horrible!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I really like Cherry Berry (sheer bright red with pink undertones) so I had high hopes for this too. But even though this smells decent, it just isn't pigmented like Cherry Berry is. I was disappointed considering how dark it is in the tube. The color still looks decent on me (NC25 Asian), but I never reach for it, b/c if I want a nude/natural look, I reach for a nude/natural l/g, not this -- and if i want a dark chocolatey look, I don't reach for this -- basically, there are few situations when I think to reach for this. Plus it has that foam applicator that I just don't dig. I won't repurchase.

mmmm love this color! my boyfriend picked it up for me on a whim one day and although i thought it was sweet of him to think of me at the store, i was scared of the color! i am pretty fair and usually stay away from such deep shades. but when i put it on i LOVED it. its definitely a YLBB color, but thats not to say the color isnt true to what you see in the tube. i guess i just didnt realize how great that color would look layered OVER the natural color of my lips. because it is a fairly rich formula for a drug store gloss the color does come out true. true but also sheer. it looks gorgeous on, it tastes sort of sweet, and its a great consistency. doest last all that long but fairly long for a drug store gloss. i want more shiny-licious glosses!

this is a GORGEOUS color - very subtle, YLBB, muted plummy/brown/berry color with NO sparkles! and, unlike many of the other colors in this line, it actually smells GOOD! just faintly sweet - no weird tutti-frutti, gag-inducing odor. as for the applicator, i actually like! it's totally different from anything else i have, it works well, and it's kind of fun. i don't mind so much that these are hit-and-miss (with the flavors/scents) - they're dirt cheap!

This one is part of their newly expanded regular collection now--yeah! Love this color. It's so hard to find glosses w'out shimmer from d/s lines, and this is a lovely deeper plummy browned berry. Love the color, but dislike the sickly sweet foody scents of these glosses. Also *really* don't enjoy the felt-tip applicator although I realize it probably isn't any less hygenic than a doe-foot applicator it still creeps me out. Probably won't buy this again, but these are decent for the price.

Why, oh why is this an LE gloss??? I love it! What a great color! I love that it doesnt have any of that glittery stuff. It's just gorgeous beautiful gloss. I want to stock up on this color but its so hard to find!!! The color is a deep raisin red. And the smell...mmmm....I actually think it helps me control my chocolate cravings! LOL!
You know what, dont go out and buy this....more for me!!!!! Hahahaha. :)

This is a good every day color on the lips. Not too dark or pigmented. Just enough pizazz to look finished. Sort of a brownish red-raisin color.
Like my lips only a bit darker. I like that it is not shiny or metallic.
I'm not too fond of the slanted foam tip, but it is a good size to put in my bag.
It's cheap enough also to try different colors, too.
As for staying power, it lasts a couple of hours on me before needing re-application.
