I love this lipgloss - I've almost used it up and that's pretty unusual for me since I have so many of them they're usually evenly used. I love the brush applicator and the smooth (not sticky) texture of the gloss. It definitely isn't the color for you if you're looking for something really bold, but it's a nice, natural looking pink with decent staying power and no odd smell.

I really like the scent of this, it's more of a sweet lemon smell like lemonade. It takes a little longer to sink into the skin than some other lotions (it's quite thick) but once it does it's an effective moisturizer. I ordered this from Vitacost and the pump from the bottle was damaged when it got here so the packaging may not be the best quality, but I really do like the lotion.
I am pretty much obsessed with the smell of grass... I practically bought up all the "green grass" candles at yankee candle... so I really like this... fresh and summery, smells like grass.
When I first wore this, I thought it smelled too fakey-sweet-fruity. Then when I got in the car with all my brothers they started saying stuff like "hey what smells so good" and "wow whats that smell." So I guess this would be a good scent to attract high school guys. For me it's something maybe I'd wear in the summer, but I'll stick to Pink Sugar for a sweet scent.
I'll compare this to the closest product I can think of, the UD flavored powders. I was excited when this came out because a bronze color and sugar cookie scent seemed like it was going to be a winner. Comparing this to UD's cocoa powder, the too faced is a bit lighter, and alot more shimmery. The scent is sweet, I guess it smells like cookies, but in any case its not a funky smell like some of the UD ones have. So here's the catch... for the same price as a UD powder, you're getting a whopping 8g, where the larger UD powders are 18g. It's an alright product, but I can't get over paying the same price for less than half the product of a basically identical item.
I was sort of excited about this because I was looking for a summery scent, but this is not it. On me, it is straight up sunscreen smell. That's the only thing I smell and it is STRONG. Unfortunately for me, this also seems to be one of the longer lasting Demeters, so if you like to smell like SPF 45, this will be a good one for you.
This color really brightens up my face and gives me a fresh look. I really like the formulation of the lip polishes, shiny and smooth without being sticky. I wish this gloss was a little more pigmented though, it is a pretty sheer peach and I was hoping for a little more orange out of it. It's still a nice color so I'd repurchase. (warm LLL, hazel eyes, light brown hair)
I think this may be discontinued since I seem to only see on it Ebay lately. In the bottle it looks like a very deep, bright raspberry color, but like many of the lip polishes really sheers and mellows out on the lips. On the lips it is a little brighter than MLBB, very shiny w/o shimmer, a juicy medium pink. The color reminds me somewhat of NARS frisky summer, but a little more sheer and glossy. I really like the color, it freshens up my face without being garish. I would buy it again.
Lip Gloss -TheBalm - Plump Your Pucker in Cocoa my Coconut
jellybeans18 1/22/2005 2:08:00 PM
This is such a great gloss, a fairly pigmented nude with a coconut/chocolate scent. For $14 you get a generous amount of product (.25 oz). As for the plumping, I haven't used it straight for a month, because who can stick to one gloss for a whole month anyways, but it doesn't seem to do a whole lot in the way of plumping, other than a cool minty tingle when it's first applied. It may fill in the lines in my lips just a little, but I could be imagining things. So if you're looking for a great gloss, then get this, but if you're looking for swollen, allergy looking lips this isn't the product for you.
I recieved this in a swap and I love it. I have a really hard time getting dark or dramatic colors to work on my lips, but this is sheer and glossy enough to work for me. Also, many reds turn hot pink or fuschia on me, and this one stays pretty true to color, which is nice for a change. It is juicy and fresh without being vampy, and I love the smooth consistency. Try this out if you're looking for a warm, sheer, glossy red. Warm LLL for reference.
I recieved this in a swap and it sat in my drawer for awhile because I was scared of it, but now I'm totally loving it. My favorite look with it right now is to put cargo's georgia or mac's motif all over the lid, with rule in the crease, mulch as a liner, and melon pigment over the rule to give it some sparkle. This look makes me look summery and tanned combined with some light bronzer and a shimmery lip. I would like this shade better if it had some shimmer to it, but it just gives me an excuse to play with my pigments and other loose powders, so it's no big deal. Overall, this is a fun color to play with, and can be adapted to be used as an everyday color, so don't be scared of the orange. Warm LLL, hazel eyes, brown hair for reference.
Highlighters -Jane - Jane Radiation - "You're Golden"

I like to use this too add some shimmer to my matte or less shimmery shadows. It looks great over pretty much any color, right now I'm using it over MAC's rule shadow to give it a little pop. This stuff is super sparkly, it looks like little flecks of gold, and there's tons in the container, definatly worth the price.
This is a sheer, shiny gloss in click pen packaging. The color is a sheer rasberry pink with subtle gold shimmer. It has a peppermint scent, but not taste. The color is a nice ylbb color, adds a juicy freshness without being too bold, good for a natural or everyday look. The consistancy of the gloss is alright, not overly sticky like lipglazes.
I bought three of these during Sephora's clearance sale, in colors #7 (sheer orange with glitter), #10 (peach/pink milky color), and #8 (sheer rasberry pink with gold shimmer). They have the standard click pen that is pretty common now and are generally sheer and glossy, with a peppermint scent. For the $5 each I paid for them I would buy them again, but they are a little too sheer to justify a $20 price tag IMO. If you are into lipglazes though pick some of these up while they're on sale, because they are fairly similar, but less tacky.
This is one of my favorite lipglasses, the white in the tube turns to a wash of lavender/pink iridecence on the lips. It is very smooth and I think less sticky than some of the other lipglasses I own.
