When I first put this color on, I was very disappointed because it was ultra sticky and they color was not out of this world. But in all honesty I put it on over another lip color I was wearing so I am sure that didn't help the color or texture. So the following day with clean lips I put this on with a lip brush and WOW!! I LOVE this color. IMO, this looks more satin than shiny/glossy and after it wears off it leaves this pretty berry stain on my lips. It is not as sticky as I thought it was and the wear is quite long even through all the drinking and eating. This color goes very well with my light-medium complexion and since I wear no eye make-up at all this brightens up my whole face. Will definitely buy again.
Although Kir is a Chantecaille lip gloss, I was no too thrilled with the color, but I still love the quality and feel of it. I was expecting it to be more of a sheer plum color, but it is deeper and IMO is not that sheer. Of course I will use it but I will not purchase this color again. I have too many lip colors in this color. I will be sticking with my Cassis for the deeper berry color.
This is the fourth lipgloss from Chantecaille that I have purchased and this is the first gloss that actually shows up on my lips! Cassis is French for blackcurrant (for those of you that didn't know) and it is a scary dark color in the pot, but on my lips it is a sheerer berry color more on the red side than the plum side. I chose this color over the Grenadine because I don't really look good in red colors and Cassis is quickly becoming my favorite. The only gripe I have with these lipglosses is that you have to use your finger or lip brush to put this on and when it is near the end it gets harder and harder to reach the gloss in the edges. I have very small fingers so my pinky is good for applying the gloss but this color is not that sheer; you will need the mirror. Wicked expensive but soooooo worth it!!
This is my third lipgloss from Chantecaille and I can't get enough of them. Although this color does not show up at all on my lips, I like the juicy, wet look it leaves. So I mainly use it as a lipbalm because of the gorgeous moisturizing feel it leaves on my lips. I agree with other reviews that this color is prettier than Nectar. Expensive, but it is well worth it!
The first time I bought this color lipstick from Stila, it was my first and it was in the cardboard packaging. Although I absolutely adored the color, the packaging was horrendous. The lipstick broke right away and it went rancid on me within that first month. Then it just smelled awful after that. I had to throw it out, but then I was at Sephora the other day and I happen to see this in another package (metal) and so I bought it. Now I am so happy with this because this lipstick is MLBB since my lips are very pigmented. I love that this is moisturizing and for me once the color wears off, I have somewhat of a stain on my lips. For reference I am a MMM. I will definitely purchase this again.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals Foundation #2

I really have no idea what it is about this make-up that just makes my skin look absolutely horrible! I can honestly say before the application of this make-up my face is poreless (if that's a word) and once I put this on, EVERY single pore comes out! I usually only wear powder foundations because one, I have oily skin and second because I HATE liquid foundation. With my other powder foundations my skin looks flawless, airbrushed (everything this foundation is supposed to do). BE doesn't even do anything for my oily t-zone. I do like the BE blushes and all over face color but something is just off with the foundation because all of the imperfections on my face are accentuated with this. I gave it 2 lippies because it is natural and animal friendly, but I will not be purchasing this again.
Even though this color does not show up on my higly pigmented lips, it still gets 5 lippies just for being the greateset lip gloss I have ever purchased. Since this color doesn't really show up on my lips I use this as my lip balm because it is that moisturizing. This is how every gloss/balm should be, nice subtle color, subtle shine, no weird smell/taste, super moisturizing without the sticky gloppy feeling. I will definitaly purchse again but in another shade, such as Grenadine, Cassis, or Kir.
Lip Gloss -Laura Mercier - Bronze Glitz Riche Colour Glace

I cannot believe that I am the first one to write a review for this lip glace because it is AMAZING!!! This is my HG lip gloss and believe me I have tried hundreds. The feel is very moisturing, it doesn't have a bad smell/taste and the color is just gorgeous. It is a bronzy-red color with gold and silver shimmer in it. The SA paired this lip glace with my LM lip kisses in Nude Beach and boy did it make my lips POP!!!!! I can also wear this alone because it gives my highly pigmented lips some oomph, depth and slight color. I think this can be worn on most colors in the red/pink family. I just can't say enough about how wonderful the color is....you just have to try it. Definitely a much better color than Ambre Rose Glace and I will keep buying this over and over. As a warning, the packaging of this lip gloss is the worst!! Just like Chanel Glossimers, the gloss runs all up along the wand and gets wasted. They should come up with a better solution for this, but if it ever gets discontinued I will be so so sad. :( UPDATE: It seems that LM has gotten rid of the Riche Colour Glace line because I can't find this on the Sephora or LM website. I am so so sad! >:(
This color gives me a natural flush when I don't wear foundation, but when I do, it hardly shows up on my light medium skin. I guess I need something with a little more pop so I will try BE fruit cocktail and see how that works for me. I do like LM blushes very much because you can build them for a natural look and they don't break me out. If I was a bit more fair I could really see this being my go-to blush so I will not buy again because it doesn't show up enough me.
This is my 3rd LM lip glace and I bought this after reading the reviews for it here and I really don't see that big deal about it. It does absolutely nothing for my highly pigmented lips except add shine and shimmer to them, but no color. I will go back to my HG LM Bronze Glitz Colour Riche Lip gloss instead.
I took one lippie off because even though this lip glace looks good over my Amethyst lip colour, it doesn't show up on my highly pigmented lips at all. As with all LM lip glaces, I love the moinsturizing properties it has and it doesn't have an ungly taste or smell like her lipsticks, which I can't stand. I like my glosses to give my lips some color so I don't think I will buy this one again. I will buy her Colour Riche lip gloss in Bronze Glitz again....this one is my HG lip gloss!
I had to take one lippie off because I can't stand the smell or taste of this. I wish LM lipsticks tasted and smelled as good as her lip kisses. Anyway this is a complex color in that it is mauvy-dark pinkish color. I got this along with violet glace and when I pair them together....VERY NICE!!! I will not buy this again due to the smell and taste though. :(
This is my first lip kisses lip stick and I love it! The feel is wonderful and moisturing and the color is a perfect nude/pink color. When I am just bumming around home and I want to wear something with a little more color to keep my lips moisturized I usually reach for this. I will definitely buy again.
WOW!!! What can I say about this color except that I LOVE it!!!!. The color is nothing that I thought it would be and even my mum commented on how nice it looks on my short well-manicured nails. It looks so put together especially on short nails so you don't look so Elvira-ish. Too bad you can't find this anymore but I am sure I can find it on ebay! Will buy it again and again!!!
I bought this after reading the raves about it in Allure mag. The color looks good on my light-medium complexion and I love the way the peachy-pink color gives my skin a nice glow, but I can't stand the shimmer that it has. I could really do without that and that is why I don't think I will buy this again. Other than that, it is a nice color.
