I do not like this product. I have very fair skin, and even though this claims to be "light," it seems very orangey and browny. I know this is a tinted mosturizer, but I was hoping for a little bit more coverage than was offered. Makes my face feel greasy and dirty, and my forehead broke out in high shine. I will not be using this again.
This is a very pigmented hot pink colour. It's not something I feel like I could apply without checking myself afterwards, as the colour can be quite strong. Like others have said, too much can make you look far too done up and "Barbie-ish." I love that this gloss is not too sticky, but I wish it were more sheer.
I have C-20. This definitely didn't work for me (unfortunately, since it's expensive to just throw away). I have found it impossible to find the correct shade, even with a SA, the shades are all too orange-y for me it seems. It looks like clown makeup, caked on, and settled into every crevice or line in my face. It only gets more disgusting as the day wears on...just awful! Will throw this out and never ever buy again!
This reminds me so much of when I was in highschool, when it first came out - EVERYONE was wearing it! I like the smell, but I find there is something in it that smells like dill pickles, slightly off-putting. Definitely a daytime scent. As I get older I find myself searching for a more sophisticated scent. I think this is great for university aged girls, so as I leave that period of my life, I think it's time to retire it.

I was a stupid girl and bought a HUGE bottle of this without trying it out, because it was on sale (a very good sale, might I add). I love the smell of Fantasy, so I thought this might be an even sexier, more grown-up version of it. I was wrong, this is sickly sweet, and smells like something a young girl might wear. My boyfriend hates it, and it makes me feel nauseaus. The bottle is gorgeous, but unfortunately that's about it! It has gone untouched.
Very energizing, good as a "pick-me-up" on a sleepy morning! The citrusy grapefruit smell is lovely and fresh, but I prefer a sexier, muskier perfume, so I have left this one behind. I find that all GAP perfumes are quite overpowering, one spray is definitely enough.
The first perfume I ever bought! I was in grade 8, and it made me feel like such a woman! I love the scent, but I find on me it could be very overpowering, one spritz was definitely enough. One thing I found was that after about a year, the scent turned very chemically and harsh.
This perfume doesn't do much for me. I find the packaging/marketing boring, and in fact, it reminds me of something a middle aged woman would wear (admittedly, this may be because it's my Mom's perfume!). There's nothing sexy or intriguing about the scent. Dull.
Mmm, what a yummy scent, just like orange creamsicle! The shape of the bottle is awful though, with the tapered mouth it's sometimes hard to get out. Does well at moisturizing my skin, although sometimes it irritates it slightly and makes it a bit red. Sadly, I need something a little stronger for the winter time here in Canada.
This certainly did not work on me. It completely dried out my combination skin, and did not help with breakouts. My skin looked much worse after using this than before. I gave it awhile, as my doctor said sometimes your body needs some time to adjust, but I guess that just never happened. Threw this out and will not buy again!
What an inexpensive & wonderful product! Great for lips of course, especially in the winter, but one of the best things to do is to slather your feet and hands with them before bed time, then put on socks and a pair of gloves to keep the moisture in while you're sleeping. Fantastic! Tried and true product.
I'm not such a fan of this product. I bought the one with SPF, and I find it extremely waxy - it don't feel like my lips every fully absorb this. It also gave my lips a pale, almost white sheen - not the most attractive of shades. I tried to wear lipstick on top of it, and the two shades mixed into a very disgusting combination. I ended up throwing it out, and of course, I will not buy it again. I don't see what the hype is about.
The one, the only. Nothing works on my dry lips like this does, and it's so cheap! I've come to love the taste, and the tingling is very satisfying. I can never get enough of this stuff, I swear, it must be addictive!

What a sweet, light, and girly scent - I love to wear it in the springtime in a new dress! It makes me feel pretty & so feminine. Unfortunately, I have a hard time finding this where I live. For some reason, by boyfriend does not like it (though I won't let that stop me), nor my Dad - they both think it's a little too girly.

Delicious smell, but I find it does not help with my winter dry lips at all. Also, it doesn't last very long. I wouldn't buy it again, I much prefer something stronger and more effective (also cheaper) like Carmex.
