I would complain about this feeling heavy and tacky buy that's hat makes it longwearing. At the two hour mark these are still very much on the lips and still glossy. These could easily go on to hour 3 and 4. Not so sure about 8 hours XD, but these last longer than most standard drugstore lipsticks and many glosses I have tried. They are tacky which is WHY they stay on. Thinner, slippery glosses fade REALLY quickly. Case in point: the lighter colors of the $10 Loreal Color Riche Shine Lipstick (which is actually a balm/gloss in a stick); that one completely fades away before the 2 hour mark. This NYC gloss is $3! I mean, its a steal and they look great on.

I would repurchase.

I bought two of these. Ruby Pink and Cherry Ever After.

These are very tacky lip glosses. When I have to talk a lot, opening and closing my mouth almost hurts. Hair sticks to them like crazy.

They smell great when you first put them on. Ruby Pink smells like grapefruit and bubblegum, Cherry smells like...cherry. The smell doesn't last too long though.

Ruby Pink is a pale, milky pink with some opalescent blue/pink shimmer on the tube. It looks like clear gloss when you wear it though, you see the color momentarily when you put it on, but it disappears, leaving you with clear gloss, basically. Cherry Ever After shows more color on the lips - a sheer, wearable red.

These are in a tube with a long, slanted, firm applicator that is nice.

I'd rather find a less sticky gloss - either clear or more pigmented. I need to talk without pain!

I bought this in midnight rose and while the color was very pretty, this is the stickiest lip gloss I've ever used. I could not take it and threw it away. My lips felt so tacky and were sticking together, it was awful. Will never purchase another.

I have this in Mauving All Night, which is just the prettiest soft mauve rose color. Although this doesn't last 8 hours, I do feel it's longer lasting than most glosses. For $2.99, you can't go wrong experimenting with one of these.

I am totally underwhelmed by this lip gloss. I bought Midnight Rose,which is a beautiful color in the tube. It does not give much color to my lips, however. There is not a whole lot of pigment, which I know is more often than not the case with lip gloss. But the little bit of pigment there is wears off quite quickly. You are left with product on your lips for quite a while, but not color.

On the plus side, I did not find these to be drying at all. But I want some color, and I want the color to stay for more than half an hour.

After many tries with this, today I threw it away. I would not buy any more of these.

Ok, let me start this review by saying that I am REALLY picky when it comes to lip gloss. In fact, I usually hate it. It's sticky, it's messy, my hair gets stuck in it and causes it to streak it all around my mouth, and it rubs off too easily. I DON'T want to look like I have vinyl lips, I DON'T like it to be full of shimmer, and I DON'T like it when the color so rich that it looks like a lipstick. I would rather wear lipstick and not deal with the gooey hassle that is lip gloss. But I want to like lip gloss, so every now and then, I pick up a cheap one that I have never tried before.

I know this lip gloss isn't organic, or natural, or free of chemicals. But I really, really like it. I bought this gloss in Round the Clock Ruby, and it's perfect for me. The red goes on a rich color, but not too thick and rich, and it's not too sticky, and it's not shimmery. It's a nice, sheer red that gives my lips just enough color and shine to be complimentary.

Other people might not like the lack of super-duper-vinyl-lips-shine, shimmer, or rich color this gloss has, but I really love it. I wish I could find a gloss like this in an organic line. Until then, I will buy this gloss.

These are cheap, which I love, and smell fruity, which I don't mind and the colors are pretty. Problem is, they're STICKY AS ALL GET OUT! And they barely last an hour, these are called 8 hour? Fuggetaboutit!

The color i got was perpetually pink #452. This color is very nice and pigmented on the lips and the smell is fruity that doesnt bother me , but this product does not at all stay on for 8 hrs as said on the packaging.It leaves a sticky feeling on the lips which i dont like and easily comes off throughout the day.

Blah. I have this in the shade " #461 Coffee Break". It's a bronze copper color, pretty much like a penny. I got this when it was like 40% off at Rite-Aid, plus I had a coupon. I can't remember how much it came out to be, but it was probably less than $2. The original price I think is over $3. The color is okay, (it sort of reminds me of "Cocoalicious" by Victoria's Secret). I really don't care for this and I know that I won't get this again. It looks alright on my lips, but the smell is overwhelmingly metallic. It's hard to focus on the shade because the odor of it, and the formula is not all that great either. It's not super sticky, but I can feel the gloss on my lips, and I love those creamy kind of glosses that I can't really feel, because they're so smooth and subtle. I can't say whether it truly lasts as long as up to 8 hours as it claims, because I was so ready to wipe it off. I could no longer tolerate the smell.

I have this in Cherry Ever After. The gloss does not last much longer than other glosses. HOWEVER, this particular shade is super flattering and easy to wear. I will definitely buy this gloss again and look forward to trying out more shades.
