This is a review for the Ulta Shiny SHEER lip glosses circa 2016. I picked these up for $3 each which about all they are worth. For the regular price of $9, I would pass. (But for $3? Who cares - I can even let my 11 year old pick out a few.)

I tried Sheer Fuschia (not scary to wear at all) and Sheer Mauve (very easy to ear - YLBB).

Lightly scented (candy/sweet vanilla) and lightly pigmented. SUper sheer. A bitt sticky. I much prefer other brands - but the glosses I love the most costs a hell of alot more than $3.

Good for playtime and makeup experimentation.

I picked this up as part of a buy 3 for $9 special. For $3, I think it's a good deal. I got the mauve because I didn't want a lot of color, the "MLBB" look (I'm fair and cool toned).

I love the vanilla smell that fades away as soon as it's applied. The gloss didn't feel overly sticky or thick; it felt moisturizing and was shiny. It didn't last real long, only about 1-2 hours.

I would prefer a wand applicator instead of the brush because the brush makes it difficult to apply evenly; I get small globs of lip gloss that I just smooth out with my fingertips.

I was really excited about this until I tried it. Ulta products were on sale, BOGO, as they often are, so I picked this up in Whisper, hoping it would be a good neutral. There is an Ulta gloss that I like very much, but all of its info has worn off my tube, so I took a shot and hoped it was this. It's not. In the tube, this looks like a YLBB but with just a hint of sparkle. I've been using it for a little over a week and I'm thinking about tossing it. The smell (which in turn impacts the taste, at least for me) is cheap and chemical, like a fake almost fruity scent. The texture is sticky, which is fine; however, the color is so very sheer that it is really just providing shine - and shine it does. It is so shiny that it and/or the hint of color (which on me is redder than I was expecting - it is not red in the tube) make my lips look smaller than normal. I am also unimpressed with the tiny amount of product that comes out on the sponge-tipped applicator. It seems like the gloss is so thick or so forced into the tube that it creates resistance on the wand. The price - at least considering the frequent sales - is pretty low, so I don't regret taking a chance on it, but I won't repurchase.

This is NOT super shiny lipgloss. I have to put a ton of coats on to feel like I have any lip gloss on at all. Very cheap quality-like something you'd find at the Dollar Store. I would not buy again

It goes on easily but the taste, stickiness, and lack of nice color makes it TERRIBLE. Would never buy another lip gloss that is Ulta Brand..

I normally like lip glosses, but this product didn't really work for me at all, as it looked clear. I'm just glad that the mini tube was free as part of a gift bag when my new Ulta had their opening sale. I do like other Ulta products, but not this.

I lucked out and found the last 01 "Bellini" in the sale bin at Ulta. This is the perfect pink for me. Balanced between peachy and and purple, this is a wonderful bright pink gloss that goes on light, bright and sheer, with a barely perceptible gold shimmer. It is indeed, Super Shiny, but it is also a featherweight formula with a slight taste of melon.

Too bad they have discontinued this. It's a shame. This could very well end of my my casual summer color.

Packaging is cheap and poor, it's very difficult to get the product out of the tube, goes on uneven, and does not last. However, the two shades I bought (Sublime and Whisper) both look fantastic on me and come out the shade they were in the tube which is a plus. That said, I would put the value of these lip glosses at about half of what Ulta charges. Can't recommend.

I have 4 colors of these -- Cosmo, Charmed, Bellini, and Flirtini. Charmed and Cosmo came as samples with a gift set, and I got the other two in full size. These are good glosses. They aren't sticky or glittery, and give your lips a nice shine. The colors I got as samples have a little more color than my full size ones, but I like them all the same. I only get these when they're on sale because $8 for one is a little pricey, but if you do find a sale, I suggest you pick them up
