Packaging is beautiful, gloss looks pretty on its own and layers over lipstick. But for the price - meh. Any other gloss would do the same thing.

I love the formula. And there's actually more product in here than other similarly priced high end lip glosses.

The color is not universally flattering though. I am around n18-- fair and neutral, pulling slightly warm. And I find this orangey on me. It looks like I ate an orange lollipop. I definitely don't love the shade for daily wear. I usually need to put something over or under it.

I wish fussy came out first bc it is way more flattering on me. And is an ideal one and done shade.

This makes me look and feel beautiful! Hydrated plump lips that look polished and grown up in a good way - and I thought I was too old for wearing a gloss (hating that plastic-like feeling and smell of ordinary glosses)... The colour "Glow" looks perfect on my NC25 skin with slightly mauvish lips, it looks elegant and goes with everything. I reach for this gloss daily because it feels so carefree and luxurious on my lips. A HG for sure in my lipstick wardrobe.

This review is for the original color, which I don't like as much as the newer shades. I'm amazed by how plush this feels on the lips, maybe the moist moisturizing lip gloss I've ever used. Unlike some l/g that seem moisturizing but then actually dries out your lips over time, I don't think this one does that. The shine is also spectacular. But my main issues are with the color and lasting power. I can understand why so many love this color, because it's quite neutral so it probably suits a lot of different skin tones. Just not mine (NW20). It turns a little orangey and kind of washes me out. I recently bought Diamond Milk, which suits me better. It's a little cooler toned, mostly clear, but with a tinge of pink and a lot of shine. It looks milky (obviously) in the tube but it looks more natural once applied.

For both shades though I'm frustrated that it doesn't last much more than an hour for me. I understand that most glosses don't have staying power beyond a few hours, but I found this one to be especially short in its lasting power. Then again, it doesn't bill itself as long wearing.

I was hesitant to spend $18 on a lipgloss, but Fenty made it worth it. High shine, wet appearance , but not oily looking. The scent , to me, is a mix between peach bubblegum and pink starburst. Fenty Glow is pretty, but their new shade Fu$$y , is beautiful. It has the same scent as the original, with just a slight strawberry scent added. In the tube, it looks like it will be dusty light pink, but on the lips, it just adds a subtle pink tint , with the same high shine that I love . Fenty Glow and Fu$$y are different enough to own both .

Smells amazing. Makes the lips very shiny and "wet". I love this for days when I don't want to wear makeup but I still want to look polished, such as, when traveling. The only negative is it's very thick and sticky.

There's not many lip glosses that are perfect for any occasion - be it no make-up days or full make-up days. Most are either too orange or too pink, it's hard to find the something universal. Not Gloss Bomb! This looks flattering on my tone regardless of what else is on (or not on) my face.
It's also hydrating, the texture is light and not overly sticky or heavy. The applicator is quite large and therefore makes it easy to apply and it lasts about 3-4 hours - and this is coming from someone who sips on water constantly throughout the day!
The only slight cons are: it is slightly pricey for a gloss and the scent is not subtle, I keep catching it throughout the day, but luckily I'm not averse to it. However it definitely won't be to everyone's liking...it's one of those love or hate ones so best to keep in mind as it's right under your nose the whole day and there's no getting away from that!

If there is such a thing as a universal lip color, this sheer, warm, peachy brown might be it. Despite the gold and silver shimmer it doesn't come across as a sparkly gloss in person. The finish is a wet-looking high shine. Seriously, like a mirror shine. It feels very plush and oily on the lips without being too sticky. There is zero noticeable grittiness from the shimmer particles. Best of all, it lasts three hours, which is about three times longer than any other lip gloss I've tried. Well done, Fenty.

I do have three complaints:
1. Bulky packaging
2. Peach bubblegum scent - blergh
3. I was not immediately transformed into a clone of Rihanna as Fenty's ad campaign led me to believe would happen T_T

All kidding aside, I do really like the formula. I won't be repurchasing mainly because of the perfume but also because I'm not about to make paying $20 for lip gloss a regular occurrence in my life.
