I found this Chocolate Cherry gloss (along with Berry Sweet- a LE re-promote of Berry Bella, and Cinnamon Apple) at my local Dollar Tree. It comes with the updated Shinylicious packaging, and is dark brownish-red in color.

I bought it hoping for a sophisticated red gloss (like the wonderful L'Oreal Raspberry Smash) but on my lips, it applies streaky (only somewhat better with a lip brush) and the color, while pigmented, is a bit harsh for my pale coloring. If the consistency was better and a little lighter, I would love to use it more. The scent is pleasing, not too over powering of (fake) chocolate cherry.

Overall, not too bad of a gloss; it may work better on others, but I wouldn't repurchase.

Maybe I'll be one of those few people who like the fuzzy slant applicator of this squeeze tube lip gloss.

I love it in a sense that, it's like using a wand-sponge-on applicator from other lip glosses, which i find more hygienic than a plastic slant applicator, which i find messy and more UNHYGIENIC!

color: it appears reddish brown in the tube but goes on sheer on lips w/a slight tint to it. in my medium pigmented lips, it appears mauve color.

texture: smooth, very fine, and shiny! i like the fact that it doesn't have shimmers to it!

odor: although it's choco cherry, i didn't smell any choco scent; it's more of cherry scent

taste: you may not be able to tell the sweet taste by just licking it but when you suck your lip, then that's the time that you'll be able to taste the sweetness!

This gloss is a gorgeou dark pink/reddish tone. Since it's fairly sheer, it has the appearance of a pricey just-bitten color lip stain.


It's not gummy or tacky, and has just the right amount of shine--glossy without being over-the-top porn-star uber shiny. It just lasts as long as your normal gloss, so no extra points there.


It has a faint chocolatey smell, but it's not obvious when you're wearing it. I'm really smell-sensitive, and I didn't find the scent strong or obtrusive.


The packaging is okay--while looking a little kiddie and cheap--the applicator is a nice curved, spongy-tipped thing that makes application easy. It's also nice that the tube is flattish and fairly small, I hate those big tubes with their long, gummy applicator sticks!


Overall low cost, great color, average wearing power.

Love this color. It is so appropriately named: gives my already brownish lips a beautiful brownish cherry punch of color. At first I hated it because it went on clear when I tried to use the built-in doe-foot applicator or my finger. Then I used my lip brush and found that the gloss goes on more pigmented than before. I wore it to MAC one day, and a MA said she loved my lip color and asked for the name of it. This one is definitely a keeper.

The color is okay, but it looks different in the tube. Also, it really doesn't last long so I find myself constantly re-applying it. Beware-it has a cheap foam applicator that I can't stand and the smell is horrible!

mmmm love this color! my boyfriend picked it up for me on a whim one day and although i thought it was sweet of him to think of me at the store, i was scared of the color! i am pretty fair and usually stay away from such deep shades. but when i put it on i LOVED it. its definitely a YLBB color, but thats not to say the color isnt true to what you see in the tube. i guess i just didnt realize how great that color would look layered OVER the natural color of my lips. because it is a fairly rich formula for a drug store gloss the color does come out true. true but also sheer. it looks gorgeous on, it tastes sort of sweet, and its a great consistency. doest last all that long but fairly long for a drug store gloss. i want more shiny-licious glosses!
