Colourpop's Ultra Glossy lip products are 100% my favourites of their lines. I own quite a few of them from the creme finishes like Weho and Fairy Floss to the metallics and so on...there are a few that apply a little more streaky than the rest, Bestie being one of them. However, they're workable and for the price, I simply can't justify deducting a star. My ONLY grip with Colourpop is that so many of their swatch pictures are inaccurate to the shades customers receive. I don't know if it's because of how they edit their pictures for online or if their pigmentation isn't quality controlled, but regardless, I have drawers full of Colourpop things and even though I regularly shop high end too, I use Colourpop in some form or another almost daily and the glossy lips are so smooth and non-sticky. I find them comparable to the satin even, especially the creme finish glosses. They're all worth it though, hands down.

Some of the best drugstore lip glosses I have ever tried! A beautiful range of colors, from nudes and pinks to brighter, bolder reds and purples. Highly-pigmented, buttery, and surprisingly long-wearing. Plus they have a delectable vanilla cake scent - yum! They are also all named after desserts, which I find super-cute. The only reason I wouldn't give these 5 stars is that I find that many of the lighter shades in this collection can look very much the same when put on the lips. There are many lighter nude, pink, and light purple shades that I don't think you'd be able to discern from one another. For this reason, I don't find it necessary to buy too many shades of this product - it's not worth the money to buy 5 shades that are nearly the same when applied. I do have a few in the range though - a nude/brown (Tiramisu), a pink (Maple Blondie), and an orange/red (Peach Cobbler). No need, in my opinion, to buy the whole collection, unless you are a huge lip gloss fan!

Wearing this lip gloss is a pleasure. Of all the ones I have tried is without a doubt the best quality and duration. It moisturizes very well and the color maintains its pigmentation for a long time. It is distributed evenly on the lips and as it says its description can be used alone or on top of another product.It is very easy to apply this lip gloss with the same applicator that it brings. The right amount of product to distribute in the whole mouth.Having dry lips, mine often absorb lipsticks and glosses with admirable speed, but not my dear Pink Lemonade. I would say it lasts about 3 hours, a record for me.In general: it is an excellent gloss for those who want to invest in a nice color that offers them good duration and coverage. For those who do not feel very seduced by this particular color but are interested in the product itself, I would recommend that you go through Mac as they have a variety of colors available and sure to find the perfect one for your style.

I absolutely LOVE this glossy stain. usually, I prefer wearing liquid lip stains but something about this glossy stain had me mesmerized for over 3 months before I purchased it. with the price point being quite high I had to take a minute before I committed to a lip product this pricey. finally I took the plunge and it was 100% worth it! I love everything about this lip stain. you can definitely feel the luxury in the product. it is long lasting and very pigmented for a glossy stain. the finish did not wear off quickly and when it eventually did the pigment was still there. this is my only ysl purchase and I will definitely be purchasing more of these glossy stains in the future! :)

A friend recommended this to me and I had to try it. I am not a fan of the price - after finding Colourpop and the amazing quality of their lip products for such a low price it has been hard for me to spend money on pricier lip products from other brands. Anyhow... At first I was not a fan of the scent but it grew on me and is really nice and not overpowering. The formula is thick without being sticky and uncomfortable which I like. The color is universal enough to be flattering for all skin tones. I also like that I can throw this on and wear it solo or over a lipstick to give it some dimension and shine. I do wish this was longer lasting but lip glosses aren’t really known for their staying power. I think this is definitely a perfect lip gloss for everyone’s summer makeup bag though. I’d repurchase.
