Best For: any time, lip staining, high intense gloss, long lasting (small amount goes a long way), good value for quality product
I became hooked on this type of gloss from a few years ago when the shade "Rose" (not really ROSE at all, more of a nude blush tone with a LOT of golden flecks/ shimmer) was offered as a free sample. I was actually upset that was the only sample I could get at the time (I wanted the cleanser, what did I know). However, I immediately bought 2 more, then again 2 before it was discontinued. I am 3/4 through my second-to-last tube and sad. What a FIND!!! Then, this spring I ran to the counter and once again was initially upset NONE of these have any added shimmer at all. No flecks, no gold...nothing. NOTHING BUT GLORIOUS SHINE!!! As often with this product, I was sold immediately. I like the different style of the deep, rich shine of pure color withOUT the shimmer added. I bought the Bare Glow, Berry Lush and Coral Chic (and I was AGAIN pleasantly surprised to find it did NOT turn orange on me as most "coral" tones tend to do...it actually went more of a nude pink which was lovely). When I want an added shimmer, I layer on Shimmering Mirage from the other pure color gloss line (I think that one is discontinued, but some stores still stock it till it is gone for good...a back up for adding shimmer to this is the Opal finish which looks perfect on the Coral Chic). These do SEEM thick if you apply straight to your lips. I just squeeze a drop on my bottom lip and smudge it onto my upper lip by rubbing my lips together. It not only smooths and thins the texture, but causes the color to adhere or "stain" better for long-lasting color without the sensation of glue. These colors are ALL gorgeous, fresh and easy to wear. AWESOME product and while it is constantly evolving, I find I am never disappointed despite my pre-conceptions! Try it and you are likely to be pleased as well.
This was the first time I purchased an Estee Lauder lip gloss and I absolutely LOVE it! It is a bit thick but that's not a complaint. The color lasts a long time, the shine is amazing and fortunately it doesn't have a tooty-fruity taste! I purchased Vixen Plum and it's absolutely gorgeous (not quite as pictured on the website). I like it so well I intend to purchase another color; something more neutral this time. I highly recommend this; you definitely won't go wrong!
Best For: easy to use and control, sensitive skin friendly
It is thick and sticky and not so high gloss, but this is a first time I have used something like this, so I really like and enjoy it. I got the three-color-gift-set when I purchased the Sensuous Nude and the Purify Mud Foam for my mom & my aunt, and meant to send those lip gloss to them as well, but I decided to keep them for myself give them a try. The Berry Lush color goes very well with the Rose Tea color lipstick from Estee Lauder as well. The Coral Chic & Flashdance color really helps enhance my natural lip color and the Natural Nude color lipstick. I have a very tan skin and I have so much color on my lips and very sensitive lips also. I’m very picky when it comes to using lipsticks, but so far this High Gloss doesn’t give me a rash on my lips, which I’m very happy about.
One of the problems I've had with lip glosses is the dryness once it starts fading. This product delivers with a brightening effect for my face and continues to moisturize after fading. I really get compliments and will definitely buy more colors.
I bought this in Flash Dance. If you like your lipgloss to be thick and sticky, go for it. I personally prefer something softer and more spreadable. The color did not suit me - Flash Dance is a bright sharp candy pink which sat on my lips like an unpleasant lump and clashed with the natural color of my lips. Next time I shall go to the store to check it out first.
I bought all the colors and just absolutely adore them! they smell so good and smells absolutely great! it is thick , but not too thick. just the right feel on my lips. I have been using Estee Lauder products religiously for the past 6-7 years and so far no disappointment. Highly recommend this product! My mom got 3 of the new colors and loves them so much!
In Crystal Clear, this is a gorgeous, thick, wet, wet, long-last, lusious, kiss-me LIP GLOSS- Like the old days! Looks like water glistening on the lips.
PERFECT. Seems like such a simple product concept, but, is nearly impossible to find! Thank GOD- No fruity flavor! Just a BASIC, thick, wet, long-last gloss.
It's .5 oz (1/2 oz.). The tube is long & narrow, w/ gold-detailing (writing on the outside of the tube). Very elegant presentation, comfortable to hold, easy to squeeze a dab out, & apply- THANK GOD (again!)- NO WAND- Just a small hole in the slanted, smooth-tip plastic dispenser end (under the gold cap). Nothing to monkey around with. Apply direct from tube, spread on lips. Done. Fast, easy, simple, thick, decadently wet, moisturizing, kiss-me gorgeous.
I bought the coral chic. This is a very pretty sheer color. I think it looks too dark in the picture of just the gloss smeared all over... but again, very pretty. It stays on for a while, I didn't feel the need to reapply more than every few hours.
This gloss is sticky, not overly sticky... but the edged of my lips can really feel a glued quality when I just barely open my mouth or talk. This also doesn't feel very smooth and moisturizing on.
