In presentation, this lip gloss looked great: great packaging (a mirror on the side of the container=Genius!) and it looked like a beautiful berry pink. However, the gloss itself left much to be desired. The color was almost nonexisitant, it pretty much looked clear on my lips. However, it did have a nice strawberry scent to it. Would not purchase this on my own.

Not quite gloss or color
Sampled

What I look for in a lip gloss is both shine and color. This product states that it has a sheer color. That's true. It essentially matches the color of my lips (I had Berry). But when I saw the amazing color in the tube, I was hoping that would be the color of the lip gloss.

Two other things it promises is high gloss and lasting power. However, it has neither. The gloss is light and doesn't really do anything for the lips but highlight them. I would have preferred a thicker gloss to really get a high shine that shapes the lips. So it's an extremely thin gloss. It also doesn't last, the slight color or gloss. You need to reapply it every hour or so.

It isn't sticky, however. That's nice. And I did love the mirror on the package. I usually apply lip gloss on the bus or in class. So that made it much easier. I would not buy this product though, until the color is deeper/pigmented and the gloss actually glossy.

Too smelly for regular use
Sampled

This gloss is a great color (I ended up with the pink), not crazy sticky, and I love the mirror on the side. It's really nice that the sample size is the real size, too. But the smell is much too strong for me to wear it regularly - think fruity candy smelly. I'll still use it, I think, but not as often as I would.

Smelled great...

...but I didn't like the texture. It's the kind of lipgloss that when then wind blows, your hair sticks to your lips. I did like how it looked on, and loved the mirror. I have long hair so my hair was constantly sticking to my lips. :(

Too Sticky, Wouldn't Spend The Money

I really guess I had a different experience with this product.

I found it goopy and too sticky for constant wear. The product was messy and stringy when taking the applicator out of the tube. The color was almost too subtle to pick up without putting on a ridiculous amount of the product.

I love the idea of the mirror on the side, and the smell/taste was lovely. Other than that, I was not a fan.

Ehhh just OK

This was just "OK" the color I received was so sheer it looked clear when on. While it is super shiny for the first 15 minutes or so, the shine doesn't last and definitely dried out my lips. Don't understand what all the hype is about. Did love the built in mirror!

Too Bright
Sampled

There's nothing wrong with the product. The Lipgloss is light to the touch. I just didn't like the color. The color that I got from Birchbox was just too bright for me. I prefer neutral colors.

ModelCo Shine Gloss-Berry Pink
Sampled

The packaging is very nice, the mirror on the side is pure genius. The strawberry scent isn't too overwhelming and it goes away pretty soon after application. The color is a nice sheer pink that seems like it would look good on everyone. The only shortcomings of this product would be its' sticky texture.

Sticky stuff,

Did not like this lip gloss at all!! Very sticky on lips! It wasn't worth the shine, I couldn't wait to rub it off. Nice color though.
