Most Helpful Positive Review Lovely gloss but potential packaging issue
The crystal lip gloss is the same high quality I have come to expect from Anastasia products. The gloss itself is a great consistency: silky and not sticky. It goes on smoothly and looks great on bare lips or perfectly highlights and moistens colored lips. The main ingredient is dimethicone, which is a great emollient. I tested it first on slightly dry lips (just too excited to try it out to prep my lips) and after it wore off, my lips were soft and plump! I wouldn't go so far as to say it could replace a chap stick but it's definitely a nice perk.
It doesn't have any scent or flavor, which I appreciate.
The wand is soft and flexible (see video) and long enough to get almost every last drop from the bottle.
The packaging is beautiful but my main issue is that it was leaking inside the box when I got it! You can see in my picture that the inside of the box is soaked with product and the bottle was goopy when I pulled it out. This brings a myriad of concerns: How much product was wasted? Will it open and leak in my purse or drawer? Did someone already open and use it? Is it safe?
Overall, I do recommend this if you're looking for a nice clear gloss. Just make sure to check for leaks!
Most Helpful Critical Review It's a gloss.
That's honestly it, it's a gloss. It's literally crystal clear, not milky clear, which explains the name. It's not sticky or thick at all which is great (think Mac lipglass which is lips stuck together thick and sticky), it's thicker than a lip oil though, however it fades within 15 minutes if not faster for me which is typical of a gloss. I do however think you could get the same quality product (as in formula) out of a drugstore clear gloss like a nyx, wet n wild or even elf. I genuinely think you're paying for packaging mostly which is no doubt beautiful. The applicator is nothing revolutionary but it does apply a nice amount of product and I haven't had to dip twice to cover my lips. You get a solid amount of product in the tube (nyx gloss for reference is .11 fl oz/ 3.4 ml vs this which is .16 fl oz/ 4.8 ml) so that's a huge bonus which is why it mainly has 3 stars for me. It loss stars because I have other products that are WAYY cheaper with similar formulas. But if you're a gloss lover and have a bit of money to splurge I'd give it a try.

loved this gloss! Not super sticky and somehow felt moisturizing. Great smell and packaging.
Honestly just not that great
sambinfl from undisclosed
I really wanted to love this lip gloss and I was super excited to get it, but it just wasn't long lasting at all. It's you're standard clear lip gloss. Not worth the price. The packaging was great, but the product itself, not so much.
Crystal Lip Gloss
jessicag627 from undisclosed
This is a standard clear lip gloss. The packaging is nice but there are some issues. When I received my lip gloss it was sticky and leaking a little. It's super shiny and not too sticky on the lips. I want to say it has a peach-like smell which is ok but not my favorite scent. I am using it and enjoying it since I did get it free from Influenster but likely won't purchase once I'm out.
I mean, it's a clear lip gloss...
dziewczynka from undisclosed
I've tried wearing this several times now, and it's not for me. While the packaging is pretty and it has a great scent comparable to some of the Benefit and Tarte products, I don't think the quality matches the price. It lasts less than an hour on my lips even when primed and feels thicker than I prefer in a gloss. It's an okay option, but if I'm purchasing a new clear lip gloss for myself I'll probably reach for an Essence one from the drugstore.
perfect amount of gloss!
heyglowgeous from undisclosed
This lip gloss feels nourishing and moisturizing. It doesn't feel heavy - it feels very nice! The non-sticky formula feels great while you wear it. It doesn't clump up and wears evenly. This lip gloss makes your lips pronounced without it looking like too much gloss. I use this alone or over lipstick. I love it!
Not for me
pando from undisclosed
The first two words that come to mind are thick and sticky. While it gives a decent shine, my lips feel coated in petroleum jelly and my hair constantly gets stuck to it. The packaging is beautiful, as is usual for ABH products. It feels nice and weighty in my hands.
I wanted to love it, but it's just not for me.
nothing wrong with more gloss!
bitofjess from undisclosed
This lip gloss isn't super thick or too runny, just the perfect sheen! While there are more dupes to this high end lip gloss, this is gloss will last for a long time on your vanity. It smells peachy and moisturizes your lips. The applicator is a long wand but not wobbley at all. No reapplication needed since your lips will look soft and smooth.
glossy, not sticky!
dressingoptimistical from undisclosed
The early 2000's are coming back in a big way but I am not mad about it. This gloss is glossy but not sticky, layers really well on top of lipstick or on its own and is a good moisturizing formula. It smells nice, looks very shiny and I will definitely be keeping it in my purse!
Glossy Lips Are Back
nadiney_sheepy from undisclosed
Love that glossy lips are back! This gloss was easy to use and not too sticky. I hate super thick sticky feeling gloss. It is vary shinny and would look nice over a matte lipstick.
meghang14 from undisclosed
Love this clear gloss. It is shiny without being too thick or tacky. Even holds under a mask. Decently hydrating, too. Keep this in my bag for a gloss touch up. Would be a great add to a matte color.
averymikayla11 from undisclosed
I seriously love this gloss! The smell reminds me of a tropical vacation but it's not too overpowering. It's not sticky at all and feels almost more like a lip oil, which I really love! This has become my everyday go-to and I'm really glad I tried it!

This lip gloss adds a beautiful glisten to your lips! It accentuates your lip color￼ while also ￼moisturizing.
My New FAVORITE Lip Gloss
candygirl7585 from undisclosed
This became my favorite lip gloss by the second wear! It is shiny, yet not sticky; moisturizing and doesn't wipe off. What more could you ask for?! I can apply it before going into work, put on my mask then get to my desk and remove my mask for a webcam meeting with it still beautifully glossy and none of it wiped off on my mask. My mask didn't even stick to it, things I wouldn't have thought of a year ago but now a daily thought during makeup application. This gloss is absolutely worth purchasing and becoming a staple of daily routine and someday date night routine.

Love this gloss! Very shiny and not too sticky, goes well with the highlighter! Highly recommend.
ruthinwonderlvnd from undisclosed
Not a fan of clear glosses but this was pretty nice (: Didnt have that cheap feel that most glosses have. I had to pair it with a lip liner because I dont like the natural color of my lips.
Perfect clear gloss
ninas84 from undisclosed
Despite the pretty packaging, I wasn't expecting a huge difference between this and other glosses I own. I wasn't immediately blown away, but like the fourth time I tried it, something clicked(and I ended up throwing away 3 glosses I previously liked). It isn't sticky even when layered, and it can be layered for an Instagram glassy look that's smooth, line and patch free even up close. It feels comfortable. And most importantly for some, it wears perfectly over lip stick and lip liner. No bleeding. The only con is that it isn't long lasting. I don't necessarily mind reapplying and I'll likely buy another when mine runs out.
best gloss applicator ever
ashleyromae from undisclosed
This is the best gloss I've ever used. The applicator is flat but rounded at the top. It has a not so subtle coconut smell so if that's not your thing stay away. I however will be purchasing again once I run out.
nikif5 from undisclosed
I really like this lip gloss as a standard, clear gloss. It's definitely my new go to for a glassy look, and it's not too sticky either. I'd definitely recommend it!
sollouis from undisclosed
I'm in love with this product, I've been looking for a lipgloss that is not sticky and stay on for a long time and this is everything, I totally recommend this.
glossy and non-sticky
chabelyr from undisclosed
Glossy and not sticky. It is easy to throw on over any lip liner for that wet look. Plus smells really good.
mochambers97 from undisclosed
The product does its job and does it well. It's not too sticky and thick but it's also not too thin and slippery. Nothing to complain about! I received this product free from Influenster to review.
jaynishap from undisclosed
This gloss is perfectly wet looking without feeling sticky. It smells great and fresh. Since it is clear it is the perfect gloss to throw on over any lip liner or lipstick for that glossy look. I keep it in my purse so that because I can always use it no matter what lip color I've got on! Highly recommend!

Super glossy, not too sticky, and no weird scent. A little expensive for a clear gloss but otherwise wonderful! Love the high shine finish too
sarahh11d7 from undisclosed
Girl, sometimes you need that clear gloss to just add some juicy oomph to your own lips— or maybe you're switching up a matte lip to more glossy for a special occasion. I feel this gloss wears well and isn't too sticky in comparison to other glosses. I love the sleek design as well.

This is a nice sheer glittery gloss that looks great by itself or on top of a lipstick. It's like highlighter for your lips. It doesn't feel super sticky. The color is neutral so it looks good on all skin tones.
