I tried Almay Goddess Gloss (Fairy)
I thought it was:
- Fun Glittery/Sparkly
- Didn't dry my lips out
- Metallic shine
- Easy application
- Goes on smooth
- On trend
- Don't think this would work as an everyday look
- Couldn't see much of a color, not very visible
The gloss wears off but the glitter stays and it is sticky but most lip glosses typically are
Overall I love the glitter in this. It gives me the 90s vibes. Gives my lips a nice shine. But it wouldn't be something I would wear frequently, maybe when I was younger I would of. I like this lip gloss. I do feel it is aimed more towards the younger crowd. In the future if there is more color options added I would strongly consider purchasing this again.
(I couldn't get a picture that showed the glitter but in person it definitely has a lot of glitter/sparkle to it.)
I received this gloss in the shade Rainbow. It claims to use oils that make it moisturizing, so I was excited going into this thinking it would have a slick, enjoyable consistency akin to a lip oil. However, instead it has a very stiff and sticky feeling. It's not a gloppy stickiness, so at least there's that. It's not the worst consistency, just sort of a let down, especially knowing how many good feeling glosses there are in the price range. At the very least, it doesn't really sink into lines too bad.
I could likely learn to see past that..... if I recieved it in a shade that was flattering on me. I can absolutely look past a less-than-ideal feeling on the lips if I love the color enough. This is more personal preference of course, but I simply just have a hard time giving a product I don't like the feeling of and don't like the color of more chances. All my testing of this gloss was done in my own home because I didn't feel comfortable going out in it. I mean, this shade would probably look good on some people, but I just find purple with fuschia shift to be a REALLY dated color choice. I feel like this color is a dud in the bunch, honestly.
I might buy another tube to try it in a different color, because I really want to like this gloss, and the other colors appeal to me way more than what I received. And, I was given a coupon with it. Can't say I'd buy it again without one though.
In short, if you get the right color, you'd likely be able to enjoy this gloss. But the consistency is very average, so I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it.

DO NOT BUY!!! I'll start by saying this lip gloss looks really pretty on but it's not worth buying. I made an account just to comment on this because not many other comments were mentioning it. I do not wear makeup/lipgloss/lipstick and only use the same chapstick I've been using for two years. Wore this for Halloween and afterwards have had extremely dry lips (unusual for me), sore spots around the corners of my lips (very unusual for me), and discomfort on my mouth in general (very unusual for me). This lipgloss is the only thing that could have caused this

I use it by itself or over a darker color for a glossy look

almay needs to rebrand themselves. this lipgloss is SO GOOD. but i'm never recommending it, talking about it, or reapplying it in public.

Wear alone or over lipstick.

I use this alone & over other lipsticks. It stays fresh-looking & makes my lips look younger & healthy.

So I have four of the shades, and while they don't necessarily stick your lips together while you're wearing it, it's a little tricky to take off without a proper makeup wipe or remover. Sometimes I need to just wipe on a napkin, but then I'm left with none of the color and all of the glitter, which definitely isn't the goal. But I will say I've loved them for days I'm feeling a bit more fun and adventurous, not every brand has lavender duo-chrome, and especially not for a reasonable price, so I would repurchase these in the future.

I was apprehensive on trying this floor but it did not disappoint. The price is amazing and the gloss quality is high.

The head is small, but when it does go on it looks fabulous. It's not too bright or too dull.

This is the only light colored lip gloss I can find that is not transparent when you put it on! All the other light pinks look like you may as well be wearing nothing!

Like many of us, I've had a love / hate relationship with lip gloss. It's an ongoing cycle of seeing it, liking it, of buying it, trying it, getting annoyed by how it feels, and swearing off lip gloss forever... until I get "inspired" again. On my latest quest, I looked more carefully than other times, and had a good feeling about this product. Sure enough, I tried it, and it doesn't feel too noticeable. The cycle has been broken and no more disappointing lip glosses will get added to my collection from this point onward! I have a warm tan skin tone, and the "magic" shade goes well over my favorite red-orange lip stain.

I absolutely love this gloss!

Goes on great and last for a long time

I wanted a lip gloss I could use for e dry day. This was an awful color in me. I am blonde and very fair skin. Also I found it to be sticky.

By itself or accent to other lip products. Tone up or down, good summer color.
Adrienne from SLC, UT
This was too much glittery and the color doesn't go on evenly. I believe it would be good for a tween or teen.
Vanth from Illinois
I love it!! Sad part is i guess it would look batter if it was applied over other color of lipstick
Bilpi from Newport News
I like the way it feels on my lips and how it looks it's shiny and glittery and is has pretty holo colors
LaVerna from Mariposa

The best thing about this gloss it DOESN'T contain Tocopheryl Acetate. I am very allergic to this ingredient. I was excited to try this gloss because of the color selections & glitter . They are great as a stand alone gloss or you can mix the dark colors with the lighter to give a different color affect. I have used over lipstick which is also nice as well. I didn't experience any taste to the gloss. The scents of the gloss is a light vanilla.
G from San Diego
It's not a bad gloss considering the price but the bottle (at least mine) wasn't filled all the way
Cherie from Greer SC
Feel's so good.
TaliaRose from Lafayette, La.
I got halo and angelic for myself, and fairy and ethereal for my daughter. The colors are beautiful! The best thing is that these glosses aren't sticky! They go on smooth and actually moisturize. They don't dry out on my lips or clump up like sticky glosses do. But the colors are what drew me in and I'm glad they did. I like wearing them alone or over a nude or very light pink lipstick. My daughter loves the ethereal color and fairy looks good on her too.

Love this new color line. Looks great with my complexion. Wish it would last longer
