Most Helpful Positive Review Can be compared to Fenty Gloss Bomb
I received this to review in my first Vox Box, and was pleasantly surprised as long time lover of the Maybelline brand! This gloss made my lips feel so smooth and hydrated. I took off a star because the smell is a little too strong for my taste, but it actually tastes sweet too - if you like that!! If you like coconut and/or vanilla, you'll love it! I have been a user of the Fenty Beauty gloss bombs, and can say, this reminds me of the feeling I felt when I first tried them When you think of the buttery slide. This however, is a little sticky though! Lifter Gloss is smooth creamy and gives a slight tingle to the lips (no burning). If you are looking for a good drug store dupe to Fenty, give the Lifter Gloss a try. They come in different colors with one that matches the Fenty Fussy. Ice doesn't have the white cast like Fenty, Diamond Bomb, but the plumping smooth feel is definitely there, and wears well alone, or over other lip products too ~minus that slight sticky feeling. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Most Helpful Critical Review I'm not much for gloss, but
I'm not a lip gloss person. I'm over 50, but I liked it better when I was say, 35 and under. I like the fact that it's clear and not sparkly. I LOVE the light vanilla caramel flavor and scent. That absolutely has me using it around the house a lot when I don't have to worry about it making my curly hair get stuck in my lip products only to drag it all across my face (trust me, that's terrible) 😕 Or have it and my color bleed into my fine lines around my lips. Yeah, that's starting to be a concern. So, a con is that it doesn't last long. On the other hand, I have dry lips and not much works for them anyway. If I'd have rated this 15 years ago, I'd have given it 5 stars. Now, it's more of a 3, so I'm splitting the difference and going with 4 simply because it is an age thing. Younger women and girls will love this. Give it as gifts. I'll use this up, but I'm not sure I'd buy more. Younger me would have bought 4-5. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

I don't do reviews but I have to review this gloss! I normally hate glosses but this one is so amazing!! I'm in love the formula is so smooth and hydrating, I normally have really chapped lips but after using this gloss for about a week my lips are so soft and plump even without wearing it! It's not sticky or runny like a lot of drugstore glosses. My absolute favorite it changed my mind about lipgloss I'm going to be purchasing all of them and I hope Maybelline will keep making them!

not sticky, great pigment, and plumps the lips subtly without the tingling effect. even went back and bought another color
I would buy again

Typical pigmented lip gloss
Messagetothebird from Merced
The packaging is what caught my eye. As a glossy girl, I had to try! Picked it up in the shade Stone, decided on just one to give it a try before going all out and I'm already planning on picking up more in different shades. Application, scent, and overall feel is very much like the Fenty gloss in Glow for a 1/3 of the price. My only thing is that this is not as hydrating. Everything else is on point with this gloss!

Amazing nude lip gloss ! Not to sticky
Kerri D from Jacksonville
Bought this product on a whim looking for a new lipgloss. It smells good and stays on well throughout the day. Love the color!
Ultalover from Kentucky
Super surprised at how great this is. Love the color and not sticky.
Lovely color. Very effective formula.
Carebear from Glen Allen, Va.
Beautiful color. Does what it is supposed to do. I was told at the checkout counter that her friend bought it and says it is great. She said her friend said it took all the lines off her lips. I was even more curious and intrigued. I love it. It is great.
better than other higher end brands
Lisa from Denver
this reminds me so much of Fenty gloss but it's way more affordable at half the price.
Joanne_c from San Jose, Ca
Used up the fenty lip gloss and wanted to try a more affordable option and I'm so glad I did!! I love this lip gloss so much more! It's super hydrating and doesn't give me that weird white film I get on my lips. It's also really affordable!
Amazing gloss left a bag taste
Allison from Valrico FL
I purchased the colour Reef. It is a beautiful sheer, cool toned pink with no shimmer or glitter.
The texture is lovely and the formula is absolutely super hydrating and smooth. For hours after it seemed to wear off my lips stiff were soft and plump looking.
My only issue is the scent/taste. It is foul... sickly sweet... coconut kind of... it tastes and feels off to me and the scent lingers so I could smell it as I talked and took sips of a drink etc.
Great Shine, Amazing Feel
MecaMe from Texas
Love this gloss. It isn't super glossy that it makes my lips look fake like and greasy. I got Topaz and the color is perfect. I will say it is very similar to the Fenty Glow. On the texture it is very smooth and stays on lips for a long period of time. Not super thick but has some weight on it. Will definitely be buying a few more.
Maybelline is coming for high end cosmetics necks!
Bleu from Georgia
I will never spend $20 on a tube of gloss again as long as this product stays in production. This gloss, by far, supersedes most high end brands. You can't go wrong with any color (I bought them all), I love how each one complements my skin tone. I can't even pick a favorite.
beautiful and moisturizing
Prayogi from philadelphia
this gloss is the perfect formula. It is beautifully shiny without being sticky at all. I got the shade petal which does have some flecks of gold glitter. It's not really noticable though until the gloss is faded and the glitter is left of the lips. once it is faded, my lips are still moisturized, which is what I love about this
A product that works for all skin tones
Melissa from Cameron, MO
This product is great! The colors are natural-looking, they work for all skin tones but fairly priced. The plumping solution isn't too overpowering, which is what I like most
skm from tx
it is sooooo amazing! it makes my lips look fuller and just so good in general. i got the shade stone and it looked so good on my lips. it felt nice too, it wasn't too sticky just a little. and my lips were soooo hydrated after i wore it and it had came off. (this was the only thing i had on my lips, no lipstick or primer or anything) it's a yes from me, i love this product!
Loving this gloss
Missy13 from Bay Area, CA
I purchased a couple of shades after getting a promotional newsletter from Maybelline. They promised these glosses would smooth over lip lines which are the bane of my existence so I gave into the hype. I can assure you that this formula delivers on its promises. It does an amazing job of smoothing out and beautifying the lips. It's deeply hydrating and not sticky like a dimethicone-based gloss. I did a comparison with a clear Kylie Cosmetics gloss, and the Maybelline Gloss is soooo much better. The formula is thinner and lighter than your usual gloss or lip balm, which leads me to my only complaint - the doe foot applicator is too big for the formula's thinner texture, if you don't scrape off the excess product from the doe foot before applying you end up glopping too much on your lips. I ended up looking like a clown with gloss smeared all over my mouth the first few times. A smaller doe foot would be a much better match for this type of formula. It's ironic to see that they're promoting the bigger doe foot as a feature. They probably designed it that way so you use up the product faster and buy more. I got three shades and they're all highly recommended - Topaz (the og gloss Bomb dupe), Reef (a sheer pinky nude with no sparkles) and Opal (extremely sheer light pink with multicolor sparkles) that last one is an exclusive shade at the 3-letter pharmacy chain.
Not a fan of these
Jessybeauty from Arlington, VA
I heard these were a dupe for the Fenty gloss bombs and I strongly disagree. First of all, I don't like the smell, it's off-putting. I also don't like the packaging, it's bulky and takes up too much space in my makeup bag. I also don't like how these tend to leave a white film on my lips which is a huge pet peeve of mine. I don't think these are worth buying and they're also kinda expensive for a drugstore lipgloss. I wish I could return these. I'll probably just use these up quickly but I won't be repurchasing and I don't recommend these.
New favorite gloss
Leia from USA
My new favorite gloss! So shiny and pretty, not sticky at all and super affordable
I never write reviews but...
Roni from New York
I saw some reviews saying this is a dupe for the Fenty Gloss and I 10/10 would recommend this as a dupe. It smells really nice, kind of like chocolate. The color is a beautiful nude and looks A M A Z I N G over a nude lipstick and dark nude lip liner. It's also very heavy and a little goes along way!
I want them all!
Thuperduper from Texas
During my lunch break, I bought the colors Petal and Stone and tried them both on when I got back to work. I loved both colors but Petal went better with my work top so I kept that one on. 6 hours later when my work day was over, the glossiness was gone but there was still an even layer of beautiful color on my lips and my lips were SO soft. After work, I went back to the store and bought Reef and Silk. Although these colors are pretty similar, I figured I could keep the similar ones in my purse and at work so that I always have one of these on hand. I have never been this excited about a lip product and I can't see myself using any other lip product for a long time! Each color that I tried feel the exact same on my lips and they're slightly sticker than if I had vaseline or aquafor on my lips.
Becky123 from Louisiana
I pray they never discontinue these. I love these so much. Perfect sparkle and they feel so smooth, not sticky. They stay on pretty well before needing to reapply but I look forward to reapplying these. It's got Hyaluronic acid as well! My lips look really nice because it seems to smooth my lines in my lips. Please Maybelline, NEVER stop making these!
Beautiful Gloss 😍
Sammarie from Los Angeles
I only bought 2 to try them and take advantage of the sale going but OMG you guys the formula is perfect not sticky at all super comfortable and nice ingredients, Yes not long lasting but I love reapplying cause they are just beautiful So I'm here adding 2 more colors 😍😍😊😊
Brit from Nashville, TN
