not sticky

if is soft and smooth on your lips and it is not sticky - it’s just perfect

- Tartecosmetics User

soo pretty and i like the way it seals your lips with a nice gel giving it a nice plastic look, it is sticky but all gloss is usually sticky it has a lovely smell and looks really good over fusia pink lipstick with the blue tint making it look more iridescent

A great kit

Great kit to try several different colors without having to buy individual full size glosses. A good mix of sheer subtle colors and deeper, brighter bold colors. A good mix! Would also make a great gift for any age. If you don't care for one or two of the colors they would be great stocking stuffers! These glosses aren't too sticky and have good staying power. They leave your lips pretty hydrated. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try new colors.

So beautiful! Honestly I bought this mostly because of the cute turtle on top, but it turned out to be such a good buy. It’s a sheer, peachy pink with fine golden shimmer sort of reminiscent of the Orgasm line. The consistency is somewhat thick but not sticky or tacky - it feels really good on the lips and lasts forever. Looks great on its own to enhance the shape and color of your natural lips, or over any other lip color. I wear it on top of a nude longwear lipstick and it lasts just about all day with no need for touch-ups. To be fair, I can’t speak to its lasting power if one were to eat greasy food or sandwiches. ;)

love! Very pretty color!

I love this! I added a photo as you can see Room service is a nice light natural mauvish plum.. I got it as a sample and loved so I ordered full size and a few other colors I will review. I thought it would be too purple for me, but it really just enhances your natural lip color. I’m middle aged back in college and not a lot of time for make-up (hence the shot of only my lips) but I had to share. I don’t like lip stick as it sits in creases and makes my lips look wrinkly and this makes them look plump. This has more pigment than some glosses you can almost line and fill with it. It’s slightly tacky, but not super sticky so it seems to last, not all day, but if you’re a gloss girl you know the drill. The smell doesn’t give me a headache like most. Its slightly sweet very pleasant but not like some with cheap vanilla scent. I got this as a sample and I’m more of a light pink gloss girl and tend to hoard it, But these colors are all so gorgeous I’m stepping outside my box and getting two other shades « less

Not a Winner for Me

I somehow acquired six or seven of these, and these, at least to me, aren’t like a traditional gloss, per se. Honestly, the only reason why I am using them is because they were gifted to me. Would I repurchase any of them on my own? No. The main reason is because when I wear a gloss, I wear it in hopes to add hydration to my lips and to make them look, well, glossy. In all fairness, I prefer a matte lip, but every now and then, my lips do feel a little dehydrated and that’s when I’ll reach for a gloss. It’s also convenient for touch-ups when you’re on the go. But when I wear these, I feel like I’m adding another liquid lip color on top instead of a gloss. With that being said, these remind me of the bareminerals gen nude matte liquid lipsticks in texture if you are familiar with them. They are a bit thicker in consistency, slightly tacky, don’t glide on easily, and do not add much glossiness to the lips when worn. Resultantly, I don’t trust myself to apply this without a mirror due to the pigmentation and consistency. But for that same reason, it doesn’t travel outside the lip line but your hair will get stuck to it if you happen to get caught in the wind. They are pigmented and can be worn alone and they do indeed have superb color pay off. I constantly sip on coffee throughout the day at work, and these glosses last through that. But I noticed that after a while, my lips do feel a bit drier, so I wouldn’t consider these to be hydrating at the least, which is quite ironic considering they have H20 in the name. If you seek glossiness in your lip glosses, I wouldn’t recommend these. I don’t notice any particular scent to these as well if that’s something that you are wary of. As a lip gloss, these are a no-go for me. Less

What a great gloss! Super pigmented and shin, hydrating, not too sticky and decent staying power for a gloss. The bright colours are beautifully bright and have more pigment than many other glosses do - Maui is a solid and opaque colour as opposed to a translucent wash of colour - it also feels nice to wear! Love it! This is the best product I snagged during the sale!
