OVERALL THOUGHTS
LOL at my swatches down below. Womp. They are sheer glosses intended to add shine to your lips or on top of lipsticks so if you can decipher which is which without caption, be my guest haha. But in photograph you can't really tell the very subtle differences between each shade, it was hard to capture that but it really is difficult to capture sheer anything so...

I personally only own one clear gloss for the same intended purposes (to add shine to lipsticks) and these are good as a cheap alternative.They were fairly sticky but not to where you smack your lips together and it gets stuck - twas moisturizing, thickness, and as always the stickier it is - the longer lasting they are. The wand is a doe foot which I'm not a fan of because lipstick tends to leave a stain on it. The smell is of watermelon or strawberry, not too appealing - very drugstore smelling gloss (if you know what I mean!). I do like the shimmers it has, it gives a nice subtle glitter to the lips that isn't overpowering.

RECOMMENDATIONS
I'd recommend Rasp-Berry for those who want added red sheen to a matte lipstick or perhaps who wants a sheer red tint to their lips, the rest - I'd pick either one because they're all clear w/ very little variation. It's good to have a few selections in your collection in case you want to add shine to your lips without added color.

  1. Not too excited about these lip glosses but for the price they are good for a nice gloss finish on top of lipsticks. Thanks for the posts!

  2. These are not impressive at all in my opinion. Still trying to get my hands on those Mega Last lippies. :-)

  4. i am SOO royally disappointed in WnW - They are discontinuing my favorite megaslicks color "sheerly cocoa"; i recently dyed my light brown hair a vibrant medium chocolate brown & had to change my makeup colors; and "sheerly cocoa" looks wonderful. Why doesn't WnW d/c the color "sinless" instead?! None of these new colors look like a replacement, they are way too sheer like Vaseline. :(
