8. Reaction: You can usually find these on sale for for about $3.50 (if you get the right coupon in the mail from Bath and Body Works. If you don’t get coupons, make sure to provide your e-mail address on the Bath and Body Works site, or provide your e-mail and telephone number when you check out at a BBW store). The tube is a pretty good size, and it doesn’t take a lot to give your lips an nice coat. The scent is usually right on point with whatever the name of the lipgloss is. I like “Whipped Vanilla”–smells like frosting! I find that the range of colors is quite satisfying, too.
There are some drawbacks. First, I can’t pronounce most of the stuff in this product! Also, I find this product to be a bit thick, which means that I can look a little gooey on your lips. You have to be very careful to smooth out any places where the gloss “glopped up” on your lips. It’s also a little sticky–not a good thing for you ladies with long hair because your hair WILL get stuck to it (no bueno). This product is not super shiny–this may be a plus or a minus depending on how shiny you like your lips. Plus, once it wears off, my lips feel dry–not nourished. I have to rush to put something on my lips so they won’t get rough.
I applied it to my lips this morning, and by 11am or so, my lips were feeling a little dry (even underneath the layer of Liplicious that I reapplied). In the past, I have also experienced bad lip peeling after wearing Liplicious products for a few days in a row.

So, the final analysis: if you want to grab something that is colorful, but not too shiny AND you only need to wear it for a few hours, go for Liplicious. However, this is NOT my “go to” lip gloss–that is, not something that I would always have in my purse.
