I purchased the new lip gloss belle du soir. The smell I can tolerate. It really doesn’t have a strong scent. But the tackiness may be a problem for me. I need to wear it several times before making a final judgement.

I have read several reviews where the nastiness of the smell depends on the shade. If scented lip products bother you, then you may want to sniff before purchasing.

I read all the terrible reviews on Sephora the other day. I can handle a bit of tackiness, but not smells & tastes.
The tackiness isn't bad. The smell and taste are horrific. It's really too bad because I like the color and it looks great on.

It's especially weird as most consumers prefer less or no perfume. I understand that companies want to have a "signature scent" for their products, but not if it turns off the customers.

I really like the darker of the two face palettes from the Glowgasm collection. With a light hand, I think the colors could work on my light skin. The lighter palette is pretty but since I have so many CT products, I think I could dupe those colors.

So, I am all about the darker Lovegasm...but then Cover FX just released these:

If you’re interested in either of the glowgasm palettes, I highly recommend checking them out in person or waiting for more reviews. My first impression of the lighter palette is that it’s just too light. For reference, I’m an NC20, Armani #4 . The bronzer is so hard pressed that it takes many, many layers to build up any color on the face. The highlighter (upper left) is almost identical to the film star bronze and glow. The two colors on the right give a really nice duochrome color when layered together on the face but, again, it’s all glow and little pigment. By the time you build it up enough to get any payoff it’s so much glow that it emphasizes texture.

I’m trying the darker palette tomorrow. Since those colors are darker and deeper, I’m hopeful there will be more color payoff.
