One of my favorite MAC products is their Cremesheen Glasses. While I do like Lipglasses, they are often too glittery on me and settle into my lip lines. Actually my first "high end" makeup purchase was Nymphette Lipglass when I was a freshman in high school. I still have it too!
I like the Cremesheens because they aren't sticky like Lipglasses, they feel soft and moisturizing on my lips, and they have more options that aren't glitter bombs. What I don't like is the price for the amount of product you get. Its $18.50 for 0.09 oz. while Lipglasses are $14.50 for 0.17 oz. That is four bucks less for almost twice as much gloss. These are also permanent and available, so no hunting on eBay to cure a lemming!
Partial to Pink is a peachy-pink nude with a subtle shimmer.
Loud & Lovely is cool toned bright magenta pink creme.

The following is a picture of my bare lips to give you something to compare to.

My other favorite lipglosses are Revlon's Super Lustrous glosses. The texture reminds me of the Cremesheens, but a bit thicker. They retail for $6.99 for 0.2 oz which is over twice the amount of gloss for almost a third of the price. Also, Revlon frequently goes on sale and you can also use coupons.
The point of this is that I have a Super Lustrous gloss that I thought may be a dupe for Loud & Lovely. Its called Pink Pop.

- Flattering shades
- Non-sticky formula
- NOT limited edition!
- A big price for not that much gloss
- Some shades may be easily dupe-able
- May no be as long lasting as more sticky glosses
