It does have a fruity top note, but 90% of the smell is something medicinal and almost decayed. I've never smelled anything like it before, and it's certainly not something you'd expect in a top dollar product. I wouldn't plan on kissing anybody wearing this stuff!

You're right about that! I read reviews and the general population says fruity or grapefruit - I got it, and it smells woodsy or herbal to me - I had my friend smell it and she said it smelled like that bubble gum in a single wrapper (like double bubble) . . . It's humorous about how each person can smell the same thing and come away with a different answer! I suggest smelling it before you buy it - you'll either love it or hate it.

I think Golden Fusha would be lovely on dark skin. You could add a light pink lip tint under it to get the pink color you want. I love to use lip tints with Golden Gloss, I get compiments every time. Creats a "WOW" effect.

Praline doesn't look good on everyone. Maybe some people. I bought it cuz I read that comment somewhere, and I was SORRY I did. It is a weird warm brown and made my lips dirt brown with gold glitter. Yuck. I would say if a person has golden tanish olivish undertones to stay away from this one, unless you use a lipstick under it. One of the worst colors in this line in my opinion. Pink at least brings out your flushy cheeks, praline brings out the brown in my complexion, not pretty.

I have a different answer than the others who responded...
#2 Golden Praline is a warm, neutral pink that looks good on everyone. It is always out for display at the YSL counters in major department stores & featured often at Sephora. NOTE: It is the color featured above. You can't go wrong with this one & I often buy this color as gifts since it is a "universal color" so my friends can get addicted too! You will LOVE it!

Unless you like very very bright hot pink, stay away from Golden Berry. I might suggest the Garnet one for you, if you like more burgundy pink, try the Golden Plum.

This is quite sheer, but there are some lovely pink shades that might work for you. I would guess that Golden Pink or Golden Garnet might be what you are looking for. They should look quite pretty with your skin tone.

I am not a lipstick person so maybe I am biased. I do love to play up my lips so I wear gloss. Not just any gloss though. They have to have the right feel, color, and staying power. This gloss is my favorite. It slowing sinks in and your lips stay hydrated. With lipstick you have to reapply and they dry my lips out. This gloss is a real treat.

These glosses are pretty true to color (swatches) if you want a more delicate, innocent look go with the Golden Peony. So you have a fair complection, with your dark hair you could pull off wearing the Golden Pink. I think it would be a nice contrast and would give you a little more "vavoom" than the Golden Peony. Hope this helps.

Let me start by saying I am 55 so I understand. this is so pretty and very light! It doesn't run or smear. I like to use it alone or over a pretty pencil it has a pink nude effect so you can use it over a couple of different colors. It has essential oils also so it makes your lips nice and soft. Try you know if you don't like it Sephora will always help you get it right. There's a pretty golden lavender color too.

This gloss for the most part does not bleed or feather but you will need to reapply after a cocktail and dinner. It is not sticky like some colorstay versions. It is a very flattering shade no matter what skin color and I prefer its application brush rather than an applicator sponge tip.

I recently bought the Golden Peach and the picture online does not do it justice! It is a very pretty light peach with lots of shimmer and I myself am fair, and have blonde hair and blue eyes. I love peach and apricot lip colors but it is hard to find ones that show up or are true peach or apricot colored but this gloss is. As for the expense I splurge b/c I don't use it often so it lasts a long time even though it does not take much to coat your lips. I hope this helps!

I think #50 Golden Peach would be a good peachy-pink color.

As for whether this lipgloss is worth it- for me, the answer was a resounding yes. The golden flakes provide a lovely but sophisticated sparkle, without feeling at all gritty on the lips. If I didn't know it had glitter, I wouldn't be able to tell. The gloss is super moisturizing and non-sticky, and it smells heavenly (like mangos). Some people find the smell unpleasant, but for me it was actually the factor that tipped me over into buying two of these glosses. It smells amazing to me.

Also, this is a fairly long lasting gloss, about 3-4 for me.
