I am a lipstick person. I occasionally buy lip gloss because I am captivated by the pretty colors, and Rouge Bunny Rouge Gleaming Temptations Lip Gloss in Coy ($31) was a total lure. I could not resist a product described as "Warm sheer strawberry, glistening with silver, gold, and fuchsia pearls. Could you?

I was unable to capture the silver and fuchsia, but you should be able to see the warm strawberry infused with gold.

I was moderately disappointed that Coy managed to mute my rosy-mauve lip pigment. I was hoping the fuchsia particles would play on the blue in my lips and make this a face brightening color, but instead of adding a splash of color, it blends into my skin tone. Not enough contrast for it to be a winner for me, though I might end up using it on top of lipsticks. Nevertheless, Coy is a sweet and fresh color for the warmer months. It is not too sticky, and the color and shine last about an hour.
Bottom line: If you like lip gloss, this is a very pretty color that feels incredible on the lips.
