I love these like a fat kid loves CAKE

I wish these glosses added a bit more color to my lips than they do. However, what they lack in color, they make up for in a delicious smell, a wonderfully moisturizing product, and a set of lip glosses that are both glycerin AND paraben free. Overall I would recommend these to people who enjoy keeping their lips looking natural, but shiny, instead of trying to alter the natural shade.
Not sticky.
Fantastic smell.
Moisturizes well.
Glycerin & Paraben free.
Doesn't add actual color.
More expensive than average glosses.

extremely useful review
When I got my box of Winter Wonderlips, by Cake, and immediately tore into the cute cardboard package. Nestled inside, in a protective plastic backing to make sure they all stay perfectly separated, were three different tubes of CAKE lip gloss, in Vanilla Frost (the lightest pinkish tube), Pink Icicle (the medium pink-lemonade colored one), and Gold Glimmer (the light chocolate colored tube). While all three are different in the tube, once on your lips it's nearly impossible to differentiate between the three colors.

I took a photo of my lips without anything on them, for comparison shots.

The Vanilla Frost reminds me of a pink pearl. It's light pink, almost off-white, with a nice shimmer that glimmers a white-ish in the light. As you can see, it doesn't add much color at all to my lips, just a nice gloss and the glitter.

The Pink Icicle is the shimmery-est of the bunch, and is a shade of pink that reminds me of strawberry lemonade. When this one is on your lips, it's a bit glittery than the other two, but there is no difference in shade.

Gold Glimmer is actually more of a light brown color in the tube, but on your lips looks absolutely no different than the other two tubes. This one is about as glittery as Vanilla Frost, but doesn't add any brown hues at all to your lips.

The three glosses all have identical textures, and all are thick, so you'll have to use the applicator and swipe back and forth across your lips a few times to get equal application, and then push your lips together to make sure everything is nicely covered. Because they're thick, they do last longer than simple oil based lip glosses, however they don't have the staying power of many different lipsticks. I get about 30 minutes out of them before the color has noticeably faded and I want to re-apply (but I also rub my lips together often, which helps to absorb faster). However, they are nice and moisturizing, and even after they've started to dissolve, they don't leave a grainy residue.

The three glosses to me all smell exactly like white frosting. Even just putting them on makes me want to eat something sweet, because the smell is nearly perfect to that of birthday cake. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, if you don't want to chap your lips from all the licking), they don't taste how they smell. There's no taste at all to them, other than a very slight waxy residue if you lick your lips after immediately applying the gloss.

Size-wise, all three tubes are exactly the same size of nearly every lip-gloss I've ever encountered that comes in this type of container. They're in a hard plastic bottom, with a metal-coated silver plastic screw on top. Inside is a q-tip type felt applicator. They're easy to toss in a purse or bag without worrying that they'll leak. I even keep one in my car, and it hasn't been affected by the heat (although it may get a little thinner when it's warm, but it goes right back to it's natural consistency as soon as it cools off).

I do want to be perfectly clear that, although these glosses do add some shimmer and definition to your lips, the colors in the tubes are deceiving. There is absolutely no difference on your lips than off, and even when I wipe my lips off with a piece of tissue, there is no color on the tissue. Just the faint residue of the sparkles. This is the only part of this product that disappoints me, since what I was hoping for was a variety of glosses that would change the COLOR of my lips, and not just add simmer. I can get the same type of shimmer I receive from other products that I already owned. They may not smell as nice, but they would have done the exact same thing and saved me $25.
