Prefer the old tube
Like many others who have used the prior lip gloss, I much prefer that over the new tube design. Mine leaks as well and since I bought it from a third party retailer of JI products I cannot return. Also it is more awkward to use the longer application wand, the shorter one was perfect.
Oh no! We’re sorry about the leaking gloss and our Personal Shoppers can arrange a replacement. Please feel free to contact them at 877-869-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am a lip gloss junkie so I have tried a lot of different glosses. This is by far the best gloss. It is all natural, smells and tastes wonderful, has a nice shine and lasts longer than most. I will absolutely be buying more colors :o)
hazelnut lip gloss, where did you go?
It is SO unfortunate that many of the new JI lines have such strong fragrance. The blush, the lip stuff... almost everything smells like a fake fruit. I go to Jane Iredale bc it's supposedly clean and free of all the extraneous nonsense and yet it seems that these days Jane Iredale is pandering to the desire of teenage girls. I want the Iredale of the past not the Bonne Bell lip gloss of the past. And I'm sorry that JI discontinued the greatest color I've every found in a lipgloss: Hazelnut.
Thank you for your honest review and we’re sorry you’re not happy with our recent changes. We understand if you’d like to stick with our original formula and although Hazelnut is no longer available, you can always stock up on other shades featured on our Last Hurrah page, http://shop.janeiredale.com/products/last-hurrah.htm. We’ve incorporated organic oils and fruit extracts into our new formula because they help protect the lips with antioxidants, Vitamin C and E. Along with these benefits, ingredients like Pomegranate and Blackberry Extract contribute to the product’s natural flavor.
Long time customer
I have used the Just
Gloss in the tube for years. When I went to get a new tube I was informed you stopped selling the Just Gloss. I tried one of your new colors, in the new packaging and I agree with a lot of the other reviews you need to bring back the tubes and the Just Gloss. Please, I will be returning the new color I just bought. I don't like the new container and I don't like the feel of the lip gloss. It goes on dry and sticky. The just gloss is smooth and glossy.
Great Lip Gloss
I love this stuff! I first bought Soft Peach, which I like to layer over Beach Plum. Beach Plum is really pretty, looks great all by itself. I think my favorite one right now is Nectar...really good for on the go because you do not need a mirror to apply it (a very subtle color). I love the taste, not that I should be eating my makeup. I also like that my hair does not get stuck in it like many glosses do (that thick sticky feeling). Great product :)
I use Snowberry gloss by itself and over JI new lipstick in Rikki and I absolutely LOVE IT!! It is my favorite gloss!! I love the spongy applicator, too. The tube works well for me and I do not find that it leaks. It stays on quite awhile, too.
Ok, so I've seen the good and the bad reviews. I'm a very recent, very new customer to the JI products, so I cannot comment on the former formula for the lip glosses. I can comment on the most recent: I just bought a wand of Raspberry, and I am most pleased. This is one of the best glosses I've ever had the pleasure of using. It stays put. It doesn't creep. It SEEMS to plump, because I have not seen my lips look this good in a LONG time. It stays between the lines. I don't have to use lip-liner to use it. It moisturizes. It does not bleed. It matches and enhances my skin tone. The scent is not annoying or fake. It is not waxy or gloppy. It shines where it's supposed to and not where it's not supposed to. It does not cling to the corners of my mouth. In all, I really like this product. I, for one, do not like 'minty' lip products, but that's not necessarily a bad thing -- many people do like them. I just happen to be happy with a product that makes lips look great without the minty thing going on. I don't mind the size of the product, but I don't have anything to compare to it. So far, I'm very happy I did spend the amount I did on this product -- even though I can barely afford it.
My favorite gloss!
I love this gloss! I've been using it for years and I'll continue to for as long as they make it. My current favorite is sugar plum - but I sure miss apricot fizz....
I can't detect any difference in the formula other than the scent. I preferred the old ginger scent but the berry is fine. Like everyone else, I miss the old packaging - it was genius! It could fit in the smallest purse or pocket and you could get every last bit out to truly get your money's worth. So, one star off for that but I will continue to wear/buy it no matter what.
I have been wearing this brand of makeup for 11 years! I love it. The new gloss is super fun! Red current is so lovely! I looks as though it would be bright red but it pretty sheer. I love it for this reason!
MY DAUGHTER AND IMHAVE USED CHERRY SPARKLE LIP GLOSS FOR YEARS. PLEASE BRING THAT COLOR BACK
Please bring back the former tube
I hope Jane Iredale will honor the comments of so many purchasers, and I'm adding my name to the list. Please bring back the little tube!!! The new one leaks and is harder to use. I am considering moving on.... don't make me!
We hear you and thank you for sharing your thoughts! You mention that your new Lip Gloss leaks and this shouldn't happen and we’d love to replace it. If you're interested please contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or email@example.com.
Love this, I bought crabapple and it's perfect. I'm blond, fair skinned, and wanted something with a nice color but wasn't in your face. I pair it with a red based lip liner and it's just right.
no staying power
I love the color. However, it does not stay on very long and I find myself reapplying it often just to keep the color on my lips. Crabapple is the color
We’re sorry you aren’t happy! You’re right, Lip Glosses are not our longest-wearing lip product. If you are looking for something with real staying power, we recommend the Lip Fixation, which has a stain on one end for long wear, and a gloss on the other for high shine. Our Personal Shopper will be happy to exchange your PureGloss and if you’re interested, please contact them at 877-869-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
change is not always a good thing
I miss the old formula and size of the pure gloss. Even though the old ones leaked (even when tightly closed), they were far superior to the new ones. The new formula is scented and has a strong sweet flavor--I will not buy them again. Also, the size of the new tube and wand are much too large. I am very disappointed. I also miss the old tourmaline color which went nicely on top of any and all other colors.
PureGloss Lip Gloss
I've been a Jane Iredale customer for many years, but my experience with this product is not favorable. The tubes leak, and my favorite color, Mulberry, is no longer available. The color that the Iredale phone rep suggested doesn't come close to Mulberry. And the berry scent of the new product is not appealing. I'm switching to a different cosmetic company for lip color.
We’re sorry you aren’t happy! If you’re interested in an exchange or return, we’d be happy to help you. We hope you’ll give us another chance!
1st timer with pure gloss
I purchased 5 and enjoy picking which one to wear everyday. The staying power is fantastic. Some have commented on the stickiness, which I prefer as compared to products that are less or not sticky at all and here is why: less sticky products allow your face to have lip color slash marks all over the cheek area when hairs wisp over the lips, NOT A GOOD LOOK for any age group. My hair brushes over the lips and the product doesn't follow the hair thank goodness!
The best gloss
I have fallen more in love with these new glosses. I didn't at first think I liked them as much as the old glosses. Boy was I was wrong! These are much more moisturizing and mild and smell oh so good! The overall formulation is just better and looks better on the lips. Also, more in the tube. I guess what I missed is the look of the old tube and some of the colors that are gone like mimosa. id like to have mimosa in this new formulation. I wear this everyday in soft peach, beach plum, or iced mocha. Thank you!
Omg! Love soft peach
I love the new glosses. My favorite is soft peach. it can go on top of any color and is opaque enough to wear on its on. I had loved the wild apple pure gloss and was so afraid of being without it. But i think soft peach does the job,i might even like it more. I still wish they would keep some of the old pure gloss tubes because a few of my favorites are discontinued. the old squeezy tube with the gold lid and formula was so unique from any other brand out there. They were easy to control and the formula was perfection,never being to sticky.
but I'm very happy with the new ones as well and want to collect more favorites. They are perfection in there own right. :)
We're glad you love the new formula! We may still have a few of your original favorites on our Last Hurrah page. Click the following link to stock up while they're still available: http://shop.janeiredale.com/products/last-hurrah.htm.
Love the color I chose and the scent is very nice. The texture is also nice and feels good on my lips. Very nourishing. However, it is a sticky mess. I leaks in my purse even with the cap screwed on tight. I could get past the sticky feeling on my lips but I can't deal with everything in my purse being sticky as well!
We’re glad you love the formula and are so sorry about the sticky situation! We also noticed this and the problem has been resolved. Our Personal Shoppers would like to send you a replacement, and if you’re interested, please contact them at 877-869-9420 or email@example.com.
Leaks - Faulty Design
Love Jane Iredale - counted and currently have 19 JI products that I am using. That said, however, the re-design of this product is terrible (have 5 PureGloss' right now). Leaks (even when capped tightly) & makes everything in my purse or make-up kit sticky. Will not be buying JI PureGloss again unless it's redesigned not to leak. Please bring back the old design!
Wow you must have a great collection of jane iredale products! We’re so sorry about your leaking PureGloss and it sounds like you received a tube that was overfilled. Don’t worry, this has been fixed, and we’d love to send you a replacement! To arrange a replacement, please feel free to contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I love the product itself, but have found that the tube seems to leak, even when the cap is screwed on tightly. So I don't like carrying it with me, for fear it will get all over the inside of my purse.
We're glad you love it! A leaky tube certainly doesn't meet our quality standards, and we'd love to send you a replacement so you can feel comfortable with it in your purse. To arrange a replacement, please contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or email@example.com.
Prefer Old Formula
I am with some of the others, I prefer the lightness and rich moisture of the old PureGloss formula. I have Snowberry of the new formula, which I like because it doesn't have alot of pigment, but the flecks of shiney material are prickly when you first put it on and rub your lips together to even it out. I don't like that and the old formula Tourmaline seems to add color to my lips even though it is almost colorless, but Snowberry seems to sap my lips natural color. I am wondering too, which color in the new formula does Tourmaline translate to? I hope a final decision is to keep both varieties of PureGloss!
If you enjoyed Tourmaline, we think you'll really like Pink Smoothie, which adds just a very slight touch of pink to your natural lip pigment!
I absolutely LOVE the new formulation of your Pure Gloss, it feels like silk gliding over my lips. I'm really surprised to read the other reviews because I found the old gloss to be a bit sticky and didn't love the mint taste or smell at all. I know the products are natural so what people are smelling/tasting is all natural fruit extracts and good things for them. Give it a chance people, it's AMAZING!!!!
Pure Gloss Sugar Plum
Love this gloss color! It looks so great alone or over my Pure Moist Renee. The perfect summer pink. A lovely contrast against sun-warmed skin. While I was content with the original flavoring, the new one is acceptable too. I also have and love the Iced Mocha. May try Cosmo in the fall.
Love the new gloss!!
I read some negative reviews, and was hesitant to try. What a mistake! I like the new one better than the old! It does have a sent to it, and I am VERY sent sensitive, but it’s a faint sweet smell that doesn’t last long, and I really enjoy it! I don’t have a single negative thing to say, I wouldn’t go back to the old! I have pink candy- light pink shimmer, wonderful with my fair complexion!
Old & New Color Comparison?
Is there a suggested new color that matches up with the old colors (ie Apricot, Mimosa, etc)? It's hard to "wing" it on the computer screen. Thanks.
Although there aren’t exact matches for some of our discontinued shades, we have a few suggestions for alternative shades we think you’ll love! We recommend trying Tangerine or Nectar for Apricot Fizz and for Mimosa, try Iced Mocha. If you’d like other suggestions, please contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I own several of the original PureGloss for Lips and now several of the PureGloss Lip Glosses, and the new formula is definitely better! It is more moisturizing and holds more product! Who wouldn't love that?
Love Love Love
Moisturizing,long lasting,pretty color.Love love love.Thank you!
I love this new formulation of the JI lip gloss. Feels great, lasts decently long and beautiful look. The Beach Plum is my new favorite, although I think it's oddly named. It's a coral-y, almost neutral pink, with no plum at all that I can see. Pink Smoothie and Mocha are my other 2 go-to colors and I love them even more in this creamy new formla.
Love this lip gloss. Love the new wand! It stays on and feels great! The RED is my fave!
I miss the old tube
I wanted to live with the new product and tube for a while before I commenting. The product seems very similar in terms of texture only a bit less sticky. I think I liked the old product better, it stayed on longer. What I truly dislike is the packaging. I loved the short wand, it was so much easier to control. This long wand is of course not impossible but I don't like it. Too bad really.
Lose the Fruity Fragrance
I, too, prefer costmetics without fragrance. The fruity smell of the new PureGloss is a turn-off for me. I agree with another reviewer who lauded the previous product's tingly, menthol type feel. It felt healing without being medicinal. The new applicator wand feels a bit too long and harder to control. The color and texture are still lovely; just lose the fruity fragrance, please.
Bring back the old formula
I am beyond bummed with the new formula. When I discovered the old PureGloss formula 3 years ago, I knew that my hunt for the perfect lip gloss had ended. I have used nothing else and it kept my lips moisturized and gorgeous in every situation. The new gloss smells like Lip Smackers. Every time I put it on I just think of cheap drugstore lip gloss. I loved the natural minty smell of the old one. Also, the texture feels like a fake thick oil on my lips and seems to work its way around my lip line. I am buying as many of the old ones as I can get my hands on to save up a stock. Please please bring back the old formula.
I love this formula better than the older one. I love the scent. (It reminds me of a lip gloss in a pot long long ago).I don't see how someone can say it is strong. It is such a nice berry scent that does disapear shortly after application It feels so nice, soft, moisturizing. I am going to order another one for back up.I have the Bellini, which is almost clear, and Beach Plum, kind of like Coral. Thanks.
I am a bit dissatisfied with the new lip glosses
I started using Jane Lip glosses after trying the mulberry and the black current lip glosses. I loved the smooth, silky and minty feel that they gave the lips. However, I am disappointed that Jane Iredale no longer carry the Mulberry and Black Current Lip glosses and that they ingredients are different. Aside from that, the new lip glosses are not smooth and silky, rather they are bit rough at first application and they are more expensive too. I may have to look elsewhere.
Please bring back the former Jane Lip glosses that customers were in love with such as myself and make the price more affordable too.
We're sorry you're dissatisfied. Mulberry and Black Current are available for a limited time on the Last Hurrah page on shop.janeiredale.com, so please feel free to stock up while supplies last! We're glad you gave the new formula a try and since you prefer a minty lip product, you may like our Just Kissed Lip Plumpers which glide on and gently plump the lips with ginger and peppermint. If you're interested in trying one, please contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or email@example.com to inquire about a sample!
I was excited to try the new gloss because I am a huge fan of the smaller version but was very disappointed in the taste change. I had to return because it was so strong of berries. I like berry flavored things but this gloss tasted so bad that I had to return because I was never going to be putting that on again. I had to stock up on the old version of this gloss. Please bring back the old formula.
I have been buying JI especially the pure gloss for over 5 years now. I tried the new pure gloss and although I like the feel and texture, I prefer the old formula. I have to say I really didn't like the berry smell. The new gloss is very moisturizing and creamy which is a plus.
Plump it up
I am a Jane customer for life. These glosses give amazing shine, stay on better than any other gloss I've ever tried and plump up your lips like crazy because of all the amazing ingredients. ...I think the smell is a natural berry that dissipates in a short time.
Great color, packaging is so-so
I spent quite a while looking at the samples available at my salon. I chose snow berry and candied rose. I absolutely love both colors. However, on my first application of the purchased product, the snow berry applicator tip was peeling. I opened the candied rose today to find no applicator attached at all... Just a plastic stick :/ will make the drive back for an exchange. Colors are stunning but hope the packaging issues are addressed soon.
We're glad you love your new Lip Gloss and are so sorry about the problems you are having! We understand your disappointment and have passed along your experience to our quality control team. If you have any trouble exchanging the Lip Gloss at your retail location, please feel free to contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for understanding!
Oh how I prefer thee old formula...
...let me count thy ways. I liked the tingly, minty, cooling, moisturizing feel of the old formula. When my lips felt dry or chapped, I looked forward to putting it on. The new formula has a sickening sweet berry scent/flavor, and it seems to just sit atop the lips, rather than penetrating and moisturizing them. I liked the pliable tube and short wand of the old formula. The new longer wand puts your hand inches further from your face, which makes for a less-precise, harder to manage application. The old pliable tube made it simple to squeeze every bit of gloss out. I don't care if my lip gloss tube is "sexy"...I would prefer it to be practical and easy to use. Finally, I do not care for the Beach Plum color that I ordered. It is lighter and more frosty than I expected. When a product is so beloved, I wish cosmetic companies would leave them be!

Miss the old gloss
I have been wearing puregloss for years. I was over the moon when i finally found a great natural lip gloss. What I loved about the Jane iredale puregloss was the selection of great bold colors that did not wipe off instantly. I seem to be in the minority that I actually liked the slight 'stickiness' so that I didn't have to constantly reapply. I just ran out of my favorite colors, clear gloss, sparkle cherry, and Cosmo. Much to my dismay, When i went to place my order today, i find out that the formula has changed to be less sticky and with a new berry flavor that I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be crazy about AND none of my favorite colors exist!! This is a huge disappointment that will force me to look elsewhere. I did find the old puregloss on a website called skin-beauty.com I will be stocking up on my favorites since I'm sure they will run out soon.
We’re sorry you were disappointed, and we’re happy to let you know that our old formula of PureGloss is still available while supplies last! Feel free to visit the following link to view the shades still available https://shop.janeiredale.com/products/last-hurrah/.
Love the new Lip Gloss
Just got the new lip gloss and it is so great! While I liked the older version, the applicator wand is so much better and the lip gloss stays on without being sticky! No more hair blowing in the wind and getting stuck in my lip gloss. The black cherry is awesome! While it may look dark, it goes on bright and enhances naked lips or is great over liner alone or line plus lipstick!
Just tried the new Puregloss Lip Gloss and although the texture is nice, not a Hugh difference from the old one in my opinion, I was very unhappy with the strong "berry" perfume smell. I have liked JI makeup, partly because most of the items do not have any fragrance which is a common concern for those of us with sensitive skin and allergies. Unfortunately the new Lip Gloss is one item I will not be buying.
I love the feel of this lip gloss. In my job I always need to look fresh. It is easy to apply without a mirror and the best part is it is NOT at all sticky/tacky feeling! I have dry lips and have always put Chapstick on under any lip products to make it go on smooth but that is not needed here. It is very conditioning on its own.
