The two lipglosses I got were O and Gash, both gorgeous reds. And I already have the Ultraglide in Heat, so I thought... let's do a comparison of reds! I tried on all three and snapped photos.

So, here's a swatch sample on the back of my hand:
|L to R: O, Gash, and Heat|
So, without further ado, here we go. First up is Heat, the one I already owned. From Urban Decay's website:
Next up is O:
Ultraglide is billed as a cross between a lipgloss and a lipstick, and I think O definitely brings some truth to that assertion. The creme sheen and the coverage definitely make it lipstick-y, but the texture and glide make it gloss-y.
Last is Gash, and this color is near and dear to me because it's my favorite (special occasion) red in its lipstick form. (See my post from junior prom.) Gash is billed as:
On me, it's less like my favorite lipstick, but probably great as an every day version (especially if worn over Gash lipliner pencil.):
What am I going to do with three red lipglosses? I don't even know. Lipgloss never lasts as long as lipstick, but it's so cute! And if you LOVE looking dramatic in red, lipgloss is a perfect way to tone down the drama a little bit but still keep that attention-getting factor.
PS - I applied the glosses straight from the tube - they have this soft, silicone applicator tip, so it's really nice going on. If I wanted to be very neatnik and precise about it though, I would use a lip brush.
