This stuff is heaven in a tube. I was a little girl once, I was all about the lip gloss- the shiner the better. As I've grown and matured, I've asked more of my lip glosses. Yes shine, easy application, staying power, not sticky, and flattering colours. I am dark (according to influenster) with yellow undertones and it's really hard for me to find the right colours for myself. I received this as a gift with purchase, and I'm so glad I did. I would not myself have gone out and bought this (because as much as I love the brand there are lesser expensive lip glosses), but I would have really missed out on something special. The colour is The Lovers and it looks like a bubblegum pink. It goes on pretty neutral, and eels to be JUST the right amount of pink, I genuinely think this colour would be good on every skin tone. It's lightweight, and it applies with a brush thing, not a squeeze tube, so you can take out as much or as little as you want and have little regrets. It's not tacky on the lips, is SUPER moisturizing, and lightweight. I completely forget when I'm wearing this, I will go about my day and then remember 3, 4, even 6 hours later that I had on lip gloss, and I should reapply and when I look in a mirror it's still shiny (the same amount of shine that I applied in the first place) and its just so comfortable. I would honestly recommend everyone try this at least once in your life, it'll change the way you look at lip gloss as an adult- and you might even get into it again like me. This is hands down my favourite lip gloss!
