This is a nice gloss not too pigmented, you can wear it over a lipstick or a lip paint. It is not sticky, it feels smooth on the lips. It lacks staying power. If you want to give your lips a break from the drying effects of lip paints and want something more than a balm, this is a good oprion. I use just andab in the center of my lips when I am wearing lipstick or a lip crayon.
