No gummy formula: this is a smooth high shine gloss. Like all glosses, not much staying power. Be forewarned birthday suit is exactly that: your birthday suit, not lip-lightening at all. The tube looks like it will have a light tint but it really just comes out as clear. The tiny, tiny "shimmer" doesn't show up as shimmer to the naked eye at all but just gives more glowiness. Has natural taste and feel, not stinky chemically. It reminded me of the smell of mountains and natural springs and plants. I believe the actual smells you are smelling is the argan oil and echinacea: earthy herbal. Not much of a taste at all in fact, so that's good. A good product if this is what you are looking for. I'm not sure I will enjoy it enough to say I got my $8 worth.
Standard Lip Gloss
This lip gloss is okay. It doesn't stay on for very long is kind of sticky after you put it on. Definitely giving the free tube I received to my niece.
Lovely lip balm and gloss
This is a lip balm that doubles as a gloss, basically a slight nude, little our no color change on the lip for this redhead. Gloss type finish but not sticky. Nourishing and gentle, I keep this at hand for easy use.
Super delicious hydrating, great value!
Love this sample and I will definitely purchase when its gone. This is super smooth hydrating and the price it right! Its a great price for such an effective product! Really heals lips, too!
Moisture and shine
Love the look and feel. Super moisturizing and a pretty yet natural shine. Did not like the smell/taste. I know you aren't eating it but you know when you lick your lip and get a taste of something? It made me nauseous.
