Just the right amount of thickness with a great glossy shone. It's not the longest lasting lip gloss I've ever tried, but at least it's pleasant to apply. I like that it's clear and can be worn with a lip color. The tip is solid plastic with a small hole to dispense the product. This is a bonus when a friend wants to try it but you don't necessarily want their, ahem, germs. It also prevents contamination with other colors as happens with a wand applicator. I would buy this again, but I'd wait for a sale.
