I ordered this without sampling it. Well worth it! The texture and thickness on my lips is perfection. It's not sticky in a bad way at all, but just the right amount of slickness that stays put and makes my lips look plumper than they are. The scent is delicious. Bonus mirror on the side of the tube, so reapplying at work I only have to get out my lip gloss to do a touch up. No compact necessary! Love it.
