I received the ModelCo Shine lip gloss in the strip tease color in my December Birchbox. In the bottle, it was a very pretty, natural gloss. However, on my lips it was completely clear. The shine was nice, but I didn't find it to add much of an impact on it's own. If I were to use this gloss again, I think it would definitely need to be layered over another lip color. Also, the packaging was gorgeous. I loved the little mirror on the wand. However, the consistency of the gloss made it so that several "gloss strings" stuck between the brush and the bottle when I opened it up, making a neat application a bit tricky on the go.
