I will say, this lip gloss was not sticky like most glosses tend to be. The texture is definitely smoother than most, which I appreciate, but it still doesn't really do it for me. I can feel it sitting on my lips, and that is still something I don't care for. I don't like the applicator tip personally, but I can see what they were trying to do with it. I didn't really think it made much of a difference for precision, but I am lucky to have very naturally full and plump lips, so I tend to like a bit of a larger applicator anyway. Someone with thin lips would benefit from this applicator. I did love the color. I am not a big fan of high shine and glossy lips, I'm more of a matte kind of woman, but this color is great and works really well for me. I will use this, and for those that like the glossy like, I absolutely recommend this one....I simply don't care for gloss so wouldn't purchase it for myself.
