This is the first lip gloss type product that I really liked (so much that I bought another one before my sample ran out!)
It is not sticky, gunky, messy or overly shiny. A little goes a long way so I will get a lot of use out of it. Best is that my lips do not feel dry when waring it.
And the color "red velvet" looks great on my pale skin even thought it looks very dark in the tube.
