Mediocre gloss

So, I'm always on the hunt for a new, effective lip gloss. My key considerations are texture/consistency, price point, smell (if any), taste (if any) and wearability. I generally reapply gloss 15-20 times per day; it's an obsession. Overall, I found this product to be middle of the road as glosses go. I was disappointed initially by the color. While mildly terrified that I would be receiving the hot pink version, I remained open minded. What I received however, was a very light coral with a gold shimmer base; completely unflattering to my light-medium skin with neutral undertone. It had the effect of making me appear almost corpse like. So, I redoubled my efforts and decided to focus on the texture, etc. The texture itself was slightly grainy, owing to that shimmery base no doubt. Initially inoffensive after about 15 minutes gave rise to the feeling of fine grain sand trapped on one's lips. It was not however, overly tacky---this proverbial kiss of death for good as far as I'm concerned. Happily it didn't smell or taste like anything, also a must. So, all in all, a middle of the road find for me; I'll keep for emergencies, to combine with other products or wear over a drying lipstick if need be but will not likely purchase unless the formula changes to some degree.
