Pros: adds a hint of subtle color, appealing flavor, glossy finish
Cons: not long lasting

There's a funny story about how I originally came across this lip gloss. I used to work for a birthday party company as Princess Tiana (it's how I worked my way through college). Anyways, one of the “princess” lip glosses they gave to me was this color. By the time I was done with it, the name had rubbed off the bottom and it took me forever to locate it again so I could purchase it for myself! So, now that you can tell how much I live this stuff, here's a break down:

Packaging

The slender shape of the packaging makes it easy to slip into your makeup bag or purse. The inside sponge applicator allows for product to easily be removed from the tube and applied to your lips. It does get a bit sticky once you're near the end of the product. I also feel like there's a bit of product left in the tube once you're done but that's typical of lip glosses.

 I got the color Plum Luster which I think goes very well with my skin tone. It's a shimmery dark plum/red, perfect for fall! I had this color since the beginning and I've never even tried another! I just love this one so much. See how it looks before and after on my lips. It's a natural looking color for me. If you want to layer it over a pink lip stick, go for it! It will make it pop!

Shine

This lip gloss is quite shiny. Perhaps too much for everyday where. (I still wear it everyday anyways.) I t has a pit of sparkle to it as well which adds to the shininess. I would suggest trying it on and see how it fades throughout the day. It kinda dulls down a bit making it less shiny.

Flavor

Fruity! Seriously, this lip gloss has a pleasantly fruiting flavor. It's probably immature of me but I just love to have a gloss that doesn't taste like plastic.

Scent

The smell isn't horrible either. It's not great but not horrible.

Texture

Since it's so shiny, it' definitely feels that way when it's going on. Let's just say you don't really ever forget you're wearing it. It's not sticky... just glossy! After wearing this lip gloss, you're lips will definitely feel moisturized.

Longevity

I find that with this gloss, you have to keep re-applying throughout the day. The good news is that it's easy to re-apply. But when I have my coffee in the morning, I definitely know I'm going to have no lip gloss once I'm done.

Overall

I still love this lip gloss and still wear it quite frequently. It easy and I know that it goes well with my complexion. If you're considering picking it up for yourself, I'd suggest trying it on a night out! They have a nice selection of colors available so I'd also suggest trying different colors to see which one you like the best.
