"It's easy to put on, but you have to be careful because if you layer it too much, it starts to flake a bit. It goes on smooth, and then dries down to a sticky texture; but then you add the gloss side, and it's smooth and shiny. It stays on about eight hours — if you don't use oil-based makeup remover, you will wake up with it still on in the morning."
"It looks like lipstick. It's more like a warm red than a bright red. I didn't taste anything specific that I could remember. Definitely wasn't chalky or nasty. The texture was medium bodied, meaning not too liquidy like lip gloss, but not too much like Chapstick, which feels heavy. I would say it's in the middle. I'd rate this a 4. I like it because it didn't leave a stain on my lips."
"This has become my favorite lipstick for Saturday night, because it lasts through multiple glasses of wine and appetizers (and kissing, if my boyfriend gets lucky). I'd give this a 4 because it's dependable, but I have to take off a point for flaking after the reapplication."
Final score: 4
