I picked up two of these (Sweet Indulgence & Cherry Bloom) at Loblaws for around $6 apiece. These glosses have a unique texture that falls somewhere between gel-like and sticky. They're thick, but they don't glue your lips together. The packaging is a portable squeeze-tube with a slant-tip applicator. The graphics on each tube reflect the scent/flavour of the gloss contained within... very cute. The pigmentation is sheer, but I'd hardly call these clear. Sweet Indulgence tints my lips with a blue-based pink shimmer, and Cherry Bloom is a pinky-copper glaze. Because they're so sheer, the natural pigmentation of your lips will influence your resultant shade quite a bit. They're pretty, but unfortunately the formula is drying on my lips, and they're not as glossy as I'd like. They'd be better named Shine in Moderate Amounts. I wouldn't personally buy these again, but you might like them if your lips aren't prone to dryness and you're looking for a flavoured gloss with more shimmer than shine.
