FYI (2): Maybelline tests its products on live animals. For this reason, I have ceased purchasing their products. This review refers to product use prior to my awareness of their animal testing status.

Due to Maybelline's animal testing policies, I won't be buying this lip gloss again, and I'll miss it.

This is one of those truly perfect products. GORGEOUS packaging, elegant and understated for DS cosmetics. Great applicator should allow for good precision on a variety of lip shapes and sizes. The lip gloss itself is just right, creamy smooth with excellent "slip" and no traveling or bleeding. Remarkably long-wearing, it's lasted me through breakfast and lunch without need of touch-up. Attractive colors in a variety of shades with great color payoff. Finish varies from luminous to creamy. It has a mild fruity-candy type fragrance that dies down quickly. Retailing at $5-$6, it's plenty affordable.

In fact, there's not a single negative I can think to offer about this gloss in terms of its packaging and performance. I've paid a lot more for products that performed a lot less. If you can stomach the idea of this product being tested on the eyes and skin of helpless live animals before it makes its way to your beauty bag, this is a great choice.
