This gloss is not for pigment, but for a shimmery lip. It is easy to wear and looks and feels great. Very hydrating and it does have a bit of staying power even though there is no evidence of stickiness. I wear it alone and on top of other colors that need some polish. This is a must have for me in my purse when I have nothing else.
I live in drier environments so this toner works great to hydrate and leaves my skin feeling clean and supple. If I lived in humid environments, I assume this may feel too hydrating therefore feeling sticky. I love this toner, I think it makes my skin feel and look great. The glass bottle has a big hole as the opening so you can really waste a lot if you use cotton balls. I use it right out of the shower and use my clean palm to cup the top, turn it over and it leaves just enough for me to clap two hands together and use as a splash. It prepares my skin for sunscreen application. Since the bottle is glass, you have to be careful not to drop it, it may break the bottle or it may break your tile floor. Not the most practical packaging, but it sure is pretty sitting on your counter. I will be buying this again and may transfer it to a spray misting bottle to keep it sanitary.
