I have really pigmented lips, so this isn't so intense on me. It's such a nice change, it's a sheer with very very subtle shimmer underneath. It's so nice to find something different, not pink, not red, not nude, etc. I'm used to the Nars chrome color lip glosses that you slather on, this one definitely needs a light hand, lest you do get that scary 80's Pat Benatar thing going. Good staying power. Definitely perfect for evening, but you could get away with it during the day, if applied sparingly.
DISGUSTING, the WORST smell ever. Like old bread, not quite yeasty but kind of creme of wheat or some other mushy grain. The color is great, it's like a gloss version of the sweet petunia lipgloss. Itlooks really purple, but it is the best dark lipstick I've ever owned, dramatic and shimmery without being suicidal goth. It's hard to find darker lipsticks that aren't in the brown family. This however is just too disgusting to put on your lips. Buy Sweet Petunia and top it off with a good clear gloss.

I don't know why people hate Tony and Tina lip gloss, it smells like a white tea blend, very clean, not minty or anything gross. It is a little gritty but not unpleasantly so. It's not like a mothful of sandpaper or chapped lip funk. The color is just beautiful, dusty pink with the best shimmer I've ever seen in a lip gloss, not all that glitter nonsense, and not frosty like your aunt edna, not too glassy, just perfect. I'm on my second tube, it's the perfect everyday gloss.
Smells fantastic, not to sweet not too floral, not too citrusy, just the right blend of all three. People are constantly sniffing at my neck (which is not always such a good thing...) The drydown is fresh and powdery so you don't have that synthetic smell that so many other perfumes leave.
Perfect understated pinky blush. I got it in the Face Case "sellout" I wear it every day, can't live without it.
I really thought this was too orange when I bought through sephora.com, but the more I wear it the more I love it. AND orange is NO good for me. It's a little subdued it doesn't quite make your mouth pop like Scandal, it's sheer enough that my lips natural redness shows through.
It's pricey but it lasts for HOURS! I thought it was to tacky at first, but switching back between it and other glosses, made me change my mind...other glosses seem to slide right off my lips. The color is verry I just ate a cherry popsicle. love it.
