I like this gloss. A lot. I bought it in Dare Devil on Saturday after initially wanting another Buxom plumping gloss (I like the sting). Sephora was all out and the Bare Minerals at my mall doesn't carry Buxom, so I was sort of S.O.L. there. However, I had seen this gloss on Michelle Phan in her newest video (though, I'm certain she had a lip color on underneath which she slyly didn't reveal the name of because she clearly wasn't advertising it) and figured I'd give it a go. So far, so good.
I love the minty smell and cooling, tingling sensation. It does feather a little, but all glosses do on me even with a liner, so that's not surprising. What I really love about this gloss is that unlike every other "plumping" gloss (including the Buxom ones) it actually seems to make my lips appear bigger! It must be the super moisturizing formula mixed with the mirror shine gloss causing my pout to look pucker perfect or something. I adore it!
As I said, it's super moisturizing. I don't even wear a balm with it - it's just insanely hydrating on its own.
The color (Dare Devil, as I mentioned before) leaves a gorgeous MLBB finish which seems to stay behind a tad even after the bulk of the gloss is gone. I love that, seeing as my lips have no real pigment of their own.
As far as staying power, it's alright. I reapply a couple times a day, but usually only after eating or drinking. It seems to withstand talking and laughing and all that pretty well. It's not sticky - it's thick, but very comfortable. I tend to like a sticky gloss because they are longer lasting, but this formula rivals every sticky gloss I've ever used in terms of staying power, so that's pretty great.
It's a little pricey (though cheaper it seems at Bare Minerals than Sephora), but I don't mind since this is near HG status for me.
Oh, and let's discuss the packaging. The elongated, angled doe-foot style applicator is wonderful. Coats my entire lip in one pass, which is nice. I don't like small applicators even though my lips are quite small. The appearance of the packaging is nice and simple which is always a plus to me. I like glass containers for lip gloss because they feel classier to me than plastic.
Over all, I really love this gloss. I will definitely repurchase this color and also get myself one in every other color because to me (and to my usually bone-dry lips), it's totally worth it.
