I am so sad that this was an LE :(!!! It was my ABSOLUTE favorite lip gloss, it tasted JUST like caramel apples, had a STRONG flavor and fragrance (good for da boys ;)!), and it was quite moisturing--check for it on ebay, or i'd be willing to swap for it if you have it :)!!!

The caramel apple scent is great and I really liked the color. Unfortunately the packaging is a strange choice for lip gloss. They used the same type of tube as Bonne Bell Eye D'Votion, with a soft material at the tip; it works well for eye shadow but NOT lip gloss. The lip gloss ends up getting absorbed more by the tip than actually put on my lips. After wearing it awhile, my lips felt kind of waxy from the gloss. Just a so-so product.

I agree with the others in that this is a dead ringer for the taste of caramel apples. It is sticky, but not as sticky as MAC lipglasses. I didn't see any shimmer or sparkles in this one, just a sheer pinky beige color. After a while, I notice it gives a tingling feeling (like UD's XXX shine mint tingling glosses). Very weird, but I don't mind. :)

.------------------------ UPDATE: If I want to pay what MK wants for this garbage I'd rather buy high end brands or even MAC and Urban Decay.---------------------------------------------UPDATE: I used to love mk products but found out a lot of interesting information on pinktruth.com regarding the products and company. Turns out they are a bunch of scam artists after all. So sad.----------------------------MY OLD REVIEW________________Although a bit ont he pricey side for a twist up style gloss, the quality is excellent. I picked up the shade PINK LEMONADE. It is a sheer pink with sparkles throughout. The look is incredibly glossy and the feel is silky smooth. This also has a sweet taste to it which a younger crowd will like but I don't mind it myself. Also has a bubble-gumish scent. UPDATE - Is it just me or does this gloss formula make your lips feel numb too? Weird.

In a word - YUM! The best, truest caramel apple scent and flavor in a lip product yet! These are limited edition, and part of the Velocity line for Spring. Twist-up gloss that dispenses through little holes like Revlon's lip glides. Beautiful color, too - a shimmery, light beige, and the scent and flavor are to die for! Definitely pick these up while they are still around. Also comes in Grape Burst, Orange Rush, Very Cherry, Coconut Creme, Melon Glaze, and Pink Lemonade.
