It comes in a sturdy transparent cylindrical plastic tube with a shiny steel screw cap. It is totally leak proof, hence travel friendly. It comes in usual silver colored carton of colorbar. The gloss doesn’t have any seal.
It has a doe foot applicator. It helps in even and smooth coverage and glides seamlessly on lips. But, some of the product gets trapped in the applicator.
It looks like copper brown-magenta color in the tube loaded with shimmer. But, when applied on the lips, it just gives a sheer coverage. It appears like nude brown color on lips with lots of shimmer. It is a perfect color for night time parties. But might be difficult to wear in daylight because of the shimmer. It doesn’t hide any pigmentation of the lips because of its sheer coverage.
It is slightly sticky. The gloss doesn’t dry out my lips at all. Infact, it’s moisturizing. I have never felt the need to apply lip balm beneath it. The shimmer particles are very subtle, and not at all gritty. It doesn’t settle into fine lines on my lips.
It has a mild pleasant fruity fragrance, but is not at all overpowering and doesn’t linger for long.
The color shows up in a single swipe. It provides a sheer coverage, wont hide out the pigmentation of lips. The color can be layered up to provide more coverage.
It stays on my lips for about 3-4 hours. It doesn’t disappear with meals. I am impressed with the staying power. The other glosses I have don’t stay on my lip for more than 2 hours.
