I took a chance on this gloss before there were any reviews, so you don't have to. The packaging is gorgeous, I love the tube and the applicator. I can tell that the scent they were going for is a sweet mint like many other "plumping" glosses, but it almost smells kind of bitter like when minty lip products expire if you've ever experienced that. I don't know if that's typical, or if the one I received was old. When you apply it, it feels a little cooling, which is nice. I got the shade "horoscope" which is plenty sparkly which I like, but the glitter is definitely gritty, which doesn't bother me but is worth mentioning because I know it bothers others. The biggest con for me with this gloss was that it wasn't very shiny at all, and all shine that it has initially wears off quickly. In the horoscope shade in particular, the glitter hangs around after the shine has worn off, which is nice. I like that this brand is clean, but I wouldn't recommend or repurchase this gloss.
