I wanted to love this, but I like my lip products thicker and with some lasting power. This stuff feels silky and gives a light sheen, but it disappears almost instantly. It's really not great for lasting hydration. I'd rather have it than nothing, but other than the initial silky feel, this one doesn't have much to offer. I suspect it might be a good choice for a smoochable lip product, but the constant need to reapply and the fact that it doesn't really layer well (no way to get a thicker application no matter how much you try) makes it underwhelming to me.
