I found this creme gloss on sale and was eager to try it but was quickly disappointed. First, it takes forever for the gloss to come out - with the first use, I had to twist the base for at least 2 minutes before gloss came out the brush. Even with repeat uses, you still have to twist 5 or 6 times to get gloss to come out, then inevitably, too much comes out. The gloss initially goes on smooth but becomes sticky pretty quickly and feels thick and clumpy on your lips. I kept feeling like I needed to put something over it to smooth it out. Over time the brush gets sticky because the gloss sits on it in between uses. The colors are actually great - lots of muted, soft colors, but I think you can find those colors in other forms that apply easier.
