I am giving this lipgloss a 6 because I'm torn. The price is nice and it is now on sale on the E.L.F. website. This gloss has a good bit of shimmer without being too much to wear to work. I love the applicator which is the sponge type, my favorite. The thickness of the gloss will make it last longer than most. Now for the cons. The colors of this gloss seem to be strange. I have three. Sorority Girl is much darker than pictured on the website but it is still a pretty color nonetheless. It's almost my exact lip color which is close to a rose hue so it is my go to for a natural look. Au Natural is pretty but doesn't match my light skin very well. Maybe Au Natural would match better on an olive or darker skinned person. My big complaint specifically is the Pageant Princess (along with many other pink E.L.F. products). It is the wierdest color of pink I've ever seen. It is like a salmon hue as opposed to a baby pink as they portray on the site. There is a strange orange tint to it that does not compliment the fair skinned as the color portrayed on the site would have. My last complaint is that the consistency is hard to work with. It takes a few tries to get it right and makes it kind kf high maintenance for a gloss.
