For the lip gloss/balm lover in you...
This is a fantastic little gloss!! It is very hydrating, lasts a bit longer than my average gloss/balm and gives my lips that little extra kick of oomph that's perfect for natural or minimal makeup days! It's one of the least sticky gloss/balms I've tried, and it's got a hint of sweet scent (vanilla?) that I quite like!
When you squeeze the tube, product comes out of the sponge tip applicator. I was a bit hesitant about this contraption at first, but now I really love it - it's cushy and makes application really comfortable!! Plus I love that no product is wasted on a traditional doe foot applicator - you know how it always gunks up around the lid?? Yeah, that doesn't happen with this tube!!

Despite the name, 05 Candy Shimmer isn't that shimmery - it gives my lips a natural little shine and luminosity. I'm definitely looking to get more colors...dare I say this might be up there in the ranks of some of my favorite glosses??? Hmmm??!!! :-)
