I've used this lipgloss since it first came on the market. Used daily in the morning it keeps my lips smooth and hydrated, never any problems with dryness or cracks. If I want lipstick for more color it goes on top. An add on during the day gives extra fullness and definition. Used like this every one has lasted me over a year.
This product does what it says it's going to do: It makes my lips a bit fuller, to very nice effect. BUT after a few days of use, tiny white-tipped bumps started popping up around the edges of my lips. A cosmetologist told me that it's the "injected collagen" simply needed somewhere to go... a very unpleasant surprise, and greatly disappointing.
You don't get an intense color, but it's a very light reddish-orange. I put it on at night and the next day my lips are still soft. It definitely works. With me, it's just keeping the bow of my upper lip in shape. I love this but am looking for the right lipliner.
