For Best Results
Use the wand to apply lipgloss starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to outer edges of your lips, following the contour of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.
Thoughts: For years, I've been wanting to try this brand lipgloss. The thing that was holding me back was that I never heard anything about it in the blogosphere. I'm not too sure why. :/ Since it's on sale, I said why not. It doesn't hurt to try.
Here's a closer look at the color. It's very true to color and I'm not to sure why it's more whiter on the top.

The packaging is also very simple and nothing new. I've seen similar packaging. The one that comes to mind is Flower from Walmart.
Here's the sponge-tip applicator. It's slightly slanted and I find it very easy to use.
Here's a swatch of the lipgloss. It's a gorgeous pinky-lavender color.

Now how it looks on me...
It looks like light pink on the lips, but it isn't. The flash of the camera flashes it out.
Here's the genuine color. It's so gorgeous and I love the color!

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the lipgloss smells heavenly. For sometime I've been trying to pinpoint the smell until it hit me today. It smells like bubblegum. Secondly, the product is very creamy. There's no hint of sparkles and it's very shiny. It goes on smoothly, and the consistency is not too thick and not too thin like liquidy. It's also not too sticky, but I wouldn't completely say it's not sticky. It has a slight stickiness but not to the point hair will stick on it. While shopping today, the wind blew my hair in front of my face. The hair did not stick onto the lipgloss. I give it two thumbs up for that! Lastly, it has a decent lasting powder. It tasted until I ate or drank something. I also love that there was no white residue in the middle of the lips from dryness. This did not dry out my lips.

Pros:
* Maybelline; a great brand.
* Simple packaging.
* Can see the color from the package.
* Bended sponge-tipped applicator.
* Smells like bubblegum.
* Pigmented.
* Shiny.
* No sparkles.
* Creamy.
* Medium consistency.
* Not sticky.
* Good lasting power.

Cons:
* Limited edition; Summer 2013 Collection.

Would repurchase: Yes!
