I received this in a mystery box, and my original thought was "Oooof... What a boring color!" No way! It looks great on bare lips, or over other colors. It has a lovely golden sparkle to it that makes it more interesting than just a normal "nude" gloss. Can't say it plumps a ton, but it's not sticky, tastes nice, and gives me a polished look. Very happy to have discovered it, because I wouldn't have bought it otherwise!
