This formula is described as giving “weightless color with vivid, mirror-like shine” with “rich color with a weightless feel” and contains “moisturizers and anti-oxdants such as sweet almond oil and vitamin E.” The pigmentation is lovely with this shade–not quite opaque but gives a lot of coverage for a gloss and doesn’t look or feel heavy (as really opaque glosses can sometimes look and feel). The thin, non-sticky lightweight texture makes it comfortable to wear and slightly moisturizing. Papaya wore for four hours when I tested it.
It comes with a paddle-shaped applicator, which is a little large and long, so I could see it being more difficult to use on thinner lips. On my lips, it was fine, but I do have fuller lips and it more than covered mine. This is scented with sweetened vanilla, but for whatever reason, the scent disappears after a month or two once I’ve opened it.
