Makeup by Mario Apricot Glow MoistureGlow Plumping Lip Serum ($22.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a brighter, medium coral with warmer, more orange-leaning undertones paired with a lightly sparkly, cream finish. It felt like a lipgloss and lip balm hybrid, as it had the shine and creaminess of a gloss with the slip of a lip balm that's melted in one's pocket.
This shade had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The color applied evenly across my lips but settled into my lip lines a bit. This was one of two shades I tested for wear (due to the plumping factor, which I did not anticipate, and I have had allergic reactions to past lip plumping products), and it lasted for four hours and felt non-drying after I removed it. The cooling, minty plumping feel lasted for almost an hour.
