The formula is supposed to be "sheer" with "brilliant bursts of irregular shaped glitter fragments that capture and reflect light." Of the four shades, they were bordering on translucent rather than just sheer, and I wouldn't say they had "bursts" of glitter. Sucker was the only one with really visible shimmer/sparkle/glitter from a normal viewing distance, while the others were very sparse and difficult to disperse evenly over my lips.

If you go by the brand's promotional swatches, they're noticeably sheerer. The only shade with a noticeable tint applied (and I have lighter natural pigmentation in my lips) was As If, which had a darkening effect. The glosses seemed to have a creamy, moderately shiny consistency that didn't seem too thin or too thick and wasn't tacky, but all of the glitter was noticeable, and the "irregular shaped" part was very obvious as if I pressed my lips together, I felt something sharp (not just the feel of texture). After eating, I actually had a piece between my teeth I had to floss out (weird experience!). At times, I actually felt

The lack of actual glitter in most of the shades made them appear more like a shiny, translucent gloss but not something that was really sparkling, glittering, etc. They looked far less dimensional than I'd expect based on the claims and formula description, even accounting for the difference between in person viewing vs. still photos shot with a camera.

They had a sweet, vanilla scent with no discernible taste. They lasted between one and two hours on me and felt lightly hydrating overall. If not reapplied shortly, the glitter pieces did migrate/flake off.

This does not show up on the lips as grey or silver. It is clear with big chunks of glitter. The glitter is sharp and you can feel it cutting you when you press your lips together. There is very little discernible difference between the four shades, so if clear and sparkly gloss appeals to you, one of the shades would be sufficient.
