A decadent lip gloss (with a delicious vanilla-mint flavor!) that allows you to get hooked on the shine, without the sticky hangover.You want a super-shiny gloss, but can't stand the sticky texture? Get your shine fix with Lip Junkie. The soft, cushiony texture goes on smoothly and stays put longer than other glosses. You also get a great color payout (sometimes hard to find in a gloss) and a range of amazing shades, including sheer, pretty neutrals, knockout brights, and a glimmering nearly black. The range of textures and shades will hook even the most jaded junkie. The key ingredient, Maxi-Lip™, plumps the appearance of lips an average of 40% when used daily for a month. (Lip Junkie uses non-irritant plumpers, unlike other glosses that use stinging ingredients to inflame your lips.) The Maxi-Lip actually helps your lips become better defined, super-hydrated, and full. And the flavor? Think yummy wedding mints: a sweet vanilla mint with a little zing that makes breath feel fresh. What else you need to know:Debatably the most exciting part is the soft, angled tip that lays down a smooth, precise application and a molded (not crimped) tube. No more worrying about lip gloss explosions in your bag. The applicator tip is also molded to ensure a mess-free application. And the gorgeous cap looks like a stained glass window: metallic gunmetal over rich purple.

I got this on sale from Urban Decay's website because I thought it would work great to help darken some lipsticks I have (particularly MAC's Rebel). While it works great for that purpose, it's definitely not very wearable on its own, as it makes my lips look oddly gray: it's not opaque enough to turn my lips black but not sheer enough to just darken the natural pink tint. It does add a very pretty, super-glossy, super glittery sheen on top of lipsticks though.Otherwise, it just feels like a typical Lip Junkie gloss: thin, nicely mint-scented, with a tingly feeling due to the plumping stuff in it (I find that the tingling comes through more when the gloss isn't applied over lipstick).

I really like this gloss as a more neutral shade because it has just enough colour to warm up the face, but not so much that you're limited in terms of what eye make up you can wear it with. These glosses on the whole are wonderful in texture because they are not remotely sticky, but actually feel really pleasant when you rub your lips together. The best description I can give is that it almost feels like your lips are laminated. The scent is also really nice because it's so minty and sweet, however I don't really notice the supposed lip-plumping it's meant to provide. The packaging itself is really nice too.
