There’s no need for double-dipping thanks to the wide, doe-foot applicator that glides ever-so-smoothly across your lips to deliver a non-sticky sheen.

Right from the first twist of the lid, it’s bouncy jelly texture pushes the applicator up and out — it’s safe to say we’re not the only ones who can’t contain our excitement! In four semi-sheer, milky shades, glide on the smoooothest, long-lasting shine for irresistibly kissable lips.
