|A little milky looking close up, but from a normal distance - looks like even coverage. The gold sparkles aren't really apparent on lips, either, which makes this very wearable.|
|The mirror can be useful for brief touch-ups on the go.|
The downside for me, however, is the packaging. The tube has a mirror on the side, which, if you carry it around, will get scuffed up like nobody's business, and there are LED lights in the cap. I understand the intent, but I find it unnecessary and not really successful in practice.
In normal situations, the light is actually a problem. When you apply, the lights do illuminate your lips, but it makes it difficult to see exactly what you're applying because of the way the light falls. At least, that was my problem. I feel packaging gimmicks like this are absolutely unnecessary.
