They are some kind of balm-gloss hybrid... When you apply just a tiny bit they feel like a balm, layer them up for a pretty medium-colour gloss. They feel gorgeous and moisturising on the lips and not overly-sticky.
They taste super yummy, just like vanilla ice cream (The taste actually reminds me of my favourite MAC lipglosses - the cremesheen glasses!)
They are twist up, so no annoying sharpening.
