Cool moisturizer, just not a "gloss"
I did buy this on a whim when I was at the Hello Gorgeous counter at Greenhills. I'm a sucker for anything cinnamon-y, so even though I'm not a gloss-type person, I snatched it up anyway. I admit the "lava" effect has its appeal, and it looks cool. I'm satisfied by the cinnamon scent, and I imagine that it does work as a lip plumper, since you can feel a slight, comfortable heat putting it on. But as far as being a "gloss" though, it doesn't fit the bill. It does leave a nice, clear sheen on your lips (the red in the product doesn't actually color much, take note) and it isn't tacky like most glosses. But it does actually evaporate/dissipate pretty quickly, even when left alone on the lip. Unless you would want to be reapplying constantly, it wouldn't really work as a gloss alone on the lip. It's also inconvenient to layer over other products since the roll-on would roll off whatever lip you already have on. Okay as a general moisturizer or lip plumper, sure, but gloss? I'd say look elsewhere.
