The creators made sure it celebrates the 90s formula without the heavy stickiness. It offers ultra-glossy and hydrating consistency, with a selection of shades in quirky names (Miracle, Hallucination, and Spring Fling). The only con is its yummy flavour! You may need a strong will to stop licking your lips.
