I think that the Luminous Satin Lip Lacquer formula falls somewhere between lipstick and gloss. In texture and form, it's more gloss but it delivers more color and is not as shiny as your standard Glossimer. I have Dragon and Ming from the regular line. I'm thrilled to see another pink added to the roster. If you've found the shade Ming a little too light for your taste, Empire might be worth a look. It applies wonderfully opaque and lasts a few hours despite being a liquid formula. I've actually found that during the day, instead of reapplying, I could get away with "reactivating" whatever pigment is left on my lips with some Cherry Chapstick. This technique also works if you find that constant reapplication renders your lips dry. Alternating balm and lipstick will keep your pucker from chapping.
