The product goes on smoothly and has pretty good shine and pigment. I suppose my confusion of the product probably stems from the whole idea of a gloss liner. It's a slippery texture so doesn't really stick in the lines of your lips as is generally expected from a liner. More than anything, I use this product as a lipgloss with precise application and good pigment (not as a gloss liner). The other negative I will say is that the actual pencil part of the product is made out of that hard plastic stuff. When you sharpen the pencil, it leaves hard pointy bits that poke your lips. This is exacerbated by the fact that the liner formula is so soft and kind of just melts down as soon as you make contact with your lip so all that's left is the pointy bits.
