L'Oreal HiP High Intensity Pigments Color Presso is a Decent Gloss in Weird Packaging.

I think this is a pretty ingenious product - the ability to take two colors to blend on the lips, or just the ability to carry them together is pretty sweet.

However, it looks much cooler than it actually is. It took me near five minutes just to figure out how to open the cap, and another two minutes to figure out how to get the product out. There is a trick to it - you can't just apply it and go at first.

The gloss is nicely pigmented, but after using it, I wasn't really sure what the benefit was of having two lipglosses to blend. It get it with heavier lip color, but it almost seems like overkill with the gloss. However, the gloss itself is nicely pigmented, and not sticky at all. I was a little put off by the smell, which reminded me of an overly sweet vanilla cupcake.
