The texture of Gumdrop is different from all the Lip Butters I have tried: It's rather solid and hard that not only it hasn't break from the base after 3-4 uses (the others broke after I twisted them up for picture-taking), it also seem to leave not as thick of a layer (so I don't use up 1/5 of a tube on after each application). To me, it pretty much just feels like a non-squishy waxy balm, which beside sitting on my lips, never actually moisturizes.
Gumdrop (can you see how sheer it is?) , Barry M Palest Lilac, Lilac Pastelle, Endless Lilac - If you are looking for a lilac lipstick that actually show up lilac, you should probably try the other three first.
A few layers of Gumdrop does give a bit of a coverage but consider how sheer it is, the purple just blends right in with my natural lip color, leaving the white floating around = aka giving me a my-lips-but-sicker look. It's not a horrendous, but it certainly isn't flattering.
Overall: A little disappointing how sheer it turned out (you might have better luck with it if your lips aren't as pigmented as mine) but I suppose for a pastel lipstick, the formula is still rather smooth and applies evenly...I don't like this shade but I would probably continued to get suckered in to the Lip Butter range since they are reasonably priced at $ 7.75 (do you know that now the super lustrous glosses are priced 9.99 at CVS?) the shade selection is very tempting, the tubes are very photogenic and consider how fast the ones I have are being used up, they seem like harmless addition to my stash.
