Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Plumping Treatment in Sheer Blush

Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Plumping Treatment (I got a 2-dollar Sally Hansen coupon from the CVS red machine and this was on clearance at $1.87) is a lip-plumping gloss in a gaudy gold packaging. The brush applicator is tiny and it takes several re-dips to coat the whole lips.
Unlike other Sally Hansen lip treatment, which all wore comfortably and gives, at most, a slight tingly sensation. This actually smells and feels a bit medical on the lips and creates a bit of a sting (Luckily, the formula seems a bit watered down so it wasn't painful to wear). Sheer Blush is small golden shimmer suspending a clear, semi-viscous base. The color is more or less clear on the lips unless you add several layers.
 It's a bit tacky but unlike those ultra-glassy glosses, it doesn't smooth out the lip lines right away (it soak things up eventually though). I guess the whole dilution is a big trend in beauty industry (and they probably thing that we, the "dumb" female customers would never notice such thing).  Speaking of skimping on ingredients, do you know that the 1-dollar 5-piece nuggets in Wendy's Dollar Menu is officially 4-piece? (I remember it was still five piece last fall, except they raised the price to around $1.25)

Overall: I probably won't buy it if it weren't for the CVS coupon. $1.87 is still too much for a boring gold gloss that wears somewhat uncomfortably and feels sticky (I mean, the Revlon golden flakie All That Glitters was only $1.5).
