When I bought this, I thought I was getting a fantastic deal since the lipgloss is so huge. Well, it is a good deal at 1/2 off, but the tube is very deceptive! It looks like you're getting way more gloss than the norm, but in reality it's only 0.15oz. For comparison purposes, MAC Lipglass have 0.17oz, Stila Lip Glazes are 0.08oz and Hard Candy Glossaholics have a whopping 0.38oz. So never let an item's packaging fool you! Look at the actual net weight before you buy it ^_^;
And now for the bad news: I think this color is discontinued ... it's not on the Sephora website and obviously it was half off the regular price in-store. So if you're interested in this color, I'd advise either calling your local Sephora to see if they have any left, or turning to evilBay - sorry :(
Although the tube is tricksy and doesn't contain as much product as it would seem, and the gloss feels super different on my lips but doesn't really plump them, I am actually very pleased with this gloss! I really didn't buy it for plumping; I bought it because of the color and the price, and on those counts it doesn't let me down. I'm not sure I'd buy one of these at full price unless I had another giftcard, but this set of seven mini Lip Polishes for $15 (originally $29) is very tempting :) To the birthday wishlist!!
*I can't remember what the other shade on sale was >_<
