I think I must be the only one who isn't completely blown away by these. The texture these is fine - they are in fact, "buttery" smooth. However, the glitter bits can be a bit gritty in some of these lipsticks. I found that after the lipsticks had worn off, I still had these grimy particles left on my lips. Also, while they do glide on and give your lips a glossy finish, I didn't find they were moisturizing. I think the Maybelline advertisement said something like 94% of women thought these were moisturizing - I guess I must be the 6% because I truly did not. But my lips are also pretty finicky and pretty dry, so take that with a grain of salt. Plenty of reviewers have said that these are moisturizing to them, so I think it's a more individualistic thing.
I do think however, that the color of these is quite nice. I don't find they apply patchy (not the colors I picked anyway) and they do not smell of anything (that I can detect). They do not wear for more than 2 hours, but given the type of product it is, I'm not bothered by this. I don't find they leave behind a stain on the lips, but that might just be because I chose lighter colors - I can't comment on the darker shades. They are not very pigmented but this didn't bother me either - I expected them to be a cross between a gloss and lipstick and the level of pigmentation was appropriate for the formula in my opinion.

While the packaging is plastic and light, I quite like it anyway. I like that the outside of the packaging is supposed to represents the lip color inside. Whether it represents the color accurately is debatable, but I like it nonetheless. And I really like the pattern on the cover - it's cute without being gimmicky or too girly. Points for that.
Of my three choices, I've particularly been taken by Pink Truffle. It's a neutral brown/pink color that would suit pretty much anyone. It's the kind of lipstick I can put on without worrying about matching my eye makeup - I like that lot!
Botttom line is that I'm neutral about them. I like them but I could have lived without them. I have lip products at the moment I prefer which offer better pigmentation and longer wear time. But that's not to say that these aren't good. They are! If you don't have anything similar, I highly suggest you pick up a tube, try it out for a bit, then if you love it, pick up more! Again, I went safe with lighter colors, so I can't comment on the darker shades, but take a peek around the internet for more reviews - there's a slew of them out there!
I hope this was relatively helpful. I know there's a lot of reviews of these on the Blogosphere but I thought I'd put my thoughts on these out there as well, just in case ;)
Hope your week is going well!
