Color, Texture, Consistency
Honey colored, light weight, glossy gel- liquid in the bottle. (there is a small transparent window on the other side of the container) It is neither to thick nor too runny. The dual layered formula is a mix of oil and water infused with botanical ingredients. 

Scent and Taste
It smells like Lychee jelly and is very pleasing. Not overwhelming like other Amore Pacific products. The taste is bitter. Not too bitter, but not something I would enjoy if I accidentally licked it. As this is a lip product, the taste factor is of utmost importance to me. 

This is a dual layered formula, which means the two layers are separated and it is very important to shake the bottle well before each application. There is a decent sized sponge applicator, that has weird brown dots on the tip, which I believe are due to green tea extracts. One or two swipes are enough to coat the lips with thin layer of the serum.

Feel and Effect on the Lips
The product feels super light weight on the lips, without being thick, sticky or heavy. It literally feels like water on application but leaves a thin greasy film. It is absorbed by the lips almost instantly and hydrates and moisturizes the lips making them soft, supple and appear full. The lips look smooth, shiny and healthy. The moisture doesn’t last for long. I find myself re-applying the product multiple times. (once every hour and half or so) It doesn’t peel or dry my lips. I didn't had any perioral issues with boils or redness. It is easy to layer lipstick over this serum and vice versa. 

Cute shiny bottle, with a transparent window on the side. It helps to figure out if the bottle is full or empty. Comes with a sponge applicator that is shaped to mimic green tea flower. I like the design. It is broad and slightly concave on one side. The size is perfect enough to cover and hug the whole lips and the pointed tip easily fits into the corners of the mouth. The design of the bottle does not allows the sponge to over saturate itself with product. 

Final Thoughts
It is a decent product. As a serum, other than the non sticky/tacky, light weight texture in user friendly portable bottle, I didn’t find anything unique in this serum to justify the high price tag. It does moisturize, but then so do my cheaper lip balms. The hydration doesn't last for very long time. Re-application is needed. It does make the lips look plump and glossy for short amount of time. So, it is good to have in my purse as it layers well over a lipstick and makes the lip look full and shiny, like a luxurious lip gloss with some added benefits for the lips. 

As far as the ingredients are concerned, I think addition of Alcohol in a nourishing lip serum seems unnecessary, though I think that it is the alcohol that gives the serum that lovely light weight texture. Maybe in the longer run, with constant use, I might see some additional benefits.
