Thank you!There is a citrus smell, but no taste. It really feels like a lip balm. There is a light stickiness that last a minute and then it is pure comfort on my lips. There is not a lot of color pay off, but that's what I enjoy about it. Lips feel nourished and I reapply every 2 - 3 hours. It lasts longer over the lip suede. I never liked how lip glosses felt on the lips, but this one is really a more a balm and not comparable to traditional lip glosses.
