Review: Senna Cosmetics Lip Lacquer in Ambrosia

I recently won a Beauty Ticket twitter giveaway for one of the Senna Cosmetics Lip Lacquers. After looking at swatches over the internet, I chose the shade Ambrosia. A sheer pinky shade with gold shimmer.
I'll be totally upfront and honest and say although the shade is pretty, I am not a fan!

The formula is sticky, so sticky, that the wand needs to be constantly swirled in the tube to pick up product and I felt the skin on my hand tighten when I swatched the product (and then when taking off the product, there are a bunch of sparkles that stay stuck to your skin).
It's a very pretty color but very very sheer. I'm going to show 2 different lip swatches. One was taken in my bedroom and one in my bathroom.

So yeah, if you are a fan of MAC lipglasses (I am not) you may like these. Scent seems slightly vanilla-ish to me. 

Senna Lip Lacquer (they weren't joking about the lacquer part!) retails for $19 and can be purchased at various e-tailers the world over (I think).

What's weird is the Senna site describes the gloss as non-sticky?

Lip Lacquer
The yummiest, longest-lasting gloss ever

Super delicious vanilla flavor, amazing lasting power, and full-textured but never sticky formula in the richest colors this side of the rainbow makes this the lip lacquer of choice for any serious lip gloss lover. The icing on the cake is that it conditions lips with Vitamin E and Jojoba. Worn by ‘A’ list celebrities, you may get hooked!
$19.00
 Weird, maybe I got a bad one? Have you guys tried this? What were your thoughts?

The color is pretty, too bad it is sheer.
