When at room temperature the body paint is quite thick, like a store-bought can of frosting. When warmed up it is thinner and a little silkier though whichever consistency you prefer it is still easy to spread. Once on the soft bristled paintbrush it stays put at room temperature and drips only slightly when heated. If too cold it will be difficult to paint with and gets a sort of "fudgey" texture. The manufacturer recommends warming it with hot water or in the microwave to get it to the right consistency and then refrigerating after use. It will become sticky if you allow it to dry, or if you lick it off, but a damp cloth will easily take care of the problem.
The flavor and scent of this product is almost identical to a Tootsie Roll, which is more of a chocolate candy taste and aroma than a true chocolate such as a chocolate bar.
What really adds to the sensuous experience of this body paint is the soft, light bristles of the included paint brush. Based on the look I was expecting stiff and scratchy bristles but these felt wonderful on the skin and were just so very feathery. It was able to spread the chocolate well and I might even use it alone just for the delicate tickle it gives sensitive areas of skin. One of the only drawbacks is that whether you lick this off or let it dry you will need to wash off your skin to beat the stickiness. However, the clean up is quite easy, usually just needing a damp cloth, although if you don't use soap the chocolate scent will linger.
The small jar is easy to open but you do need two hands. The lid stays on very tight and doesn't leak so it would travel well.
I personally hate Tootsie Rolls and, to me, that's exactly what this body paint tastes like so I did not enjoy tasting it and would not purchase it again for myself. However, my boyfriend loved this flavor so much that he actually dipped into the jar for non-sexy purposes. Luckily, Kama Sutra offers a variety of flavors so I may find a better match in Dark Chocolate or Caramel. Were the flavor different I would highly recommend it to everyone because it really does add a wonderful and sensual dimension to foreplay and fellatio. Though the flavor isn't my favorite, it's very sexy and interesting to paint my partner's penis with it before giving him a blow job to have that sweetness in my mouth and have it followed up with the saltiness of his ejaculate- it's sort of like having a chocolate covered pretzel.
