In my opinion, this is a GREAT lipstick for everyday use at your job, out and about, etc. The formula is very creamy and soft - let's not forget the amazing moisture! Usually, I love packing on liquid matte lipsticks, but I wanted something to have in my collection that was simple and moisturizing. The pigment is pretty true to color, for Suede Splash at least. I'm not sure a darker color would have the same look for this brand, but i'd be curious to find out! It lasts as most generic lipsticks do and will come off after a few hours or after an intense meal. I don't find this problematic, especially considering how great it feels to apply! The packaging is great, though i do agree with other reviewers that the band on the actual packaging is more of a color indicator than the bottom sticker. Overall, the product is great with no harsh smells or perfumes and has a great color and moisturizing payoff. I love this as my new everyday work lipstick!
