I absolutely love the flush of color that these give me. Plus they really don't dry out my lips. I did a friend's makeup for her wedding and I used one of these! It was perfect because when it came time for the big kiss it didn't get all over the groom but you could still see the light pink flush of the lipstick.
This is my go to mascara especially when I need a good waterproof kind. It does help with volume but not so much on length. I recommend using it as a second coat on top of a lengthing mascara to help if you want both length and volume.
