This product was ok, the color wasn't what I expected and it didn't seem to last very long. Started peeling very quickly.

Leaves a nice tint but is not super pigmented. I found that it does show up on the lips but is a much more subtle color.

Probably my least favorite lipstain ever. The colors sinks into any creases, dries your lips out, and comes on splotchy.
