Good color, but it does dry out. And the color does not show well when it is applied on. Doesn’t last long either.

Runs out of product quickly, kind of streaky but once you get the hang of using it, it looks very nice on your lips

Dried my lips and settled into the lines. Would not recommend to anybody except for if you mixed it in with a balm

The color was nice, not too bright but not too subtle either. Layering helped alot! For the price, I bought a few!

Very buildable and long lasting. Doesn't come off easily and when it does, comes off evenly. It is a little drying.
