The color was very blochy and didn't look good. It did not apply evenly. I love elf products, but this is not one of them.

This is a beautiful colour. It tastes gross and horrible, makes my lips really chapped after use and fades within the hour.

You get what you pay for. This isn't high quality but is sufficient I guess. It did dry my lips out pretty badly after use.

Affordable and works fantastic! For being a cheaper brand, their quality is on par with more expensive "luxury" brands.
