I received a complimentary sample for my honest review. The lipstick glides on and does not dry out my lips like other brands. The tube has a magnetic type closure that is amazing. For the most part, I really did enjoy this lipstick. I am giving it four stars because it has a bit of a weird fragrance to it and while the color does seem to stain the lips, there is a lot of transfer and you must be careful not to smear it accidentally.
