I saw this lipstick and was very curious as to how it would actually work. Sephora offered a deluxe sample size as a point perk, so I had to try it. I loved it so much that I bought the regular size, used up that tube, and ordered another one. When I put this on, it turns the most beautiful berry color. It is literally the perfect shade for me. It kind of stains my lips, so it stays on the whole day, which is nice. I know the color is different for everyone, so if you're able to get a sample that would be really helpful. That way you could see if it adjusts to a color that you like.
