It is the same colour when wet, but once it dries down, the colour actually brightens a bit. It isn’t a direct due colour wise, due to that, but still close enough.This one feels horrible on the lips, you feel it. It also emphasizes all of your lip lines. My lips looked just really bad, like crusty almost. It also takes a good while to dry down, like close to 10 minutes. It lasts about 2 hours, before it starts actually flaking in places.I am not sure if it would be better on younger lips, I might have to try this with a plumper, just to see if it stays okay longer.The only good thing was it smells really good, like I mean really good. Reminds me of my old Bonne Bell lip glosses.
I would not recommend this at all. At least not for someone over 30.
