I bought this lipliner in the Black Red shade. First of all, I may have made a mistake buying such a dark shade, because it doesn't match very well with many of my lipsticks that I own. It is a very bright, pure red color while most of my lipsticks are plum or brown based burgundy reds. So I was not pleased with the shade. Another thing I didn't like was the application of this lipliner, it felt much too soft and creamy, which while nice and comfortable, meant the line it drew was too thick and not defined enough and the staying power wasn't good as it smudged a bit. However, I did appreciate that this lipliner went on smoothly and didn't tug. I will still be using a different lipliner from now on.
