Too sticky and difficult to apply. I'd rather wear something that applies easily and reapply more often (it's fun)! On the plus side, this thing wears longer than most lipsticks.
Color is an orange-leaning corally nude. Despite the dry/sticky texture it is creamy, not matte, with no sparkle or shimmer.
Unpleasant, musty/paint smell.
I don't purchase EL products anymore since they are no longer cruelty free, but I wouldn't repurchase this even if they were.
