3 lipsticks for having an overall nice formula that was pleasant to use, although I really didn't like the color on me. It leans toward being a sheer "blackened" shade rather than a purple or wine, and as such it gave me a bad case of brown 90's lips. The color I was looking for turned out to be much closer to Sephora Ultra Shines in Purple Honey, which is a more true plum-leaning purple and leaves a dark berry flush on the lip. Sheer Dark Honey is probably better for women with darker skin or who look better in brown.
So far so good. It works well on my two toned lips ( my bottom lip is a bit lighter than my top one). It is a pretty sheer purple, with shimmer. I like the Milani crystal glosses that I have tried so far because of the shimmer- its not too much and I cant feel them. The last thing I need is a lip gloss exfoliating my lips and leaving them lookin' crusty. If you are darker skinned, alone it my show up as a clear gloss, but its still pretty. It is, somehow, dark enough to tone down a vivid lipstick, if you so choose. Hope this helps!
