Pricey lipstick ($26.50 at Saks' YSL counter) but a wonderful creamy formula! The shade I purchased, Mauve City, is actually a scary-looking fuschia in the tube, but it looks very nice on, because it is sheer. It's a little more pink than most mauves, but it looks very fresh and pretty for spring/summer if applied with a light hand. (Just FYI, I am a FFF with blue eyes and blondey-brown hair) There is a slight hint of a rose scent, so test it out before purchasing to see if it bothers you. If you find a color that suits you, it's a worthy splurge. My lips feel much more moisturized than with other lipsticks.
