This is a great YLBB color--a pinky-rose that's not too dark, not too light--with *very* subtle shimmer (it looks slightly darker on the lips than in the tube). The twist-up liner is slightly darker. The lipstick feels very light on the lips, the color has great staying power that leaves a stain, and, while it's not terribly moisturizing (it bills itself as a semi-matte), it's not drying. The component is well constructed--the caps stay securely on both the lip pencil and lipstick ends--so it's safe to carry anywhere. It is pricey at $24, but if you use lip liner consistently, it's a pretty good deal and very convenient.
