Great color-- a medium caramel brown that lights up my face. Goes on very glossy, but the glossiness fades after some time. However, the highly pigmented full-coverage color stays on and hugs the lips--a bit too much imo. Although it feels very comfortable and weightless, without balm underneath the color looks dry (almost like it is glued on) on my ever-dry lips after a few hours. Since the color does not fade easily, I also apply balm over it .
The brush wand is useless. It's very easy to apply too much, so I use my fingers. Overall, a
great lipstick, and will definitely try other colors.
