I was really looking forward to having the 'perfect pink' lip, but was disappointed when I received it yesterday from qvc. The color on me was not as described on the website: 'a pale shimmery pink'. Instead, it appeared orangy/red on my lips. It did feel smooth, not dry & seemed like it would last most of the day. But for $21 that I paid for this lipstick, it was not worth it if I was not truly happy; this was sent back to qvc for a refund.
Smashing Close -Up is a beautiful soft rosey pink shade with shimmer. I probably don't need another pink lipstick, but this colour is so pretty I couldn't pass it up. Looks nice with Lancome's Bolole Juicy Tube on top.
