I love the color! It's a brownish red that is slightly dark, but I think it looks great on my light skin and really compliments my dark hair and the brown in my eyes. I think it's really sexy looking, so maybe too vibrant for the office? Anyways, the color itself is a little dry, making it a little difficult to apply when you have dry lips, but applying the topcoat over it has made my lips feel much more moisturized. It generally lasts for a while, as long as you don't eat anything rough in texture. When it does come off, it's like chipped nail polish and looks a bit odd.
