I love the color and the staying power. Its not too bright like so many stains and lipsticks are (to me b/c I'm more of a gloss girl). It looks like it has a bit of sheen for the first bit of wear and then that wears away but the color is still left behind.
The only two things I don't like are 1) its mint scented & I hate that b/c I hate mint except in my toothpaste and 2) its feels dry. Its not like a balm IMO. However I do enjoy wearing this over my Chapstick in the blue tube.
