Horrible taste & horrible feeling on the lips like grease The smell is overpowering like granny perfume. Would NEVER buy again.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Dry, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
This is a heads-up for anyone scent-sensitive, like me: this lippy is very perfumey. In a bad, castor oil mixed with strong old-fashioned l/s fragrance kind of way. Otherwise, the color and wear was fine (for the one hour I withstood wearing it!).

Couleurs Nature Sheer and Shine Lipstick is describes as "Lips are glossed with an appetizing gel shine. Full, luminous, well-moisturised, lips remain supple throughout the day.
A rich, melting balm texture which leaves your lips soft. Brilliant semi-transparent colours which wear well on the lips. A subtle finish and lasting shine
Sheer and Shine Lipstick contains all the natural benefits of organic argan oil."
The reason I ordered these lipsticks was that I wanted rich transparent color. That they have, in fact, GELÉE CASSIS is a color I was searching for for a long time, the perfect dark, but transparent cool darker reddish tone, not bright at all, but still with enough brightness to make me not look dead.
There are spare sparkly particles that actually look good, but not that noticeable. One layer was perfect for nighttime wear. Initially, it is a bit glossy and feels moisturizing, but sinks into the lips fast and leaves a pretty stain that stays put, but feels dry. I like layers of lip balm, and if I put on more lipstick, the color gets too intense for me, more dark fuchsia. Also, more layers will keep the glossiness longer, but I need a lip liner to prevent it from straying.
GELÉE CERISE is a cool lighter red that I though would have to be saved for summer, but works well in the cold snowy winter light. Again, one layer gets the perfect color, but feels too dry for me after a while. Yes, a bit of lip balm would work, but I would prefer to be able to just apply more lipstick. I will try another less bright shade to see how that works.
Faint, non offensive smell.
I would like to give it 3,5 as they are far from perfect, but feel drawn to use them anyway most days, so 4 it is.
