i bought this lipstick in desire which is a plummy, berry colour. It was incredibly cheap, I think about £2 on eBay, so I wasn't expecting much. The packaging is boring but inoffensive in plain shiny black plastic. The lipstick doesn't look much, but smells nice, goes on smoothly and lasts really well. It doesn't have a particularly special looking finish, and I've seen the same colour and overall look from many drugstore brands but that said, for the price it is pretty enough and I would have no qualms wearing it from day to day just to nip out to the shops etc.

I was lucky enough to find Rose Berry in Tuesday Morning (TJ Maxx type store but more homegoods based.)
The tube for this lipstick is very sturdy but very bulky and is literally impossible to see the actual lipstick color. It doesn't even have a swatch sticker on the bottom, like most lipsticks have. I managed to find one already ripped open to preview the color - seems someone was as annoyed as I was.
the color itself is beautiful. A nice, natural medium pink. It went on so soft and smooth and is highly pigmented.
The staying power is fantastic. It managed to last all day. It faded gradually throughout the day but the color itself was still very noticeable.
It moisturized my lips very well.
Because it is so creamy, a tube would run out quickly. I picked it up for $4 but the retail price is $20. You get such an insulting amount of product for the actual cost. Don't use it on a regular basis because you'll use it up in a matter of weeks. this is why I couldn't give it a full rating.
For the texture and color payoff, this is worth it's naturally high price tag. I do think you're paying half for it's ridiculous packaging but it would be great for traveling because it is solid.
Overall, I would buy this again if I were to find it at the discounted price. Maybe I'd purchase at full price once in a while.
I do recommend this. If you see it, give it a try.

I love these lipsticks and have got 5 of them: Darling (106), Naiveté (108), Rose Berry (119), Cosmopolitan (127) and Fusion (138). Darling is a very soft and subtle pink, a great MLBB. Naiveté is a lovely rose/beige nude. Rose Berry is also a beautiful pink, a tad brighter than Darling. Cosmopolitan is a gorgeous, wearable coral pink and Fusion a bright pink fuchsia. I added a pic showing swatches of all of them.
Their texture is extremely rich and creamy and they are a joy to put on. They come in an array of colours, none of them are of the crazy, overly bright or bold variety and all are very wearable. I adore the packaging, a very sleek and simplistic black tube.
The staying power isn't the best though, and it's definitely not the kind of lipstick that stays put all day, through drinking, eating, smoking and such. So several reapplications throughout the day are needed (at least for me). The price is reasonable for the quality, definitely cheaper than Chanel, CD and other HE brands.
