I own this wonderful lipstick in place de la concorde. this color is a milky pink color, and honestly isn't a hit for me. It is extremely pigmented and is suposed to be a dupe for MAC's Lady Gaga lipstick. Because it is so pigmented I have to be VERY carefull not to overapply. I usually just pat this on for a little tint on my lips and then it looks okay, but if i apply this full on, my lips look like I'm an "adult movie" star.
The lipstick is very creamy, goes on smooth and lasts quite well. It lasts a couple of hours, but if you do some heavy drinking (it survives a sip) or eat something you'll probably have to reapply. But honestly, most (if not all) of my lipstick need reapplication after drinking and eating. The packaging looks a tad cheap but is very sturdy and as mentionned by the other reviewer: can be used as a mirror!
I am definetly not happy with this color but that is my own fault (I should have tried it instead of just grabbing it on the go), but the quality of this lipstick is undeniably great. Even if it was much more expensive I would still like it, so it's not the "good quality for the price" kind of good. This can definetly match my high end lipsticks. For that reason I will buy more colors in the future... but try them first this time.

After an underwhelming experience with a liquid eyeliner from the German brand p2, I had pretty much given up on it. But when I saw a YouTube guru rave about the p2 Pure Color Lipsticks, I decided that, what the heck, I'd check them out next time I was in a dm drogerie markt (to which the brand is, I believe, exclusive). I'm glad that I did because they are gorgeous--smooth, richly pigmented with a buttery shine and no discernible smell or taste--and extremely cheap--less than 2 euros a pop! I only bought one (though I plan to go back for more), in the shade Ku'Damm (all are named after famous streets or public squares), a beautiful deep pink. Applied full strength, it's a dupe for my beloved, but wretchedly expensive, Bobbi Brown Rich Color Gloss in Pink Raspberry--perhaps slightly less glossy. It's equally nice patted on with a finger for a soft, non-drying "stain." I use scare quotes because it's not particularly long lasting. At this price, I don't mind frequent reapplications. Also, the silver plastic tube isn't very attractive, but I don't really mind, especially since, as I discovered, the lid can be used as a mirror for on-the-go touch-ups. All in all, this is a fantastic product. If ever you find yourself in the vicinity of a dm drogerie markt, I highly suggest you check it out!
Edit 1: I went back and got another one of these lipsticks in the shade Regent Street. It's a beautiful, creamy pinky peach that I'm sure I'll be wearing a lot come spring/summer. (It's a little much for me for winter.) My one complaint is that it emphasizes every flake if you've got lips that are a little chapped (another reason it doesn't work so well for me in winter). The other shade I have, Ku'Damm, is much more forgiving, in addition to being a color for all seasons. Still, this is gorgeous and I'm glad I picked it up.
Edit 2: These are just so cheap I went back for a third. This time I got Champs-Elysees, a deep, dark purple. I don't normally wear colors like that but then I watched a YouTube video in a which a guru used a very dark color and made it really wearable. I loved the way it looked, but didn't want to break the bank experimenting. Anyway, I personally would never wear this color full-on--too goth. However, patted on as a stain, on me it is a beautiful deep purply berry shade that looks great on its own or topped with a sheer gloss. I'm totally temped to buy still more colors.
Edit 3: So it seems Regent Street and Champs-Elysees have both been discontinued to make room for new colors. Thankfully, my beloved Ku'Damm--for my money, the prettiest color in the entire line--is still available. I have actually purchased two of the new colors: Copa-cabana and Walk of Fame. Copa-cabana is similar to Regent Street, a bit more orange. Walk of Fame is a watermelon-y color. Both are great spring/summer colors.
