I think the packaging on this is adorable. It's sleek and I love how their packaging corresponds with the item. I have this in 2023 and it looks great on my lighter warm toned skin. I have really dry lips and this product not only makes them feel less chapped, but it also hides the dryness. It is so smooth when you put it on. I have had problems with it coming off when I eat, but I expect that. It has a normal wear time of a few hours depending on your activities. For the price I really enjoy this line of lipsticks because they offer a HUGE variety of shades, shimmers, and textures.

I got this in #11 and it's a great color but the smell makes me sick. Smells like chemical and plastic gone wrong. If you are at all sensitive to smells, do not purchase this. I will not be repurchasing. I will be returning.

I loved the way this lipstick looked and applied to my lips. I bought the shade #12 Guest List for somewhat of a "my lips but better" look. It glides on smoothly and is well pigmented. But it smells like berries, plastic, and chemicals. I didn't notice the smell when I tried it on at Sephora because I had just finished abusing my sense of smell taking whiffs of perfume. I used it a few days later for the first time and the smell gave me a headache. It didn't taste very good either. Eventually, like an hour later, the smell went away though. Decent product that would be perfect if it wasn't for the smell and taste. I'll continue using this but will not repurchase.

Lightweight, goes on very smooth. I rather like the almost fruity smell, which is not very noticeable unless you're sniffing straight from the tube. Not long-wearing, but it's not a hassle to re-apply as it goes on like lip balm in that I don't feel the need for a mirror to make sure it's even.
I purchased #12 "Guest List" which is a shimmer. Sephora describes the shade as "toasted almond" which is inaccurate - it's more of a pinkish taupe color.

I LOVE how these look. My lips are pigmented and these show up perfectly! You can see the color but it doesn't look clownish. It applies very smoothly and looks better than any lipstick I have ever tried.
Unfortunately, these bad boys STINK and taste GROSS. I can't imagine kissing a SO with these, they would probably think you have halitosis or something, it's that bad. Im not even that sensitive to taste and smell but these gross me out way too much to wear.

I looked at these a few times before deciding to buy one. There are so many shades to choose from, some with and without shimmer. I bought one with shimmer (you cannot feel it) called Strike A Pose, number 23.
I think it was described as a vivid rose with iridescent shimmer. Some of the shimmers are interesting because it's a unique sparkle in the base color. I think Hot Spot is a bright orange pink with almost magenta shimmer. When you turn that one in the light it seems to change. These are the same price as all Sephora lipsticks at $12, and still made in France. The lipstick is very glossy, and just testing these on the back of your hand you can see how smooth they are. They're like a gel/gloss formula. It goes on very glossy and gradually fades, but color is left behind on your lips. So these are longer lasting than most glossy lipsticks. I'm going to buy a few more.
From the website: The glossy shades include clear pigments and carnauba wax for a dazzling, wet-lip look. The shimmering and metallic formulas contain 3D shimmering particles and shea butter for extreme radiance.
I have a shimmer shade and can definitely say it is smooth and moisturizing. Be aware that these could melt in the summer heat, so make sure they're in air conditioning. The scent is fruity like grapes or some sort of berry, but they don't smell bad.
