Ok so i LOVED this color when i saw it but just like everyone else I was disappointed at how drying and cakey this lipstick went on. I decided that since I loved the color I would try to work with it. Here's how to make this lipstick work (at least for me): 1. use a lipscrub first (a sugar/vaseline scrub will do) 2. apply a few layers of sky pink (it will look cakey and sit in the lines of your lips- don't worry) 3. apply revlons lipgloss in pink pop over top. this works WONDERS over this lipstick and completely hides the lines/cakeyness. hope this works for you as well as it does for me!
