I have this in one color, Power Petal, a cool mauve/pink/nude. It's more mauve and pink than nude in the tube, and swatched on one's hand, but depending on one's natural lip color, it could look like a true nude. My lips are more pink and cooler-toned, so this looks like a slightly rosier version of my makeup-free lips.

The formula is velvety and glides on with ease, if one's lips are already smooth and not dried out. It's got a lot of pigment and I think the powdery look it imparts makes the lips look slightly fuller. There's a faint scent, and no flavor. Staying power is pretty good, especially since it's on the lighter end of the spectrum, so fading looks more natural and less obvious (at least if it's closer to one's natural lip color). Building up the color may make it look more crumbly so I'd advise touch-up on more bare lips.

The packaging is pretty, too. It's that longtime L'Oreal square lip casing, but with a more taupe colored case and a velvety exterior to match/indicate the contents' application. If you like a matte lip look and prefer a dryer -- but not necessarily drying -- formula, this may be just the thing. If you prefer a moister lip look or feel, this may be a pass.

With a sale and further exploration of the shade range, however, I may end up picking up another color. Personally it satisfies that 1990s nostalgia for matte lipsticks without the (personal) discomfort and (personal) distaste I have for liquid matte lipstick formulas.
