Description and claims:
- Strong water-proof
- No transferring color.
- Vivid colors
- 12 hours lasting
- Fashionable colors
- High moisturizing natural oils keep lips wet inside.
Packaging: The packaging is really cute but it isn't practical. the applicator needs to be longer, it's really short and makes the application harder.
Fragrance: It has a sweet candy-like smell
Texture: It's sooooo smooth it feels as if you are applying butter on your lips, but after few seconds it dries out which is a really good thing imo. So if you wanna blend it out (for gradient lips for example) you need to be really quick. Also, it doesn't dry out your lips nor does it emphasize dry patches.
Color: I got Warm Peach, and it's a gorgeous vibrant pink peach color that makes your face look brighter. it's a personal favorite (It's close enough to the color in the hand swatch)
Pigmentation: It is really pigmented, one layer is highly enough, but if you wanna layer it, you better be quick about it otherwise you'll end up taking the product off once it's dry instead of layering it. also, don't smack your lips together before it dries otherwise you won't have an even application and it would dry out weirdly
Finish: it dries out into a velvety smooth finish (it kinda looks chalky sometimes if the application is messy or uneven). One thing I need to point out, make sure to spread it out with the tip of your fingers since the applicator doesn't apply the products evenly and once it's dry it leaves traces and applicator strikes, which isn't really pretty.
Long lasting ability: Once it's dry, it doesn't budge or smudge, it's kiss-proof it can last up to 8 hours if you don't eat nor drink anything, but after eating fatty food, it fades in the center (mainly the bottom lip in my case) but doesn't crack like other liquid lipsticks do. You can also find tiny pinkish flakes in your teeth if you have that bad habit of licking your lips. When you drink water, make sure not to touch your lips since it kinda dissolves the product and it becomes easy to smudge and transfer (so it might transfer to your cup etc)
Would I repurchase it? I don't really know. maybe if they make the applicator longer and the application more even so I won't have to stain my fingers in the process.
