I really like this lip cream. I often keep it in my bag for days when I haven't committed to wearing a lipstick but still want a little flash of colour. The formula is so creamy, it's almost like a lip balm, but the colour is rich and the matt finish is great. It doesn't last for ages, but it also doesn't leave any residue around the edges of your lips which I really like because regular lipsticks have a tendency to do that on my lips. It can really end up looking awful if you forget to top up your colour and you are left with those harsh lines on the outside of your lips. I've never had that problem with this lip cream though, the colour just fades away evenly and goes on evenly again once you reapply it. Oh, and it has a nice smell too, but not so overpowering that it will effect the taste of your food (I also HATE that) A good lip product all in all!
