Good red color but...
it kisses off like crazy. Gave my hubby a couple smooches and it really made him look like I'd beat the crap out of him. It sort of looked like 7th grade style hickeys. lol I do LOVE this color and it's one of the first reds I've found that suited my skin color. Not sure I would purchase again though but it's ok.
Burn is a gorgeous, cinnamon-y red with lovely golden shimmer. One swipe is enough to last all day (six hours, plus 3 hours of staining). It's a sexy, confident, alluring shade that just screams self-assurance!
However, there's trouble in paradise. This shade is so, SO drying. It has that clingy feeling on the lips one usually associates with mattes. While the product is on, it's tolerable, but it generally devolves until your lips are crying for balm after the stain wears off (mine were chapped and flaking off after nine hours of wear).
The packaging is very nice for drugstore, and while there is a candyish scent, I find it enjoyable. The shade is stunning and the wear is impeccable. If only this didn't feel like such a nightmare after all-day wear! I really want to love it, but the lack of moisture is a huge drawback. Lip balm is mandatory to pair with this.

I'm a sucker for a great lip color. Siren was exactly what I was looking for! After losing my favorite pink lipstick last spring, I'd been searching for a replacement ever since. 415 Siren is the perfect shade, and this is the perfect lipstick! It lasts perfectly when used with liner (I used Cover Girl lip perfection in 235 Splendid) and it feels almost more like a thick balm than some lipsticks I've come across that just felt thick and sticky. It's the perfect color, feels amazing, and is easy to touch up. If you don't own this yet, go buy it now!
Good color but not great texture
I actually love how the color comes out. It doesn't look so in the picture, but it is actually a bright pink color. I'm pretty much addicted to wearing it. The one problem I really have with it is the texture of it once it is on your lips. It dries your lips out so you have to end up using lip balm as well as the lipstick. It also tends to clump in spots on your lips and dry out really quick. Using lip balm with it helps that as well. But other than that, I love the color and I think it is decent for the amount it costs.
Good start for lipstick!
I could never manage or handle wearing lipsticks. I always would bite, lick, rub, or bump my lips and make a mess EVERYWHERE. I've since been trying more and more to wear lipstick, it just seems normal since I wear everything else, and I picked up one of these after hearing about how good they are.
The one I bought glides on nice and smoothly when I need to apply from the tube, otherwise I prefer using a lip brush. It dries down pretty quickly, I don't use a lip liner, but I don't seem to have any feathering or settling into lines with these!
They do need to be re-applied every few hours, or after eating for sure, but that's true of most lipsticks. It doesn't feel heavy or greasy on my lips. A little drying, but nothing a lip scrub and some chapstick doesn't fix at the end of the day!
