Truth be told when I bought this I was looking for more of a lip stain but I couldn't be happier with what I got. This is an amazing product just know that if you will likely be reapplying throughout the day, especially if your lips have a tendency to get dry. This applies like a dream. It's smooth and feels lovely on your lips. The color is great. I am not a huge fan of lipstick and lip gloss can be a pain this is my new go to lip product.
