I wore this lipstick for a costume party I went to, it was given to me by a friend who accidentally purchased the wrong color. It was totally something I was lucky to get, because now I wear it all the time. It has very smooth color, very vibrant, and it stays. Most lipsticks I try tend to smear off or come off on everything (cigarettes, cups, etc) but with a good top layer (chapstick or something), Clarins lasts for quite a while. I've got plenty of compliments on my luscious lips since wearing it, it looks very 'natural' for an unnatural color. Almost like a lip stain. The biggest complaint I have with it is the price. This tube I got as a gift, so it was no problem at all. But I'm dreading the day when it runs out and I have to buy more. My budget doesn't really allot for expensive lipsticks, especially when I never even wore it before getting this product. But while it's around, I'm definitely enjoying it.
