This is a gorgeous color. The color is just enough pink without being too much like a hot pink and there is a little shimmer to the color. The texture is creamy and smooth which helps it glide on easily. And the lipstick does not have a funny after taste to it which is a huge plus. The lipstick does seem to come off quicker than I would like. I would prefer a color that stains the lip a bit even after the lipstick has come off.
