I was able to try a free sample of this lipstick in an almost shimmery/neutral color and I have loved it ever since. I couldn't help but purchase three other lipsticks in different colors. It goes on so smoothly and doesn't ever appear to be dry or cracking like some other lipsticks do after an hour. It did not make my lips break out or dry out either. One thing that I don't like about this lipstick is that it tends to come off on drinking glasses, straws, etc. Not too much but just enough to be noticeable. This lipstick is great for the price and Mary Kay is so good about giving deals most of the time. I have even won this lipstick at a party. There are so many colors to choose from that it makes finding the perfect shade so easy! I have a really fair complexion and the ruby red just looks and feels amazing on my lips. The other thing about this lipstick that I love is that it really makes my lips pop even though they are thinner than most. Would definitely recommend this lipstick!
