I have never tried one of these type of lipsticks , but im so thankful i gave it a chance. Its healthly for ur lips, so why not. I was actually looking for a cleanser when i stumpled over this amazing lipstick. :) This is also great for my pale skin and dark hair color. It also has sun tan protection, so i can know that they are awesome for keeping my lips healthy. The color also** **is a beautiful color that im sure will look incredible on anybody. I love pink lipsticks, but i dnt look good since i dyed my hair frm blonde to brown! Amazing look but it chaned how i had to do my makeup tones. But this one is perfect for me.This lipstick** **goes on your lips perfectly and is like matte, so it looks natural. It compares with a MAC product. Im big on DIOR,MAC,ETC. but sephora brands, and health store brands might be a very close second. i know that this one is one i well definalely be looking at once again in the near future.
