I have been eyeing this product for such a long time, but couldn't justify the high price, but when I found an old gift card that still had 20 bucks on it, I took it as an opportunity to snatch one of these babies up!
I love the packaging of the product. It's sleek, luxurious and sturdy ... and you do not need to deal with covers of lipsticks falling off! This is such an awesome, unique lipstick where you have to push the little square button thingy, and as you push down, the lipstick lid opens and pushes the lipstick up! So cool!
The product itself is just as amazing as the packaging.
Color: I opted to pick a color I would use every day. This is a great "lips but better" color and is more for the fall time. Its kind of a nice, rosy nude color.
Formula: The formula is said to be long lasting, which it is! I actually bought this in between my teaching exams and I tried the product on in Sephora. I then... took a 4 hour test. I finished in 3, but after the three hours, which included biting my nails and being all nervous, it lost some glossiness, but was still on my lips!
Moisturizing Factor: It is also extremely moisturizing, which I was surprised. Usually even the most moisturizing lipsticks leave my lips really dry after the lipstick wears off, but this one made my lips feel plump (not like big plump, but plumped from moisturization) and hydrated.
Packaging: I find the packaging freaking AWESOME!!!! I love that you don't have to deal with a cover or really with the product getting smushed or all over ur packaging. It's a fairly sturdy case and the little lever part is very good, so it won't open up in your bag. The one downside, I'm not sure if it's the packaging or what not, but i find that I have to open the product all the way up in order to use it because if I were to put lipstick on my upper lip, sometimes the lipstick that was already put on my lower lid gets on the case :( (chubbyy lipssss)

Pros: AMAZING product with a long lasting lipstick. It's hydrating and fantastic and the packaging is awesome! I cannot say enough good things about this!!!
Cons: If you don't wanna fork up the $35 dollars. If you got fat lips like I do and put on lipstick on an angle, you may be getting lipstick all over the packaging!
