Below is YSL in #8. As you can see, it looks horrible on my lips because of what it does to my lips. Luckily, if I do a lip scrub, treatment and have balm before I put it on, it looks gorgeous. but that takes a lot of maintenance!!! (lol!) When I'm on the go, sometimes I'll slab it on and be like HOLY HOT MESS! So know that if you are choosing lighter colors and you have lips like mine, you'll have to take a bit extra care of your lips before you apply!

#18 is a whole new story. I got it because it had a gorgeous vampy vibe, but then I realized how amazingly versatile it was and I was so darn excited! If you are wearing a nude color, you can dab this on for a beautiful rosy MLBB (my lips but better) color. If you just dab it on you have a gorgeous stained color, you can go a bit deeper for a nice cranberry color or go full force for a deep plumy wine color! The after effects of the lip product leave you with the amazing stain that lasts for hours!

Absolutely adore the versatility of this lip product. If you are going to try any of their line, I suggest going for the deeper colors! :D
