I purchased this a while back and decided to (finally!) give it a review. I bought it because I had a $5 off $10 coupon and I needed to add some more $ to get my discount.

What it claims:
Lips take center stage! This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, crème
finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t
cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic
Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer
complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts
Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips.
I bought it because of its name, it looked like a dark warm-toned pink. It looks different and more beautiful on the lips. The packaging is pretty sturdy and I wouldn’t worry about it being in the purse. It is an (extremely!) full coverage semi-matte lipstick and lasts as long as it claims and sometimes even longer than 4 hours if you aren’t eating within that time frame. I love this and plan on getting more colors in the future! Overall I rate this product a 5 out of 5!!!! A truly great quality matte lipstick! I can’t believe the price!!
