I found the shade “Rose on and on” to be surprisingly beautiful and while it’s still quite a tame shade from the collection, it was not at all boring. However, photographing the colour was a different story, the colour swatches quite different on my hand than it does on my lips as you’ll see from my photos below.

Can you tell I am head over heels about this? It’s been a very long time since I’ve been thoroughly impressed by a new product innovation, not just a new colour or new packaging but a whole new formulation that’s sure to be game changer in this highly competitive market. If you’ve never been a gloss lover in the past, this might be the right time to give it another shot. For those with dry lips this will mask those pesky lines, colour lovers will adore the versatile wear and those forever debating between lipstick vs lip gloss can finally call it a truce.
