What I love about this from the beginning is that it is made with natural and organic ingredients! It also is vegan and cruelty free which also makes me happy! I was worried that, with all of the good ingredients, it may not be as good as the chemically made lipsticks...but I was wrong! It smelled like vanilla (which is because it has real vanilla extract in it) which I loved. It wasn't overpowering, but sometimes organic products have a weird scent to it, so I was happy this company addressed that by adding the vanilla extract.
The company has 6 colors that have some cream colors, various pink colors, and a vivid red as well. The color I chose was one of the pink lipsticks. It was called "Cherry Plum." The name is kind of misleading because you would think it would be a red color with purple tones, but it was more of a medium-to-dark pink color. The lipstick I received look just like the color in the product image. As noted in the product image, it does have some shine/sparkle to it. Usually I prefer matte lipsticks, but I was fine by the shine on this.
When I applied it, it went on SOOOO smooth. I loved how it felt on my lips. As for color, it added some color to my lips but not much. I have really light colored lips, so it made them look darker and uniform (while looking natural with a bit of shine). I liked that it wasn't super dramatic, but I was expecting more color than what I saw. However, I'm sure if I chose a color that was more different than my lip color, I would notice more of an effect (so it's my bad rather than the lipsticks). It did come off when I ate a snack, so you will have to reapply throughout the day. However, I do think it is a diverse color that you could wear to work or for a fancier event (due to the shimmer). It comes with a cute draw-string bag too! I am pleased overall that this worked so well for having natural and organic products!
