After visiting three stores, I was able to track the last of the limited edition lip colors! I had expected it to be more on the lavender side, but alas, it was not the case , and I was surprised at actual color, as there were shades very close to this already released this spring by Maybelline, so it seems redundant. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on somewhat evenly, but it could use improvement so that the application was smoother and less prone to streaking. It lasted for three hours on me and was a little hydrating, but the pearl shimmer added texture to it despite being subtle.
