I didn't expect to like this lipstick so much when I decided to get it. It's creamy and went on easily and evenly. I did put a lip balm (Maybelline Baby Lips peppermint) underneath, as I always do. However, the balm doesn't sheer it out by much. I just really love how creamy and comfortable this wears. It's probably my first favorite out of the Vivids line. I would purchase again!
