This was a splurge, but the color was a perfect deep neutral winter shade for me. Nicely pigmented to allow a thin layer of product, making it comfortable to wear (for a mega matte finish!). Seems pretty transfer proof thus far (purchased yesterday) and faded evenly. No scent. Hasn't made my lips peel after wearing for hours (an issue I have with many lip products). Looks good deepened with MAC Half Red lip pencil for a little added drama. Only real drawback is the price (for the amount of product received).
