CSB is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, which wasn't too buildable from there. The texture was smooth, creamy without being heavy nor was it too thin. It applied evenly with slight color pulling into my lip lines over time. The color stayed on well for five hours and was non-drying.

The pigment load is insane! Just one swipe provides an unbelievable laydown of color. Every shade applies smoothly (without dragging or skipping), hugs lips, and feels amazing!

Yummy butter blend comforts, hydrates and enhances, leaving lips soft and conditioned, never dry. Aloe vera, jojoba, avocado and abassu oils nourish and soften lips.
