I received the colour Believer - 40 and although it appears to suit women with lighter skin, i was pleasantly surprised when i applied the first layer, it appears darker than it looks on the applicator. Maybe because i have darker skin.
The lipstick packaging is plastic and the the colour of the packaging is solid. I wondered if the actual colour will be the same. It appears like an expensive high end product for a brand that makes reasonably priced products. The applicator had an eye shaped end and a gap in the center which picks up more product when you dip it into the container.
I applied the first layer the appeared to carry and therefore transfer enough product to cover my entire lips, however they were places on the lip that the product appeared very thin and sheer. I proceeded to apply another layer. On the second layer the product is thick and takes a while to dry up. When dry it is transfer proof and lasts a good 8 hours. I landed up eating an oily meal and it appeared to break down after that.
On the darker skin the colour appears a deep purple, you do not feel like your lips are dry at all. It feels like you are wearing nothing. A great buy, for the product it is a good price because it is a good quality product and I am happy to pay more. Will recommend this to friends and family.
