The packaging is really beautiful and different from their regular one. The bullet is in silver color with the plastic cap in similar shade as the lipstick. As it is sheer and shine range so you can expect it be having sheer pigmentation. However it is not very sheer with two to three coats you can get a good color pay off. It has similar caramel scent like their lip gloss which is quite noticeable but is not bad.
The shade I feel pretty is medium berry shade which leans more towards pink then purple. It is a beautiful shade which will equally compliment every skin tone. You can wear it as just tinted lip balm with one swipe or build it to little more intense then sheer. The texture is creamy which applies smoothly. It is not greasy or oily and doesn't feel heavy on lips but it is moisturizing and hydrate the lips as long as it stays. It applies evenly and doesn't set into lip lines.
The lasting power is no more then 2 hours but being sheer i do not mind it carrying around and applying when ever i need and as in current weather lips tend to dry quickly so instead of applying balm i love to wear it.
Overall i really like this lipstick for its creamy formula and it keeps the lips moisturized while giving a beautiful color.
