My Thoughts

I was really excited to see how this wears and what I thought about it.  I was hoping for it to be amazing since it a vegan option.  The color was so nice and it just the right touch of red to flatter my complexion.  The formula was extra creamy and dried completely matte.  I was surprised that it wore very comfortably.  But as the hours passed by, around 3 hours, the lipstick began to crumble.  Whenever I would move my lips to talk or just make any movement, the formula was falling off my lips.  I simply rubbed my lips together to get it to crumble all off.  It was super odd.  It left a stain behind as well.  It was easily removed with makeup remover but it left my lips so dry.  I had to keep them super hydrated with a lip balm, which I slathered on.  The following morning my lips where severely chapped to the point where I had a brown ring around them.  You know when kids lick their lips and that wet area get dry and dark?  That’s how my lips looked!  It was awful and very painful.  This took about a week to heal and become normal again.  `I will not be recommending or purchasing this every again!
