My thoughts
I've got Cranberry Crush which is a beautiful berry shade and smells delicious. The pigmentation is so buildable – something that I love about it. A single swipe gives a gorgeous flush of color; multiple swipes mean more intensity!

Compared to the Revlon one, it’s definitely more hydrating. My lips feel hydrated and look shiny upon application however within an hour, the shine goes way and my lips don’t feel moisturized anymore. I am also quite disappointed with the longevity. It doesn’t last as long as my Revlon Balm Stain. The stain lasts for two hours on my lips. And that’s just it! Two hours – talk about long wearing lips stains!

I really like it but would’ve loved it so much more if it were long lasting on me.

You might like it if…
  • It feels hydrating on your lips
  • It smells delicious
  • The pigmentation is buildable
  • It doesn’t dry out your lips
You might not like it if…
  • You think it’s not long wearing

  5. I was curious to know how this shade would last! I expected it to last quite long since it's a deeper shade. The lighter Candied Coral lasts incredibly long on me! Wish it lasted long for you too!
