I can not say I would not recommend this lipstick, but I can not say I really want to recommend it either. Not all colors are created equal. Some are good, some are really bad. If you google the swatches and reviews, be careful, there are tons of sponsored opinions which are truly pushing the product line without reflecting the true characters of this product.
My first purchase was #330 Divine, I absolutely love it. The color is bold, right, opaque, creamy. It goes on smooth, dose not settle into lips' natural texture. Only draw back, or maybe to somebody it's a good point, it stains lips badly. After wiping the lipstick off with makeup remover, your lips still look very pink. My second purchase is #400 Temptress, hated it all the way. First, it settles and feathers all over my lips. It patches horribly. You might say that I need to have my lips prepped better. Well, my lips are well hydrated and exfoliated. A Wet'N Wild 97 cents lipstick can do better job than this. I have to admit, I don't have a pair of small lips, but this color is just horrible in quality. My third one is #285 Temptation. It's a combination of hate and love. The color is a shiny orange, quite good looking on my skin tone, especially if I go for a coppery summer glow look. The metallic speckles in this color is quite large compare to other brand metallic lipsticks. It goes on the lip good, after a while, the metallic starts to move around your lip and eventually settle in the natural lines. You can try use with lip primer, but I did not. Not liking the chemical ingredients in lip primers. My forth purchase is #365 Enchantress. It's a lovely color, frosty, kind of reminds me of 80's style. I've been looking for a lipstick this color. I used to use a double colored NY City lipstick to mix to create this color, now one swipe can do it. However, this color has both the cons I've mentioned above: 1st the metallic speckles are so large, they move around, 2nd it stains lips.
Like lots of girls, I have a tons of lipsticks from under $1 to more than $50 high end. I choose my lipstick carefully, but I have never purchased one brand and have these many fails. I did my internet search before purchasing, all those girls who swatched the lipsticks and bribed about it did not give me enough info on the cons. I will definitely keep the #330 Divine, other colors I am not sure about because I can easily find similar color from other brands with much better results.
