I purchased this product at the same time as the Petite Fleurs concealer, and they both have the same issue with packaging-the tops don't stay on and the bullets fall out the bottom. This is my chief reason for the poor review. I had only carried in my makeup bag a few times when I opened it up at a stoplight one day and got product all over my fingers as I fished for the lipstick! It was also all over the inside of my bag and other items, and the tips of two of the bullets (the one at the top and one which had dropped out of the bottom of the tube) were smashed. It was brand new, and I had already lost a lot of product from being beaten up, rolling around in the bag! As there is very little product to begin with this was a real bummer. As for the product itself, each of the different shades performs differently. I bought the coral shades, which has one deep coral shade (creamy), a similar shimmer coral, and a pale pink shimmer. I use the creamy one the most, because the shimmer ones settle into lip creases and don't have good color laydown. You can put the shimmer on top of the creamy shade to add more pop (or a different lipstick), but I don't use them on their own. However, the issue with the packaging keeps me from carrying it in my purse, which is the whole point, right? Having lip options in one package to keep from carrying a bunch of tubes? (Also, like the concealer Petite Fleurs, the gold color on the tube is rubbed off after just a few weeks.) One plus: the lipstick has an unusual, old-fashioned aroma. Smells like a lipstick my grandma might wear. Like a vintage lipstick.
