The lipstick is housed in a GORGEOUS lace designed cap. The cap is shorter on one side than the other which gives it an even more organic lace feel to it. The lipstick is smooth and easy to glide on. The lipstick looks great in the beginning but after 4 to 5 hours of wear, you can see the color fading away and quite unevenly at that. Shade 21 looks more natural with lighter skin as now that its summer and my color has darkened quite some bit the color looks a bit to pink to be natural. Recommend for anyone who is also a sucker for cute girly packaging that might not mind a bit of maintenance with their lip color.
