the shade i picked up is "indulgence", which seems to suit the shade really well. it smells really familiar but i can't put my finger on what it reminds me of..maybe sweets of some kind? who knows! the packaging is quite simple and sleek, i wouldn't be ashamed to be caught with it in public.
i'd just like to clarify that the shininess in the second picture is because of a combination of flash and moisturiser, not some icky sweat or something haha.
application isn't bad, i wouldn't advise applying it without looking in the mirror though. it takes a couple of coats to get an all round even coverage and it's long lasting. to test it out yesterday, i put it on, spent half hour cooking (pasta with sausage sauce..yum), ate my food, then checked it and it was still going strong! obviously it wasn't perfect, but i think it held up pretty well.
all in all, i think i'd give it 4 out of 5. the only reason it wasn't a full 5 is because you have to look in a mirror to apply it. this is one of those lipsticks that makes you smile to yourself when you catch a glimpse of your lips :)
