Of course it's easy to put a lip colour on and have look all nice and pretty for a picture that you take 10 minutes later but I wondered if it could live up to all of it's promises so I decided to take these swatch pictures after it had actually been on my lips for the day.
This one got more of a workout then the first one did so it didn't stay quite as glossy and you can see a bit of the colour on my bottom lip has disappeared but it did make it through the gym, shopping and a greasy lunch without any touchups!
Overall I am very impressed with how well they both wore - if you like the idea of a lip colour that will last but don't like how drying many of the all-day wear types are, you will want to check this one out!
