Now I tell you, colours like this scare the crap out of me - I'm not a makeup artist or even a particularly graceful person and colouring within the (lip) lines is not my strong suit - they tend to end up all over my face- just remember I did this for you without skill or Photoshop so they look nothing like the pic above!

Muse - looks a little cakey on so I think I shouldn't have used as much product - love the colour though!
Icon - I absolutely adore the colour and I applied this one several times trying to make it look perfect but it was totally beyond me - so please don't mock me!

I love both of the colours and they had great staying power but as someone who is used to wearing gloss or regular lipstick that has some heft, I had a hard time with how light this product felt - it feels like you're wearing nothing at all so as a result I kept licking my lips trying to moisturize them which just make my lips feel drier! Next time I will add a layer of balm to the top, which may shorten the lifespan of the colour but will feel more comfortable for me!
