dont you just love it when your matte lipstick is so pigmented, brightens up you face and doesn't leave your lips dry and flaky? this product could be a contender to highly priced matte lippies out there! it has a felt tip that allows you to spread the cream lipstick all over your lips for an even application. what's more, youcan build up the color, one layer to give u that subtle look, while multiple layers gives you a more intense look. however i think etude house needs to name the product to identify the shade versus just putting numbers. the twist cap also tend to losen up inside your bag which might make your lippie scatter all over your makeup bag, regardless, i still love it, especially the deep red (maroonish) shade.
