Let me first start out by saying I love these lipstains. I was immediately attracted to them on the shelf because of the colour range. Next I flipped it over because I love reading the names they come up with. I was excited they themed them off of Countries and Cities. Being a city girl and all I instantly fell in love. Now down to the nitty gritty, the colours hold true to the package colour. The only one I found that didn't was NEW YORK SCENE I thought it would be a bit darker. They lasted from 9:00am - 6:00pm for me, I ate a small lunch in between and the colour lived through it. They are not sticky at all, more creamy and glide on easily. Great by for a drugstore product! here are my swatches done in 2 coats.
