I bought this earlier this week as my lips were feeling incredibly dry and Miss London had taken my Malin & Goetz lip balm away to Ma's.
It does feel very comfy and moisturising on the lips.
The colours are lovely, and I like this one (a rosy dark beige) a lot.
At £19.50, this is pretty reasonable for a high end Japanese lipstick. It's a lot less expensive than the Chantecaille Lip Chic I pictured earlier this week at £26.50.
The tube is quite handy, in that the clear lid lets you see the colour inside easily; useful if you have a few as you can find the lipstick you are looking for quickly.
It's a little more sparkly than I personally like. The sparkle is muted in this photo - in real life the sparkle particles are more apparent.
The formula is very soft; used consistently a tube would not last very long.
As expected with this kind of formulation, it isn't very long-lasting. The Chantecaille Lip Chic does have much better longevity, and I also find the Suqqu Blend lipsticks last a bit better too.
I bought this from the Shu Uemura shop in Covent Garden; it's also available online at www.beautyexpert.co.uk.
