(sorry for the lighting/my face!)

Ever since I saw Vivianna raving about this, I knew I had to pick it up, as she always has great recommendations. After trying it out for the past few weeks, it's safe to say i'm thoroughly impressed.
First, lets chat about my favourite bit of any product- the packaging. I really love this packaging, it's simple, sleek, and stylish. It's also really easy to just slip into a handbag, and the bright colour means it's easily visible. (I'm always losing my lipsticks in my bag if they have dark packaging!) The packaging gets a huge thumbs up from me!
The formula of this product is quite creamy, and wet, but it dries completely matte. What I do is put a layer on my lips, blot it off, and then apply another layer, and within a couple of minutes it's completely dry, with only the tiniest transfer. It's really pigmented, and it lasts for ages. I went out for a meal, and I didn't need to top it up once. These also do not dry out my lips at all. The longest i've had it on is around 5 hours, and even towards the end of the night, my lips felt fine, which is a huge plus!
One downside is that they aren't the easiest to apply, because they are, well, liquid. Definitely take your time applying these, or they will look awful!
They have a nice selection of colours, and I chose "Frambourjois", which on hindsight, I maybe shouldn't have gone for. I never wear pinks, and I wanted to try something different, but i'm s till not sure it suits me? (As you can see from the photo above)
These retail in the UK for £8.99 (get it here) and i'll definitely be checking out more colours in this range!
Have any of you tried out these? What did you make of hem? Let me know!
