I love it but I have a few comments
I honestly LOVE the shade Lady Bug (a dark, blue-based berry red) and I am totally in love with the scent and feel UPON application. Creamy and slightly buildable. It's SUPER matte, compared to other more known local brands. No shine. At all angles of my pictures, it's truly matte, which I really, really love. However, there are some things that push me back from giving it 5 stars. First of all, its lasting power. IDK why but when I first used it and ate something, it comes off pretty easily, in contrast to reviews that swore by it that it would last more than 8 hours. I need to reapply every after meals, which is a bummer, actually. Though when I survived half a day without eating, it does last long. Ladies, it's also easy to remove using baby oil, which I think is sort of an advantage if you're a messy lipstick fan like me. Next is it just feels like lip scrub peeling off your lips once it starts drying out. I work in a fully-airconed office and the lipstick just dries up my lips pretty quickly. It feels odd whenever I pucker. It doesn't hurt but it's not that comfortable either. I mean, it kinda feels like an old sandpaper, especially if you try to rub your lips together. It could be my habit but the feel is just weird. I hoped this shade would be for my date soon but I guess I'd stick to a non-drying lip tint because I won't want my date wondering why I have really dry, "sandy" lips.

So yeah, the formula. I just hope the formula is less drying and more long-lasting. The shade is true to what is advertised so that's a big point to you, guys. ❤️
