i bought mine from nordstrom but i returned it. it smells like strong rose perfume (like loreal lipsticks). i was expecting a glossy sheer lipstick but it doesnt really have much shine. the color was pretty but a little light for me. the smell was too unbearable. i prefer the chanel ones better. not worth the $40...It has way longer lasting power than other lipsticks on the market with similar claims/formulas.

“swatches top to bottom): b101, b02, b03 mahogany, p157, r28 this lipstick is glides on the lips smoothly, especially for a matte lipstick. it is extremely light-weight and feels like nothing on the lips. the shade range and packaging is beautiful. they are also very pigmented. however, the only reason i have this 4 starts instead of 5 is because i think $50 is very pricey for one lipstick”
