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.

Lipstick Over $50
“It wears beautifully and is very comfortable on the lips. I would not lay $50 for a lipstick, which is why I did not give it 5 stars”
90s Brown Lipstick
“Lustrous texture, beautiful matte finish. Reminds me of nineties lip trends. Looks GORGEOUS! Will definitely buy in more colors”
Orange Undertone Lipstick
“FYI: * The shade Mortal Flame is described as a "fiery red" - it looks like an orange-based red in the tube but on my naturally pigmented lips, it comes across more of a deep red, with less of the orange undertones coming through * Smells delicious - has a sweet (but not overly sweet) scent * The staying power is good, even through a meal, though some color does come off”
Maroon Lipstick
“I like the lipstick. The color went on more maroon than mauve for me, I wish it would’ve been more purple”
Scented Lipstick
“Overall, super pretty and comfortable to wear. Cons: Scented (the typical MAC vanilla scent, which may put some people off), the applicator is a little strange (it's supposed to contour to the shape of your lip) and feels weak, but the benefits far outweigh the cons”
Brown Red Lipstick
“I purchased cherry and it’s a cute pop of pinky red. Then I bought clay and breeze. Clay is a light reddish brown”
Vintage Lipsticks
“This formula is so unique to me and exactly what I've been dreaming of - it's thick and gives a kind of painted look to the lips reminiscent of old hollywood stars. As a lover of vintage fashion and makeup this is a new staple”

Light Red Lipstick
“I got this from Influenster which was great because I have been meaning to try this brand. I like lipsticks and I tend to use darker colors. These colors are great and it easily goes on and stays on for a long time”
