To be honest, the packaging does not scream buy me – it’s something which would definitely not catch my eye in shops.  Rustic copper shades are normally reserved for my nails and not my lips, so again, it would not feature on my wishlist.  However (and this is a big however), I was pleasantly surprised at how good this shade looks on my lips and against my skin tone.  The formulation is good being scentless and tasteless.  The applicator is of the doe foot variety and the gloss glides on and is not crazy sticky.  It’s a grower!  I am definitely growing to like it more and more.

Are you a copper lips kinda gal?

    I think that colour looks really pretty on your lips. It gives a nice shimmer without being too overboard.
