Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I love that it's in a pencil form. It's easy to maneuver or at least for me. I think it's especially important to maneuver with this lip color. It's bright and it also leaves a stain. You definitely don't want to stain outside of your lips. Trust me I accidentally did and it wasn't a pretty sight. :X I had to rub a lot with tissue, as well as, put powder over my mistake. Secondly, I did not even notice until now but it smells like vanilla coffee. While you're applying the lip color on your lips, you will not notice the scent or at least I did not. I just noticed the scent because I just sniffed it out of curiosity. Now for the most important thing, the color is bright red and it's the perfect red color you can imagine. It's really gorgeous and I can see a lot of people pull it off. Unfortunately, I don't think I am one of them. Even though I cannot pull of the red, you can lighten the color to fit to your taste. It's very pigmented, long lasting, and does not dry out your lips. Since I have dry lips, most products tend to dry them out. For that reason, I tend to look for lip balms or moisturizing lipsticks. This product did not dry out my lips and it lasted until I ate a meal. It didn't completely take the lip color off. It left a pretty stain on my lips even after eating.
