Thoughts: When it comes to ombre lips, I think of Korea or the chola years. It's still not that popular in the US unless you work in the makeup industry. The only reason I bought this is because I could use it as a normal lip product. I can either use the lip liner as a full lip color, lipstick, or even mix both as one color.
Now for how it looks on me...
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and there's still no scent. Secondly, the packaging is simple. I love that they're both retractable. You don't need to sharpen, as well as, the color of the packaging matches the color of the lip product. Not exactly matches, but close enough. The lip liner side will always be darker than the lipstick side. I find that interesting because it's more a chola style than Korean. Koreans have paler outside and darker/brighter close to the mouth. Third, the consistency is extremely creamy. Both the lip liner and lipstick glides on the lips. There's no tugging and it's opaque. I'm pretty impressed especially with the lip liner. Most lip liners are rougher which makes smudging harder. You won't have that issue with this product! Fourth, it did not dry out my lips. I have really dry lips that anything will dry it like crazy. When lip products don't dry my lips, that's a good sign. Lastly, it lasted until I ate/drank.
* Comes in a variety of colors.
* Simple packaging.
* Packaging closely matches the color of the lip product.
* No scent.
* Consistency is creamy.
* Does not tug on the lips; glides on.
* Easy to mix the colors.
* Does not dry out the lips.
* Lasted until I ate/drank.
* Set color mixtures, lip liner and lipstick.
Would repurchase: Yes.
