Description from the package: The Pro Sculpting range takes contouring to the next level with easy Pro tools and techniques to shape your entire face with lights and shadows. Pro Sculpting Lip is specifically designed to contour and sculpt lips using 2 easy steps.
Step 1: Use stick to cover lips with a full-color semi-matte finish.
Step 2: Use shimmer-tip sponge to add a touch of light to the center of lips for volume effect. Blend in a circular motion at the center of lips.
Note: to intensify volumizing effect reload sponge applicator into its cap. After each use, wipe sponge-tip with tissue before closing.
Thoughts: When I first received this product, I wasn't too sure what to think. I feel that it's huge in Asia especially Korea with gradient lips. Honestly, it's not huge here in the US or at least where I live.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no scent whatsoever with both color and highlighter. Also, I found the packaging slightly interesting. There's nothing unique about having two ends on a lip product. The part I find slighting different is that the way you open each side. You pull open and close the color side. The highlighter side you have to twist to open and close. Secondly, the consistency of the color is creamy and goes on smoothly. It also doesn't tug on the lips and it's opaque. For the highlighter side, it's also easy to apply. You just dip the sponge tip applicator in the container with the pigment and then apply where you want too. With that said, the sponge tip applicator is soft and comes with a pointy tip. It makes it easy to apply a small amount to a lot on the lips. It's recommended to clean the applicator before you put it back in the container. If you are like me, that's an extra step you just don't need. I did notice the applicator changed color with usage, as well as, affected the highlighter. It's not white as before. It's more light pink. Third, the color is gorgeous and it's great all year round. I did notice the color lighten when I used the highlighter on the center of the lips. With that said, I don't think gradient lips are in where I live. Even though gradient lips aren't in, it isn't that noticeable with this lip color combination. I'm not too sure about the other color combinations in this line. Lastly, it lasted until I ate/drank. It did not fade and dry out my lips.
