I tested it out yesterday. The shade is a bit darker than i was hoping. However, i do love this lipstick. It's light. It's durable. and it's a very bold color on my lips. I wore it for 9 hours, from approximately 11am to 8:30pm. In that time i had eaten a meatball sub with a fork and knife, and a pizza (at 8pm) without any attempt to save the lipstick. This lipstick did wear a little bit on the pizza, but it was barely noticable on my lips. It did not wear at all when drinking from soda 1L bottles at any point in the day. If you're looking for a lipstick that'll survive your love for food, is easy to put on, comfortable to wear, and looks fantastic, then this is the one for you.
