I received the magnolia sample in the November box. I had to buy it, it is so gorgeous & the pigment is so rich. I love the square shape of the lipstick for precise application. It feels so luxurious that I can't wait to try other shades.
The product itself was nice and didn't dry out my lips, I just did not like the color sample I received in my Birchbox. My flesh tone on my lips is strange that certain colors change on me and this changed to an "80s hot pink" that I do not like. I've struggled my whole life to find a perfect red too.
Love this sample. Glides on smoothly, highly pigmented, great color, nice finish. would consider buying full size
It's a good cream lipstick if that's what you're looking for... For me, it didn't stick well enough.
It is hard for me to say if I like it or not. I don't like the color, but seems smooth.
