First I will list the 2 "cons" I found in this product. I found that the texture and feel of this lip stain & gloss is a bit sticky. The 2nd con is that, after a few hours, the stain remained more on the outer borders of lips but disappeared to nothing near the inside of the lips. I would have expected the "stain" to last longer. The pros are several: even though it has a sticky feeling, it does not have a drying effect on the lips, as some other stains do.
Also, it is a convenient tube that contains both stain & gloss in one AND you could wear one without the other or one with a totally different color or brand. I have not experienced any feathering or flaking off of the color or the product. And last but not last, the colors are beautiful and give a moisturized look to the lips. I look forward to try other colors.
