Advantages: Easy to apply, lasts well and suits me perfectly.
Disadvantages: Expensive (but I think it's worth it)
I love this lipstick...! I have been wearing the 797 Violet Spectral colour for over two years. The colour is a really classy red, strong without being garish. Don't get me wrong, I'm not afraid of strong colours; I wear proper screen-siren fire-engine red, and strong purples when I feel like it.
I am 38 years old, have dark brown hair and black eyebrows and eyelashes, and my skin-tone is pale with a very slight sallow hint. The colour is incredibly flattering on me and I always feel fabulous when I wear it. It works well both as a day and night lipstick. It gives a wonderful finish, smells lovely and leaves my lips soft and moisturised.
This lipstick glides on smoothly and easily - I often put it on in the car (at traffic lights) on my way to work. There is NO bleeding at the edges even after hours of wear. I never bother with lipliner, and as I don't wear foundation, there are some lipsticks I can't wear without having to tidy them up during the day. This is completely trouble-free.
I apply this lipstick in the morning, and re-apply after lunch. It lasts until the end of the day, through cups of tea and drinks from my bottle of water.
I read the previous review and can't believe we are talking about the same product. Yes, it leaves marks on cups and glasses, but it doesn't claim to be non-transfer, so I can't fault it for that. It certainly transfers no more than any of my other lipsticks, and a lot less than some.
If the previous reviewer still has the two her husband gave her, I'll take them - my current one is worn down to a stump and I want more...!
Summary: In the 797 Violet Spectral, it's one of my all-time favourite lipsticks.
