The lipsticks are very comparable to higher end lipsticks that I've tried, and are so much cheaper. They are only £8 a tube but they feel so much more expensive. The packaging isn't cheap plastic, but expensive feeling metal. The twisting mechanism is well done because it works for one (unlike ELF) and it doesn't feel like it's going to break. The colour is also nice and I don't feel stupid pulling it out on the tube and applying it. I'm all for bright pink packaging but it can make me feel like a kid sometimes.
The formula of these lipsticks is amazing. They aren't full of shimmer and sparkle which I adore. They glide on the lips really easily, and last a really long time. The darker colours last a little longer than the lighter colours but I find that true with almost any lipstick/lip product. They leave a nice natural finish on the lips that isn't to glossy or shiny or too matte. They describe it as "satin" and "velvet" which I suppose is true. They swatch beautifully, and are really pigmented. Even the lighter shades are nicely pigmented, and beat out a couple of light MAC shades I've tried.
