I have this product in #4, “Soft Spoken, which I would describe as a deep, yet soft, burnt rose. It's a sophisticated, but not stodgy color that works well for both day and night. As with most NYX products, you get a lot of bang for your buck here. The tube is large (but still fits in a makeup bag or small purse) and the product, while in said tube, doesn't dry out. Once applied, that may be a slightly different story, if you have very dry lips like I do. While i don't find it as drying as many lipsticks, it's still not moisturizing enough to look and feel good on me for more than a few hours. Then it starts to become patchy and flake, causing me to reach for my balm and wipe the remnants away. I do applaud the wet formula for not being too goopy. It dries semi-matte, with medium pigmentation. Props also go to the sturdy, angled applicator, which picks up the perfect amount of product and is uncannily easy to use. Bottom line, if you don't have true troubles keeping your lips moisturized, this is an affordable option worth trying.
