In a word, unwearable. Which is unfortunate because I am so in love with this color. I'm no stranger to matte lipsticks. I'm aware that they are often drying. But many mattes actually do wear well and don't leave my lips looking like a hot desert mess. Not this one. It settles into every single line, and makes my lips look dry and cracked. And the caking. Dear God the caking. I have never worn a lipstick that looks so incredibly cakey. I've tried layering it with moisturizing lip products, hoping that I can somehow subvert the terrible formula of this product through some kind of magical lipstick alchemy, but to know avail. There is just no way to make this lipstick look even remotely decent on me. I should probably just throw it away, but part of me is still clinging to the hope that I might be able to figure out how to make this lipstick work for me one day. An impossible dream? Only time will tell.
