I had to have one and chose one on-line in the colour 9, Rouge Laque, a true bright red shade.
The lady at the make up counted had given me advice to apply the first layer this product with a lip brush, as this will stain your skin around your mouth if you mess it up. Once you have put the foundation layer you can use the provided applicator to top up.

The formula of this gloss on first application is runny, but after a few seconds on the lips and when blended in it turns to a thicker consistency. This takes a little getting used to but i really did find using a lip brush to help in the first stage.
|First Layer **|
The first layer provides a very light coverage and the texture feels thick but not sticky.
|Second Layer **|
The second layer provides the glossiness and gives a much more opaque finish. I will use a lip brush again for this layer at home but top up using the applicator when out which is actually pretty good, just not very precise for the 'stain layer' in my opinion.
This product is very long lasting and looks fabulous. It does make me nervous that it stains however the consistency is so great it does not really budge. It survives drinking and eating with little need for a top up for at least an hour or two whilst retaining the glossy finish.
I love this product and will consider buying the gorgeous coral colour i first spotted in Blackpool, at £22.50 they are not cheap but as a special treat they would be a great addition to any make up addicts collection.
Have you tried these, what do you think?
**Please excuse the horrible pictures, i have no other make up on, bad lighting and camera wont focus! This looks much more beautiful and colourful in person :)
