  • handy
  • It does glide on smoothly.

This has been my go-to lipstick despite having one con. When I’m having meals, I just wipe it off and it doesn’t really bother me. It has the ability to last long if and only if you don’t eat. If that works for you, then you might also like this product. I’ll probably try the other colors once I used this up.

It’s such a shame that it’s not yet listed on Amazon abroad as of this writing. Only on Amazon Japan.
