The lipstick comes beautifully packaged in a glossy black case which reveals the lipstick and truly is exquisite. A highly-pigmented matte lip colour that provides non-drying comfort on the lips and leaves a suede finish. It applies smoothly and evenly. Usually matte lipstick formulas can be hit or miss but I think Louboutin has nailed this formula. This lipstick glides on the lips with a very minimal tug which is expected with a matte lipstick due to their dry texture. It has an intensely rich colour and goes on with full coverage. It maintains an excellent appearance on the lips for up to 4 hours without bleeding and with durable comfort. Overall a great product and well worth the price tag.
