Both colors look fab and have an amazing amount of pigment in them. It didn't take me long to get the color looking intense and they glided on my lips really nice and smooth. They don't feel drying either which is great. I've heard quite a few people saying they don't like Illamasqua's regular lipsticks as they feel a bit dry. These ones have a fantastic texture and don't feel dry at all. Not only do they look great on but they stay on for most of the day too. I just love the color selection of these lipsticks, out of the two I bought I didn't really have a favorite as they both looked great.
