I have mixed feelings about this lipstick.
Let me explain: the packaging is gorgeous! Sleek black matte with silver trim and a sticker on the bottom to tell (and show!) you which shade is which:
The colour is seriously beautiful. Jam is a deep maroon with pink undertones - no shimmer, just shiny, intense colour :
The texture is lovely. It's creamy and soft and moisturises your lips while you wear it.
It's a pigmented, moisturising lipstick in a lovely package and what else do you want?!
Well, the lipstick transfers very easily and even without eating or drinking, tends to last only 3-4 hours. Not a huge downfall, right?
Site description: "long-wearing, feather-resistant lipstick glides on easily for full coverage, and intensely conditions and hydrates lips."
I dunno about you, but when I think of "long-wearing" I generally think of 5-6 hours, for a lipstick.
That in itself isn't a deal-breaker though, right? I mean, it's one little flaw in an otherwise-
NO. ARBONNE, NO. Just because here in Australia we're paying $36 for a MAC lipstick, it doesn't mean we're happy to pay an extra dollar for a lipstick that doesn't do what you say it will!
I mean, don't get me wrong, it's a nice lipstick and I'll still wear it. It's just nowhere near $37-before-shipping "nice" when I can't even wear it for long.
If you disagree, you can find Arbonne's online store here. The U.S. store has them for $25, of course.
