The swatch on the left is taken with flash and the swatch on the right is taken under natural light. It's been pretty cloudy so the swatch looks a little darker than usual.
This lipstick had a similar effect as Ruby Valentine of fading after two hours, but it was barely noticeable. I'm not sure I would have realized had I not been looking out for it. After six hours and eating some pasta, the lipstick has definitely lost its shine, but I could definitely still wear it out without reapplying.
The best part of this lipstick is that it doesn't dry my lips out. I remember wearing Revlon lipsticks in high school and by lunchtime my lips would be chapped. This formula is a lot creamier and hasn't ever made my lips chapped.
