I don’t know what to make of this…its very different from anything that I’ve ever used before. I got #13 from Nordstrom, it’s an exclusive color that they have. From the second I opened this gloss up I knew it was different. It’s glossy but full of some serious pigmentation. Even when the glossiness goes away after 3 hrs or so, the color stays. I kind of feel like this is slowly drying out on my lips during the day. I know that doesn’t sound good but I feel that hour by hour my lips are a little less glossy. The color looks consistently great though. This might not be a great fit for everyone but I like different, so it works for me.

I must say that I love the way Rose Tempura looks. The stain stays with you all day but you will loose the glossy shine over time and on your coffee cup and after a meal. Besides the fantastic color payoff the flat wide wand makes application really easy. I’m in love with the wand. Its so wide and soft! I detected a flowery scent whenever I used this. It fades but it is there for the first few minutes after application.
This is really a fun product to try. Check it out at Nordstrom or Sephora in person to see if you like it. They recently added all the other shades (19 of em!) to the Nordstrom website. I think for many this is a product that you should try before you buy.
