The merits of the formula is the comfortable, lightweight feel and
flattering range of shades, the disadvantages however are a very short

go past without buying at least one thing, I must concede that there are
better sheer lipsticks on the market and I think you'd be safe to give this one a miss.
I bought this from Boots
