These are closer to what Chanel is and what Guerlain should have been: A lip lacquer that goes on like a gloss but wears like a lipstick. I find this formula absolutely delightful. If I had a complaint… it was that Shiseido put more product in the tube. I feel like my tubes came half full — although that might simply be a testament to the lightness of the product.
I ended up with three of the best colors from the collection, in my opinion. Orange (of course), Fuchsia, and a brown-based Red.
