Not for me

This is a gorgeous lipstick, if lips are exfoliated and hydrated it applies like a dream.
It will settle into cracks if you haven't exfoliated before application.
I have dark olive skin, right now I'm super tan from this beautiful sun we've been having lately.
It was far too light and shimmery for my skin type, if I apply and then dab some of the lipstick off it looks pretty good.
I found if I leave it for ten minutes, it'll soak and settle quite nicely.
On the other hand if I had paler skin this would be the perfect glossy lipstick.
It has great shine and people with paler skin will look lovely with the wonderful sparkle it gives.
I give it 4 stars, I've taken a star off for the fact that when taking make up off you can end up with fine glitter all over your face and also because it doesn't come in a huge range of colours for darken skinned beauties.
But 4 stars for hydration, shine and sparkle.
All in all this is a nice colour to layer with or for during winter it's more suited to me.
If I give it 10 minutes it doesn't look too bad on my skin though.
So yes it's a good lipstick.
Oh and it's not sticky :)
