Number 4 is a dark vampy cool plum with no shimmer, and #15 is a color that I don't see often in the drugstore - a shimmery ash purple. In the display, it's promoted as a "Smokey Look" topcoat, but I love to wear it alone. It looks scary swatched, but I feel it is wearable for cool-toned ladies across the spectrum.

The lipsticks have a strong fruity smell that is noticeable upon application, but fades after 15 to 20 minutes after application. They apply smooth and creamy and have a slight sheen, but can be blotted down to a matte finish. They wear for about 4 hours before fading, but I reapply often due to my constant water drinking. I always use lip balm under my lipsticks, but after removing these at the end of the day, my lips feel fine and are not dried out.
