Rated 3 out of 5 by Jamgurlmomo Mauve is actually quite dark ...
The colour mauve is a bit more dark than seen here. I did find it suitable because I wear many different shades but other reviewers were put off by the unexpected hue.
Staying power isnt great either even used with the liner and it has dried out after a few uses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Tosca1 Superb
I bought both colours. The first ' mauve' pencil broke, but I returned it, and the replacement is fine. This set is superb. The staying power is excellent. It is matte, so could irritate those who like lip gloss. Saying that, I did not find the lipstick drying, just very comfortable to wear. Application is easy. The pencil outlines and fills in the lip before applying the lipstick and stays put. The mauve is a perfect nude for me, but is quite dark. The pink is a perfect red/deep pink. I would personally highly recommend it and look forward to more shades.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Snipes67 Disappointed
I bought this expecting great things but it was returned quickly. Applied well and liked colour however after half an hour glanced in the mirror to discover most had slid down onto my chin. Glad no one knocked on the door!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Snowbunni Effective but not for me
Bought the mauve which was called the nude on screen, I do not like the colour or matte finish I found it very dark and I wear dark lipsticks but the matte finish of the lip paint I felt was too flat for the shade. I liked the pencil and at no time did I find either of this kit drying, infact quite the reverse and I would also say this delivered on staying power so would recommend even though I have returned as it didn't suit me

I chose the nude shade which was a good color on my Indian tan skin.
To get the lipstick and liner is great value.
This had good pigmentation and both the liner and lipstick complimented each other.
It applied easily,
Sadly this did not work out for me.
Even though it looked good, from the moment it went on to my lips it felt too dry and powdery. I had to take it off.
I can manage matte lipsticks but I don't think liquid lipsticks are for me.
This has been returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ladyfinger1 Really good
I was fully expecting to have to send this back as the reviews were so mixed, especially regarding the colour. However, I am pleased with the colour. I ordered the mauve-it is just right for daily wear for a tanned complexion. It is neither dark, nor mauve, nor brown, nor pink, nor red! It is a difficult to describe but it has hues of a number of different shades which turns out to be just right for me.
Your lips do need to be well moisturised to make the crayon and the applicator go on smoothly as it does dry very matte. But then it is more long lasting than most other lip items I've tried, although it did need reapplying after a meal. However after a couple of cold drinks it was fine.
Best thing though is what is NOT in these items ie it doesn't have so many of the usual chemicals in lip products, and as these are applied on the mouth, I have been concerned about this for some time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SLacquer The mauve is way too dark
The texture of this is lovely however I purchased the mauve and it is SO dark. I was hoping for a more nude shade for daily wear but this is really quite a statement colour in the flesh and unfortunately way too dramatic for day to day wear for me. It dried my lips out a little after a while too so this will be going back I'm afraid :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by popaaaaa colors are too dark
Both colors options are very dark although during the on air presentation the nude option looked very neutral but when I received and applied it on my lips it appeared to be darkest of brown shade..the texture on the other hand is good ,wearability is good yes it's drying but then all Matt liquid lipsticks Are drying especially in winter.
If you are looking for very dark colors in Matt lipstick they are perfect for you.
