Difficult to get decent colour from it

I didn't really like it, although I know people who think it's a really good lipstick. It's fine for the price if you want a cheap lipstick to keep in your bag and stick on if you've forgotten the rest of your makeup but it's not one I'll buy again. First off, I like a really bold red lipstick - this is not one of them. It's very difficult to get decent coverage or colour, you really have to layer it on. Even then it's not a deep rich red but more of a pinky red, which isn't really my thing. I found it quite difficult to apply precisely simply because I did have to layer it on so much and because the stick is so thin. It is pretty matte, although it doesn't last particularly long. It doesn't look too bad as it's fading, just leaves a pinky red stain. I didn't find it too drying to wear. I used it a couple of times but pink really doesn't suit me so I gave it to my mother who doesn't like bold makeup, and it looked lovely on her. Obviously at that price it's not going to be amazing quality but I wear lipsticks that are a similar price and their quality is good, so maybe this is just not a great product.
