I love it! Tacha has designed an amazing package for this lipstick. Elegant, simple, chic and luxurious. They have combined so well the gold and white colors together, that I couldn’t resist to try it. The good part that the inside of the package is attractive too.

Formula & Application

Firstly let me continue with the shape of the lipstick. The corners that it has, are helping me to have a more defined application with less time than other lipsticks.

Secondly, when I smell it and realized that is fragrance-free, I like it more. It has a nourishing creamy-hydration formula with a touch of glow, but not glossy or shimmer. I was quite surprised by that.

Nevertheless, I love this lipstick for many reasons. It has a rich, full coverage and long-lasting formula. Yeap! I can wear it for 5 hours straight, without smudging, or losing color or feeling my lips dry.

The bad news? This color is limited edition and is more pinkish that is in the picture.
