I saw these liquified lipsticks at Sephora when they first came out. The tester for the Metallic Peony was missing and it was really the only colour I was interested in trying. Another trip at another time and there it was! I swatched it and bought it for $25 CAD. The regular formula of this lipstick didn’t really interest me. I like a little more shine. I found the formula easy to apply with the sponge tip applicator and really not “metallic” at all. I felt it looks more glossy than anything. It is fairly long wearing and when it does wear off you will find a glitter residue on your lips.
