This shade is called "smokin' hot pink," or 905D. My one and only gripe is that the name is ONLY on the plastic wrapping that you take off to open the product. So if I don't remember a few weeks from now what the shade name is, that's going to be a bit of a problem. (Fortunately I have this blog to keep track of things for me...I've had to refer back to several of my old posts to remember the names of different products.) But the things I love far outweigh this problem: You can wear it as a stain (by lightly patting it on) or as a full blown lipstick (by swiping it on). As a stain it is matte, and as a lipstick it has a little more of a sheen, but that dries down. These lipsticks have no shimmer at all, which I love. They aren't really drying as long as I wear a little lip balm with them. They do last quite a while as well. I only have to reapply it twice at school, and that's after I've eaten something. Although sometimes I reapply more often just because I love applying lipstick... And the best part is that the lipstick is only $2!
Now for the pictures:
It's a little patchy on my hand, but on smooth lips that isn't a problem.

I just adore this shade! It's such a pretty pinky shade that's perfect for spring. It's actually one of those colors that brightens your whole face, so that's pretty great.
I hope this was helpful :)
