I first spotted these lipsticks at my local Duane Reade and immediately noticed the cute packaging. However, there were not many shade selections and being a pinky nude junky, I gravitated towards 08. While it is not a pinky nude, it is a rosy pink, perfect for fall and winter.
I noticed Ulta had shades that Duane Reade didn't have so I picked up 14. It is a nude and probably one of the only nudes that work on my skin-tone. Although I have to admit it will probably look better on me in the summer than in the winter.

In most places the lipstick retails for less than $6.
The lipstick is scented (kinda annoying but not as strong as L'oreal lipsticks).
It is from their lasting finish line so it is drying but does not completely disappear, darker colors leave a nice tint.
And here are the lip swatches (08 above and 14 below):
I'm including a full face shot (eek!) because I think it helps to see how the lipstick works with my skin-tone. I'm wearing 14, the nude shade.
