I have Nocturna and it's one of the most beautiful lip products I've ever tried. just a gorgeous sheer cool-toned berry purple. I love how buildable the formula is. I will say the advertising for this product made it look like a juicy hydrating gloss stick, and its not that. the formula is too stiff and waxy to be a gloss stick. IMO, this is a good thing, because these don't smear or get goopy, instead they stick to the lips and wear off like a lipstick. I can't wait for the restock because I want more colors.

More like a gloss stick than balmy texture, it's a VERY sticky formula, and quite thick. Looks nice on, but I hate the way it feels.

I love absolutely everything about this - just feels wonderful on the lips. Sheer but pigmented. Mild, slightly coconutty scent that fades quickly. Please carry more of the colors because I would get them all!

I own many tinted lip balms from drugstore to luxury brands so I bought the shade Nocturna the day it launched here at Ulta and it quickly became a new favorite. The formula is lightweight and thin with a smooth jelly like texture that glides on effortlessly without tugging or emphasizing lip lines. It doesn't feather or leave a ring inside the lips and it wears away evenly.
Nocturna may look scary dark but it's actually a slightly cool toned berry brown shade with a glossy finish that applies sheer but can be built up to medium opacity. It's very flattering on my vampire pale skintone but is the type of shade that looks good on everyone. I can't recommend it enough and will likely pick up more shades.
*There were at least 10 shades available the day I bought it but now, a few weeks later, only 2 show for some reason.

If you like a jelly looking lip, youll love this. Teminds me so much of kpop lips when I use it. I need every color!

This is one of my fave lip products of all time. The packaging is super luxe, the shades are amazing (I own Ardor and Lux) and the formula is divine: comfortable, nourishing, buildable, shiny. If you like the Charlotte Tilbury Happikiss formula but it's a bit too thick, these are perfect for you.

What I received was not balmy or moisturizing at ALL. It was literally so dry I couldn't even use it.

I couldn't resist ordering one of these, I'm addicted to glossy lipstick-balm hybrids and have to try them all. Very nice packaging, it's pretty and substantial. The formula of these are amazing. It's very solid, not melty at all. Applies like a dream, so evenly and in one swipe. Feels very nice, no scent or taste. Color is very nice. I will probably order a few more.

This lipstick is so much better than I anticipated. The formula is much more stable than other glossy bullet products that have been popular for the past couple years, so I don't worry about it melting or getting messy. You can do one sheer swipe or get pretty opaque pigment with multiple. And while they certainly aren't transfer-proof, the hydration and pigment last for at least 2-3 hours, even while sipping on a drink. For reference, I have Nocturna, Luz, and Ardor - all three perform similarly with no scent or taste. Oh and the component is actually sturdy! I've had too many loose caps on lipsticks lately, but this one securely clicks into place.
