The other one is  NUDE: a true brown .

PERFORMANCE:The lip liner are decently pigmented.I wont call them smooth but they aren’t very drying.They go on easily on lips without tugging but your lips need to be properly exfoliated.

The liner is comfortable on lips but appers to be a bit drying.It doesnt transfer to other objects.

I usually use it as a base for lighter shades and it works well.Sometimes,it can be used as proper lipcolor with a clear gloss over it.

As a lip liner,it is fine as it helps in providing definition to lips.

Staying power is around 6 -7 hours when used as a base for lip shades.
