PACKAGING: The packaging is classy and very appealing. It is very decent with a champagne pink metallic bullet having the shade name at the bottom. The packaging is sturdy.

SHADE:  Beige Post is a very subtle nude brown shade with silver shimmer.

TEXTURE, FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of the lipstick is smooth and it glides on easily.However,as in all cases,it starts getting dry after few minutes and settles to a matte finish from being satin-matte.I find this shade a bit too drying and uncomfortable to wear as compared to the others.

???????????????????????????????

My lips feel very dry and the sparkle in the lipstick settles in the lip lines makes them feel gritty.The staying power is also low for about 2 hours as it is a light shade and fades easily.I f I have a drink in between then I can see,lipstick peelings at the mouth of the mug which is a total put off.Also,this shade is not meant for all skin tones as it washes my nc35 skin tone a bit and can look streaky on darker skin tones.
