I've used the Modele Perfect Lip product before in a clear and I really liked it so when I was visiting a small town a few months ago and stopped in at a pharamacy to pick up a Thank you gift for the family we were going to visit there I came across a large display of products by Modele that were drastically reduced. When I originally purchased the Perfect Lip product before I paid $32 for it (yes, I know - call me sad). Seeing the same product on sale at this store for just $2.50 - well, I had to have one of every shade!
I didn't go that far though - the line was being discontinued and the majority of shades available were very dark. The shade I finally decided upon - just because I had to have one - is called St. Tropez. It's a fairly dark brownish shade, nice when on the lips but for my use just a dab will do otherwise the lips will be very dark.
This is a nice lipstick that goes on smoothly and leaves the lips feeling well hydrated. The lipstick stays on quite well and does appear to provide conditioning. It also lasts once applied and doesn't appear to come off very easily.
Had this product not been on sale, I wouldn't have purchased this color but for those times when I want to darken my lips just a hint, applying this sparingly works well. It will last me a very long time by the looks of it as I've not really even made any dent in the shape of the lipstick tube from when it was new.
I would have preferred a lighter shade to be honest as I know that the clear Lipstick I purchased in this line lasted me about 5 months but I used it every day as more or less a primer base before putting on any lipstick and it worked exceptionally well. I imagine that if I did the same with this tube I could possibly enhance other lipstick that I put over it to lighten the look and possibly extend the wear time but I haven't tried mixing and matching yet. I'll have to do that to see just how it works out with this one.
Overall, for the price, I'm glad I purchased it. Would I pay full price for it - no, not this shade but definitely I'd purchase the right shade at full price. Nice product that goes on smoothly and leaves lips feeling silky soft.
