The colours are beautiful. In my local pharmacy they had 5 shades, including a nude, an orange and a red. All absolutely eye catching. But being the pink lover that I am, I went straight for 105 Petal Plush and 705 Blush Essence. Petal Plush is a lovely baby pink, slightly blue-ish toned, with some fine shimmers in it and Blush Essence is a more rosy shade, not as shimmery, but still very glossy. It's my favourite out of the two.

Staying power is also pretty good. Even after eating or drinking I could still feel my lips a little moisturised and it leaves a subtle stain behind. Not as strong as other Lip Stains, but I'd say I only need to reapply once/twice during the whole day, unless I'm eating and drinking too often! And to top it off, it smells amazing!
The only thing I would change would be for the shade 105 Petal Plush to be less glittery. Just personal preference. But overall, I can't fault this product. I'm really impressed! It was honestly love at first swipe! :-)
Superdrug currently has a '2 for £10' deal on them. I'm tempted to buy more shades! I saw online that there's also a Caramel and a Coral lip gloss, which my local shop didn't have. I will hunt them down or will order online! Superdrug offers free delivery to the shops, which is pretty convenient.
