The pigment in both these colours is quite strong. There's also no bad taste with theses lipsticks. Often I find that drugstore lipsticks can have a pretty bad taste, but these are grand. However they do have a fragrance, but I actually like it. For some reason the baby pink lipstick has a stronger smell than the burgundy one! They both smell like typical lipsticks I quess, but the pink lipstick has a hint of sweets off it!
Overall I would recommend these to anyone, even if your not sure weather or not you'd like the matte, just go for it. They are most definatly worth the price! Don't forget to follow!
