Overall Feedback:
As someone who is seen in all forms of media every single day, Kris Aquino really curated the most wearable and practical shades for everyday use that all Filipinas can relate to. This collection is all about mauve-based shades, and generally the colors that can liven up any kind of look, but in a subtle way. 

The texture is a mousse type liquid that dries and sets into a luxurious velvety matte finish. It thankfully doesn't flake off if one rubs one's lips. It's thick when liquid, but sets into medium thickness––it's thick enough to cover the lips thoroughly, but thin enough to feel weightless and to not feel hot on the lips. It's generally comfortable to use, even for people with dry lips, but of course, for best results, this should be applied on lips that have been pre-treated with a lip scrub or lip balm (but of course the lip balm must be wiped off prior to application). It lasts well if one doesn't eat, but one will really need to retouch several times throughout the day if meals are involved. 

It has good color payoff as it takes little effort to make this opaque, and shades are accurate with respect to how it looks like in the tube as it doesn't oxidize after drying and setting. Those who are not into scented items will like this as this is unscented for the most part. The packaging is also shorter than a lot of liquid lipstick offerings in the market today, so it's relatively more compact to bring around. 

At Php255 for 3.2mL, it's more or less priced right, as most Php299 lippies are at 4-5mL. For the product itself, of course it's a given that fans of Kris would love to hoard this. But for those who might not necessarily be her fans but are looking for universally flattering shades that work well in all occasions, this is a good collection to start looking into.
