I had been using a Sante lipstick for years and the color was discontinued. I have been looking for something similar for a while now. Cosmetic shopping is not easy online. The pictures rarely represent the actual color. it is great that samples are available but this color (Grape Sherbert) did not work for me at all. It is truly a light purplish pink with shimmer and fairly sheer. It looks more like something for a little grandaughter rather than for me. I use Real Purity eyeshadows, blush and have used the mascara but the lipstick are too shimmery, and sheer for me.
Thanks for Making Sample Sizes
I appreciate being able to buy a sample size to try a product. I was surprised how much I liked the Grape Sherbet lipstick and wouldn't have known it if a sample size hadn't been available to buy. Appealing color, texture, sheen, and non-taste.

As others have remarked, the sample size is VERY small. However, it is large enough for me to test its color and verify it does not irritate my sensitive lips. I haven't worn lipstick for over 20 years - only admired it from afar, because all the colored lip products I tried made my lips crack and peel. Lipstick is what brought me to the Real Purity website. I'm looking forward to trying other colors and the full size lipstick, to see how it works in the long run.

I put my review of this one under bronze cloud by mistake. This color made my lips look completely colorless probably because if you mix purple & yellow [which are complementary colors on the color wheel] it makes gray or they nuetralize each other. This is a slightly purpley color & my complexion is fair warm with yellow or sallow undertones. Didn't do anything for m e.
Absolutely beautiful color! Very subtle shimmer, not at all overpowering. Great for day or night time.
Meh Color on Me
I'm giving this guy a couple stars because it is creamy and good for sensitive skin. As far as the color though, it just didn't really show up on my natural lip color so it wasn't worth it for me.
The color is so perfect! The lipstick also feels very good on. You could wear this shade anywhere
This lip color elicited an actual remark from my teenage daughter! She says this is her favorite color on me. I''m in my 50s, I have red hair and freckles, and didn't think much of the sample but tried it anyway. It doesn't make my lips burn like most lip products and there's no perfume. Thanks!
Love the way this looks and the formula, but it's too mauve-y and makes my teeth look yellower than they are (or maybe I'm just sensitive to that). But, if you can wear light, pinky-mauve shades, this is great.
Wonderful product. Grape Sherbet is a beautiful natural and neutral color w/some shimmer. I wear it often. It's a color I can even let my nine year old daughter wear like lip gloss and feel good about. Love the fact that I can't really taste or smell it like conventional lipstick.
