First, a shoutout to the best boy ever.
And then a shoutout to this color.
It's a warmish light pink that you think is gonna be kind of 'eh' when you put it on, like, yeah, it's another pink. Cool! I have lots of pinks! Pink is good for everything! You open it and the wand kind of bounces out like it's spring-loaded and you're like, okay, Tiny Pink, you're excited to get out in the world.
Then you catch a glimpse of yourself in the rearview mirror of the car, and you are a STUNNER.
Maybe you're not a stunner but at least this pink is a stunner so it will make you look like a stunner (I have experienced this effect firsthand).
The formula is really unique, in that it's a water-based gloss. It sounds like the Maybelline Color Elixirs but it's more like the YSL Glossy Stains that everyone sighed over and then the L'Oreal water shiny color snuggle whatever the heck glossy stains that everyone actually bought because they were pretty much the same thing. Dior Fluid Stick is thicker than that formula, though, so it actually stays glossy for longer than the L'Oreal. But thanks to its formula, it never gets sticky, only lightly tacky as it dries down. It will never get your hair caught in it.
As it dries down, the pink becomes more obvious and gorgeous.
In short, I love it, and I highly recommend this formula and this color! I'd love to try other colors but probably won't because that priiiiiiice ($35) so I'm going to stick with loving this and those L'Oreal colors.
Tip: When you pull out the applicator, it doesn't have a ton of product on it initially so I like to dip it in another time with a kind of scooping motion to get more for a second coat. One coat is plenty, but a second with more product will really intensify the glossy effect.
