My take: So I was skeptical about the Pur Rose shade because although I looked at swatches before deciding to get it, when I received it, it looked so pink-PINK in the tube rather than a more natural pink. Luckily however, it redeemed itself when I tried it on my lips! It does an uber gorgeous nude-milky pink that's so super shiny and just LOVE! I thought the brush wand would be a little weird, but it's actually really easy to apply with and doesn't leave any streaks.
The texture if you get it on your fingers seems rather sticky, but once on lips it's super smooth and glossy -- if it's windy your hair will still get stuck in it though. One coat is pretty sheer, but the color is very buildable. 2 layers is good for me. The finish is patent leather shiny looove. The "downside" in my opinion is that the "fresh mango scent" is a bit overpowering to me (and I usually don't mind scented products!). That said, it is a nice scent at first, but gets a bit sickly sweet.. after awhile it fades. Another thing is that staying power is only a few hours at best, even less if you're eating/drinking. Overall, it is a gorgeous gloss though!
Would I repurchase: Yes, I want to try more shades -- just wish it wasn't so expensive!
