Jane Iredale Lip Fixation in Devotion review, swatches, photos

I bought this Jane Iredale lippy because it matched a dress perfectly and I wanted to wear the dress to my cousin's wedding.
The Lip Fixation series comprises a tube with a stain at one end and gloss at the other. All the shades in the range that I saw - and all the glosses - seemed to have shimmer, though I haven't seen the entire range. The gloss and the stain come in complementary shades.
 I love the packaging. Slipped right into the already-crowded box clutch I took to the wedding, clear box and all. There's a 'J' and an 'I' in gold on either ends of the tube. The shade I bought was called "Devotion". The stain looked a lot more red inside the tube, but turned into a beautiful shimmering berry when applied.
Not everyday wear, of course, but perfect for weddings, evenings out and glittery events. The gloss looked neutral inside the tube, but was more or less clear, with shimmer, when applied. Here are swatches indoors (left) and outdoors (right).
 This lipstick lasted all day, despite a heavy meal and enough drinks during the wedding. No touch-ups were needed. Normally, such double-ended tubes come up with stains that flake off or peel off after a while (except for Chanel Rouge Double Intensite and Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Duo). But, to my surprise, this didn't peel or flake off. Nor did it vanish from the middle, leaving a weird lip liner-like bit of colour around the edges. It did fade a bit uniformly during the day, but there was plenty of pigment all over the lips.
Two things - it looks better with the gloss over it. And, the gloss has a rotten brush. After a few prods with it, I applied another gloss and it worked just fine. I'm going to buy Jane Iredale Lip Fixation in "non-weddingy", subdued colours, such as Craving.
