The colors are called: Kiss YouThrough the Dark,Taken. My daughter tried the Kiss You color in the above picture. I like the tint of the Kiss You color and the sparkle it gives her lips. They are suppose to make a cool look in UV light but I don't have one to test it out! I think these colors are great for any teenager!

My daughter Jessica tested the blue Why dont we go There. It looks great on her.
