Aurora contains four colors in the lip crème formula. Illuminate - a sheer, hot pink with shimmer, Voltaic - a satin creamy nude mauve (my favorite), Dynamos - a glittery coppery coral and Eos - an opaque bright pink. Le Métier de Beauté lip kaleidoscopes are suppose to be layered to create one beautiful shade. But of course can be used on there own. If you are going to layer, you are supposed to layer the lip colors from the top to bottom. The glosses are not sticky and have pretty descent lasting power. I almost feel that they leave a stain of color once the gloss has worn off. Overall this is a great kit for summer and the colors are very wearable for all occasions. The packaging is beautiful but a little cumbersome to take on the go, especially if you are using a smaller handbag.
