The formula is smooth and creamy, has the perfect amount of cushion, and isn't sticky. The wear time is a couple of hours for me, but your mileage may vary. As with all Burberry lip products, Fondant Pink No. 21 contains a floral scented fragrance- though this one seems somewhat less pronounced, and I do find that the scent dissipates rapidly.
When I initially swatched the entire Spring Collection, I built up each of the Lip Glows in order to demonstrate the depth of each of the colors. While each of the colors is buildable, Fondant Pink is less so than the other 3 shades. Fondant pink is only marginally buildable because it is a pale milky pink, and therefore the most sheer shade from the collection. It can have a tendency to settle into lip lines if you do not apply enough, but that is easily remedied with a second coat- or better yet by applying it over a like-colored lip liner (the perfect shade is Rouge Bunny Rouge Vasco), or layering it on top of a lipstick.
Overall assessment: I like this shade a great deal- especially worn over Rouge Bunny Rouge Vasco. It is quite sheer, and the color (while lovely) is not particularly unique. I happen to really like these soft pale milky pinks a great deal, but if you prefer more opacity Fondant Pink will not provide it.
$27.00 I purchased mine from Nordstrom.
