Being a waterproof, rub-resistant liner, it's not going to be terribly forgiving on the lips if you fill them completely. Up close, my lips were visibly dry because I unwisely didn't prep my lips properly beforehand, but I still love how it turned out.
I received two shades of the Eye Designer Refill: 83 Mountain Ash, a greyed cornflower blue, and 88 Dimgray, a cool, deep taupe. Both shades perfectly fit the "misty autumn forest" theme of this collection, and have a satiny finish.

I'm wearing 83 Mountain Ash near the lashline, which I blended into 88 Dimgray on the lid. Lips are ColourPop Lumiere, not the Hydra Lip Booster, FYI.
I think if you're looking for a very convenient and portable package, and you prefer your eyeshadow looks on the softer, subtler side, then the Eye Designer system might be right for you. Personally I feel like it's a lot of hassle to use, and there is a sacrifice of versatility and opacity in exchange for the convenience. The Eye Designer Applicator itself is $18 CAD for what is essentially a glorified version of the sponge tip applicators that come in eyeshadow palettes.
