NC25 Chinese, warm yellow toned.
As part of a fun "lot of lipstick" swap where you don't know where you get, I got "Garnet".. and it's a bright (pink) red that pulls that 1950s look well for my skin tone... it's what MAC Ruby Woo or Russian Red could never do for me. It swatches with an undertone of fuschia pink, but applied, it's really a great retro red.
Just another red recommendatoin for another girl w/ similar coloring. My other favorite reds is the YSL GS #10 (deep glossy red, even better is the L'Oreal dupe in Endless Red but formula sucks) and DC'd Sonia Kushak Bordeaux (brown brick red).
I don't see what the big deal is about, a lip stick is a lip stick...
These lipsticks have a nice colour range which is identical to the Jordana original lipsticks.
The colour pay off is really good as well and they are not drying at all. Its not super stay, no retouch but it does last a long time. Some actually stain the lips but that is a plus for me.
I don't have all of them but the selection is awesome and they have something for every skin tone. Some are too light but oh well... I am not a fan of anything frosty so, Idk about those but the satins are pretty.
My fave so far are Grape, Raisin and Hazelnut.
AWFUL! I got two of these in Hot Cocoa and Brown at my local Beauty Supply Store for $1 each. The only pros are they are really creamy and the price is really low, but that is all. The color payoff is all wrong. I may as well have bought two red lipsticks because this is what color they ended up being, although they were supposed to be brown. The lipstick is overly creamy to the fact that it slides right off your lips and bleeds and runs all over the place. I hate that! I was really dissapointed in this lipstick. The packaging is also very flimsy and doesn't click back into place, I had to keep the little piece of label tape on it in order to keep it closed. A lipliner does not help the smudginess, this lipstick brand is a total mess.
60 shades including a few peach colors that I like! Perhaps I can find good dupes in the bunch? Will buy more shades.
