Looks like a dramatic neutral red on me - I have yellow tones and it suits me. A bold, creamy mid red - not deep but 'in your face' and totally gorgeous. Doesn't wear as long as I'd like it too. This is my signature red lipstick and I love it when I get it as a GWP.
I love this lipstick! It's a great red, it looks really nice, not too shiny, not too matte. It is pretty long-staying. It's perfect for my pin-up looks. The bad thing is the price... but another good thing added to all is that a little goes a long way, so it's worth it :)
Okay, so I don't actually own this product, but I tried it on for fun today at Sephora, and this is the only red that's ever looked good on my fair skin. I tried to make MAC's Russian Red work for me because I heard blue-based reds look good on any skintone, but it just didn't work for me. I'm no expert but this seems like a blue-based red, too, but for some reason, this just looked great on me. I love the texture of Clinique lipsticks. They feel very moisturizing, almost like a gloss without the stickiness, which is the perfect texture for me. The only reason I don't actually own this is because I'm not very daring. If I could feel confident enough to wear a red lip, this would be it.
I forgot how good this lipstick is! I rediscovered it as part of my 'low buy'. I have a lot of red lipsticks and think this is amazing.
Firstly the colour is gorgeous. It is highly pigmented so you could dab it on or for a really dramatic look - that will not smear or bleed all over your face - you could 'plaster' it on. (Don't know the technical term!)
It has a satin finish - it's not completely matte and not very shiny. It stayed on all night and suited my NW15 skin tone.
Perfect for a vintage glamour look.
