I bought this one at a drugstore, thinking it would be a rather wine-like red, because that's what it looks like. However, once applied, it turned out to be a rather pink based true red. It's very pretty and it's not too drying for a matte formula.
I would really recommend this one for anyone looking for a nice, economic red. For its price, I have to say it has really good quality. The only reason why I'm not buying this again is because I have enough red lipsticks already and this wasn't the color I wasn't originally looking for, but I still recommend it.
The pigment of the lipstick is very strong and doesn't seem to come off except with constant blotting (water is ineffective) and so even when it's filled it's purpose you have bleeding and off-coloured lips.
The lipstick itself is super cheap, sweetly packaged and has a creamy consistency but after a while it left my lips really dry as well as a bleeding effect.
finally found my favorite red lip! Total sexy vamp style on my cocoa brown complexion. definitely bold but not too bright. red color is a little brick with a hint of blue tone. goes on creamy and opaque. lasts well with without bleeding - i even wore without a liner the first few times and it wasn't too messy. it has a mostly matte finish but doesn't look dry either. definitely transfers when eating, drinking or kissing, but oh well. the case top clicks on securely so i'm not scared of a red nightmare in my purse. Great price - so worth a try!
This is my first Kate lipstick. I have #11. On my lightly pigmented lips, it is a vivid deep red. It is creamy and long wearing and perks up my entire face (medium complexion, brown eyes). This is the only color in the line that appeals to me. The others seem kind of dull. When I saw this dark red, I had to try it. I'm glad I did.
This red, I thought would be more sheer, instead is super highly pigmented, which is not a bad thing either. Lasts a good while and is a gorgeous, classic red. Love it. Would love to find a secure lid for the lipstick. Not sure if it'll stay put over time.
I have so far been very impressed by the Kate Moss collection of Lasting Finish lipsticks, but #11 just didn't work for me. I would describe the shade as lightly berry-colored. A little red, a little pink, neither here nor there. I don't feel that I look good in berry colors unless they are very deep, so this shade didn't make me happy. I also feel that it's a very generic shade- there are probably a hundred other lipsticks in your average drugstore that will give you a similar look. However, this is only about four and a half bucks, so if you're looking for a good-quality, mid-tone berry shade, this might be for you. I find that the Lasting Finish lipsticks generally apply well and last a decent amount of time. I'll probably return this shade though.
