Well, first this is a really bright red. Which is fine. And it looked true to color in the house, but when I went outside to see it in the natural lighting, it went from red to a pink/red. Kinda like Revlon's lipstick called
Cherries in the Snow. Also, back in the house, when I blotted it, I can see the pinkish side come though. Applied with a heavy hand, it's a true red, in the house. I am looking for a red that has no pink side coming through. As far as the formula, it is smooth. I hate to return makeup but there is no way I am going to wear this. Back to Rite-Aid it's going to go!
This is a fabulous red! I have several red Revlon lipsticks and this is my absolute HG red. I am in love. I know a lot of people try to describe different shades of red as being either blue or yellow toned- and I must say I have found some assessments dead wrong. This lipstick color is great red for those who are confused as to which one to try. Start with this one and you won't be disapointed! And the price? This is a low risk investment - but the reward is :tremendously satisfying! A cheap treat that is as good as -or dare I say it- better than a luxury department store lipstick (and I have those as well).
WOW! This is a beautiful pigmented red. This shade is what you see on all the models and and fashion mags. It will not make you look trashy just chic! Most reds will pull pink on my lips, this one was not as bad. I used 3 coats for full coverage straight from the tube. The formula goes on smooth and creamy. I do think this leaves a stain when you remove it unfortunately but its tolerable.
This lipstick is part of the Fall 2012 Revlon by Gucci Westman the Shanghai Collection. It is a lovely medium cherry red with a very slight pearl sheen. No frost here! Cherry Blossom feels light and comfortable on while still completely covering my very pigmented lips.
The wear is good, lasting 4-5 hours if I'm not eating or drinking. (If I do, I blot before and reapply after.) It fades to a muted red stain.
The color is so nice on me! It brightens up my face, and the teeny bit of pearl keeps it from being flat. It's definitely red without being RED. I love this lipstick and have been wearing it often since I tried it. It's the perfect all-year red for me.
