I don't know why there aren't more reviews for this fantastic lipstick! I am pale-skinned, an ashy blonde and have medium-pigmented lips. I wanted a warm-toned red lipstick, since I usually wear warm-tones and wanted a coral-leaning lipcolor. This one is perfect! It is a rich red with warm undertones, not garish or orange. It goes on smoothly and the packaging is beautiful. It stays on me for about four hours, even with eating and drinking (although it does lighten during eating, so I tend to reapply afterwards). When I want less of a statement color, I blot it and sheer it out with a bit of Burts Bees, and it turns into an amazing rose lipcolor. I wear it with MAC's Lychee Luxe Lipglass and they are perfect together!
Excellent formula: lightweight yet hydrating and satisfyingly longwearing.
Coromandel is a stunning, statement shade that has the appearance of a true red but with a tad more warmth. On that basis, perhaps best reserved for yellow-based, fair complexions (?).
Anyway, highly recommended.
