I found this lipstick during a drugstore search for a "deep neutral" tone of lip colour...the kind of colour that clearly is more than a my-lips-but-better lipstick, yet is not too overstated, and simply makes one look put-together and elegant. At first, I feared that this plummy-mauve shade would run too light against my NC42 skintone and pigmented lips, but it was surprisingly fully opaque in a couple of swipes and quite flattering as well. It's the "deep neutral" I'd always wanted! It may seem drying at first, but strangely, after some use, I found that I no longer needed any lip balm over it - I suppose it has a breaking in period. This lipstick truly is Classique and I believe it would suit many skintones and makeup looks. One more thing that I must mention is that while the lipstick case may seem cheap from afar, it actually has considerable heft and makes you feel as though you are using a more expensive product that surely will not fall out of its packaging (and it surely won`t!). Let this be a lesson to those of us that constantly fall for new products: as was stated in that modern classic film, Aladdin (*chuckles*), there are diamonds in the rough, and they`ve been there for awhile!!
This shade is very flattering on me and I love the creamy consistency. Great find!
Lovely sheered-out but buildable plum-brown, MLBB. No scent/taste. Very flattering. Annabelle makes great, affordable, quality stuff!
Well, it doesn't look like a lipstick of $4.75 :) Color is mauve-berry-rose(?) looks like YLBB if applied sheer on the top of some lip balm; and very "put together" looking by itself with Chanel Nude liner. And if you will add some Guerlain Kiss-Kiss gloss in Figue Plaisir... Beautiful evening look. Love it! Packaging is a sleek gun-metal bullet. I will definitely try other shades.
What a great find! The new velvet Annabelle lipsticks are just as good of quality of MAC imo, and cost 1/3 the price. Classique is a great reddish plum with a touch of brown. Its medium in depth, but can look darker or lighter depending on application. Not a sheer colour, definatly a creme.
