I wouldn't call this a "red", it's more of a berry color with more red than pink. Very nice. Smooth. Creamy. Not shiny, but not dry.
LOOOOVE the packaging with the little lip brush tucked away!
Finally I found my HG lip and blush in one container. I love this color and texture. It just gives my lips enough color to look nice but not too shiny. Look lovely as blush as well. Doesn't clog pores and no break out. :-D
This is the first red I have found that looks great on me. Its a wonderful shade! Its very matte, so long-lasting. It comes in a flip top round container with a small good quality hair brush tucked inside. There is a generous amount. This is a new favorite!!
