The colour is: matte, warm deep scarlet
Texture: smooth, but a lot more sticky than other lipsticks---therefore lasts long.
I like this l/s but rarely find an occasion to wear it since its such a bold solid colour. It looks the best when paired with warm blush, neutral eyes, and nicely defined brows. The colour lasts throughout the day, but looks much nicer and less "painted face" when topped with some neutral coloured shine.
A matte slightly reddened brown? deep. a true fall color not for pale skintones. i am a mac nc30/35 and got this as an extra. if i were in a slightly dark fall mood i would wear this. if it were a little redder, i'd be psyched. but if you are looking for a color like this, here it is. but sadly, this one has gone bad, so i say goodbye.
