I am a NC35. The color just does not look good with my skin tone. It looks more like a melon color, not a true red.
This is a perfect Tomato Red drugstore lipstick. I found it hydrating, moisturizing, and very pigmented. I also appreciate the red tint left behind after about a 3 hour wear. These lipsticks are also lightly scented but not an over the top. I plan on buying a few more of these CG lippies. They are fab!
This lipstick is super BRIGHT. I am a deep chocolate complextion so this color pops...like POW. The color is a mixture of red, pink and coral, leaning more towards red. I LOVE it (almost as much as divine) I would caution to not moisturize your lips too much as this lippie will go on streaky.
This was straight-up hot pink on me. A little disappointing because I was expecting a coral color with a balance of red and pink, but this was all pink (at least on me). Still a pretty color. And I love how these leave a stain- they last FOREVER and I never have to worry about reapplying. Plus they are inexpensive, even for drugstore lipsticks, at 6 dollars a pop at Walmart. I won't repurchase this color because I don't wear it often, but I will be purchasing more shades from this line.
I own three Lip Perfection lipsticks..wait, I think I own four! Anyway, this is a perfect orange-red-pink and I didn't think it would work on me but it does.
I'm a girl who loves bright lip color and this did not disappoint! It's a super bright pink/coral that leans red. I really enjoy the gel formula of this lipstick. It seems to glide on with ease and stay put. It does stain easily but this isn't a huge issue for me.
If ultra coral pink bright lipstick is what your looking for look no further. I fell (for all of 3 minutes) for the bright lip trend but on my lips hated this one because I didn't think I could successfully pull this off w/o looking like a clown. Otherwise, these are lovely very pigmented, creamy, long lasting albeit lip staining lipsticks. The only downside is the subtle peculiar flavor that creeps in. For my PPP coloring Fairytale was a much better option.
As with many highly pigmented products, the only reason I say I wouldn't buy this product again is because I don't see myself using this one up... its strong!
Having said that, I love this colour and this product. I travel a lot so I am always looking for multi tasking products. Most blushes look pretty naff as lip colours (IMO). However, this, my friends, makes a wonderful blush (as does fairytale, another highly pigmented colour from this line) Love wearing it dabbed lightly on the lips over some Aquaphor, blot, reapply with fingers for a stained look. I like the look of coordinating lips + cheeks, so this takes the guess work out.
Using lipstick as blush is one of the oldest trick in make up annals, for a reason... it works. Its actually a great way to use up colours that you may not have liked on your lips.
I cannot believe this color. I have been meaning to buy it since the line came out, but this week I did. I thought it was going to be a vibrant coral, but it is intense. It's almost as intense as MAC Lady Danger. I'm going to say it's a sister shade more on the coral side than the red. It's complicated because inside it looks more coral, and outside it looks like Lady Danger. If you blot these gel lipsticks, the shades get more intense and the color payoff is outstanding. The lasting power is beyond anything in the drugstore. I don't like long wearing lip products with two steps, so these are fantastic.
