I am still not sure what the color of this lipstick really is. I guess I would say it is that in between line of HOT pink and bright red, and it looks great!!! I am latina and I have a tan skin color, I was a bit afraid of how it would look on me but it actually looks REALLY GOOD. Yes, caution, it is BRIGHT and it sure stands out! I really love it though. It feels great on my lips. I recommend it!! I don't think I would buy it again because for me it is a one time thing I wanted to try, but I do like it, and a lot! If you want to try it, I say go for it. It is very chick, totally love it.
Flame is a very aptly-name color for this lipstick. It's not red, it's not orange, it's not coral: it's all of that, leaning more towards dark orange on my lips. It's HOT!
I have to admit though that it took me a few times wearing it to start really appreciating it...it is very bright and a little drying. Also, I find that it really does take 3 goods layers (with blotting in between) to get a nice, deep and matte color.
Also, as with all red lipsticks, it is a lot of work (layers, blotting, making sure you stay in the lines) because in my taste, I like really standout colors to look perfect (otherwise it looks cheap or a little clownesque, in my opinion) So: before you apply this fiery color, take your time! This is not to be rushed.
I'm not sure if I would rebuy, I think the orangy-red trend won't last
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.
