the hunt for the perfect red for my asian nc30-nc35 skin tone is over! I feel like this red captures the essence of red that matches my yellow undertones. I'm not sure how hard it is for cool (or warmer if you want to think pink is a cool color) complexioned people to find their color, but for my skin i feel like some reds are too orangey, and some are too blue. I was looking for something neutral with the teeniest amount of blue to pull the whiteness of my teeth though, and this is it. =). 08 and 14 are also very nice neutral colors from this satin line
The best thing about this lipstick is the divine red shade- it really is the ultimate classic red lipstick. It has blue undertones and is so, so flattering. It makes my face come alive. What I dislike, however, is how drying it is. I have to put chapstick underneath and also over the top after about a half hour. Plus, it transfers to my teeth like crazy! I literally have to swipe my finger over my teeth every 15 mins to get it off to avoid embarrassment. And thats even with the usual tricks to try and avoid teeth staining... Huff. However, the colour cannot be faulted.
I use this bright red lipstick on weekends or special occasions- it is so pigmented that I apply it with a lip brush, on top of some of my favourite chap stick.
I love that it doesn't have the waxy smell typical of lipstick, and that the lasting power is actually decent considering it didn't cost me much at all. The only con I can think of is that it is lacking in the moisture department (hence applying it on top of a layer of chap stick).
I also like that the undertones of the red are more blue than orange-- much more flattering in my humble opinion.
All in all, it is a steal!
I have the mulberry one in shade 107. Very matte and dark. It's lovely. Doesn't flake and look dusty.
Very good red lipstick! I usually just pat it on for a more toned down effect, though it is still a very pigmented, lovely color. Even more outstanding when applied full on. Makes teeth look whiter. Lasts at least a good 5 hours, even through lunch, and does not dry out my lips (which dries and chaps with most lip-products, longwear or not).
I have yellow undertone, so most red lipstick make my skin look even more yellow. This shade however is perfect since it neutralizes any yellow on your skin or teeth. The packaging is beautiful and you can't beat the price.
Great campaign and black bullet packaging, lovely cherry scent, very deep colour, long lasting. Worth the price for a drug store product.
Unfortunately, awful matte application, very drying.
An absolutely perfect red. I love wearing it on nights out and weekends, maybe a bit much for work or school. Blue toned red so makes your teeth appear whiter and the lipstick is a matte/satin so stays on the lips for quite a long bit of time. I am very much impressed with the consistency, wear time, color, color range, and price of these lipsticks. Similar to me to MAC Russian Red. Must have,
Can I just say that I love this lipstick! It looks great on my medium olive skin. Also it looks very vibrant in fairskinned ladies. Very red and wonderful. Also it smells great! Another plus, I left it in my car one very hot day and came back and it hadn't budged at all. My go to red!
Perfect true blue-red colour lipstick. Great price. Lasts forever but recommend using lip liner to avoid any smudges or feathering. Lasted through meals just ok. Feels a little dry but to be expected with long-lasting products. Cheap price - around $AU10-15. I own it it in 10 (red), 11 (dark maroon red) and 19 (dark nude pink). Packaging is nice and classy. Would defintely recommend this range to anyone!
