I love this lipstick! I purchase all available colors because they are simply the best drugstore lipstick available! They are highly pigmented so the color you are is the color you get. The y go on smoothly and last for a very long time without drying out your lips. I'm very happy with this product
I bought this last fall and really never wore it except once on Christmas.. I thought it was too dark / warm of a red, as it looks that way in the packaging (which I LOVE.. looks expensive). Yesterday I wore this after wearing candy yum yum in the morning & there was a bit of a stain left on my lips. I'm not sure if the pink stain changed the colour but I loved it! I never wear red lips but I felt so good. I drank starbucks and it didn't seem to wear off badly. I also love the scent of these because it reminds me of middle school when I wore rimmel lipgloss. I'll definitely be wearing this often for fall & checking out some more colours from this line.
EDIT - after wearing this again I realized it feels quite drying on my lips.. even though I moisturized before.
I love this lipstick! It is a medium-deep red that it flattering for warm and cool skin tones. It has a classic matte finish and great lasting power. The color is somewhere between a bright red and a vampy red, so it can work with a variety of looks from daytime to evening/dramatic. There is a bit of transfer, but the color on the lips does not wear off easily. At only $5, it is a great buy. The packaging is sleek and doesn't look cheap or feel flimsy.
My only negative is that it's a bit drying, but I have yet to meet a matte finish that isn't. Prepping your lips beforehand will help this greatly. Even if your lips aren't in perfect condition, this lipstick doesn't emphasize lines and flakes. I uploaded a picture of it with my fair, yellow-undertoned skin
Very good red lipstick for high end and drug store! For me this red is classic and the best it gets at the drugstore! Stays on my lip for a goooood amount of time, glides on smooth and evenly, does not come off patchy, has a stain on the lip which is nice!!
(No 1) This is my perfect red. I am in love with this product, the packaging is simple and gorgeous. The color is rich and intense with great staying power. It balances between the color of a matte with the richness of a satin. It is just a fabulous red with beautiful blue undertones that make your teeth look whiter and is perfect for a retro or mature look. I love pairing it with the Rimmel Red liner.
Perfect red color for me, SUPER pigmented and glides easily like nothing else. Sometimes I moisturize my lips before applying, and it still has great staying power. Love it!
Glides on like a dream. Smells delicious. Gives you a wonderful pop of color. Red is my personal favorite, but I haven't tried any others. Only issue I had was I usually had to reapply after a few hours.
Still searching for my perfect red! I'm an NC25 for reference with yellow tones, I was drawn to this shade because it appeared cool in tone and very pigmented! Typically, red lippies pull very orange or pink on me, never true red as they appear in the tube:/ this one is better than most, but very dry in application, if I don't put lip balm underneath the color clings to every dry patch on my lips...not cute! As long as you put Chapstick on first then you should be fine, and the staying power is really good IMO about 3-4 hours. It smells non-offensively of caramel & vanilla which disappates a few mins after its applied. What keeps this shade from being 5 lippy perfect is that it pulls slightly orange on me...hmmm and is a bit tricky to apply due to its drying factor. Otherwise, it's a bold shade that is great for a wild night out and can be muted down for everyday work settings, simply blot with a tissue and put clear gloss over the top for a polished work look. Won't repurchase cuz I'm still looking for a more impressive red!
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.
