Gives the lips a juicy red sheen without dying my mouth that 'weird, pink-red' that stains do. It's moisturizing and sheer and I can slather on multiple layers without looking like a hussy, which is a good thing because I can't say enough how I love the texture and its moisturizing properties.
This is a great find for us fair-skinned ladies that want to wear a red lipstick without looking overly 'done.'
Asked for this for Christmas because I'm a sucker for good packaging and marketing, but really this is nothing special. Looks like Cherry Chapstick or the Lipsmackers in Dr. Pepper flavor and has equivalent staying power. It is indeed very moisturizing, and has a pretty tint, but again, this is essentially a $20 lip balm....
Really pretty colour - gives a 'juicy' sheen and a natural rosy flush to pale lips. It's a pink-red on me and sheer enough for work wear - but it's not sheer bordering on invisible. Colour reminds me of Paula Dorf 'cherish', but is less pigmented. Texture is less waxy than Clinique 'almost lipstick' (although I wouldn't mind a slimmer Clinique-style tube for precision.) Staying power isn't great, but I suppose that's to be expected from a sheer lipstick. Wouldn't mind it being a bit cheaper, too!
UPDATE: Finding this a bit drying - the sheen wears off far too quickly, as well. The search continues...
Love, LOVE this product!! I love natural, flushed red lips without that lipsticky feel or look. I have never found a product that delivers that just-bitten, pouty red color better!! I like it more than Benetint lip balm, since that is more a pinkish cherry red and this is more a sheer blood red. This is the color I imagined Snow White's lips to be...It is also very moisturizing. In the tube it looks like a deep scarlet red, but do not fear!! It looks very natural, but yet the color is also very red!! I never found a product like this before. You need this if you are a red lipstick girl!!!
This is a pretty, sheer natural looking tinted balm that is a glamorous vivid cherry red in the tube. The packaging is exquisite and the lipstick itself glides on beautifully. It makes my lips look subtly flushed and very pretty. My only gripe is the price and the fact that I wish it was slightly more pigmented, but that said, it is very pretty. I was hoping it would be closer to my beloved and long d/c Clinique Almost Lipstick in Ruby Melt which was a tad redder. I only said I would not re-purchase because I get very similar results from Burt's Bees Lip Balm w/ pomegranate for a tenth of the price of Medieval.
More berry than red on my pigmented lips, and I hate berry shades. The texture is to die for and so I'm very sad about this... will try with a brownish/brick toned liner to see if i can tone it down, but the beauty of a sheer, emollient l/s like this is just to swipe it on with no liner or skill needed. Oh well.
This is the most universal flattering rosy red colour. It's just like the korres wild rose but even better because it's in lipstick form so you don't have to stick your fingers in a pot. The texture is sheer with just the right amount of pigment and it;'s very moisturising. I love that you can put it on lightly for a just natural rosy tint or layer it for a deeper rosy look. I got compliments with people asking what colour I was wearing the first dya of wearing it!
This has already been well described, but here's my take.
The packaging on this is beautiful and chic, and holds up in my makeup bag. The color is a clear rosebud red, neither too cool nor too warm. It has the texture and feel of a high end lip balm, and while the color is sheer, it's clear by no means.
This is a wonderful MLBB look, appropriate for school, work, or a night out on the town.
I LOVE this product, it's very moisturising and is a beautiful colour.
I'm a big fan of this product. It feels very light on the lips, which I like in the summer. The color is very subtle but very pretty. For these reasons I give it a high rating. The texture is really unique and feels so good but not sticky or creamy or like lip conditioner. I think it's overpriced but I have to admit I'll buy it again.
