I swapped for this after reading all the raves, and it was exactly what I was looking for -- a wearable, everyday sophisticated red. Absolutely gorgeous, not too bright or "hey, look at my lips!" Classy, but leaves an impression. A++!
If you want to wear red lipstick but thought that you couldn't, try this! I am a pinky-PPP and most red lipsticks look too orange-ish or too bright fuschia-ish but this one is great and the perfect red for me. I agree with the reviewer below who described it as an "innocent" red. I HIGHLY recommend it!
What a sweet color, a very flattering shade of red, made me look sweet not gross at all, i love how comfy it feels on.
Angel Red is not matador red. It is not MAC Russian Red or, ahem, c*cks*cker red. Angel Red is ladylike, sophistocated, subtle red (yes, such a thing is possible). It wears comfortably but not forever, it takes a few coats (apply, blot, repeat) to build up to its full potential, and it is probably best lined in a neutral -- I use Wet 'n' Wild #666. The shiny silver tube is satisfyingly heavy in the hand, and the lipstick does not smell or taste like anything (I'm talking to you, House of Chanel). On days when I fancy myself incredibly chic and possibly French, I wear Angel Red and then try not to stare at myself in every window I pass. continued >>
This is the most wearable red I have ever seen. This is my HG red shade. I have never found anything else that even comes close. It gives you a sweet innocent look but is oh sexy at the same time.
This is a beautiful red that falls into the the "sweet" category. It doesn't have great staying power but it is very hydrating. It is the perfect shade of red if you love red lipgloss but want something that packs a little more of punch and has better staying power. An innocent, juicy red lipstick.
The best red lipstick (not gloss) that I have found thus far. Angel Red is a true red on my neutral PPP skin. Most reds look orange or pink on me, but not this one! The lipstick goes on smooth and creamy and does not dry out my lips. I reach for this color almost every time I want to play up my lips and do neutral eyes. I will repurchase again and again.
This is my favorite red ever. When I am doing a show taking place in the 30's or 40's, this is the color I grab. Very dramatic and looks good on most skin tones. Looks great with a plain face and just black liner and mascara on the eyes. Just terrific!
I love Clinique's Angel Red, too. I have very pale ivory skin and could never wear red lipstick until I found this shade a few years ago. I think the color could be described as a true blue-red, because it has no orange in it whatsoever (a problem I've had with many red shades). Also, this lipstick can applied lightly for a subtle stain or intensified by applying a heavier coat. It looks beautiful with a gold gloss over it. The staying power is ok, and it is moisturizing not drying. This is my staple red lipstick & there's been no need to find another. If you have been unable to wear red lipstick, try this one!
Ok, I'll admit it: I bought this lipstick because it is the same color Nicole Kidman wears in "Moulin Rouge" (my favorite movie). But I love it. It is truly a perfect red, great for pale skin (gives a nice contrast!). Plus, I HATE wearing lipstick - just HATE it, and this isn't so bad. No icky "lipstick taste," pretty light, and this particular color leaves a nice stain. I usually put a layer on, blot it off to stain my lips, put on some lip balm and put another coat on. This way, even whent he initial coat wears off, you still have a staint hat is almost as deep as the original color. I can't speak for all the Different shades, but this is great if you hate lipstick.
