Good price, great pigmentation, not to bright/dark, and nice packaging.

My favorite red in my collection. Very dramatic. The photos make it look brighter than it should, it's kind of similar to YouTube dark red, but that may just be because my skin tone.

My last red shade was discontinued by Maybelline and I hate buying red lipstick because it never fits my olive skin tone. My sister-in-law had on this gorgeous shade of red few weeks ago and we are similar in skin color so I asked her what she was wearing. She said Maybelline Red Revival #645. I promptly went to CVS to buy it right away and I love it. It's such a great shade of red that I honestly think could work for most skin tones. I find it a bit bright for work so I mute it down with some Nars orgasm blush beforehand. Otherwise- I wore this several times and often times I can skip my eye makeup because this color is so striking. It's a really lovely shade. I recommend it!

I actually only purchased this lipstick for a themed party, it was cheap and and the only pure red lipstick i could find at the time. Colour is lovely, but application was frustrating. The lipstick runs if you apply it in a hurry and hard to apply with precision around the cupids bow area without a lip brush and lip liner. As I usually apply this on the run, i usually end up with uneven lips when applying this from the tube.

This red is the perfect compliment to my green eyes. It is very pigmented and for the most part has really good staying power which is good for me since in between classes I am drinking coffee like it's going out of style. I find that it's perfect for application with either the bullet or a small lip brush. I also think it's just all in all a good brand I love Maybelline's lipsticks. And, generally have good luck with most of their products

This is my favourite red lipstick. I have rimmel Kate moss in 111 and 10 and... the third escapes me... But this is my favourite. Deeper red shade, moisturizing, doesn't sink into my dry lips.

I really like this shade. On my lips it shoes up red for sure. It also goes on smoothly and evenly, which is a must when dealing with red lipsticks. I like wearing this lipstick on its own, and sometimes I like lining my lips with a darker red color and then wearing it over that (which I will be doing very often now in the fall), and it looks really pretty! I am a huge fan of the Maybelline lipstick line and I am glad I purchased this color.

I am SO IN LOVE with this red lipstick! Come fall, red lipstick is really the only lipstick colour that I wear, along with oxblood colours and deep purpley tones and I only even use high end red lipstick. I really wanted to try a drugstore option though since $35 a tube which is the price of my favourite red lipstick (Femme Rouge in Icon by Hourglass) and I chose this one. I seriously love it, it is absolutely gorgeous. It has a really neutral undertones so it can work for people who are both yellow based and pink based, it lasts a really long time (mind you, I have a very extensive red lip routine I go through anyways) and it doesn't leave my lips feeling dry at all. This lipstick is an amazing drugstore find and I am seriously so impressed.

I bought this color and Maybelline's Red Revolution last fall/winter because I was looking for a perfect red. In my opinion, this color looks like a bright, true red with my skin tone (Red Revolution seemed to fuchsia, so I returned it). I just broke this one out again after I put it away for the summer months, and it didn't dry out at all...the formula seems the same as when I first used it last year. However, it has always been a bit difficult to paint this color on without it going all over and outside of the line of my lips, especially if I use it straight up from the bullet and without a brush. However, blotting helps.

This isn't my favorite red, and I thought it was a bit overpriced for being a drugstore lipstick (there are several other brands that are high quality and cheaper) so I gave it 3 out of 5 stars. I'm not completely sure if i would buy it again....maybe if the price decreased, I would.
