Way too clown-ish. I like bright red lipsticks, like Revlon's Classic Red. Maybe it would look better on cool skintones. It just does not look good on yellow skin tones. Would not buy, especially at $25. By far my favorite eco lip conditioners are RMS lip shine line. I do like Blossom Lady (mauve pink) and Bang Bang (nice subtle red) in the Ilia lip conditioner line, though. Very nice colors.

I'm actually on my second tube of this.
On me, Crimson & Clover comes off as a strong deep red with neutral undertones. It can be sheer, natural red with a carefully light swipe and then swiped more for a deeper red look. It dries off with a slight sheen. Does not look glossy at all. Almost dries into a semi-matte look.
Ilia's Tinted Lip Conditioners are meant to be a lip balm/lip stick combination. (Think Revlon's Lip Butters gone green and eco-friendly. Add a little chic packaging and you have Ilia's Tinted Lip Conditoners.) Because of this, they are fairly moisturizing. After 2-4 hours however, I have to reapply with lip balm. Not sure why.
The Wear Time:
Like I said, the color stays on forever until you try to take it off. It does fade from it's full effect, but the color is so strong, it won't really fade all the way. You'll see what I mean when you get your hands on one of these babies. (Note: I have these in other colors and this one is the longest lasting. The other lighter colors do not last as long.)
I really love the formula. It isn't drying and can be made sheer or opaque for a full color effect.
