Yet another 29 Cosmetic lipstick purchase that is a color disappointment. Because this is not sold anywhere near me in the retail market I am forced to purchase sight unseen. That said this color on me looks very common and sadly rather cheap. Described as a shimmery rose berry; in the tube this looks like a slightly shimmery wearable mauve rose. On my lips this looks like a violet mauve with loads of fine gold shimmering particles. As this wears off my lips look like they have residual violet purplish bruises. I think this color could work on some but on me, not. Also, this isn't emollient as described which also was disappointing, in fact, my lips actually felt quite dry after removing this. The ongoing theme of 29 Cosmetics is all things wine, grape and vineyard related. Clearly these colors are too cool plum toned to be appropriate for my pale skin tone. Looking at the color selections none of the offerings seem like anything special. Pros: Chic packaging and contains SPF 20.

I received this as a sample with an online order from NM. I am 40+ and have a fair olive complexion with brown hair and eyes. This lipstick is very moisturizing and leaves your lips feeling soft and nourished. The color on me is about two shades darker than MLBB and is an extremely wearable everyday shade. I ordered a full tube directly from 29 Cosemetics since NM was out of stock. The price of $24 is on the high side, but the results are so worth it!
