What can I say of this classic that anyone hasn't said?
It was my first lipstick and used it until MAC Opera came along. I am a bold person and started to wear makeup really really late in life (39). I wanted to make an statement to myself and what better way than a red lippie. I didn't know much of red lippies, but thanks to father Google... I saw pictures of NC43-NC45 girls using it and fell in love.
Yeah, it is drying. Yeah, it is difficult to apply. Balm, balm, balm. Nuxe's matte one (reve de mel, which i also reviewed) works wonderfully with this lipstick. You can also use a lip pencil such as MAC cherry, besides the rubby woo one.
It doesn't transfer once set. At least on me. I've used it for 4-5 h without problems, after applying over balm or lip pencil, of course. As Nuxe's balm is matte, i frequently apply it over RR too.
The color. Oh the color! It is an elegant red for day and night. It is the lipstick for all skin colors.
