This is one of my few red lipsticks and it's my favourite one. The colour is a true red on my pigmented pink lips, (though when I wipe it off it leaves an almost coral-y stain), and the formula stays put and does not bleed at all. It is quite moisturising for me, and I am the type that is addicted to lipbalm. I can't quite remember the price of this but it wasn't cheap, like …Read more

Opium Red is the perfect warm-leaning "true red" for those with warm yellow-neutral undertones (NC35) like myself. I don't like blue-based reds, as they have a tendency to turn a fuschia-pink on my lips -- I want a red lipstick to *stay* red. Warm reds brighten my complexion; this is the red for other MAC NCs out there who want to pull off that 1950s, statement red lip. Note: it …Read more

This is my HG red lipstick. At first when I put it on, I thought it was too orange for me, but once I got out of doors into natural light, it was a beautiful dramatic shade of red. It glides on like a dream and is so lightweight I forget I'm wearing it. I've found out though, like most dramatic lipsticks, I have to wear lipliner with it (I prefer the clear lipliner from Revlon) or else …Read more

Took my red lipsticks with me to the YSL counter to compare after reading the reviews, as I am looking for a daytime version of MAC's Viva Glam I. Sadly, Opium Red pulled very, very orange on me. It was a no go. Even the YSL Sales Rep was shaking her head no. However, I swatched the Rouge Pur Couture # 14, Rouge Feu, and it was what I was looking for, a neutral red that leaned only …Read more

This is my HG lippy! For a night out anyways, cant exactly wear it through the day in my line of work! The colour is a classic deep spicey red, which i prefer to the usual fire engline pillar box colours! Its not cheap, but it is worth every penny, as it always looks amazing! It is very moisturising and has a lovely creamy texture that lasts all day, although with most lippys you do need to top …Read more

Sigh. I so hoped this was going to be my "it" red, but no. The formula is great but it's simply too bright for me to wear before sundown. I'm sure it will be very pretty for evening.

I only wear reds in evenings out or for some event, however I pull them off quite well, altough with my light colouring (blonde, pale in winter with very light blue geen eyes) a red lippie is very evident and screams out too loud for daywear.
I love YSL Rouge Pur; I have a bunch of them so there is no discussion about the quality: one of the best lippies around, same level of Dior, Kanebo …

If I could have sex with this lipstick, I would. Sigh.

I recently found myself watching a movie, in pajamas, with henna in my hair for about five hours...and I would not take off my lipstick. In fact, I reapplied just because. I considered sleeping in it.

1. It is a perfectly gorgeous shade of red. Neutral, but bright. I can't imagine it being unflattering on ANY skin …

This lipstick is amongst the best that I have...and I have PLENTY! I usually prefer wearing nudes, pinks and berries, but after reading the reviews here, I decided to get YSL Rouge Pur in Opium Red. It's the most expensive lipstick in my arsenal... haha...


The other reds that I own are from Bobbi Brown and Estee Lauder. I hardly wear the Bobbi Brown reds (which I have in a …

Let me preface this review by saying I rarely wear lipstick as I find it to be too drying for my lips. In addition, the glosses I wear tend to be on the neutral side and usually on the browner side of the palette (i.e. Chanel Glossimer in Giggle). Hoping to pull off a 1940s Silver Screen Goddess look for my upcoming wedding, I have started the search for The Perfect Red. Based on reviews, and …Read more
