I pretty much wear red lipstick to go with my retro image, this is one tube in my arsenal. It’s a beautiful deep red but the formula is kind of drying and doesn’t reapply well. Nevertheless it lasts all day and doesn’t smear too much which are big pluses. Try it out if you want a classy red.

I loved this blush, although I do think it was kind of bright. Unfortunately it fell apart in my makeup bag so I’m going to have to keep it at home. It doesn’t travel well. I read about this color on a beauty page on Facebook I think.

I bought colourpop lippie Stix in Taurus as a dupe for besame chocolate kiss and I’m quite pleased with the results. It’s dark on my fair skin, has a matching lip liner, and a moisturizing feel on the lips. I’m looking forward to wearing it out.

I bought the red fire starter based on the recommendation of someone in my vintage makeup group. I wore it to work today and did not have to reapply once. It’s a great starter Red.

I purchased two of these as a recommendation from my vintage makeup group, cherry cobbler and red velvet cake. The cherry cobbler is a bit bright but I do like the formula, and the bright red doesn't look bad. I'm a big fan of liquid lipsticks, and these are as lightweight as people say they are.

I purchased 7 products from colourpop , including london fog and reign satin lips. I haven't worn them to work yet, only running errands and doing chores on the weekend, but both colors are very flattering to my NW15 complexion. I'm looking forward to seeing how my customers receive them at work.

I bought this as a dupe for besame chocolate kiss to wear with a chocolate brown polka dot dress.

I like the formula and the color but it’s not dramatic enough for me. I usually wear red lipstick but wanted to try something new.

I got it from amazon as it was a lower price then at cvs.

I don't like the color but that's because I usually wear red. I bought because it's a classic. I've got nw15 complexion. I wore it with a purple dress. I'm thinking it would probably look better with black and white like another reviewer had mentioned. The formula and the tube and the price are great.

I wore this to work this week for the first time and was not disappointed. I believe a customer even complimented me on it. I think it's a cool red not a coral. It compliments my nw15 complexion. If you're looking for a vintage red you can put on in a hurry, try this one out.

I bought these in kitten heels, cherry skies and vintage so far and I love them. I wore cherry skies to work today and got a least two compliments from customers on my lipstick. Based on the reviews I've read most reviewers are going for either a neutral look or a goth look. If you look in vintage makeup communities these lipsticks are more appreciated.
