It reminds me of OPI 5 apples tall. I think it's one coater. Nice bright colour without looking too cheap.

This must be my all time favourite lipstick from Mac. Such a beautiful plummish colour. I love this for a semi-vamp look. It stays on for a couple of hours. My only problem is I couldn't find a lip liner matching this.

Also, Nars Afghan Red is a similar colour... It is between Captive and Craving and it stays on long and has a very good texture.

I can't believe how beautiful this colour is! I had tried a couple of Nars lipsticks and the dry texture and the look on my lips had put me off.
I wanted a lovely semi-vamp shade for Spring and decided to give it a go and I am in love. The texture is smooth, it looks gorgeous on my lips. It doesn't feel dry to me.
I was afraid the colour might be too mauve and look a bit drab …

I would give this 5 star if it lasted a little longer.
I felt this is a mix between Alien and Flowerbomb. Liqorice and anaise gives this a little more originality. The drydown is mostly caramel though.

Sadly I purchased this without giving it a good try. I was ok with the intense opening and the fact that it smells like something my grandma used to use. By that I mean it's an old-fashioned scent. However what I didn't anticipate is the shrill mothball/ naphthalene middle and base notes. Omg, what was I thinking.
Still 2 lippies because it is a courageous attempt from the brand.

This is a dupe for Guerlain Vega. But in much less pleasant quality level.
How I wanted to love this! It is runny and thin, if you put a little more, then it becomes uneven, you brush and brush to even it out with no avail. You need at least 3 coats and you can still see the colour is uneven. Expensive mistake!
