Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish - Alarm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/30/2018

I have read the other reviews with interest. I think reds appear as different shades on different people. To me, Alarm is not a true red. It is a bit bright for my tastes and has too much pinky blue in it. But it is nowhere as blue as Russian Red. It is not a color that I can wear alone, but I wear it all the time. How is that? I mix it with brown. Works every time. I usually mix it with Revlon …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Lipstick - Alabama

5.0

Alabama is not really bright but it certainly has depth. It is almost a true red with a touch of brown. It is rather muted but still has a lot of color. It is matte but not a drying matte. An outstanding shade and an outstanding texture. I love it.

Lipstick - REVLON - Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor

I am shocked to see no rave reviews for Adobe or Arabica. Not even a mention. They are both gorgeous reds. Adobe is a clear true red that goes on so smoothly. Arabica is a deeper red with some brown. I love them both and feel so fortunate to have found them.

Lipstick - Dior - Absolute Matte

5.0

Absolute Matte is a surprising shade. It looks orangey red in the tube, but it is actually more of a true red, although it is definitely not a blue red. It is matte, but it isn't too matte. I have to take care to apply it, and a little gloss helps, but it isn't particularly drying and certainly does not drag on the lips like many other matte lipsticks do. I am quite pleased with it.

Lips - Mary Kay - Mary Kay Signature Amber Suede Lipstick

5.0

Jan/30/2018

Amber Suede is a gorgeous shade. It is between brown and red, but it has a unique twist, almost with a hint of shimmer. It goes on so smoothly, even without a liner. Can you tell I really love it?

It has been discontinued, but there are many for sale on eBay. But beware. The old formula in the silver tube is a lighter shade -- more beigey brown and less red -- than the newer formula in …

Polishes - L'Oreal Paris - Color Riche Nail Color 320 Marvelous

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/17/2017

First of all, the name of the color is Mauvelous, not Marvelous. This is the best color of nail polish ever. I don't see any mauve or pink in it. All I see is a perfect natural color. Very very flattering. What I like best about the color is that it goes with anything. I can wear red, purple, pink, or any other color, and it won't clash. I have been wearing it for years. I love to …Read more

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - Long Last Lipstick - Red Red Red

Apr/19/2017

I love red lipstick, but I prefer that it not be too bright. I own dozens of red lipsticks. I most gravitate toward brownish reds, and I really dislike (hate?) pinky reds -- that is lipsticks that look red in the tube but turn pink once they are applied. When I wear red clothing, I like to wear red lipstick that matches. Finding matching red is quite the task. But Red Red Red is usually a great …Read more

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Hello Sailor

I did it again. I got taken in by the hype. I've looked at this stuff in the store many times and swatched it on my hand only to see, well, nothing. But I foolishly watched lots of videos where lovely young women put it on and swooned and carried on like it was the greatest invention ever. There was the QVC video interview with Poppy King, and she actually looked like she was wearing it and …Read more

Lipstick - Tarte Cosmetics - LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Tint in Fiery

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/29/2015

I am shocked. I love, love, love red lipstick, but most so-called "true reds" turn very pink on me, which doesn't make them red at all. I have also had really bad luck with lip crayons. They seem to all be too glossy or have practically no color. So what made me pick this one up while browsing at Ulta? I guess I just wanted to try one more time, and Tarte is such a good brand. So I …Read more
