This is definitely a very creamy, smooth lipstick that goes on easily and looks opaque in just one layer. I found this one didn’t bleed on me (though not too much does, just a heads up–I’m not the best person to test for that!), and I found it pretty easy to get a defined look without a lip brush. I’d say this lipstick lives up to a lot of the claims Lancome makes — the shade is richly pigmented, has a beautiful satiny look, and there’s no way to say this color isn’t saturated.
It’s also very moisturizing without having a lot of slip. I’ve noticed that some lipsticks that are very moisturizing also glide and move around a bit–and may even have a tendency to bleed–but this one stays put. I get about five or six hours of wear with this shade, too!
The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!
