I just got this yesterday but already I am really in love with this lipstick. While it’s not “long wearing”, the wear for something this light and creamy isn’t bad. This new “huggable” formula feels really nice on the lips. And this colour is just outstanding -flattering, wearable, beautiful red. It’s a shame this isn’t a permanent product.
Red Necessity is described as a “deep warm wine.” It’s a cool-toned, medium-dark raspberry red. It had semi-opaque color coverage–more color than most of the other shades in the line-up–and wore well for five hours and left behind a soft, pinky-red stain. Dior Minuit (LE, $36.00) is mor ematte, brighter. MAC Prepare for Pleasure (LE, $16.00) is more matte, less pink. NARS Luxembourg (P, $25.00) is more matte. MAC Love Goddess (LE, $16.00) is deeper. MAC Scan-delicious (LE, $19.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches.
