I love this lipstick. Its my favourite for day to day red wear, still true red but somehow more subtle, maybe its the warmer tones. I can wear this to work and it will stay on all day as long as I don’t eat something too greasy.
I have very pale pinky skin and this looks just as good on my dark olive skinned friend as it does me.
lovely color, suits my skin really well. love that it can be applied super sheerly for a pretty stain, or layered on for a pin-up look. I’ve worn it numerous times, and always get tons of compliments. Since it is matte in texture, it is not the most hydrating lipstick out there; make sure to apply lip balm a few hours before you plan to apply this lipstick.
Viva Glam I Lipstick is a medium-dark, slightly muted, red with brown undertones and a slight cool tone to it. It has rich, opaque color coverage, and the consistency is lightly creamy and glides on well. Viva Glam I has been a classic red for me for years; it’s a retro, toned down red that works on a lot of skin tones. It wore well for six hours and left behind a stain; it was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS 413 BLKR (LE, $26.00) is darker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Role Play (P, $18.00) is similar. Giorgio Armani The Red (400) (P, $32.00) is less matte. NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is lighter. MAC Such Flare (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. Guerlain Luxure (P, $49.50) is similar. Make Up For Ever #44 (P, $19.00) is warmer, brighter. See comparison swatches.
