A gorgeous true red lipstick. I didn't think it'd work on me, as it's sometimes described as orange red (NW20, neutral leaning cool, slightly olive, dark brown hair, blue eyes, pink pigmented lips, normally avoid orange lips like the plague). It's not the safest red for me (more blue based is safer), but it works most of the time, and when it does it makes my eyes and skin sing. A power red.
It's extremely comfortable and has a satin finish. Although the 16 hour claim is a bit exaggerated, it does last me the better part of the day (loses some sheen after careful eating). Soft and easy to apply without over applying. Doesn't dry my lips and feels good, although isn't moisturising. Half a star off for the longevity claims, and because I find the sweet scent a bit cloying, and it lingers.
