I've forever been searching for a true red that compliments my skin tone. I tried this lipstick and it is fabulous. Every time I wear it I get compliments. It goes on smoothly, and evenly. It lasts for hours and hours, and looks excellent if worn alone, or layered with lip gloss of any kind, or even layered with other colors of lipstick.
The only negative about this particular lipstick is that it tends to feel dry on the lips. I often put a layer of lipgloss over it simply to keep my lips feeling moist. It is also a very matte color, so a bit of shine on top makes it even more vibrant and eye-catching. This is an excellent color for the holidays, I look forward to wearing it through wintery events, and dressing it up with even a glittery gloss for special occasions.
