More Remarkably Rose
Had I not researched this product online, sighted swatches and the application on other customers and visited a store to test the colour and actual redness - this is hardly a red as you'd expect. The brand should reconsider renaming as without testing and researching you'd assume it was a standard bold red lipstick. However, the colour is remarkable in that it is a mauve/plum with some tawny tones. A beautiful cooler shade for cooler months. I'm a medium skin tone with warm undertones, the colour suits perfectly. Easy to apply, lasts about 2-3 hours and that is with regular sipping of water from a drink bottle, I like that as the lipstick wears off it's not noticeable in terms of an outline. The bullet takes a while to get used to and I tend to use the tip of the bullet when I apply versus the angled flattened side which is my prefer style of application, I think I will probably end up flattening using in this way. I used the lipstick with a lip brush and directly, for everyday I apply direct and it tends to be a more natural application and ok without lip pencil. For a more deeper defined look I outline with a nude or a mauve lip pencil and apply the lipstick with the brush. Consistency of the product is smooth, moisturising and long lasting. Can't fault this product but would suggest a name change as it's confusing. Otherwise this will be a regular in my make up bag.
