Review: I really like this lipstick, though the color doesn’t flatter my skintone the way it would a lot of people. Shade aside, I think this formula really knocks it out of the park. It’s super glossy and doesn’t require a gloss on top. It’s described as a “satin vibrant red”. I would totally agree. This isn’t a plum red or a coral red. It’s straight up red. Though if I had to lean it one way, it’d be ever-so-slightly orange. My fair skinned friend tried it on and it looked so amazing on her. It made me not want to do the review because I knew how awesome it *didn’t* look on me. But the quality of the lipstick is there. One recommendation though, because this is such a glossy red, you would do well to wear a lip liner to keep this lipstick in it’s place. A winner though, just not for this NC20.


Overall, try before you buy.
