Every time I wear this shade, I receive compliments. I have medium/light olive skin tone and the undertones are perfect on my skin. It leaves a nice, matte finish and bright color. I recommend starting with a light layer of lip balm (Chapstick or otherwise, nothing glossy) as it is a thick and highly pigmented lipstick, but because of that, it lasts a good amount of time.
Ordered because I wanted a New Years resolution to wear more red lipstick. The red is not really a "red" red...more of an orangey red. I am a brunette with fair/medium skin--I don't think it pairs terrible well.
Both my daughter and I can wear this lipstick..She has olive undertones and I have pink undertones! It might get a little too Orange for me but all I have to do is put a tad of pink in it and it's perfect. It STAYS on!
I consider myself a lipstick fanatic. I won't step out the door without first slapping on some lipstick, and let me tell you - this Beauty is Life lipstick is a must-have for any lipstick connoisseur. I knew it was a good one just by feeling how heavy it is in my hand. The formula is so dense and saturated with pigment without being cakey or drying on my lips. Plus the staying power is amazing - I still have color at the end of the day! This red shade is so bright and chipper it will instantly add some serious pizzazz.
