As a non lipstick wearer I took a chance on this one. Being a fair skinned red head with freckles, I have never found a red lipstick that worked for me with out leaving a stain on my lips. Although I was a bit put off by the orange color when it arrived, after applying and letting it set for about 15 minutes, it was a great color on my skin tone. I was pleasantly surprised by the texture and long lasting ability of this product. I was expecting it to be a bit more 'hot red' than orange. But overall was pleasantly surprised.
