First, I am a cool brunette. Lana looks spectacular one me. It shows up one me as a Rosy color, to me it is somewhere between red and pink, but definitely Rosy! If I used a red lip liner, instead of nude, it probably would have been more red.
Next, It lasted all day on me and my lips never felt dried out.
I think this is a color that could work for most people, it really is flattering.
Great color, but flimsy
Love the color - I bought Grace - but I ordered it once, returned it after it broke after 1 use, and now my new one broke too! Wish it were better quality.
Lighter than I wanted but not a bad lipstick
This lipstick had great reviews and I've been searching for a certain shade of red so simone seemed like it might be it. It wasn't. It looks darker in the picture and the description says "crimson" but it's more of a candy apple red. It's not orangy which is good but it wasn't the deep red I was looking for. It still looks pretty good with my skin tone and the formula is good so it's not a total waste but I feel a little cheated by the description and picture.
Finally found my perfect red
The guidelines were super helpful for finding a shade of red that goes with my pale skin and dark hair. I've always worried about looking too clown like but the Simone shade is perfect and the lipstick itself goes on great. Happy!
Whitney Shade - not flattering!
I purchased the shade "whitney" because I was looking for a pretty pink to wear on a daily basis. This is an unflattering hot pink that I'm suspecting only someone from the ages of 12 to 22 could pull off (and only at night)! Sending this back immediately. There is a "blue" undertone in it. I certainly would never pay this much for a trendy shade like this. Go buy a $3 Wet-n-Wild one!
