This it a beautiful dusty rosy pink which is great as an everyday wear. But it might look totally different on different people, like it can be pinker, redder or browner depending on your skin tone. It can flatter on a lot of skin tones. Belongs to the Creamsheen family, and thus it is creamy in texture and leaves a gorgeous sheen to lips. It applies evenly without tugging and pulling, is perfectly moisturizing and keeps lips soft for hours. It has a rich color pay off. Two swipes are enough for a full coverage.

The best bet at a fierce, bright red lip for ladies with deeper skin tones is the Estee lauder pure colour long lasting lipstick in red tango. It is super saturated brick red shade with warm brown undertones , as the finish says , there is no shimmer or glitter just high glossy sheen to it .

It’s true to its name; a beautiful magenta- a neutral deep, deep pink. It’s a bright shade but totally wearable. It will totally brighten up even the darkest of the skin tones.

One swipe is enough to cover the pigmentation on highly pigmented lips.
