When I first saw it, I was intimidated by its dark red shade and to be honest, I'd never worn red lips before. But this shade is gorgeous! It actually goes on like a deep raspberry pink colour that's very wearable. It's very creamy and gives a great colour payoff. I find that it's easiest and most precise to apply with a lip brush.

This started my love affair with bright lipsticks and I'm dying for the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection to be released. There's a nice pinkish-red lipstick in that collection :)
