Received two lipsticks as a birthday gift and I am super disappointed in both of them. Aside from the heavy packaging which granted is very nice, I don't see what the hype is all about. The shade 'Love' is meant to be a bright coral, but it really is neon pink. Not very flattering and quite difficult to wear. 'Affection' described as a pale red, is also just pink, more wearable, but it's not red at all. Lipsticks themselves are very dry and drag on the lips. They don't feel moisturizing and aren't very comfortable to wear. Also in both lipsticks, there were unrefined pigments/ingredients, you'd expect a $78 lipstick to be smooth but you can see and feel the grainy pigments.
I have a few shades - KW Red, Adore, Affection and Love. KW Red and Adore are both gorgeous reds, the former slightly brighter and more pink. Affection is my everyday pink lipstick and Love is a bright neon pink (not my favourite). These lipsticks are quite dry and I find applying with a lip brush works best. Staying power is great and they feel comfortable on - not too creamy, not too matte.
I've been looking for a perfect pink for me that suits to my skin type then I found this ( EMPOWER) , I really love the packaging, the gorgeous tube, and lovely texture. I will purchase the KW Red next time. :)
I've been looking for the perfect organic red lipstick for a while. Finally found it with Kjaer Weis's Adore! Swatches online make it look a bit darker than it is in real life, it's a classic red that can be worn blotted on for a more natural look, or layered on for the evening. I think it's one of the nicest red shades out on the market, not just in the organic market, but across the whole beauty market! The only thing I'd say is that the bullet is very hard and it's definately not a moisturizing lipstick. However, it is comfortable to wear and lasting time is good too.
