Eureka Moment: Another Red Lipstick That Works

A year ago, I bought my first ever red lipstick in the name of MAC Russian Red.  It was a decision I've made because I wanted to own a lipstick that works for almost all skin color and I heard MAC Russian Red does that part!  Having my own MAC Russian Red does not mean I will stop my hunt for the perfect color minus the hefty price.  After a year, I've finally found another good find!  It's not the exact dupe of MAC Russian Red but its shade of red that works for almost anybody who has lips!  Well..preferably, Female!  *laughs*

Maybelline's Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor 
in Summer Sunset


I cannot categorize the shade under warm or cool as it's just in between.  Very pigmented and moisturizing and gives a good coverage in one swipe!  The color is quite hard to explain as it could be on the shade of red or deep pink on different lighting.  This lip color gives dimension to your lips and it doesn't come off too bright  or strong!  This lip color works  like no other!

Check out Summer Sunset on my lips without lip gloss


Priced at Php299.00 (approx $6.50), nothing to lose for sure!  You've got yourself a bright lipstick that works on any day!  Check out the photo of me and colleague Shanna and Mags.  We rock Summer Sunset and it looks different on each one of us right?


Have you purchased your own red lipstick?
What's the brand and shade name?
I'd love to hear from you!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
