A Red Lipstick for ALL Occasion!



I almost do not wear Red lipsticks nowadays.

Not because I am not a fan of the shade but because I spend most of the time waiting for my son in school and wearing bright red lipstick would look a bit too much, I tend to shy away to more nudes and browns.  There were so many days I find myself looking pale because I always forget to apply lipstick on due to rushing.

Now, if there's one red lip color that I can ACTUALLY wear without looking like I'm attending a party, there's one red lipstick that I'm reaching out because I can control application to a light bright red, medium bright red or deep dark red.  All you have to do is to layer the lip color and Voila!  You've got a red lipstick for all occasion!

RED, HOT and MATTE! This sexy, longwearing* lip color glides on creamy thensets to a soft matte finish. This universal red takes any gals’ look from so-so to oh-sosexy. Comes complete with custom tapered brush for precision application.

This red lipstick is housed in a cute black plastic container, it comes with a nifty brush that actually works!  It may be a bit too short for my liking but I like how it can precisely apply the bold lip color from container to my lips giving pan-to-lips real color!

Swatch:
The red is a perfect red in my opinion.  It has the right amount of blue and orange tone making this a perfect red color for ALL skin tones!  The effect will look different though for YOU and ME but it was tested by Us beauty bloggers with different skin tones (worn with fellow Beauty Bloggers Angela, Jackie and Alyssa, and we were a mix bunch of morena, fair, medium and olive complexion!) it looked amazing!  Different on each one of us but the end result was worth it!

Benefit They're Real Red On is creamy, highly pigmented and lasts for more than 4 hours with eating and drinking.  It fades on my lips midday but retouching is not an issue as I actually enjoy taking this product along with me every single day!  

The best part?  It is indeed highly moisturizing, the effect is matte but it gives a nice hydrated lips at the center of my lips making the effect look 3D.  Look how it also whitens my teeth!

I know I may be a bit too late with this review as this was launch holiday of last year!  But hey, a good red lip color that works for almost ALL skin tones is definitely worth mentioning!

I'm not sure if they are still available at Benefit Stores locally but do check with them!  If they still have stocks, grab one and thank me later! :D

How do you like my red lip color from Benefit?
Do you agree this color is perfect for the holidays too?
