I often stay away from darker coloured lipsticks but for some reason this lipstick stuck out to me. If applied lightly it gives a slight berry stain but full application gives a glamorous vampy look that will definitely stand out. Its a satin finish so its not as drying out as a matte finish. WARNING simply removing the lipstick will not get rid of the stain it will be present for some time after, this can be seen as an advantage folks.
It can be described as a deep wine colour but has tones of red and purple in it. Its the sort of lipstick that will suit any skin tone.
I am an NC45 in MACs studiofix fluid. Heres a swatch on my skin.
Its a great winter colour but it definitely highlights the golden undertones in my skin tone. I even matched my shoes to my new lipstick colour.
