|(top row - Baby Doll lacquer, Red Lizard - bottom: Manhunt, Fire Down Below)|
This is a poppy red and frankly, I can see myself using this throughout the year. In the palette it looks bright tomato red but it goes on sheer and lovely.
It's like a cherry stain - like a cherry tomato stain actually. I have a fondness for cherry glosses and stains. Since it's a sheer finish, don't expect long last wear time. I reapplied after my 2 cups of morning coffee (yes, 2) but it does leave a really nice stain on the lips - no unattractive red lip lines in the crevices. If I'd have to guess, I'd say that I got a good 2 1/2 hours of wear time. I applied a little before 6:30 AM and reapplied again around 8:45 AM after eating breakfast.
I am really pleased with this red and I can't wait to try out the other two. I even like the Baby Doll lip lacquer - not only is it on the thick side but it's also a baby pink that works well on top of the reds!
