It was a spontaneous purchase of mine. It hardly ever happens to me that I buy a product without reading reviews or looking through the swatches online to see how it applies, wears and so on. I just went into a store, saw this product and decided that the color would suit me. At that very time I wanted a good everyday wear lipstick, not nude, but more colorful maybe.

Fit and Bond Powder adheres to lips for perfect color and finish that does not fade.
S Hyaluronic Acid Complex and S Hydro-Wrap Vitalizing DE EX deliver rich moisture for smooth shapely-looking lips.
It didn’t make me raving about it. In my opinion the Dior lipsticks looks much more attractive. But I’m not the one who buys lipsticks because of their packages. The lipstick case is glossy and black.
There’s the brand logo on top. The most interesting thing is that the lippie closes with 2 small magnets which are inside of the case. The two parts magnet to each other, featuring a tight closure and eliminating an accidental loss of the top cap. It looks simple, yet elegant!
THE OUTER APPEARANCE OF THE LIPSTICK
The product is beautiful and it has a rather interesting cut, which is a little bit of a problem for me to use.
The bullet has the brand’s name engraved on it.
THE SHADE RD 311 isn’t red! It’s a complicated color, which is really difficult to describe with one word. There’s some pink and coral shade to it as well. It’s so interesting! I think it’ll flatter many girls and will look different on everybody. I bought this lipstick for everyday wear. I can apply it even when I go to work, because the color isn’t too vibrant and it only accentuates my lips.
This is exactly what I wanted!
Choosing the lipstick I was applying it this way (as in the photo) to the crevices on my hands. And this lipstick applied evenly and well on the first go! That means that it’ll perform the same on my lips! This technique of choosing the color has never let me down yet!
THE CONSISTENCY is creamy. The lipstick melts when it touches my lips, ensuring an easy and gliding application.
My lips are bright and the lippie covers their pigment fully. The only gripe is that the inside of my mouth is still visible, but that isn’t such a problem indeed. It applies fuss-free on the first go and I don’t even have to try hard. This is kinda “I did my lip makeup on the go or driving a car and still look fantastic!”
Yes, there are! The lipstick takes care of my lips nicely. When I remove it, my lips feel really comfortable! They look supple, as though I used a lip balm.
Killing! The lippie applies well, it doesn’t crease, settle into fine lines or anything. It’ll easily live through drinking or a snack, but if you have a full meal, then be ready to reapply it. However, if you accidently applied it on your skin, it’ll be a problem then to wash the pigment off. You’ll need to use something wet for sure.
It fades gradually, leaving some pigment on my lips behind.
And now I’ll show you the way it looks on my lips:
Beautiful dewy finish! I adore it!
I’m absolutely delighted with my spontaneous purchase! Have a look at this collection of lippies too!
