#53 Lipstick from The Body Shop. This shade is great for those with warm/yellow skintones like me.
Dont let this lipstick fool you. It looks dark but once you apply it on, the color glides on smoothly and gives you a sheer shade of berry red,almost like a gloss.
What is good about it is you can build the color on the intensity that you like. You can wear this type of red during the day or at night.
The above picture shows you the berry red shade you can get if you want a more intense color. I just applied the liptick straight from the bullet. It has a natural shine that I like. Im not really a fan of matte lipsticks because my lips is dry all the time.
The picture above shows you how it looks like if you want a BITTEN look.
For a BITTEN look-Apply the lipstick with a blotting effect and smudge the lipstick on to your entire lips.then get a lipbrush and then apply the color at the inner part of your lower lip.
This will emphasize the redness of your inner lip, and will look like you have just eaten a red candy or chiklet gum.LOL. thats a bitten look.
For a sheer effect: Use a lip brush and use one coat. This gives you a gloss like red stain because it has a slight shine.
For matte effect:Dab with powder or blot with tissue and apply again.
For stain effect:Apply the lipstick using a lipbrush then blot with tissue. You nee to remove the lipstick on top of your lips.This will leave a slight RED STAIN, and this is what you can stain effect.
Verdict? A very versatile kind of red. If you are not use to wearing red lipstick, this is a great alternative. And you can wear it in many different ways. It also moisturizes and conditions my lips.
Good price at P800 and can be bought at any The Body shop boutiques.
