I don’t really wear red lipstick, so pray, why do I keep buying red lipstick?
I guess I see people in their perfect red lipstick and want to find mine. I’ve not given up! I saw this on a Korean make up artist and decided to buy it to try. Clio is a mid ranged Korean brand (so the lipsticks are more around the £10-£15 range) but the products are generally very good quality. I also love Lee Hyori who is a Korean pop star – I ADORE HER – and she is their spokesperson!
Anyway back to lipstick! This shade is no. 16, Red Liar:
A bright beautiful bold red! Is it a blue or orange undertone? I can’t tell. It’s seems like it’s somewhere between the two!
Tension Lip is a very creamy, very pigmented rich formula and there is no shimmer or glitter in this formula. It’s a perfect creamy red lipstick, and as it’s pigmented you do have to be careful with application and perhaps use a lip liner or a clear liner to keep it in. It’s not that it’s very ‘bleedy’ but there is a shiny-cream element to it which is not for everyone.
On me it feels a bit pinkish actually – I like it! Although it is bright I think it’s quite nice without too much on the eyes.
It’s also quite long lasting and leaves a slightly stain. No complaints. I would buy this in other shades too.
I paid about £9 for this on eBay.
What do you think? Do you like this kind of red?
