A perfect red lipstick? Michael Todd Naked Kiss Lipstick in Affection Review and Swatches

Another item I was sent was Michael Todd’s Naked Kiss lipstick in Affection , a bold true red.

They say:

The newest, hottest formula! Naked Kiss glides on beautifully and feels absolutely weightless. Our special Anti-Aging Concentrate treats your lips throughout the day while moisturizers keep lips soft and super kissable!!

First off the barrel is shorter than your average lipstick – I’ve decided I like this because I like things nice and compact!


The formula is better than I expected; its very pigmented, it’s very soft and creamy today but without the potential to bleed everywhere like this Dolce & Gabbana Red.


I am quite fussy with my reds; I favour orange reds over blue or yellow based reds just because I think they flatter my warm skintone…Having said that this lipstick is not the usual red I would pick up but I think it works. It helps that the formula is super creamy and just melts into the lips not looking creasy at all…

Oh that’s another important point. I think it makes the lips look healthy which is important when your wearing something as bold as this. I’ll always choose a creamy red over a matte one because my lips chap so easily.

On the face:


I likey! This could be my red for the winter!

What do you think of this shade?
