Would you purchase again: yes
All of the entries for the year 2020 were completed before March 2020. Most items were bought in, or before, 2019. And so, despite the pandemic where buying makeup is definitely a lower priority, I'm still publishing these posts.
This applies a little clearer and lighter than it looks. It’s a deep barely-berry red. If you’re looking for “blood of my enemies” depth of red, this isn’t quite that dark. However, it is a great deeper lip shade! It applies nicely, and it doesn’t have a greater-than-average tendency to feather like some deeper lipsticks might.
If you’re looking for a liner for this shade, there currently isn’t one available from Maybelline. However, NYX Cosmetics’ Cherry Skies is nearly the exact same shade, just barely (almost imperceptibly) lighter.
