I finally caved and bought this beautiful orange red liquid lipstick. I had seen other beauty bloggers and makeup artists rave about the pigment and colour but tried to convince myself that I didn't need another orange red. MAC Lady Danger is one of my all time favourite orangey reds but it is very bright and I often find myself saving it for just nights out. Hourglass Riviera has very similar tones but there is something a little less neon and bright about this colour making it much more wearable for day time. I have become a little obsessed with this colour and love to wear a simple coat of mascara, contoured cheeks and a swipe of this on the lips for a statement daytime look.
The texture is liquid like a creamy gloss but pigmented to the extreme. Very little product is needed to coat the lips in opaque colour. The product then dries to an almost matte finish and has fantastic staying power. As with all long lasting products it can become a little too dry and I will suggest use lip balm prior to use just to condition the lips and avoid any cracking however it really does last.
I will definitely be trying more colours from the range as I have been so impressed with the formula and it is so different to anything else I own! Have you tried them and if so what colour shall I get next?
