How can explain this in the shortest, simplest possible way possible? If you want the perfect oxblood red lipstick (sans ox blood of course) this little beauty of a lip crayon certainly does the job!
Pigment for days, beeswax rich, easily applicable. A powerhouse of a product. It's a staple in my professional kit. Whether the look is sexy, sultry or downright dirty - I have found a way to use this lip crayon.
I also love the fact that this product won't break the bank, even in an economic downturn.
While the name might claim that it's matte, it isn't as matte of MAC's Ruby Woo by any stretch of the imagination - but compared to the rest of its formulations, it does what it says on the box - and it has excellent staying power. Just ask Jessia!
This matte range comes in six colours - but Napa Vineyard is my favourite. That being said, with spring in the air and all, I have become rather partial to the prettier pinks of this collection. They also have a Gloss Lip Crayon range and the newly launched Lipstick range in 18 colours. While I have yet to try the latter out, I have it on very good authority that they are worthy. (If even on the packaging alone!)
