In the tube it looks like a very deep wine colour which immediately attracted me to it because it's just the shade that I have been looking for, it is also matte which I love because matte finishes are my favourite, some people like more of a glossy finish to their lips and if you are one of these people then I'm glad to let you know that this lipstick does come in a glossier version. It cost only £5.00 which I think is pretty good and sooooo worth it, the staying power is really great and I'm sure that has something to do with the fact that it's matte finish, even though it is matte I don't find it that drying but it would be wise to exfoliate and moisturize before hand. This lipstick comes with 3.5g of product, it also has lip gloss on the top of the lid if you wanted to add gloss over the top of it, I find it great to line your lips with, with a lip brush.
If you are of lighter skin tone and think that this would be too dark for you than I recommend you get "infatuated" which is still a lovely wine colour just not as dark as this one.
The packaging is the classic Accessorize print which is the floral print, very cute!
I did do a quick swatch on my hand so that you guys could see the colour and formulation of the lipstick a bit better. This also helps if you are close to my skin tone and need some indication to what it would look like on you, I know I always find that really helpful.
I think that this lipstick would look really nice with a neutral, simple eye look, winged liner and mascara. It's such a statement vampy shade! Let me know in the comments what you think about this shade or just accessorize makeup in general.
