Tester: Multi-ethnic (Indian/British) about Frieda Pinto's complexion with lightly pigmented lips.
"Reds can be tricky, reds can be overpowing -- red lipstick shades can even be intimidating for many women.
So we took on our own blogger team challenge of finding a nice red for the spring that many of you would enjoy (and would look smashing too!).
This is it.
RD-305 is a chic, cool red. The pigments were very high, but it's a medium/sheer finish with a natural looking shine effect. It was very smooth and silky. Because of the high Macadamia Seed Oil content it was incredibly moisturizing as well. The feel of the lipstick was light on my lips. The case itself was also really unique with it's faceted sides. A beautiful and luxurious design that I loved looking at and having in my collection.
The staying power is average (I did have to apply after drinks, eating), but this is not a long lasting lipstick formula so I didn't hold that against it. This is a soft focused red that's not too cool and looked great on many of our testers from Luicy Liu and Paula Abdul ranges to those in the Gabrielle Union range. This is a red that you can believe in!" A.V.
