Still wary of wearing red? This is your perfect starter, truly. One swipe yields a sheer, mostly-you finish that looks like maybe you've been kissing someone (not my Clive Owen). A more concentrated application results in a soft-gloss red that still lets your natural colour show through -- think of it as personalized, a shade that always suits you. And the texture, more balm than lipstick, conditions lips and feels comfortable for hours.
Hah, you've figured it out -- in the last couple of weeks you've all been playing "find the lipstick" in drugstores across Canada! This is Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Cherry Tart, $9.50. It has shimmer, somehow I have trouble remembering that (which is weird because I've worn it more than once and most recently on Friday); it took Citrine's comment below to remind me. Doesn't look shimmery on, though, does it? (Here's Raspberry Pie by the way.)
What shades have you found and tried so far? How many will find their way into holiday stockings for your favourite people?
