Color: Color is a beautiful bright orangish red shade. The shade name is misleading as it is neither a red nor a orange shade but a mix of both. It will suit Medium to fair skin tone.

Texture/formula: Texture is smooth and buttery. Also, it does not make the lips dry at all and that is very unusual for a matte lipstick. However it settles into lip lines and highlights them, one of the disappointing trait i found in this lipstick. 
 
Application: Due to buttery texture the lipstick glides smoothly on the lips, however you need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before application as this lipstick has a tendency to highlight dry flaky areas. Also, moisturizer will keep the lip dryness at bay as matte lipsticks tends to make the lips dry.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is the best part of this matte range. One swipe gives the amazing color coverage. I love the strong pigmented lipsticks as the strong color gives the oomph factor and you need to worry about the rest of the makeup. In pics below i have kept rest of the makeup very basic and let the lips do all the talking  🙂 such is the power of this pigmented lip shade named Red Addict.

Longevity: I am wearing it to office daily for past 3-4 days and i must say it does stay for the considerably longggg time. On me it stayed for 6-7 hours with minor fading around the corner of the lips, i had a meal in between and tea as well. If you eat something oily then it tends to fade from the middle of the lip and requires touch up. Overall, it has a very good wear time and i am very impressed with it.

Staining/Removal: I have not experienced any staining on the lips. I removed it with Sephora oil based makeup remover and  it got removed very easily.

Pros:

  1. Sleek Packaging
  2. Very beautiful bright mix of orange+red color.
  3. Buttery smooth texture.
  4. Application is very easy, lipstick glides smoothly on lips.
  5. It does not make the lips dry.
  6. Superbly pigmented lipstick.
  7. Gives a glowy effect on the face, brightens the face instantly.
  8. Long wear time.
  9. It does not stain the lips.

Cons:

  1. Highlights the dry flaky areas on lips.
  2. Need to exfoliate the lips.
  3. Being the matte texture, it may feel dry on lips however i have not experienced any dryness at all.

My Verdict: This is the first time i have tried a matte shade from Faces and i am really impressed with the packaging, texture, pigmentation and staying power. I Recommend it!!

Rating: 4.5/5
