A nice bright red lipstick - Art Deco Poppy Red 03


How are you?  I'm feeling quite run down today so I had to give my morning class a miss as we have late evening stage rehearsals I need to get through later on today.  I hope that keeping warm and taking it easy this morning will help me ward off anything too serious.  Anyway I wanted to write about a nice bright red lipstick I've had in my collection for a while but only got out again recently.
This lipstick is from the Art Deco Perfect Colour range in the shade Poppy Red 03, which in stores here is a very affordable 8 euros.  I went looking for the lipstick on any UK websites and found that it's sold at Debenhams for £10.25.  A bit of a mark-up but in the affordable make-up range non the less.
I have two of these lipsticks and they both impressed me with their colour pigmentation.  This red really looks to me like a true red colour with neither obvious orange or blue tones, although I would say it does stray in to the warmer tone of red.

The lipstick is creamy but the finish is neither matte nor glossy.  It's a sort of semi-matte which means it doesn't slip off your lips too easily but it isn't the longest lasting formula either.  I suspect this is why it says it's best teamed with Art Deco's Magic Fix on it's website.  When I wore this out over a lip liner I definitely got much better wear out of it so I would recommend doing that.

Over all I like the finish, the high pigmentation, and the fact that it doesn't dry out your lips like some longer lasting formulas do.  The only down side is that you will probably have to touch up after some drinks or some food however the packaging really is stylish and the bullet has a nice weight to it so getting it out to do those touch ups doesn't seem like much of chore.

I do find myself using my Art Deco lipsticks fairly regularly for a bright wash of colour.
I think now it's time for a warm bath to try and make myself perk up a bit before I go in to work.

Till next time :)
