This is an ULTRA bright hot pink color. It looks a bit scary, but everyone that I have seen wearing it looks great! You can sheer it out by putting a good layer of lip balm underneath it, like I did. If you wear it without much lipbalm, prepare for it to be very, very, VERY intense... Intense, but amazing. Seriously, I cannot recommend this color enough for Spring and Summer. I don't have any color like it in my collection. It is a cool-red-leaning-neutral, but it does it without going into fuchsia tones. I think just about anyone could wear this, just be brave!
First, bare lips. I prepped them with a thin application of Lansinoh.
