DuWop Private Red Lipstick had my attention at first glance as it quite reminded me of Lipstick Queen Medieval with it’s promise of creating a unique personal shade of red for my lips.
Jump ahead to hear the review.
For some odd reason I was under the impression this would be sheer and subtle a la Medieval but actually it’s quite richly pigmented. The idea of the lipstick is it has a formula that is supposed to adapt to an individual’s body chemistry and create a perfect shade of red.
Few things I love about DuWop Private Red Lipstick….
Moisturizing formula, incredible popping red pigment, applies smoothly and flawlessly. This is an all around great lipstick in both formula and color payoff.
Few things that didn’t impress me about DuWop Private Red Lipstick….
Scary garish shade of red on my lips, does not change to the “perfect” shade of red, stains lips crazily.
The color is really clown-like on me and not suitable at all for my skin tone. The shade is warmer and almost brick red which would on all accounts be a perfect shade of red for me however no go. I applied it on my arm and waited a while to see if it would deepen or change shades but it didn’t. So away I went and applied on my lips but it pretty much stays the same shade as the product itself. Not to be swayed I started getting swatch happy and applied to my sister and my friends arms to see if it would change. Umm nope no go. It pretty much stays the same shade as you see in the tube. The color itself in the tube is actually quite beautiful but the finish on my lips was way too bright and as I said a bit clown-like.
Overall, a few warmer brown notes might have made me deem this the near perfect shade of red but sadly it was a no go for me. Formula wise it’s golden and gets a huge rave from this Muse but color wise it’s a miss, no likey.
Anyone pick this up?
Successful choice of red for you?
