I am not a big fan of red lip color. Now when I was younger I remember that’s the only color I ever wore. Different shades of red. However now I prefer to play up my eyes and wear more muted colors on the lips.
On the tube it is a very bright fuchsia red. Scary, right? Well, not really. It is sheer after all so it just makes my lips very rosy. Which I dig on days where I have nothing on the eyes. Perfect for those minimal days. What I love about LMdB lip glosses whether they may be the sheer brilliance kind or the lip cremes, is that they are moisturizing (not a whole lot but does the job to maintain moisture) and not tacky at all. They don’t slip either. I don’t really take into consideration the longevity of lip glosses because I find it to be subjective (depends on how much you purse your lips together, if you ever lick your lips, drinking from a cup versus a straw, eating esp oily foods, etc). This one gives my lips consistent moisture, color and shine for at least 2 hours without doing anything (i.e., drinking and eating). I highly recommend Hibiskiss if you’re looking to start wearing red, a lover of red or just addicted to makeup.
Here’s what LMdB’s website has to say about the product.
