I was hesitant and didn't planned in buying anything from this collection,because I prefer the classic black bullet tubes lying around my makeup traincase. The only limited edition that I own was from Give me Liberty of London in Blooming lovely way back in 2010 I think.So what made me decide in getting this? Because I was eyeing to get the famous ruby woo and when I tried it on in Mac glorietta,sad to say it doesn't suit me. My husband told me without any hesitation "hon di bagay sayo,di ka Anne Curtis" what the??!! Ok I wasn't really mad at him,and even thank him for telling the truth..when I looked at the mirror I'm like ok di nga bagay! The resident m/u artist from Mac was nice enough to entertain me, her name was Sharon (I think) she was patient enough to test red lipsticks on me but end up buying lickable.
So when the Archie's collection was launched I patiently read reviews on their lipsticks and so finally I settle for Ronnie red,this was rated 5.0 from makeupalley.com how good is that?!
My search for perfect red lipstick is over.
My photos doesnt give justice on how this lipstick looks like in person, im using my iphone.
I must admit i super like the packaging,reminds me when i was in gradeschool when i was so hooked in readng Archies comics
Lipstick mark that I swatch the day before I took photos
What I like
Stays on for almost 6 hours on me (with snacking in between)
Label says its matte finish but Doesn't dry out your lips
Longevity is pretty awesome
Suits almost akin color
Doesn't scream bright red (thanks to its pink undertone)
Wearable enough to be worn on daytime
It's so pigmented
Applies on smoothly like dream
Doesn't settle on cracks of my lips( which I experience on almost all of my matte lipsticks
What I don't like
I think this lipstick will be my best friend for a couple of months now, I was never a fan of red lipsticks since I was more into pinks and nude but hey I think I found the perfect red for my skin tone. Wish me luck I won't be running out of this since this is limited edition
Here's moi wearing Ronnie red
