La facinante is somewhere between a brick red and cherry red, rather than a true red as it looks in the bullet. Heavily pigmented but not as last lasting as I hoped. It’s quite a dry formula and does cling on to dry bits. That makes it an excellent matte lipstick.
There is no no shine, shimmer or glitter in this one. Worn alone it lasts pretty much all day with little fade. Mixed with gloss it tends to lose logetivity. A matte lipbalm like Nuxe Reve De Miel works well.
It’s such a classy colour and pretty darn perfect for Christmas, don’t you think?
