Come on. Look at that. How could I not pick it up? They were having a buy one, get one 50% off, so I also picked up something that I thought would be more wearable day to day, #015, Born With It
(under daylight bulbs)
#645 Red Revival:
This is a true red. It is slightly darkened and leans slightly blue based, but not at all berry or wine-y at all. It does not apply quite as darkly as it looks in the bullet. It applied very opaquely and was quite moisturizing, though as with all lipsticks this bold, I did apply it over a base (MAC Prep + Prime Lip). It wore really well. I got probably 4 hours out of it, while drinking soda and coffee, before I needed to touch up. It stayed surprisingly glossy for the first two hours.
#015 Born With It
I will admit to doing nearly no research on these. I have no idea how long these colors have been out. I do have to figure that since this color is named with the Maybelline tag line, that it must be one of their flagship colors in this line. However, I found this color very disappointing. It is a neutral yellow based pink with tiny glitter. I don't think it looks glittery on the lips and I didn't get a gritty sensation on the lips. That's probably because the glitter doesn't stay in the lipstick. I found glitter everywhere. I have no idea how that is even possible, but there it is.
