This was the first tube lipstick I ever bought a while back and it is quite dry and difficult to put on. Have to press hard and swipe over and over to get color anywhere close to the tube and it's still not as vibrant as the marketing photos. I have dry lips so at the time, I assumed that was the issue. But I recently bought a different tube lipstick (from NARS in shade Rita) and discovered that apparently lipstick can go on vibrant in one swipe. Admittedly, Rita is a cream finish but I don't think being matte would single handedly make Red Scare this much trouble? Pictured is one swipe each of Rita on top and Red Scare on bottom. It's a bit hard to see but Red Scare has little pieces in it that I used to think was dead skin it scrubbed off my lips. But nope, it just does that. I don't know much about makeup but getting this after seeing the pictures of Katya was disappointing :c
Looks great, dries quick. LOVE the applicator :)
This lipstick is amazing! Perfect for when I'm feeling femme!
This has become my favorite lipstick. Its long-lasting, quick-drying, and a beautiful color.
nothing scary about buying this lipstick, it goes on so smoothly, the packaging, like all Trixie Cosmetics products, is perfect and the color is awesome
