Actually 4.5 stars but I rounded up. I am a BIG fan of VMVHypoallergenics...95 percent of my makeup/skincare is from this company (I would be so happy to make that 100 percent if they made just a couple more products...a gell eyeliner and a liquid (squeeze tube) eyeshadow would be amazing!). Anyway, VMVHypoallergenics' lipsticks are the only ones I can wear without a reaction, but at first I was a bit disappointed in the color options, as so many of them had warm rather than cool undertones. I have very pale white skin, pinkish cheeks, light eyes, and very dark hair, and anything orangey, brown, or hot pink looks very weird on me. I have been snapping up the red lipsticks when they're in stock, but none had that BLUE undertoned, French-girl ultra-red I was searching for. So when I saw "Ruby" announced, I grabbed it as soon as it was available. I will say, when I first opened it I was a tiny bit sad that it looked more brown than I expected. However, I'm happy to report that it does look good on, despite not being *quite* as red-red as I was hoping for. I added a touch of "Cabaret" gloss over it, which helped as I'm not generally a fan of mattes (though these are creamy and non-drying, which is nice). Haven't tried the Ruby gloss yet, but that might be next on the agenda. Overall I'd say this is a slightly qualified win.
I have loved this lipstick since discovering it years ago (VMVhypoallergenics is the ONLY lipstick I can wear) but I was previously disappointed in the color choices. They were mainly orange, pink, or brownish (which is fine if those suit your skin tones, but none looked good on me). Now you have so many reds, too!! Thank you! This lipstick is so smooth and non-irritating and it makes me feel like an old Hollywood bombshell.
I just purchased the velvet matte lipstick in Copa. Wow! What a great lipstick! It does not feather, it is not dry on my lips, and the color is outstanding. Thank you so much!! I thought my lipstick days were over until I found this. So happy!!
Not dry like most matte lipsticks. Can use on top of another lipstick as well.
