When looking at the color in the bullet it also has a lot of brown but on the back of my hand that's not noticeable. It looks very much like a true blue red but too red for me and dry but I'm not used to lipstick. I will try it with some gloss over it and see if it's more to my liking.

 

Westman Atelier petal blush.  More of a peachy nude.  I think my monitor needs calibrated. I didn't used to have this problem.

 

Off to visit my parents for the day. Enjoy your Saturday ladies.

it's a tough red to pull off.  Not too many women can do it.  It's fun to try though

HOT DOG!  If it's a TRUE BLUE RED, it was made JUST FOR ME! It's in my cart, but I'll be in town this week so I just may scadaddle on into Sephora!

Curious to see how you like it. Please let us know. I was hoping it had more pink in it but I don't know that I would have kept it if it did. It was so dry on my lips and I'm sure it would have just gotten more dry the longer I wore it.  If I ever found a pinky blue-red gloss, I would consider giving that a try.  My lips are burning tonight as I climbed in bed with two Lawless plumpers on my lips.

Count me as one who can't pull it off.  It was beautiful in the ad though.

It has three colors. The bullet itself which looks a little brown to me.  A different color on the back of my hand which is the color I hoped it would be and yet another color on my lips.  I hope it's the perfect color for you 😊. I have 8 million lip glosses to use before I die 😳

@monicakm  I will let you know. I saw this campaign a while ago and I had high hopes! We shall see... many years ago Channel had a color called coco red. That was my favorite red lip. Of course...in true channel fashion is was discontinued...ugh...stay tuned

@monicakm   This really surprises me because I'm a strong pink undertone (Irish, so maybe red is a better word, lol) and Petal is a soft pink on me. No peach or nude at all. Now my lips pull orange on almost every red on the market so maybe it's a body chemistry thing. So sorry it didn't work out for you!!

I could tell the red was too bright for me.  But, I always wear some sort of gloss over my lipsticks.

 

@FiddleDeeDee I know what you mean about lippies pulling orange.  I hate that.  I would be interested in how that Petal turns out.  The pic Monica posted looked like it had a slight peach to it although I couldn't tell.  I prefer more of a mauve/rose on my cheeks although I can wear a little peach, like Nars O.
