Love all three of these colors, it goes on my lips smoothly and the product is pigmented. It also does not dry out my lips. I like to put a glossy put a matching glossy color on top sometimes and it looks so good. I bought this from Sephora and I would definitely buy it again. It wouldn't let me add the picture for Fire Down Below cause you can only have three pictures but I love that color too.

Review for: Schiap (shocking pink - semi matte finish) more...
I absolutely ADORE this lipstick. It's such a fun punch of bright pink/fuchsia; I can't find a color like this anywhere else! It goes on nice and soft, and it lasts for hours. I usually only need to reapply after meals. As a bonus, the square, matte-black lipstick tube is really chic. I love how the "NARS" logo wraps around the cap. I would definitely recommend NARS Semi Matte Lipstick in Schiap.

I bought this from Sephora. I went in and told the sales associate that I was looking for a red lip. I hadn’t exactly found my color yet and was somewhat nervous about the red lip. She told me that every person who tried on Red Lizard always loves it. She made me a believer because I absolutely love that lipstick. It was about $36 but it had long wear, smudge proof, moisture and looked great for about 8 hours before I went to bed.

The lipstick is creamy and has a shine to it. The red is a beautiful undertone yellow. It reminds me of the urban decay mega matte, the only difference is this one has a shine and it’s easier to apply.

This lipstick is amazing! I have the color fire down below and it’s the perfect red, orange, brick color without too much blue tone in it. I wear it to go out and it lasts the whole night. It can be a little drying but you have to remember that it’s a matte lipstick.
Review for: Fire Down Below (blood red - semi matte finish) more...
The packaging is great. Very simple yet you feel the great quality. I was satisfied with the shade luckily. The semi matte” fits very well because it’s not too creamy but not to drying. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for new lipsticks!

Amazing shade of color! It goes on smoothly. The only problem with it not being fully matte is that it does tend to smear and you find yourself having to check in a mirror. It doesn't make your lips dry so if you are looking for something smooth this can be the lipstick for you ! 💓

Review for: Red Lizard (full-powered red - semi matte finish) more...
Not sure if this is the red that I have, but I do have a red lipstick that I like. I wish it didn’t come off so easily - it is not like some lipsticks that stain forever regardless of what you do, but the color is nice and it goes on easy.

One of my top favorite red cream lipsticks of all time! It’s super smooth, pigmented, and doesn’t dry out my lips☺️ It may not be transfer proof, but it will definitely last through the day or night if you’re careful when you eat😌

I love this red lipstick! Best and most flattering bold red color by far, it will be the one I keep going back to. Glam but modern. The texture is great, not drying as can sometimes be the case with other richly pigmented brands, and stays put all night. I usually use a little bit o' lipliner to ensure it's in place, but have also gone without in a pinch and it looks great and sharp as well. A little pricey but so worth it. The best!
