Well red is a very nice colour, I pick up this Maybelline Red Porcelain RP41 colour because I can't resist the colour.
Above you can see my left hand, with just one swipe is good enough.
Below picture of me, I only use one swipe for my lips.
This lippy is red enough for me, it matches my beads on my braided hairstyle too.
This lippy can lasts me for three hours.
