Ah, this is more like it. Chilli, a crimson shade with golden sparkle, is much more up my street than the explorations in orangey pink I've tried so far. Again, it's not massively pigmented - I'd say medium buildable - but a couple of passes over the lips gets a decent opacity. The finish is shiny and pretty, and I daresay my lips look plumper wearing it. It also wears reasonably, leaving a reddish stain instead of the dreaded ring of ugly fade.
With gold eyeshadow, brown liner, and plum blush, this lipstick makes for a gorgeous transitional look. I love, love, LOVE the colour. Definitely wearing this one again!
