Lord & Berry 20100 Crayon Lipstick Shiny

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3 stars

COST: $16

THE SKINNY: Lord & Berry is an Italian boutique fashion house created in 1992 to provide makeup and fashion pieces. The makeup is available through a few online retailers in the U.S., such as Beauty Bar.

The crayon lipstick goes on smooth and almost wet. (Recommendation: Use a lip liner to help keep the color in place.) I needed to tame the color down by blotting, mostly because "Scarlet," a deep red with pink undertones, really isn't my color.

The lipstick really isn't shiny in the sense of it being glossy. But it's not matte, either. It falls somewhere in between. The lipstick has a rich, pretty color to it.

It felt a little dry on my lips after a few minutes, but it was tolerable. I'm a Carmex junky, so anything that's not a gloss feels a little dry on my lips.

The color lasts an average amount of time for lipstick. It started to fade after about an hour and was gone after two hours.

KEEP OR TOSS: I'd keep if the color was better for my complexion.

CHECK IT OUT: 20100 Crayon Lipstick comes in 19 colors (plus another four matte shades).
