My thoughts
125 Crazy Sexy Crimson is a deep red – ideal for fall/winter and looks absolutely wonderful on my fair medium skin tone. It appears shiny upon application but sets to a semi-matte finish eventually.

I love how it is so moisturizing and has a faint rose scent to it however the pigmentation of the product is such a comedown. It’s not as intense as it seems in the tube which is why I think the coverage falls somewhere between sheer to medium. The good news is, it’s buildable and can be built to full coverage. Since the formula is very hydrating, you need not to worry about your lips drying out. Also, it glides smoothly over lips without highlighting lip lines.

Truthfully speaking, I am not thrilled with the longevity of the formula. It lasts no longer than two hours on my lips. Overall, I think it’s an okayish lipstick; I was hoping for something richer and long wearing.

You might like it if…
  • You expect it to hydrate your lips without drying out
  • You are looking for a semi opaque lipstick
  • It doesn’t highlight lip lines
You might not like it if…
  • It doesn’t last long on your lips
  • You expect full coverage

  7. For some reason looking at the swatch makes me think it might bleed. The color is very dark but suits you nonetheless. Very nice review. :)
