My Experience with Kleancolor #8 Ruby Red Master Strokes Long-Wear Satin Lipstick:

Packaging: This lipstick comes in a retractable chubby stick form. This one looks like a dark wine shade, but it isn’t. The colour on this one’s packaging is misleading. The retractable mechanism is a little loose, though. The transparent cap fits just fine. It is easy to use and is travel-friendly.


Colour/pigmentation: ‘Ruby Red’ is an orangey red shade which is slightly darker than Poppy Red. It’s a very girly and flirty shade. I like that it is a bold and beautiful colour, and I love how it gives a plain outfit some jazz. The pigmentation is good and it is buildable. It appears to be a very glossy lipstick at first, but as time passes, it becomes a bit matte.


Texture: The texture of these lipsticks is very smooth and slightly creamy. These are satin finish lipsticks and are very comfortable on the lips. People with extremely dry lips need to moisturise their lips prior applying this. But, for the rest, this is a pretty forgiving formula. It glides on very easily and doesn’t tug much. On dry lips, this will tug a little bit.

Staying power: These lipsticks stay on the lips for 5 hours and survive meals too. I hadn’t expected these lipsticks to stay on for this long. This one does fade slightly after you eat or drink, but when you purse your lips, it looks even again. It needs a touch-up after every 3-4 hours.
