My Experience with Seventeen 07 Red All Day Lip Color:
I have already reviewed the shade 05 Habiscus from this range and I am very pleased with the pigmentation , texture and longevity of these lip colors. Red color is an orangy tone red which goes perfectly with summer day time look and compliments almost all skin tone from fair to dark. These lip colors requires proper exfoliation and hydration of lips underneath if you are going for a matte finish as this color accentuates into lines on my lips may be because I opt for matte finish without hydrating my lips with lip balm. It requires a pretty long time about 10 minutes to get completely dry and set on my lips.
It has a very travel friendly packaging of double ended tube with lip color and top gloss either side of the tube. The lip color has the doe foot applicator and the top gloss consists of thin brush type applicator. The shade code is imprinted on the bottom of lip color tube and name of the shade is at the sticker on the tube. Both the ends have a screw mechanism to tighten the cap onto the tube which avoids the spillage of product.
The lip color has a very sweet mild floral scent and liquid gel type consistency with good pigmentation. One swipe is completely opaque. The color is not buildable as one swipe has the same color intensity as multiple swipes. The top gloss is a clear gel with very sweet scent to it.
It has a pretty good staying power which is one of the reason of my affinity with this range of lip colors. It stayed on my lips for about 8 hours, which is like a two thumbs up thing !!! I took my meals and drinks , kissed my little daughter several times and the color doesn’t move from its place nor it gets transfer . Though I found little chip away of product from inner part of my lips but it was a teeny tiny bit which is almost negligible. Finally I removed it with my makeup remover.
Pros of Seventeen 07 Red All Day Lip Color:
• Beautiful summer Red with orange undertones to it.
• Can be used as a matte and glossy finish.
• Good pigmentation and opacity.
• Once set it does not transfer nor budge.
• Does not bleed out of lips.
• Top gloss hydrates the lips all day long..
• Pretty long lasting , actually stays from lunch to dinner.
Cons of Seventeen 07 Red All Day Lip Color:
• Availability in India.
• Accentuates into lines if not properly hydrated with lip balm underneath.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
