I got a phone call from MAC store sometime back when the Viva Glam Rihanna was launched and I rushed to the store to buy one lipstick but then something magical happened, I saw the a color that I just could not stop staring: what I saw was Relentlessly Red lipstick. I tried it and something happened. I just could not stop looking at myself and slowly I realized that there were two other girls who were looking at me or maybe the lipstick. So like any other lipstick lover, I bought it!
Relentlessly Red is a bight coral pink shade. The color is amazing and looks great on all Indian skin tones, for someone who is fair to medium it looks like a coral pink shade but someone who is a little dark it looks redder. It instantly brightens up the face. The color is highly pigmented. Single swipe gives a very opaque coverage.
Every time I wear this lipstick I just wear a thick coat of mascara and little bit of coral blush. The lipstick is such a nice color that it just makes all the difference.
Retro matt finish they say is very drying, but I did not find it so drying on my lips. The finish is rather comfortable. The lipstick as such is a little dry, so a little pressure is required to apply the color.
The staying power is amazing, the color stays for almost 7 hours, even when it wears off it leaves a pink stain. It does look a little flaky after a long day. Removing it is a challenge. I have to use olive oil or baby oil to remove it.
You must exfoliate and moisturize your lips before you apply this lipstick.
I think this is a must have color by all Indian girls. I rate it 4.9/5. I’m very happy I bought it!
