There’s a wide colour range so you’re bound to find something you love. The formula is really moisturising and hydrates the lips as you wear them. Grapeseed & avocado butter lends a lightweight, nourishing formula that can be applied semi-sheer or built up for a more intense look. I love the sweet scent and taste, reminds me of those early childhood favourite Cola Jelly Candy.
These are swatched in order of shades 1,2,3,4 from the bottom up and each swatch is 2-3 passes of colour.
- 01 Marilyn Ruby Red is the iconic neutral true red shade inspired by Marilyn.
- 02 Marilyn Sunset Red is a burnt orange based red for warm & yellow skin tones. I think this will be a gorgeous lipstick for the summer months
- 03 Marilyn Berry is a cool toned coral red with blue undertones for pink & pale skin tones. A beautiful, rich deep pink tone which looks a little more berry on the lips. I think this is the easiest of the four to wear, the safest shade I guess.
- 04 Marilyn Cabernet is a deep, purple toned wine red for darker, brown skin tones. The colour is very glamorous and sophisticated perfect for chilly cold winter nights to a rock a vamp look.

With a sheen satin finish, these lip shades are quite versatile, one layer gives an everyday look while 2-3 swatches intensify the pigment leaving a bold look for evening. The glossy colour doesn’t feather out even without lip liner and the wear time is average at about three hours before the colour fades down into a slight tint, you can always increase the wear with the blotting, another layer & powder trick.
Overall, then, a great collection of reds, particularly at the very reasonable price of AED45 a pop. Any confirmed red lipstick lover will find a shade to love.
