The name Rio Rio instantly reminds me of vibrant Brazilian festivals and the lipstick certainly lives up to the name. In the tube it's quite a fluorescent red... but it applies as a more of a true red shade, slightly on the orange side. It's really easy to apply, all you need is one coat but you do need to be careful as I've ended up with smudged red marks all over my face a few times after a disastrous application as it's so pigmented. It lasts really well, even after having a few drinks and you don't really need to reapply. 
Rio Rio is described as a satin matte lipstick, which is definitely becoming one of my favourite finishes. It's not drying at all, it's actually quite moisturising. I love how it brightens up my face and it instantly makes you look more put together, even after a few hours at work. I wear it both when I'm at my palest (as you can see above) and when I'm tanned and I love it for both. It has also been compared to MAC Lady Danger, which for half the price isn't too shabby.

  7. I love this, I love the finish too, I've been after lady danger but I may go for this instead :) x

  8. I love a good red lip! Especially if the lipstick lasts after a couple of drinks. Lady Danger has been next on my list to get so maybe I should get the Topshop one instead.
