Review: I will be the first to admit that I hate red lipstick on myself.... I seriously hate it. But when Rio landed on my desk I was intrigued by the pink-red shade that peered at me under the lid and the description that came with it: brick red. Ugh... how appealing, I thought to myself. When it came to trying on NP Set in Rio, I was really surprised with the product, for starters the colour actually looks really nice on... much better than it actually looks. The texture is soft and smooth during application and the colour stays for hours without touching up. Over an 8 hour period I think I touched up 3-4 times and worm colleagues were asking me if I had touched up my lips because the colour was still prominent. The matte finish was a little flat for my liking and if given the opportunity, I would have loved to add a clear gloss to give it some definition. Five stars for staying power, keeping lips feeling soft ... and for not smudging everywhere!
