Marsala is described as a robust and earthy wine red. One of my favourite colours to wear around this time of year, and great for makeup looks. (Is anyone else been seriously lusting over the Lime Crime Venus Palette?)
It described as a creamy finish lipstick that also moisturises lips however, it is also very pigmented. I found that it has a stain-like quality on my lips which is great for all day wear as the product shifts there is colour left underneath. I do have to reapply for the colour to stay intense. It is quite a dark colour on the bullet but applies a lot lighter on the skin but maintains that vampy burgundy look I was going for. When applying it does bleed a little so it requires a lip liner to keep it in place, as well as a couple of swipes across the lips for an even application. I wouldn’t say that this is a problem for me as I find this to be a recurring theme amongst darker lipsticks.
