I’m very fair, so most reds are overpowering on me, but this is just muted enough that it doesn’t look off, and just bright enough that it’s still a statement red if you build it up that way. ...I took a star off for the color, millenial to me is more a muted red bean shade, it does not have any pink on my light-medium color lips, if you have a darker natural lip color this might come across more pink but even compared to the colors shown on the models, the lipstick leans more red bean undertone than pink.

Muted Orange Lipstick
