Described as a “clean light peachy coral,” Ravishing is a color that I wanted to love but didn’t. I mean, I like it, but it pulls a little bit more orange on me than on some other people. Probably because of my skin tone, but who really knows?
Ravishing is a creamsheen lipstick, which means that it is very creamy and goes on quite glossy-shiny. It should be said that creamsheens are NOT my favorite lipsticks. I can’t stand how they apply. It feels quite heavy (for me) and I find that it clings to dry patches.
When the lipstick “sets” and dries down after a few hours, it’s just an unpleasant overall feeling of tackiness and accumulated soaked dry flakes. LOL it’s probably not as bad as I’m making it out to be, but like I said: not my favorite finish.
This swatch is closer to what I hoped Ravishing would be on my lips. I think I was looking for a slightly less pink Betty Bright, which is a color I prefer but is unfortunately limited edition.
Here’s another way I like wearing this lipstick! In this image, I am wearing Ravishing topped with a Le Métier de Beauté Lip Crème in Fraise Crème, which is a sort of pinky-red with golden shimmers.
Truthfully, I like the color enough, but I really can’t stand the finish. I guess it’s my fault for not moisturizing my lips before applying, heh. I think that’s probably going to improve my overall experience of it.
