Texture: (4/5) This vampy red-purple lipstick goes on smooth and is very easy to wear. Like the other lipsticks in this line that I own, Oxford Wine is VERY forgiving. This is the type of lipstick that you can wear even when your lips are a little chapped and peeling because it doesn’t emphasize imperfections. It’s also moisturizing with a glossy finish. The texture is a bit thin, so it needs more maintenance if you want to keep the vibrancy, but I prefer the stain it leaves.
Color: (4/5) The color in the tube is intimidating, but when its on the lips it’s a lot more wearable. I like to blend it out with a pink gloss, because I don't want to look like Elvira up in here. This lippie also eaves a pretty stain so its easy to layer it on, and wipe it off after a few minutes for a subtle deep red stain. I sometimes mix it with a red lipstick or gloss, but the red usually takes over and there is no purple to be seen.
BEAUTYLIT GRADE: B+
I got this lipstick on a whim, I wanted to experiment and the price was really cheap so I went ahead and did it. If you like a purple lip or a red-purple lip stain, this is an excellent affordable option. However, the color doesn’t always work with every look and would be most suitable for fall/winter. It’s a great product and it’s on trend, so if this suits your taste I’d say go for it!
See ya next time!!
