Melkior Irresistible Classic Lipstick is one of the two lip shades released this month as part of the new Melkior Let’s Love Life Fall 2015 Collection (info, photos) which is already available in the stores. This Autumn is all about rich and intense lip colors and if you are following me on Periscope (@Chicprofile) you’ve already seen a sneak peek of this lipstick and a swatch.

Melkior Irresistible Classic Lipstick (39.90 Lei for 4.5 g/ 0.16 oz) is a medium raspberry red with cool undertones and a matte-satin finish. This color is rich, highly pigmented and delivers an opaque color coverage on the lips.
It glides smoothly and evenly across the lips, without sinking into lip lines and shows a natural satin shine. The formula is rich, creamy, doesn’t try out my lips but I can’t say that it’s moisturizing.
I always a lip pencil to line my lips prior to applying Melkior Irresistible Lipstick because the color tends to migrate a bit on the edges of the lip.
At first when I saw the color in the tube I though, this is surely too dark for me and I couldn’t make it work, as it looks so pigmented and more appropriate for anyone with medium and dark skin tones. I was totally wrong, as this Irresistible shade really works even on pale, light skin tones like mine, without looking to harsh. Indeed it’s a splash of color and will definitely draw attention to your lips so you may want to keep the eye makeup a bit more natural or nude.
The formula is long-lasting as I had about 7 hours wear, but it was neither drying nor hydrating. What else you should know is that, Melkior Irresistible Lipstick will stain your lips, so I mean even after the color is gone it will leave an intense than can go on for 1-2 more hours at least.
When I swatched this on my hand, I could only remove it properly with a bi-phasic makeup remover as Micellar lotion or makeup remover wipes didn’t do quite a good job.
