To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Palladio is a brand that is sold at Sally Beauty stores as well. I have used their products before and they are excellent. The lipsticks are particularly smooth and not gummy or bleed outside your lip line. As a side note, I had a friend that worked for Estee Lauder. Their lipstick is made just like every other lipstick. There are certain basic ingredients that comprise a lipstick. There is no majic bullet to make a $25.00 lipstick like Estee Lauder better than a drugstore brand like Maybelline or Revlon. The difference in price, is straight from the source, my friend who worked in Packaging & Promotion. $1.00 lipstick, $24.00 for packaging & promotion. The same goes for every other name brand you will see in a Department Store.
This is a great, long-staying lipstick. I usually buy high-end cosmetics, but I keep buying this for my coral shade for the summer. I get compliments every time I wear it. The consistency is like a MAC matte. I would say its a somewhat darker, but neutral coral. Not too orange, not too pink. Perfect. For other Amazon amazing beauty buys, try the Canmake cream blush. I've used it for years now.
I love this Palladio matte lipstick - coral. It's not coral but a vibrant orange-red (or as I call it a tomato red). It's flexible for daytime or evening. It also has staying power. If you're looking for coral, this is NOT the lipstick for you. But as a redhead, I love the way this orange-red lipstick complements my skin tone and hair color. It's also very reasonably priced.
This lipstick is described as "Coral" but is definitely red. I double checked the packaging thinking that the wrong item had been sent. And unfortunately, I don't believe lipstick is a returnable item because of the potential for contamination.
