|Icon on left/ CHANEL Dragon on right.|
Icon is quite a unique and standout shade in my endless sea of reds. Sephora's site describes it as a "Dark Cherry", which I do agree with as it is in the cherry family, and it is a little darker than your traditional cherry, but it isn't as dark as perhaps a wine or merlot shade. It's very red, quite bloody actually. Looks darker in the tube than when applied.
Product is rich, pigmented, and glides on like a luxurious lip balm and feels like a treatment on my lips. Those of you who really enjoy emollient and creamy lipsticks would really appreciate Hourglass lipsticks, me thinks. Has a light vanilla scent, which I just adore.
This is one of those shades that are so bold on their own that it's best to keep the rest of the face simple. Either I'll wear it with bare eyes or with winged liner.
I find myself reaching for this often, in fact, it's my lipstick of the week.
Thanks for reading!
