This lipstick retails for $18 a tube. I’m so glad I got it on sale for half the price! It’s a great lipstick but I would not pay $18 for it. I haven’t tried many Michael Todd products and this is my first lipstick from them. They have a few different lipstick formulas but this Naked Kiss formula is supposed to be moisturizing and it’s not bad. This isn’t the most pigmented red but it’s a nice glossy red.
I love the packaging. This lipstick looks a lot smaller than every other lipstick that I own because they didn’t lengthen the bullet tube like most brands do. I kind of like it. It’s small and compact. It’s really no-nonsense packaging at its best. Please excuse my dry skin in the picture above. I had a bad reaction to a skin cream I was trying out.
There are sixteen Naked Kiss colors available in total. I’m really happy with this pretty cherry red color and I think Affection is a great name for it.
