My experience with Diana of London Absolute Moisture Lip Liner Cardinal Red :-

Shade:- Cardinal Red is a lovely cool toned cherry red shade. No orange pink or maroon undertones just a gorgeous pure red color.

Texture:- The texture is extremely soft and smooth which glides super-easily and doesn’t tug with lips at all. It is soft but doesn’t smudge or smear post-application nor does its tips break even under pressure during application.

Pigmentation:- The color is richly pigmented and gives absolute opaque coverage in a single swipe. It is so easy to define lips with these liners as they have a pointed tip which is capable of drawing thin lines which gives a clean definition to them. The color spreads nicely and gives an even coverage to the lips when used as lip filler.



Finish:- The liner gives a lovely matte finish to the lips. It can also be worn as a stain, just dab the color with a tissue for a hint of red on lips. For shiny red lips, you can also top it up with a clear gloss.

Staying:- The staying power is amazing as it lasts on me 7-8 hours easily. The color fades a bit with meals and snacks in between but it never leaves lips n*de or ditch you in between a party. It will also work great as a base for lipsticks as it increases their staying power and holds them for long

Cons of Diana Of London Absolute Moisture Lip Liner – Cardinal Red:-

  1. Diana of London products are not easily available
  2. Feels slightly dry when used to fill lips but that can be handled by moisturizing lip before application

Recommendation:- Diana Of London Absolute Moisture Lip Liner – Cardinal Red is a true red lip color which makes a flattering red shade for all skin tones. It goes so smoothly over lips just like any creamy lipstick but with a stunning matte finish. The lip liner is superbly pigmented and does a good job at restricting the red lipsticks to the lip area and wouldn’t let them bleed outside the lip lining. Though it is a matte finish lip color but doesn’t feel very drying to lips. The long-lasting and non-transferable features of these makes them a must have.

If you have ever lusted for those appealing Red hot lips this is the one of the best option to get one. Every time I saw some Red lip color, I have to get it be it liner or lipstick. I am falling in love with Reds more and more. Cardinal Red is one of the beautiful reds I have even worn and a must have for special occasions
