I love makeup that comes in a twist up stick. I think it's a great concept. It's portable and makes application easy you can use your fingers or makeup brushes for blending.
W3LL PEOPLE Universalist 5 Creamy Crimson* is the third product that I've tried from W3LL PEOPLE. The first was their Narcissist Foundation (also a twist up stick) and the second was their Bio Extreme mascara. Both are great makeup products. This is my first journey into their color cosmetics and as per usual I did not go in with a whimper, but with a bang!

Using this as a lipstick in my experience required a lip brush due to the darkness of the shade. As with any muli-use product (or most lipsticks for that matter) I prepped my lips with lip balm. If applying with your fingers make sure to warm the product with your fingertips first. It's a great tip listed on W3LL PEOPLE's site.
Creamy Crimson is one of their matte colorsticks. When using it as a lipstick you will get a nice neutral red matte finish. If you'd like a glossy finish top with a clear gloss. I've heard great things about W3LL PEOPLE's Bio Extreme Lip Gloss.
Under both outside and inside lighting:
I never worn red much until switching to organic and natural makeup. Now I'm slowly building up a collection. I adore this shade and will be wearing it quite a bit over the holiday season and the rest of the winter. Also, if you've been a reader of mine for a while, you will not be surprised to see me wearing this color no matter the time of year. I wear colors based on my mood, not on what the fashion magazines tell me. I am after all a Natural Warrior... right W3LL PEOPLE?
