Are you intimidated by bold, rich, and loudmouth reds? Then meet Monshu Red, a fresh and youthful kind of red. It's for people who want to sport red lips without getting too much attention. LOL!

 I have already made a detailed review for the Rouge Unlimited lipstick so please check it HERE.

 Here's Monshu Red on my lips. This shade is quite a chameleon: Under natural lighting, the color is like this. But under artificial lighting, the Coral undertone tends to dominate the red tone, especially when the lighting is quite warm and orange. Sometimes, I'd like to think that this is somewhere in between a coral shade and a red shade but most of the time, it's more reddish so I therefore conclude that Monshu Red is a bright red shade with a strong Coral undertone. In its strictest sense, this shade cannot be categorized as a true red but in the universe of Karl Lagerfeld, this is the color red. It's his collection anyway so we should abide by his rules!

I love how Monshu Red would make me look young, fresh, and blooming. It's the kind of red that doesn't make you appear like a Femme Fatale or a woman with the slogan GIRL POWER on her forehead. I recommend it to college girls and corporate gals. It's also the best shade to ease yourself into brighter and bolder reds!
