Venom is one of those lipsticks that requires a real entrance. This isn't one to be wearing everyday - it's a lipstick to be brought out as a secret weapon when you really need it. Such as a) a dinner party where you need to be the centre of attention, or b) a hot date, and my personal favourite, c) when you need a little war paint to defeat the problem ahead.
Venom is so good at uplifting your mood because it's such a great little potion of confidence.
The creamy texture is fully loaded with a berry punch that stays put no matter what, and the colour is so vivid and beautiful that I really have no idea why it took me so long to try it.
Colour Intensity: high
Finish: rich, creamy
Overall Rating: 4/5
You'll like this if: you need a lipstick to help you make a real movie star entrance
Perfect for: special occasions / when you need a bit of a pick-me-up
Avoid: if you're worried about this transferring to everything else. The colour is beautiful, but no one wants it on someone else's collar when you hug them
