Hey gorgeous beauties out there!

I hope you all are in the pink of your health and pampering yourselves with lots of beauty goodies :D

Today I have a gorgeous Raspberry pink/red lipstick shade to review on, Fran Wilson MOODmatcher lipstick in the shade ‘Red’. I got this lippie in my August FAB BAG. I have been using this pretty much every day ever since and finally I am ready to share my thoughts on it! Read on..

What Fab Bag has to say:

Leave him spellbound with these mood-changing lipsticks. Yes, you read it right! This ‘magic’ makeup reacts to your body chemistry to transform into a picture perfect hue.

Price: INR 590

My Experience with the Product:


The product comes in a black bullet with a transparent cap. Nothing fancy about the packaging, just very basic! Also I felt the bullet looks kind of cheap because of not-so-great finishing. There are lippies available at half of its price with way better packaging than this (read Maybelline Color Show Lipsticks). In addition to this, the lipstick does not go fully inside of the bullet upon rolling down. So care needs to be taken while shutting the cap. Otherwise it might lead to breakage of the lipstick tip.

There are total 5 shades available: Green, Yellow, Black, Red and Pink. Mine is the shade ‘Red’ which transforms into a super gorgeous raspberry pinkish red on my lips. Initially it gets applied quite sheer but after a minute or two it takes the true color based on interaction with the body temperature, pH level etc. It means it will take different color on different persons based on the wearer’s biological body condition! Interesting, isn't it?

The texture is balm like. There is absolutely no need to apply lip balm underneath unless you have seriously dry chapped lips. The stick glides smoothly on the lips and gives shiny gloss like finish. It can be mattified by blotting with tissue or just dabbing finger.


CRAZY!! On the hand swatch it seems to be appearing sheer, because the image was taken immediately after swatching on hand. On lips, it takes couple of minutes to take the true color. Once it sets, it gives intense pigmentation without bleeding or smudging! It stains quite heavily as well. So it does not transfer much and survives a full meal. It has to be removed by makeup remover only!

Wear Time:

Because of the staining property, it gives good wear time of 6-7 hours. It definitely fades after that time span, but evenly, leaving a beautiful stain behind.

Summing up pros and cons for quick reference:


  • Beautiful shade
  • Lasts longer than average
  • Moisturizing on lips
  • Stains evenly and beautifully
  • Cheap packaging
  • Bit on pricier side

This image will give you some sort of idea about how this lippie looks on me. I have worn it as a stain here by dabbing my finger over it. Sorry for the messy hair guys.. I was just out of  shower and did not even comb :( Makeup-wise nothing much.. I have not applied any base here, just my beloved La Shield sunscreen, groomed my eyebrows and this lipstick :)

Overall Thought:

All in all, it is one of a kind product. This is one of those shades I am most comfortable to pull off. This has become my go-to everyday shade currently. For day time I prefer to use it as a stain. At the same time it can transform any simple day time look into a glam night time look if applied with the full color intensity! It does not require much prepping of lips, does not require high maintenance after application and instantly brightens up my face! I can see it working across a wide spectrum of skin tones as well.

I definitely recommend this. You should give it a try for the uniqueness of the product and if shiny bright pink/red pout is your thing!

Rating: 4.5/5 (Had it been priced below 450/- , it would have got a 5/5)

Thanks for reading folks.. will see you soon :)
