Makemania Curvy Lip Liquid Red Beige - My Perfect Nude Gloss?

Makemania, a daughter brand of B&C labs, is a Japanese drugstore line famous for their "Lip Silicone" (glassy gloss that make your lip extra plump without any sting). I ordered this Curvy Lip Liquid last year at Adam Beauty at a clearance price of 5-6 dollars, when their glosses usually retail for around 12 dollars a piece (which is actually a low to mid-range price for Japanese drugstore makeup). 
The Curvy Liquid Lip gloss has a long, furry applicator that got a fair bit of resilience- It's great for soaking up and dispensing the gloss but I really don't get why would they combine a squeeze tube with a wand applicator (and the relatively bigger opening)...It might be great for using till the last drop, it's also quite leak-prone.
Maybelline Bronze Beam, Red Beige, Revlon Nude Lustre, Revlon Rosy Lip Tint - Unlike what's on the packaging (which features a pretty model with a nice creamy brown red lips), Red Beige shows up much lighter, more like a shimmery beige with only the slightest red undertone.
Makemania Curvy Lip Liquid Red Beige on lips - As boring as "shimmery beige" sounds, there is something really flattering about the shade - it somehow gives my skin a soft glow when I am paler and works with my darker skin tone (I tan so easily it's not even funny) by resonating with the summer glow. As with most glossy and long-lasting gloss, this is a little sticky but it's nothing unbearable.
Screw the "blue-based lip gloss makes teeth whiter" theory (blue indeed cancels out yellow...but it's not like you apply it straight to your teeth)...Warm toned glosses totally work better.
