I havent had time to wear it but the following review is just a few snaps I took and my initial opinion on it.
I purchased Shade 8 - Love Struck which is a lovely bright, bold, fuschia pink.
So, on to the review. The casing of this lipstick is something im not really a fan of. Its got flowers and owls all over it. While i like floral designs the navy blue of the back ground and the type of flowers they are doesnt really appeal to me. Although I dont like the design it is different to everything else on the market and it stands out. Its also a really sturdy case and the lid clicks shut which is good.
The colour is true to the bullet. The colour on the lid is supposedly the same so its easy to locate in your make up collection but it isnt. Its not too far off, its just a tad lighter.
The lipstick is a matte effect and so I can imagine that it could be quite drying and I would believe that the staying power is on a par with other matte lipsticks on the market.
One downside which I did notice straight away is that when using the bullet to apply to the lips it can drag a little, this is probably due to the fact that the lipstick is a true matte and so has no moisturising properties. The bullet also smells sweet and vanillary which im not really a fan of but the smell doesnt hang around after application so you cant complain.
(Excuse the awful photo!)
This shows what the colour is like on my lips. The colour payoff is really good. You only need one swipe for a good layer of colour. The picture shows the colour as being quite light although in real life it is a tad brighter and darker (if that makes sense..).
All in all im really happy with this lipstick and theres nothing that wouldnt stop me purchasing again in a different shade.
What lipstick do you favour?
