I am quite the lipstick lover/hoarder and have so many shades in my collection from the palest nude to the brightest purple.
Although that doesn't mean that I don't need more!
Always a fan of new lipstick launches, I was very excited when I heard about the Collection Exclusive lipsticks from L'oreal.
When one of your favourite brands releases a new product, it's pretty exciting but when that product is inspired by celebrities then the excitement goes to that of epic proportions.
The first collection was a range of nudes inspired by the skin tone of different celebrities followed by a red collection soon after.
I may have been a bit late picking these up but I still thought you guys might be interested in hearing my thoughts so read on!
What They Say
The nudes collection consists of 6 custom made nude shades chosen by 6 iconic L'oreal spokespersons for a naturally radiant lip colour.
The exclusive reds collection included 4 custom made, enriching matte red shades that are tailored to every skin tone.
Enriched with velvet spheres, pure pigments and jojoba oil, these mattes will leave lips feeling more hydrated after application.
What I Say
Firstly, I think we all agree that the packaging of these lipsticks is amazing, especially considering it's drug store and I love the pattern on the red lipstick.
I chose the shades inspired by Eva Longoria as my foundation tends to be quite dark when I'm tanned.
I first tried the nude shade and it felt so creamy and hydrating on the lips, a peachy nude that's perfect for the days where you have a statement eye or just want a fuss free beautiful lip colour.
The red shade is a lovely sort of burnt/terracotta style red and a shade that I don't think I have anything like already.
Being a matte shade, I was worried that it would be drying but it just glides onto the lips and feels so creamy, not drying in the slightest.
They last well throughout the day but I do like to top them up after eating and drinking, I definitely think you guys should check them out (I have my eye on Blake's Red next!).
