You'll know if you are a regular reader of my blog that I already have one of these in the shade Soft spoken and I absolutely love it. Today I thought I would review a couple of the darker shades for you and let you know how they do against the more nude shades.
The two shades I added to my collection are Vintage which is a gorgeous deep red burgundy shade and Stone fox which is the most incredible blue grey shade. The formula of these is beautiful, I've heard a lot of people say how they don't like them as the formula doesn't set down however I really like that. They are described as a cream lipstick and in my opinion that is the perfect way to describe them. The formula is quite thin however you get the most incredible colour pay off in just one single swipe. These don't dry down on the lips to a matte finish meaning they feel a lot more comfortable.
I was a little bit worried about bleeding with these two shades with them being a fairly thin formula however I have absolutely no problems at all. In terms of wear time I find these do actually wear better than some of the matte liquid lipsticks I've tried as they don't flake due to them being a cream. I find I can get a good 7 hours out of these before they need to be removed and reapplied. Considering reapplication I find these really easy to use for topping up around the inside of the mouth after eating as again due to the creamy formula it doesn't cause them to flake or show different colours.
Overall I really love these and would highly suggest that you give them a go if you are looking for a more comfortable but still longlasting lip colour.
