When I first put it on I thought "oh god do I look like a drag queen?!" but after being brave and not wiping it off, I took a few photos and got used to it, then I started to quite like it.... and then love it! It's a brand new look for me and although I got a little surprise everytime I looked in the mirror, it was a surprise in a good way! It really is a statement and I don't know what's been holding me back before!
The colour is so bold. This particular one is a 'matt lipstick', in colour 206. It's really unusual, like a mixture of pink, red and orange all rolled into one. It's softer than a bright red lip and so easier to start off with for a bright-lip newbie like myself. The colour is very pigmented. It lasted a whopping 3 hours on my lips before it needed reapplying- very impressive considering the purse-friendly price tag!
For anyone else that has never tried a bold lipstick, I urge you to be brave and go for it!
