The packaging of these are so beautiful, they are matte black tubes with gold bands and detailing, which make them look so chic and elegant, nothing like the price tag. Also, I thought i'd mention that the lipsticks do have an old granny lipstick smell, which some may hate, but it doesn't bother me too much.
First up is the 'Perfect Nudes' collection, I picked up J Lo's Nude, which is a light pinky beige colour (it's the same as Cheryl's nude). The lipstick is quite sheer, and only leaves a light wash of colour, which is slightly disappointing. However, it is a very moisturising formula, therefore making it easy to wear for an everyday natural look. I've heard many people rave about this particular colour, but I personally think it doesn't suit me too well as it's a tad bit too light for me.
Next is the 'Pure Reds' collection, I was really excited for this as i've been on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick for a very long time. I picked up Blake's Pure Red, this is a classic true blue-based red, which looks absolutely stunning. Unlike the nude collection, this lipstick is super pigmented, to the point where when I take it off, it leaves a stain. It has a really nice satin finish, almost matte, but it isn't drying at all and glides onto the lips very smoothly without clinging onto anything.
I am completely in love with the red lipstick, I definitely recommend you to try it out, although I was slightly disappointed with the nude, you should still check out the range to see if there will be any colours that would suit your skin, I definitely will be going back to look at the other colours. These are available for £6.99 at Boots and Superdrug.
