I have had an obsession with finding a pinky nude lipstick for a long time, I found that some pinky-nudes were that bit too much of a blue pink tone or a pastel shade and just really didn't suit me. I had found the perfect shade in 17's mirror shine lipstick in Beehive but mine (in the original blue tube) was broken by my niece who enjoys raiding my bag to find my 'lipdip' to put all over her face, it was too cute to be mad, so when I went to buy a new one I bought the new packaged lipsticks and it wasn't the same at all, the colour and formula was completely different, I was soo disappointed.
So I was very excited when I heard that L'Oreal were releasing a range of nude lipsticks, surely I would find the perfect shade?? I hunted nearly every Boots and Superdrug in town and in every shop the new Collection Privee lipsticks and testers had been ransacked, it took me ages to actually swatch the range, and then I found my perfect nude lipstick and it was by my fellow Geordie Cheryl! The Collection Privee lipsticks are £8.19, and you can find them here.
The lipstick feels lovely and moisturising and the colour lasts for about 2-3 hours, the balmy feeling disappears after about half an hour though which makes you think you need to keep reapplying but the colour lasts quite well. I really like the packaging of the lipstick but I do find black matte packaging annoying when it gets messy.
I really love this lipstick, I have worn it constantly since I bought it, it's perfect for everyday and for an evening look paired with a smokey eye. I'm definitely tempted to try more of the L'Oreal Colour Riche range.
