Hello there you lovely lot! Gosh the task of getting through the week with my sanity intact has definitely been challenging & then some dolls. After a wonderful week of overtime at work I literately cannot wait for the bank holiday weekend to arrive so I can finally relax...I see myself getting all kinds of emotional come tomorrow afternoon...just the though of the lie-ins that will be had *sniffs*
My lovely friend Jo aka Mademoiselle Lala sent me a delightful care package a while back, because she's just an absolute sweetheart really whom I adore to pieces! Amongst the lovely bits & bobs she kindly sent my way, she also included some of the new Collection Colour Pro Lip Lacquers which I've been rocking on the lips of late & come in 4 different shades. The two I have are It Girl which is a delightfully bright pink & this one I have to share with you today, Show Off, a vividly bright coral shade, enough to brighten up any lip.
I'm supposing these lip lacquers are Collections spin on the infamous Rimmel Apocalips that everyone went doolally over not long ago. I myself only own one which I've not tried yet so couldn't compare, but judging by swatches I've seen the Collection lip lacquer is slightly less pigmented compared to the Rimmel. Though this doesn't bother me too greatly as just a hint of colour on the lips is what I prefer.
The Colour Pro Lip Lacquers come with your usual skinny doe foot applicator affair for easy application & whilst not being hugely pigmented you still get a nice colour pay off. The formula I found to be surprisingly thick which did drag on the lips a wee bit but the next time I applied it I made sure to apply a slick of lipbalm beforehand as I would with lipstick & it simply glided on :)
As you can see it definitely delivers on the high gloss shine finish & the coral shade is lovely, not too bright yet a nice pop of colour on the lips. Though I will say...it may be a good idea to wear an updo with these, as flyaway hairs WILL get stuck to those glossy lips! ;)
Thanks for reading dolls! Collection Colour Pro Lip Lacquers retail from £4.19 & are available to get at Boots & online. Have you tried these?
Lotsa love to ya!
