This lipstick is extremely pigmented and full on barbie pink. It is so creamy and becomes opaque in only a few swipes. This is the first amplified lipstick I have tried and the formula is amazing, you really can’t fault the colour pay off. Unfortunately I really struggled to get this colour to suit my complexion, I know I am going to sound really ungrateful for saying this, but i’m really not! You know when a colour is just not you, I really wanted to love it as its the first bit of makeup Lew chose for me himself, but it’s just so not my colour. Personally I think it would be much more suited to paler skin tones, with quite bold eye makeup. The colour is also a favourite of Lady GaGa, gotta love a bit of Gargs!
This nail varnish shade on the other hand is perfectly me. Again its a lovely barbie pink and very creamy looking, the colour really reminds me of candy floss. My only niggle with this is the application, it took 3 coats and still looked really streaky, in the end I gave up and put a top coat on which actually ended up evening the colour out..so strange?! Anyone else find this? The colour is so cute, it’s so worth it though. ♥
