I am a bit behind on posts, so this photo was taken before my holiday hence the sudden disappearance of my tan, even though it is starting to fade fast now anyway! *sad face*
The packaging on this is really nice, the shape is the same as the other lipsticks in the color riche collection but this has matte black casing with gold finishing. It just makes the lipstick look a lot more expensive than it is and I think I prefer it to this colour combo.
Freida’s Nude is a shimmery mauve based shade with a slight brown tone. It has a lovely sheen to it without being glittery at all giving my lips a nice healthy dose of colour. I found that it didn’t last very long on me though, I would say about 2-3 hours but it just means that I have to top it up a little bit more often which I don’t mind too much. I just have to remember not to wear it on days where I can’t touch up my makeup. The lipstick swatches quite sheer to begin with but can be built to give it a bit more of an opaque finish. I would say that it feels similar on the lip to MAC’s cremesheen finish as it has the same moisturising feel to it.
Overall I do like this shade but it just needs a bit more staying power as I can be really lazy at reapplying and like a lipstick that lasts a bit longer. ♥
