After last weeks X Factor my twitter went crazy talking about the lipstick Cheryl Cole was wearing. I love Cheryl and it was such a gorgeous autumn shade so I had to find out what it was. Elle magazine did an online feature of her makeup and I found out from there that it was L'Oreal Color Riche in Plum Passion - I went straight on the internet to look for it. Unfortunately it was sold out on both Boots and Superdrug's websites, but I managed to find it on amazon for £2.99!! (it was about £8 from Boots and Superdrug).
When the lipstick arrived two days later, I was so excited to try it but when I opened it I was a bit unsure as it had glitter through it. I am not a glittery makeup kind of girl - matte all the way! However, when I put it on it was a gorgeous plum/dark red colour and you couldn't see the glitter at all. It goes on quite glossy but eventually fades to a semi-matte finish. I wore it all day in work and only had to touch it up at lunch time which I was quite impressed with.
The only thing I'd say I didn't like about it was the scent, it's really strongly perfumed and kind of smells like old lady perfume (you know what I mean). The scent does eventually go away and other than that I'd say this will be a lipstick i'll be wearing a lot during the Autumn/Winter period. I wouldn't pay £8 for it but at a bargain price of £2.99, I can't complain!
Did you jump on the band wagon and order Cheryl's X Factor lipstick? What do you think of it?
P.S sorry about the terrible application in the photo, it's a bit squint!
