I’m always drawn to the lipsticks at make-up counters, lined up and colourful, standing to attention waiting for you to pick your perfect shade. Never normally one to pick a shade that’s too ‘out there’ I tend to stick to the nude tones with an occasional red slipping into the basket.
This lipstick – Delicate Rose – is a part of the Colour Riche exclusive collection by Doutzen Kroes, an inspirational beauty and L’Oréal Paris Brand Ambassador.
Buttery soft and with some serious staying power (seriously I showered and scrubbed but I can still see the swatches) this lipstick will add that soft touch of pink to any look, perfect to brighten up a dull winters day or to see in the spring sunshine.
With a colour that really builds with additional applications, it’s quite easy to wear this as a sheer pink shade with just a quick lick across the lips or as a much more impactful bold statement with a couple of additional layers.
The packaging by L’Oréal really bridges the gap between drug-store and luxury. The gold and black provide a professional and classy look and feel that can rival brands twice as expensive.
Being experimental with makeup can sometimes seem like a waste of money especially if you later decide it’s not the product for you. WOW FreeStuff can help break down the barrier with fantastic opportunities to get your hands on some freebies, from make-up to gift cards.
Delicate Rose is definitely a brighter shade than I would normally wear. I would ordinarily have admired it and moved on. Trying it for free has broadened my horizons, who knew that such a bright pink shade would suit me?
What are your make-up surprises? Are there any shades you have tried recently that you wouldn’t normally?
