Other than this being on sale what first attracted me to these lipstick was the fact that it had a matte nude lipstick. I have been looking for one forever but haven't been satisfied with anyone I've found. Then when I saw the gorgeous deep purple color I just couldn't resist. The two colors I got were Nude Attitude 001 and Black Cherry 477. And just look at the packaging guys, if you follow me on twitter (@Dream_inStyle) then you know of my obsession with black and gold. Sigh... They are just so beautiful.
Let's start with Nude Attitude first, when I swatched this color on my hand it was a really nice nude with an orange undertone. Then when I got home and tired this I found I really wasn't all that pleased with the formula. It being a matte color I knew the formula would be dry but this was very opaque as well. It wasn't until I used a lip scrub and added an lip balm underneath and a few generous coast I was pleased with the color. It was cheap to begin with so I'm not too disappointed but I just wished that it was more pigmented.
The other color Black Cherry also has the same problem it's not pigmented enough. But on the other hand it is a cream formula so it does go on a lot nicer than the nude. You do however have to add several coats to get it as dark as it appears in the tube. But once you do the color is really gorgeous. Also it's important to use a lip scrub before hand to get rid of any dry skin.
All in all these lipsticks are okay, they didn't blow me away and I didn't hate them, it might take a few extra steps to get the finished look you were going for but when your done your lips do look really good. I've gotten a lot of complements from these lipsticks especially the Black Cherry.
