This Trish McEvoy lip colour normally retails at around £18, and in all honesty it is a brand I hadn't heard of. Despite this, the packaging is really nice with a quilted effect giving the kind of luxurious feel that I would expect from something worth nearly $30. This quality continues to the casing, a robust case with a slick feel - and on a side note I love the simplistic branding of this company.
As mentioned bright colours aren't usually my thing but the rich hues in this colour are vibrant yet not overpowering which is a great balance to find. I hate lipsticks that look like you should be wiping them off your forehead after your Great Aunt has kissed you - not nice. Anyway . . it has a great consistency making it easy to apply, even for a lipstick amateur like myself, and after a few dabs it doesn't leave much residue so won't make your boyfriend wear it too.
Verdict? I like it, even as a sceptic. It may be a bit more expensive than other brands like L'Oreal, Rimmel London or Maybelline but it is a quality product and definitely something I would but if I was treating myself.
Thanks for reading!
