But then they brought out mattes. Any my resolve flew out the window.
Admittedly I had always lusted over Black Orchid, which was limited edition and I missed. When I saw they were bringing out Black Dahlia in matte, I was sorely tempted. Then House of Fraser was offering 10 points per £1, and with 10% discount the lipstick worked out at £30. Still a lot, but more acceptable to me...
So moving swiftly on from my lack of restraint. I understand entirely with high end lipsticks you are paying for the name and the packaging... but it sure is pretty!
|Though reflective packaging isn't the best for photos with my amazing skills|
It is all very sleek and black, and feel heavy and solid. All the signs of a high end luxe product. It certainly does look the part, but how does the lipstick stack up?
Prepare yourself for possibly the worst lip swatch I have ever done.

This colour is still available on Selfridges and House of Fraser!
I just received some more Memeshop items and some Lime Crime, plus I still have to do my foundation review! I was going to save my 100th post for my giveaway winner but then I messed that up, so I have lots coming up!
