Although there are only a few shades in the collection, the price point means this is a great intro into the matte trend and the perfect way to change up your look for a new season. The focus is very much on coral and pink tones that suit our spring wardrobes, but I have it on good authority that they'll be adding to the colour spectrum over the year. The lipstick glides over lips to deposit a serious hit of colour without dragging, leaving a finish that's matte enough to look modern but without looking super dry; there's nothing worse than a matte lipstick clinging to every speck of dryness, so the combination of ingredients ensures that doesn't happen. I personally found the nude shade to be a little too nude and not great on my slightly dry lips, but the other tones are easy to wear and as comfortable as a lipstick gets. I'd love to see some berry tones within the collection, but this is a great starting point - especially as they're priced at a bargainous £5.50 each! At a third less than the MAC formula that's been incredibly popular over the last few years, you can't really say no.
