My lipstick collection is getting a little too bright and colourful (red, maroon, tangerine…) and so the other week I grabbed this lipstick in an effort to find something slightly more neutral. I hadn’t purchased anything from SHE for years – I remember I used to own a few of their nail polishes – and I was quite excited to stumble across their shelf in Priceline.
The lipstick range offers an incredible 23 shades – and the one I snapped up was Charm. I’m not sure how to describe the colour – sort of a peach/salmon, with a gorgeous gold shimmer, if that makes any sense! It’s a great everyday colour with a demi-matt finish, perfect for the warmer months.
And it’s a dream to wear! The SHE lipsticks contain aloe vera, calendula, vitamin E, avocado oil, jojoba oil and evening primrose oil – so it’s super creamy and leaves your lips moisturised long after it wears off. It feels like a lip balm, but with the colour pay-off of a lipstick, and it lasts a good 3 hours without eating. It also smells quite relaxing due to the essential oils.
The colour of Charm comes out almost too soft and pastel on my lips, due to my darker skin tone, but works a treat when I just want something light to wear during the day.
And the packaging:
The sleek, golden tube that this lipstick comes in makes it appear much more expensive that it actually is. And it’s been rolling around in my bag for a few weeks now, and still looks brand new – thanks to the lid snapping into place, and the embossed lettering on the side not scratching or wearing away.
The fine print:
