Accessorize Beauty Intense Colour Lipstick in Obsessed* – £4.95
available from Accessorize and Superdrug

The other day I showcased one of Accessorize’s new lipsticks in Passionate – a dark, intense burgundy taking your lips over to the dark side with a gothic nod to this AW12’s trend. Today we are flipping to the other side of the colour spectrum as I introduce you to Obsessed – a creamy nude with enough pinky-brown tones to make it wearable, not ghostly. Nude lipsticks can be a dangerous territory for many, and the battle to find a complimentary rather than corpse-like colour is always a tricky one. This lipstick has a slight warmth to it, making it quite a flattering nude and suits my skin tone well. I think if you were any darker though, it may be a little stark and less favourable.

The consistency isn’t really really smooth, but is nice enough and gives you a matte finish that lasts well. The scent of these lipsticks is very reminiscent of the sweet, vanilla fragrance more familiar with MAC lipsticks and Obsessed actually reminds me a little bit of Myth from the same brand. I’ve recently been wearing a pink-toned gloss over this lipstick to give it a little more oomph and make it the perfect accompaniment for smokey eyes and heavy brows. (neither of which I am sporting above!)

So nude lips, yay or nay?

    I think the packaging is so lovely. I really want to like these products and the superdrug branch near me has just got a huge wall full in.. The other shade you showed reminded me so much of Topshops "Vamp" which is one of my favourite lipsticks of all time!

    You suit a nude lip so much! Haven't tried any of the Accessorize makeup yet, but I like the look of them so far!

    What a beautiful colour! It might make me look a little washed out, but it looks beautiful in bullet form, and really suits you. I am tempted to try it out anyway.

    I know this is a bit random but have you ever watched the American series Dexter?
    You really remind me of Rita. Google her… She's gorgeous.

    This is a lovely shade. I think it'd be too pale on me though! xo

    I am just so impressed by these lipsticks and who they are by!!

    Yay for nude lipsticks, just not for me, I guess. It looks pretty on other people, including this shade on you, but I'm not a fan of it on me. Something about the shade of my teeth changing and my cheeks appearing more pink suddenly πŸ™‚ changes my complexion, I think. I might give it another go, though. Specially now, when I have a bit of tan on after the summer, which makes my skin seem more glow-y

    Oh my gosh the packaging is so adorable! Does anyone know if the lipsticks are also available in Germany?

  20. 16th August 2012 / 8:25 am

    This looks like it could be a pain to apply. Doesn't seem smooth like you mentioned. But a gorgeous nude nonetheless. Really impressed by Accesorize's makeup offerings. Thanks for bringing this to my attention xx

    This shade looks gorgeous with your skintone. It wouldnt suit me but I love the berry coloured one. Great post x

    Love the packaging (bit of a sucker for abything that looks pretty!) but the quality of the lipstick doesn't look too on point! I love the cheaper brands when trying out a new colour, but I really think that with a colour like this which works for all ocassions and seasons, it's best to invest in a high quality, good pigment lipstick! Huge fan of the colour though, really suits your skin tone πŸ™‚

    I love the case! To bad nude lips dont suit me at all πŸ™

  29. 28th August 2012 / 6:56 am

    Nude lipstick doesn't suits me as well but it definitely helps me when hiding my lip lines and dryness of my lip.

    cute packaging but would not suit my skin tone!
