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?
