Lancome Color Fever Lipcolor - 130 Soho Red

Lancome's Color Fever Lipcolor in 130 Soho Red is a coral red. It is a creamy consistency and very nice to wear. The colour is bright, which is refreshing for me here in Melbourne where the weather is currently cold and days are dark early. I'd forgotten I had this lipstick and was very pleased to rediscover it.

Illamasqua Lipstick- Liable

When I read that there was going to be a new Illamasqua red lipstick some time back, I was delighted - a new orange red called Liable! I purchased Liable from ASOS as they don't charge postage to Australia and it arrived safe and sound much to my absolute joy. Okay, the colour is stunning, an orange red... but still very much red. I find that a lot of orange reds are more orange than red but this lipstick is definitely more red so a 10 out of 10 for colour! I was however incredibly disappointed to discover that this is probably one of the most matte lipsticks I have ever bought and not in a good way. The product drags on the lips leaving bits on the bullet and it feels as though it could snap at any second. It is so dry it is a challenge to fill the entire lips section in - the inner middle of my lips just couldn't take the colour. I think I may need to experiment with some balm underneath to see if it that makes a difference. The colour is amazing, but unless you are looking for a battle every time you apply this product - I find it difficult to recommend.
