Accessorize Lipstick Smitten Review & Swatches

First official makeup blog post of 2013! I wanted to show you something so very pretty. A lipstick with floral prints....butterflies.... and an owl. On top of that, it's called 'Smitten'! I love that word, because I feel it all the time.
*If you hate anti-climaxes, I apologize in advance. But it's not like the series finale of 'Lost'.
You take off the colored top, and there's some lipstick inside =)
Accessorize Smitten Swatch
Love the color, love the shade name, but the finish is neither here nor there. Not matte, not satin..... just chalky. It emphasizes dry lips & lines so much! I exfoliated and balmed my lips before application, and it still looks like that =\. I may have to wear it with a lip gloss in the future. I'd tell you it's wear time, but I always ended up wiping it off after a while. I so wish it was just a simple creamy/lustre lipstick.
Fragranced? It has a very mild scent, which I can't really describe. Maybe custard powder?
Not quite. But I really really wanted to be. This is where the packaging makes up for the rubbish performance of the product.
I don't regret buying it at all...... because it was a darling to photograph =)

Price ~ £4.99 (Rs.439) from Superdrug.
My Rating:
  • Packaging ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 5/5
  • Lipstick ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 2.5/5
What do you think? Getting it?
Look..... look at it again. So pretty! As are all Accessorize makeup!

  23. Love the color, it's really gorgeous.
    I love putting lipstick with my ring finger at times & the idea of a tiny pot inside the top cover is so adorable. Love it.

  24. It's lovely packaging and a lovely shade but one that will definitely wash out most Indian skin tones! My NC 40 for sure :/

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
