I am pretty sure my elderly neighbour thought I was the clown from "IT" (the movie) when I smiled at her this morning. She clutched her hubby's arm in shock when she saw me and then visibly paled when I smiled (rather brightly) at her. I think she was happy that she hadn't had her cataracts removed yet.
However much I may not like the colour, it wears fantastically well. I got a good 3 (almost 4) hours out of the colour (and 3 cups of coffee and 2 ryevitas) and not a dry patch or flake in sight. Very good for a budget lipstick that I am trying to get off my lips in a most surreptitious way (rubbing lips together vigorously, licking often).
Even though I won this one, I think the price point is pretty reasonable, coming in at under €7, it is not going to break the bank. While shade #12 might not be easy on the eye, it's easy enough on the purse.
Packaging is fairly functional, black plastic with Kate's signature in red in the lid. A bit easy to lose to the bottomless pits of my Handbag though, so if this doesn't make an appearance for the challenge again... I will know where to go digging for it when Halloween comes around...
