Deborah Milano shine creator lipstick- shade 13*
I was sent this lipstick the other day by Deborah Milano. Deborah Milano is one of the top Italian makeup brands so I was excited to try something from them. They've jsut came over to the UK- hopefully it's just as popular over here!
I decided to pick this shade from the shine creator range which says 13 on the lid but as there's no shade names on the website I can't link you to the exact one I got! It was quite a guess as to which lipstick shade I went for as the colours also weren't that clear on the site but I picked a nice red colour which thankfully I liked! It's got a formulation quite similar to the Revlon lip butters which I'm sure you'll of heard of before as it's got quite a sheer pigmentation but it's very moisturising at the same time. The colour comes out like a pale red/pink colour and look nice and natural on the lips. The staying powers isn't great as you'd expect for such a moisturising formula. I'd say you have to reapply every 2-3 hours or after I've eaten/drank which I guess could be worse! It has SPF15 in it which is great to protect your lips- especially with the warm weather coming up (who am I kidding- we're in England not Italy.)
The packaging is nice and quite unique and I also like how the logo is imprinted onto the bullet (a nice touch but once you've used it you can't tell it was there). It has has a scent very similar to vaseline which is quite pleasant and not too strong.
The shine creator lipsticks retail for £8.50 which is above UK drugstore prices but still reasonable compared to mac etc. Overall this is a nice lipstick, they have a good colour range and the formula/packaging is good too! I would like to see them bringing shade names and proper swatches to the website as it would make sense to!
