As some of you may know Shanghai Suzy, Australian owned affordable lipstick brand, has been a favourite brand of mine since launching and it just keeps getting better. The latest 70’s collection is a unique micro-release of 5 lipsticks of varying finishing. Let’s just say the collection has us weak at the knees.
The latest release Shanghai Suzy did we saw a few new finishes be introduced and for this collection there are a total of 4 different finishes; matte, shimmer, nourish and semi-matte. All boast that trademark Shanghai Suzy bubblegum scent with the packaging going back to the original matte black over the transparent lids which I do prefer. All retail for the affordable $12.95 which makes them a whole lot sweeter too!
Let’s started with the mattes! There are two shades and these are probably my personal picks from the range. Dusky Rose is rosy pink but it warm so it will suit most skin tones. This reminds me of Miss Tanielle Desert Rose from the last collection but definitely with more warmth so more of you will find it wearable for everyday. I can see this featuring heavily in my rotation that’s for sure! The other matte finish is Eggplant which is a plum shade but I would say it almost has some brown, warm undertones. It’s certainly a unique shade but I’m excited to start wearing it. The only semi-matte this time around is Golden Peach which will suit bronzed babes or those of us who love to fake tan. It’s very peachy and golden but it doesn’t make your teeth look yellow – win!
If you didn’t see a frosted pink coming then you’re crazy! Frosted Candy is a nourish finish infused with vitamin E and Jojoba so it’s going to be super comfy throughout the day. The colour is a light candy pink and is for those who wish to be a little daring and playful. For me I’m not sure it’s one I can pull off but it’s certainly something I’m going to experiment with. Much like the last collection the shimmer finish lipsticks surprisingly have been a firm favourite and Raspberry Sorbet is no different. Think mid-tine raspberry hues with a sparkle running through. It’s so fun and different!
Overall it’s a fun collection boasting unique shades however it’s not the most wearable collection. As I said the mattes are both staple, everyday colours for the Autumn time but if you’re daring enough to try another shade definitely let me know!
Have you tried any of the collection? What were your thoughts?
