I have, however, 'splashed out' on a less nude, more colourful, Lip colour. Say hello to Speak Louder - the name says everything.
I absolutely fell in love with this Lipstick. The colour really suits my colouring and enhances everything! The texture is pretty good.. It doesn't dry out my lips but also doesn't keep them glossy.
The finish is Cremesheen and I found that this finish lasts a hell of a lot longer than most of my lipsticks but can be slightly drying.
The colour is on the blue side of red (if you get me blud).. So it's a more purple-red-pink than just pink!
The staying power is remarkable. I looked for the famous lip stain on my glass of juice this morning, and there wasn't a single bit of colouring. I also only applied twice while at work and it stayed on my lips perfectly, for a good 7 hours!
I love the colour. It's the reason I bought it. But the other details make this my number one Lippy at the moment.
