Review: Shanghai Suzy Lipsticks

Miss Georgia Pink Plum, Miss Sanja Fuchsia and Miss Sally Watermelon

I was looking through the Bellabox online store recently trying to pick something to use my points on when I saw these 3 lipsticks.  I've seen a few reviews on this fairly new brand and all of them were glowing so I was intrigued to try them out.  I picked up the only 3 colours that were available: Miss Georgia Pink Plum, Miss Sanja Fuchsia and Miss Sally Watermelon.  Cool names huh!  

Shanghai Suzy are a lipstick only cosmetics brand that specialise in bright pigmented colours.  The lipsticks come in one of two formulas: Nourish or Matte and each colour is limited edition with the idea that new colours come out every season. At a RRP of $12.95 it makes it easy and affordable to update your makeup with the season.

I absolutely adore the packaging of these lipsticks.  The top has a square of colour that indicates the lipstick shade making it so easy to pick up the one you're looking for in a sea of lipsticks without having to read shade names.  On the bottom is the shade name as well as the formula type.  The lipsticks are housed in a black cube and the lid clicks on securely.

Like everyone else who has tried these lipsticks I was really impressed.  The nourish formula really does feel nourishing on the lips and the colour pay-off is amazing.  I found it needed a top up after a couple of hours but that's to be expected and it feels so hydrating on the lips I was looking forward to re-applying.  The matte formula is surprisingly quite nourishing too - it doesn't seem to pull or highlight any dry parts and again the colour pay-off is fantastic.  The matte formula lasted a lot longer than the nourish and left a nice stain on my lips.

I couldn't finish this review without telling you about the scent of these lipsticks.  As soon as I unclicked the lid of the lipstick I was greeted with the amazing scent of grape... reminding me of my child hood days of chewing grape hubba bubba.  The fragrance doesn't last long on the lips but it's a nice little touch to the lipsticks that I was really impressed with.

I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for each new season's release and picking up some more colours to add to my collection.
