Makeup Deception! Lancome Colour Design

I have been fooled-by a lipstick! :(
I expected this product to be a muted, pink bordering on nude. In stick form in looks extremely manageable and as someone who appreciates a more 'understated look' I had some thought this would become a makeup staple. But when I put it on my lips it was a much more vibrant pink and bordered on having purple hues!


That being said the formula itself is lovely, it glides on and moisturizes well. The packaging is a little bland and doesn't look high-end but I suppose it's the product that counts *rolls eyes*


After being a little disappointed I now embrace this colour. It is brought out for special occasions and sometimes just smudged on my lips so it looks more like a lip tint.

Have you used any lipsticks that really surprised you?
Thanks for reading and happy weekend :)
