This is truly a lovely lipstick from Collection 2000 or shall I now say just Collection, yep I still can't get my head round the new shortened name. I kept misplacing this lipstick so I meant to do this review a lot earlier.
Sadly this colour '10 Berry Blast' is hard to find lately and your best bet is Ebay. It doesn't seem to be on their site any more and I haven't seen this particular shade in store for a long time. I wonder why? It's in the new packaging so it's all strange to me.
Lasting Colour lipstick comes in a standard plastic black shiny casing with the little Collection logo on top in pink. Quite sturdy packaging and I like it better than their old style, it's much more classy.
Berry Blast is a deep milky plum purple with a cream finish. It seems to have a slight blue sheen to it. I find this lipstick to be very opaque and pigmented and last for a good 3 plus hours with drinking, it also leaves a nice subtle even stain as it wears off and has a very creamy texture although I wouldn't call it hydrating nor drying.
There is a scent that is like artificial strawberry, I don't really like it but it doesn't seem to be overpowering and once you put it on you don't notice it and no bad taste either.
Overall a good pigmented long lasting lipstick with the same colour on the lips as you see on the bullet. RRP is £2.99.
