Shanghai Suzy has done it again. Their latest collection, Spring '14/Summer '15, was recently released and, once again, it contains a selection of absolutely beautiful shades to welcome in the warmer weather. Unlike their previous collection, Autumn/Winter '14, this one contains a selection of shades in both Matte and Nourish formulas which really excited me as I'm typically a creme formula gal!
Miss Leah is describe as a baby cocoa shade. It is a pink based nude that I think will suit a lot of people. This colour has a nourish finish.
Miss Nicole is described a burgundy brown. This one has a matte finish. Miss Nicole is definitely not a 'me' colour but I'll be sure to give it a bit more of a try before I write it off completely.
Miss Bree is a described as a pink blush shade and I totally see that. It's a wearable matte pink shade that I think provides enough colour to be a 'pop' without being something difficult to wear.
Miss Olivia is an apricot shade that, once again, has a nourish formula. It's quite a sheer apricot colour but I think it's a great accompaniment to a bronze/gold eye look
Miss Christina is described as a neon guava shade. It is a beautiful matte bright coral pink that I think will appeal to so many people.
Miss Mia is a red based pink shade that Shanghai Suzy describes as foxy hibiscus. I don't tend to opt for matte red lipsticks but I think this pink/red shade will be the exception. I haven't worn this one out of the house yet as I'm still unsure that the shade suits me.
Miss Courtney is described as an electric flamingo shade. It's a matte neon cool toned pink shade that definitely takes some guts to pull off. It'll definitely be the star of any make up look!
Miss Ally is a true purple matte lip colour that I really like, though I'm again yet to wear. I've been gravitating towards purple lips a fair bit lately (granted I generally opt for something more subtle) so this is just the natural progression for me, I suppose.
As you can see from the swatches above, the Shanghai Suzy Spring '14/Summer '15 collection is absolutely beautiful. There is definitely a shade (or four) for everyone and I like the ratio of wearable to bold lip colours.
These lipsticks, like those in the Autumn/Winter '14 collection, have the oh-so-delicious grape scent that reminds me of Hubba Bubba and I can't help but want to eat them as I try apply them. It's okay as long as I don't, right? I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the Nourish formula but it's no surprise that I really like it. I'll admit that I don't find the Nourish lipsticks to be as comfortable as MAC's Cremesheens but, if I'm honest, I've never found anything that compares to how they feel!
Shanghai Suzy lipsticks are incredibly affordable, at $12.95 each. If the whole (or a majority) of this Spring '14/Summer '15 collection appeals to you I'd highly recommend you pick up Shanghai Suzy Wardrobe which is what I did. The Wardrobe has all eight shades for $65.00 which equals just over $8.00 each. Bargain!
