A couple of days ago I posted a review on the Natural Collection Lipstick in shade 'Sorbet' and could give it nothing but positive reviews. Today it's the turn of the famous 'Apple Blossom' popular amongst bloggers, but reeeeally not a personal favourite. Although the packaging is the same, there's really nothing else I can compare to 'Sorbet'. This lipstick is in a different line to 'Sorbet' meaning it has a slightly different formulation, one I really don't get on with. I find this shade paired with this formulation can accentuate flaws in lip shape and the surface of the skin (cracks, uneveness ect.) partly because of it's drying formula and very pale colouring.
The shade of this is partially what makes it so popular amongst the beauty community, often likened to MAC's 'Angel', I find it to be far far to pale and pastel pink toned for a lip colour. Even just dabbing on the colour gives a dreaded 'concealer lips' look a la Barry M's 'Marshmallow'. For this reason I certainly wouldn't repurchase this particular shade however I would buy from the other 'Sheer Natural' line again.
