I also came across them at GFE 2014 and made sure to grab one of the colours I had my eye on for a while, Imperial purple which was $25BDS. As you can see this lipstick is not for the tame, it is definitely as vibrant on the lips as the bullet looks.
Imperial Purple has an interesting swirl of pearlescence running throughout the lipstick, and although it is very matte, the shimmer shows up, making for a very interesting purple colour. I doesn’t take many coats to build this lipstick to full opacity, 2 or 3 for good measure. When they say matte, they were not joking either. This lipstick has absolutely no shine.

The Raw Sugar:I’m very happy with my purchase. I was able to wear this shade very lightly for less of a kapow, while still rocking purple lips, and I wasn’t stared at like a mad person. So that’s a good thing. I also mixed this with other lip colours to make very unique shades. Yet I can wear it full on vibrant and it just looks great! I just wish it wasn’t as drying. I want to try the Allure lip gloss I’ve heard so much praise about and some other of their lipstick shades!
