Accessorize lipsticks in shades Besotted and Head Over Heels

Hi everyone. 
When I heard about the new Accessorize makeup range I was very excited, but unfortunately my local Superdrug stores and even the bigger ones in Glasgow don't stock most of the products. The only thing I managed to find was a baked blusher, that I reviewed here. The prices are very affordable and I wish I could find the eyeshadow palettes somewhere :(
I received two Accessorize lipsticks recently and I am in love with the unique packaging. It is totally different than anything I have seen before.  I received shades 3- Besotted* and 4-Head Over Heels*. They are both very pigmented and the colours are gorgeous, but if I don't apply a lip balm first they are more on the dry side. The finish they give when applied on their own is matte, but I used a lip balm first to make them work for me. On the first picture you can see me wearing Besotted with a little bit of a Clinique lip gloss on top of it and I think it looks really nice this way. The colour stays on for over 5 hours! I don't think I've ever had a lipstick on for such a long time without reapplying.
Although I am not impressed with the formula on its own, I really enjoy wearing the lipsticks on top of a lip balm or topped up with some lip gloss. They cost £4.99 and you can get them in selected Superdrug stores. Have you tried Accessorize make up? What are your thoughts?
