I am a sucker for pretty packaging, so I wasn't surprised when the new range of Neve Cosmetics Dessert a Levres lipsticks caught my eye. The box features pastel colours and cupcakes, so everything a girl loves, right? ;) 

The collection consists of eight wearable shades, all suitable for vegetarians, free from petroleum, silicones and parabens. Neve Cosmetics products are not tested on animals, which makes me love the brand even more. 

  The outer packaging is a lovely box with a cute design allover - the type you want to keep forever :)
The packaging of the lipstick itself is a purple/lilac shade and it is made of plastic. It features gold Neve Cosmetics logo on the side and a gold cupcake on the lid. It is no secret that the collection was inspired by delicious desserts :)

The formula of the lipsticks is enriched with shea butter and vegetable oils, to keep your lips soft and nourished and has a delicate scent of sweet cakes :) Yummy! 

Dessert a Levres lipsticks are very pigmented and easy to apply. They glide on like a dream and feel very comfortable on the lips. The consistency is similar to a lip balm, but  gives the coverage of a lipstick. Perfect! They last on my lips for 3-4 hours, before I have to reapply.

I was lucky to receive three gorgeous shades from the collection and you can see detailed swatches of each one, on the photos below. Peach Macaron is a beautiful peachy shade, Mousse Framboise is a bright fuchsia pink and Cherry Pie is a bright red. I am very pleased with all of them and adore the way they look on my lips. They add a lot of shine, reflect light beautifully and fade evenly (with darker shades leaving a subtle wash of colour after fading). 

My overall score is 10/10 and I love everything about the new Neve lipsticks. The formula is amazing and the design looks really pretty and girly. I would recommend Dessert a Levres lipsticks to those who like highly moisturising formulas, great pigmentation and cruelty free products.

You can buy the full collection from Beauty Chamber, who stock Neve Cosmetics and offer competitive prices.

  16. i like the lipstick colors, but the packaging is really getting on my nerves.. it looks like limecrime meeting etude house. i don't even know who released the products/the packaging first, so i don't know who's 'copying' who, but this just looks so weird!

    1. I love the packaging and it doesn't look weird in my opinion. The colour reminds me of Lime Crime, but the shape is totally different and the writing is a different colour. I don't think they were trying to copy LC or Etude House.

  17. There are so many different kinds of lipstick packaging that you can't even try to compare things anymore. You can only be so unique when it comes to packaging. With that being said, I like the packaging and I think it's really cute!

  18. LOVE the peach one!! Love them all!

  19. All these pictures are so cute... Makes me want them!
    The colors are also very nice,

  20. I love the packaging& the shades looks great!
