A few weeks ago I picked up this lipstick from the drugstore. It is from a brand that is not much mentioned, it is from the UK and it is called Constance Carroll. Not sure where you can find products from the brand, and here you find mostly lipsticks and blushers, although I know that the brand offers a whole variety of products. I got two lipsticks and I decided to do a first impressions post on this one as it has a very interesting shade, perfect for Spring/Summer.

The shade is a bright coral-peach shade that is very shiny and easy to apply on the lips. The packaging is nothing special but the price is very cheap, so that is to be expected. The finish of this lipstick is Pearlescent, which is a very shiny finish, no lip gloss needed.

It has no distinctive scent to it, which I find is best with lipsticks that are cheap as the alternative can be a very annoying and over-powering scent. I got this for about €1.20 from the drugstore.
Do you own any products from this brand? Do you like this shade?

Great shade, bit too frosted for me –
Constance Carroll is a very old make up brand, I used to use it when I was 11/12 – nearly 15 years ago! xx
I do like the shade but agree on the frosted… great swatch !!
@Nude Obsession: I agree with you on the frost, I usually blot it 🙂 I used to buy these years ago, but only recently have they been available again
@Amalia J: Yes it is too frosted, I blot it 🙂
You know what it reminds me of? It's like a deeper shade of Orgasm by NARS.:D
