Mae West once said ‘I generally avoid temptaion unless I can’t resist it,’ a fitting quote for this blog post! I fell utterly in love with this limited edition Rockalily lipstick at the ZOMG! bloggers bash and knew I had to have it. It’s limited edition, so I snapped it up as soon as it came online. (I broke my no-buy without even thinking about it until afterwards, I feel awful!)
I didn’t take another picture of the lovely packaging, but you can see it here.

It’s a beautiful bright matte orange-red - somewhat similar to MAC Lady Danger, but with more of a pinky undertone, perhaps. It doesn’t dry down to a matte finish immediately – a quick blot will sort that out if it bothers you - but it’s one of the more comfortable mattes I’ve ever worn.
Rockalily is famous for its fast delivery, which is excellent for when you need a lipstick fix! They are – to me at least – pretty bloody expensive at £14 each, and they’re certainly a bit of a treat for me rather than a regular lippy purchase. I think in my old age I have enough lipstick that I don’t mind forking out for one I really want, as opposed to buying 8,000 cheaper ones. I digress. The quality is fantastic and the colours are gorgeous, if not super unique. I’m a fan at any rate – Hot Rod Red is next on my list when I have a bit of pocket money to spare.
