Cult Japanese brand DHC are well know for their skincare products and one of which I love is their cleansing oil. They've now added make up to their line and this sees the release of the Premium Lipstick GE Collection. These lipsticks come in 6 shades and are encased with flower embossed gold and silver packaging. They're not only worn for the colour benefits but also contain age-defying ingredients to make lips look and feel their best - Macadamia Nut oil and Olive oil are there to moisturise the lips, while Collagen helps plump up fine lines and make lip look fuller. Vitamin A and Geranium help protect and condition the lips and deliver a glossy moisturising sheen. 
I have three of the shades which annoyingly have numbers and no names on the packaging (names and numbers on their website), but are all exactly what you'd expect them to be considering their ingredients. They're buttery in formula and apply beautifully, gliding over the lips with ease and leaving a moisturising trail of pigmented lipstick behind. As you can see from the pictures above they offer a satin sheen to the lips and in terms of Mac lipsticks they have the pigmentation of a Crème Sheen and the glossy finish of a Lustre.  

RS105(First Blush) is a dusky rose nude shade with hints of pink and caramel that add interest to the lips and a great day time natural colour. This will look great on most skin tones although will come off more nude on darker skin.
RS107( Rich Raspberry) is as the name suggests, a deep purple pinky shade that will be fantastic in Autumn/Winter. This shade will complement most, if not all skin tones and is a more wearable deeper shade.
BE111(Rose Gold) is another natural shade, this time more of a true nude colour with a peachy undertone. I think this will look great teamed up with a smokey eye and a must have shade for all you nude loving lipstick gals out there.

What do you think to DHC's newest Collection? The release date is set for 1st August and are available Online, and at selected Selfridges and BeautyMART stores.
*Pr Samples. All thoughts are of course my own.
