I have to admit, when swatched against the skin the formulas look fairly lacklustre, what the swatches do show is how balmy and moisturising the formulas are. Take a moment to look further at the swatches on my lips to see the formula transform into a gorgeous, soft and nourishing lipstick.
Happy pink is a punchy pink shade, it gives your lips a 'just bitten' pop of colour.
Mysterious Mauve is possibly my favourite shade of the three, it's something a little different and gives a gorgeous colour to the lips; it wears on my skin tone similar to Happy Pink, but with mauve undertones.
The inspiration from this shade interestingly came from London Fashion Week 2011, where the catwalks were 'awash with nudes'. Guava is a take on the 'nude' lip with a pop of peachy undertones; it's a very current shade.
Overall I found the Shine Attract lipsticks satisfactory - I really like the wide range of shades and the ultra moisturising formula but there are definite further improvements which could be made such as the wear time. With the present offer price they're definitely worth their retail value, but at their full retail price of £8.50 I'm not so sure I'd be entirely happy with parting with my cash.
