I am a massive lipstick lover AND I am a massive inner Goth so happiness overcame me when I found out about Collection's (formerly Collection 2000) Gothic Glam range. I wanted to buy all of the lipsticks -and probably will at some point - but I thought I'd be sensible and just get the one, so I chose the most wearable of the three shades.
Like I said Revenge is one of three shades, the other two being Seduction and Scorned. I absolutely love the names of the lipsticks, they have such sexy names! I also really like the packaging, it's also very sleek and sexy - I really feel like Collection have gone all out with the Gothic Glam theme.
Revenge is a very dark, almost wine coloured red shade with dark purple undertones (the photo above doesn't do true justice to how dark the colour is). It's a very intense, in your face colour which is definitely not for the faint-hearted. But it is a gorgeous colour, one that I think a lot of skin tones could pull off - it all just depends on how brave you are! The formula is amazing, it's so creamy and moisturising and does remind me a lot of Mac Cremesheen lipsticks. I found that this lipstick also had a long wear time, I've worn this for Uni and it's lasted a whole day. Though it does come off when eating and drinking, I found that by the end of the day it had left a dark tinted stain on my lips which I found really flattering. The only problem I have with this, and it's a problem I find with many dark lipsticks is that it feathers a little. I would suggest wearing a lip-liner so that it stays where it's meant to!
Above is a not so flattering photograph of my fake smiling face wearing Revenge (sorry I got this from my Instagram and that's why it looks a little over edited but you get the idea). It's such a pretty colour and I do stand by the fact that I think it would suit a lot of skin-tones - I mean if I can pull it off then anyone can! Overall I really, really love this shade! It's perfect for Autumn and Halloween especially if you're feeling brave! And at only £2.99 at Superdrug and Boots you really can't complain on the price!
