Budget Buy #2: Catrice Sweet Coraline Lipstick

I've really wanted to try a more orange toned, coral lipstick for ages but I was worried it wouldn't suit the green/yellow undertones of my skin.
With this in mind I set myself the task of finding an easy to wear coral shade with a slight orange-ness about it. I didn't want to spend more than €5 in case it really didn't suit so I popped to my nearest Catrice stand as I knew their lipsticks are pretty good quality and very well priced.

The shade that caught my eye straight away was 290 Sweet Coraline.

I swatched it on my hand and it seemed just what I was looking for so I decided to buy it. 
It's a lovely coral orange with a slightly matte finish. It's highly pigmented and has a very creamy consistency.

I found when I first applied it, it was a little... meh but after leaving it for about 15 minutes, it had set and left me with a lovely finish.

As you can see, it does settle into any cracks you may have on your lips so using a lip scrub before applying this is a good idea. 
I think my lips must absorb lip products because this lasted for so long when I wore it on Saturday. It looked as though I'd only just applied it even after having dinner. 
For €4.49 this was a total bargain.
The pictures don't do the colour justice, it's a lovely vibrant shade but not "in your face" so it's very easy to wear.
I have a feeling I'll be reaching for this lipstick every time I do my makeup over the next couple of months.
I hope you enjoyed this review, thanks for stopping by.
