♫ 陈奕迅 - 十年
I've previously shared my review of the Black Label lipstick in Socialite, so today I'll be showing you another one from the same range - Heather (BLL 182).
As with all the other NYX Black Label lipsticks, it is packaged in a silvery-black box and plastic casing with black lace designs on the sides. Although the plastic feels quite light, it does the job of protecting the lipstick from occasional klutzy situations and major bumps. One of its most user-friendly points is the clear base, which lets you identify individual shades (if you have several of them).
According to the NYX website, Heather is described as a 'neutral mid-tone pink' cream lipstick, which I think is pretty spot-on. It's a gorgeous pink shade that will look lovely on most skin tones. I previously mentioned that the stock photos on the website aren't true to colour, but Heather is an exception, as it is very similar to the colour shown in the website. My camera just couldn't manage to get the exact colour to show up. (T_T)

Most of the Black Label lipsticks tend to show up lighter on my lips (natural light and my camera also washed out some of the colour >_<), but they are actually very opaque even in one swipe.
The formula for this lipstick is impeccable as always; smooth, opaque, and moisturizing. Oh, and don't forget the grape soda scent, which I personally like, but it dissipates after you apply it, so no worries for those who don't like fragrances. It's not very long-lasting though, with average wear of 2-4 hours, depending on your eating/snacking/drinking habits. :P

✓ Pros: Huge variety of colours available, opaque colour, moisturizing, velvety sheen finish, easy to identify individual shades from lipstick base, lovely design on packaging.
✗ Cons: Plastic packaging is very light and might feel slightly 'cheap', has grape soda scent that might not appeal to all, only sold/available online.
