Those who know me know that any makeup product name to do with history or geography is something I can't resist (I also picked up Paris Rose!)
The tube itself is thin plastic... it actually seems rather flimsy. The design is traditional, but in less of a classy way and more of an old-lady way.
However, the product inside is pure gorgeous.
Cleopatra is the colour of crushed raspberries.
The shade is infinitely flattering. I love it! The texture is light and creamy, and lasts up to 4 hours. It's not drying in the slightest, and fades evenly. Marcelle prides themselves in being hypoallergenic and not using any fragrance in their products. I like this, because other perfectly good lipsticks have been ruined for me by fragrance (looking at you, Rimmel and Maybelline).
A close-up so you can see the gorgeous.
This lipstick is impressively amazing! Next time I'm on the hunt for a lipstick, Marcelle is the first place I'll look.
