The collection consists of 15 shades of non-drying, high-intensity colour for a bold lip that lasts up to 12 hours. I received a beautiful press pack consisting of four of the 15 shades, and what I would consider a pretty standard spectrum of the popular shades. Included in my collection is "Fire Starter", a bold eye-catching red, "Plum this...

Tresemmé, Hair Care, Shampoo, Conditioner, Beauty Bulletin
