The two lipsticks belonging to the Eloquence collection are of very similar shades, with Vamp leaning slightly further towards a brown-berry and Majestic pushing a close purple-berry. It's because of this slight variation that both lipsticks have impressed me for different reasons... though in a classic case of cosmetic favouritism, Vamp wins first prize from me! This is mainly due to the slightly warmer appearance on the lips I so crave - speaking as a pale girl (I'm on course to becoming transparent by November), I find even striking colours are better kept on a leash to avoid washing me out entirely.
Eloquence's lip lover shades are packed with peptides and vitamins to 'hydrate and condition your lips'. Once again, I can confirm Mii Cosmetics have stayed true to their word. After exfoliating my lips beforehand, I applied the lipsticks and found not only did my lips remain comfortably hydrated, but the colour also remained intact for hours. In fact if anything it remained too well; I had to pretty rub my lips (and uh, forearm) pretty hard to remove the colour. Great! I'm all set for those harsh winter-walks that threaten to remove 80% of makeup within the first three minutes!

I'll be reviewing the eye products from the Eloquence collection later this month, though in the meantime be sure to let me know what you think of these gorgeous seasonal shades!
