Like most others, I've absolutely fallen for the local brand Shanghai Suzy's amazing lipsticks, so it is always with excitement when the new season's collection is launched. 

L-R: Miss Leah Baby Cocoa, Miss Carla Baby Honey,
Miss Jacqui Pink Lace, Miss Steph Baby Lavender

The Autumn Winter 2016 is called Romance and Strawberry Kisses and is the first range from Shanghai Suzy that is actually made here in Melbourne. Doesn't get much more local than that!
These lipsticks have a whipped formula that makes them incredibly light and weightless on the lips, and therefore very comfortable, so light that you actually would hardly know you're wearing them. And unlike previous collections, this range is all about a more natural and feminie side with a range of nudes, soft pinks and purples.

The collection includes seven new shades;  
  • Miss Carla Baby Honey
  • Miss Leah Baby Cocoa
  • Miss Steph Baby Lavender
  • Miss Jacqui Pink Lace
  • Miss Trish Rose Terracotta
  • Miss Rebecca Winter Rose
  • Miss Eliza Orchid

I have put four of these shades to the test; Miss Steph Baby Lavender, Miss Jacqui Pink Lace, Miss Leah Baby Cocoa and Miss Carla Baby Honey

Miss Leah BABY Cocoa is a re-run of on of the most Shanghai Suzy popular lipsticks, but is now also made in the new Whipped Matte Formula! It is a nude pale dusty pink, that's perfect that complements all skin tones. This shade is very similar to Miss Carla Baby Honey, only slightly darker and dustier
Miss Carla Baby Honey is a taupe-tinted, pastel honey nude, suited best to those with olive undertones in their skin - I don't have an olive skin tone, sadly, and generally feel that very pale and nude lip colours make me look very washed out and sick, and with this being the pales colour in the range, this is unfortunately also my least favourite shade.
Miss Jacqui Pink Lace is the perfect ‘everyday’ pink dusty warm pink and nude tones, this one is ultra-flattering – and the matte finish and natural hue combo gives the impression of fuller lips. This is the darkest of the pink dusty tones, and also my favourite amongst these shades. It reminds me very much of a now discontinued Estee Lauder shade which I wore on my wedding day over a decade ago, so this is sure to become a new favourite.
Miss Steph Baby Lavender is described as a quirky lavender undertone, a pink meets lilac - I do struggle a little identifying the lavender undertone, but that's probably lucky, as otherwise I would probably not have like this shade - I rather see it as a cooler dusty pink shade with a bluish undertone, but regardless it is a gorgeous shade
These lipsticks are so lovely to wear, thanks to their light and moisturising formula, and unlike many other matte formulas on the market, these do not leave the lips with that horrid cracked dried out feeling. They also have a very good wear of several hours before you need to reapply. Also worth mentioning is that they have a lovely sweet strawberry scent and come in a stunning round shiny pop-up packaging .
The shades that I've put to the test are all really lovely, although for me, clear winners are definitely Miss Jacquie Pink Lace followed by Miss Steph Baby Lavender.
