I owe this lipstick purchase to my blogging friend Fee from MakeupSavvy. It’s been a firsm favourite of hers for some time and when the festive season rolls around it’s always top of her list of recommendations so this year I finally bit the (lipstick) bullet and bought it. The finish is satin and it applies beautifully, very opaque but as with all brights such as this a lip liner is required to prevent bleeding!
The packaging is classic and could definitely stand to be updated but there’s something almost vintage about it so perhaps if they leave it a few years it will look like it was designed that way.. it definitely wouldn’t have looked out of place on my Grandma’s dresser when I was a child. As reds go it’s in my favourite pinky toned category, very flattering against my skin and much more so than its pillarbox counterparts but over the next 12 days I will show you a few variants. They will mostly be reds/brights because after all this is a Christmas series but I will throw in some more wearable winter shades too.. just don’t expect any nudes.
