Honey, Honey

IMG_1285First thing’s first.. quick straw poll. At first glance who thought Abba, who thought The Archies? I was going with ‘how he thrills me’ so if you were the former.. you win! Anyway.. I’ve been looking through my collection lately and picking out some old forgotten favourites (in fact there may be a follow up post on more of these) and this jumped out at me. I haven’t worn it in over a year but I loved it so much once upon a time. I occasionally wish I had a modest makeup bag of absolute favourites that I’d never forget but I get so bored so easily the fresh and new keeps me interested. Since digging it out I have worn this near constantly, it’s just such an easy lip colour that wears away to a subtle, natural stain and isn’t at all drying. I can totally see why it was a favourite so long ago. IMG_1273Originally minty in scent these balm stains ‘turn’ quickly so it’s hard to say whether this is past its best or not (I should probably replace it) but it still does the job. For those of you who prefer a low maintenance work look this is the optimum lip product to feel  ‘put together’ when you get there but not so polished that 1. you feel like you LOOK too try hard (it would just look so out of place with my otherwise casual style to be perfectly made up for work) or 2. you need to check and reapply every half an hour to be sure it hasn’t smudged/faded. Just perfect and I’m so glad I rediscovered it!

      never? wow! I feel like they were so hyped years ago everyone must have tried them by now! If you were to I’d suggest this one, the balm stain in Crush ( a deep berry ) or the matte balm in Unapologetic ( an almost neon coral )

    I actually went out and bought a few of the matte balms after you raved about them! Audacious especially! I’ve worn it so much I’ve worn it down to next to nothing! I couldn’t believe something matte could actually be so comfy!

    Oh I hate it when lipsticks “turn”
    I’ve had loads inc Chanel and Bobbi brown do that.

    I don’t care if lipstick is old I’ll wear it anyway. I always see people in decluttering videos throwing away lipstick because it’s two years old. There’s no way I would do that because I have so many that I might as well burn a big pile of money. I love honey though and I really need to stop buying new lip products so I can use my old favourites again.
