To say I have no need for a Day of the Week lipstick set would be a mild understatement – I probably have enough lipsticks here for a Days of the Year lipstick set, if not eighteen months – but nonetheless when this turned up last week I laughed. It’s great.
Containing seven not-quite-full-size, but also not-quite-miniature lipsticks, one (you might have guessed) for each day of the week, this is both witty and fun.
The shades are (l-r):
Sweet Sunday – A soft taupe-pink mid-nude.
Monday Mojo – a cool fuchsia with blue micro-shimmer
Take On Tuesday – A pink-nude
Welcome Wednesday – warm caramel
Throwback Thursday – Baby Pink
Finally Friday – A deep, slightly warm pink
Sassy Saturday – deep warm red.
It’s a cute and clever gift idea, the lipsticks will cover most colourings and most occasions. They’re all in the Soft Shine formulation, which is a mid-coverage but non-drying formula. Whilst not totally sheer, they’re shiny and easy to wear:
And they’re only £35 for seven lipsticks. What finer present for a lipstick lover (even a lipstick lover with more lipsticks than she knows what to do with) than that?
