Lipstick of the week
I spent last week wearing mainly neutral glossy lips, but with occasional splashes of colour, it just felt right somehow …
Clockwise from top left here, we have:
Clinique Catwalk Coral
Chantecaille Lip Chic in Bourbon Rose
Chantecaille Lip Chic in Tea Rose
MakeBelieve Enhance Lipgloss
Lancome Juicy Tube in Crazy Raspberry
Clinique Chubby Stick in Plumped Up Pink
Guerlain L’Extrait Rouge G in Paresse
Here’s the shades again, this time with flash:
And here are the swatches:
Catwalk Coral is a lovely full-coverage coral shade, with a slightly whitened base. It’s rather difficult to wear (occasionally I feel like it’s wearing me) but I love it regardless. The two Chantecaille Lip Chics are old favourites, of which I’m going to need a back up of both soon. The Makebelieve is a lovely gloss for wearing alone, as it contains a tiny amount of shimmer, drawing attention to the lips without feeling gritty, or making it look like you’ve been snacking on fairy wings. It’s been ages since I wore a Lancome Juicy Tube, and their sticky fruitiness hasn’t altered in the slightest in the intervening years. This isn’t a bad thing, btw … The Clinique Chubby Stick is a limited edition sold in aid of Breast Cancer, it’s a really lovely pink shade, and very cheering. The Guerlain L’Extrait is one of my very favourite things a richly pigmented pink that lasts for hours.
And, here’s the aftermath:
