Fall for Fall ; a lipstick for all seasons & “Season Lip Anxiety” sufferers!

Fall for Fall ; a lipstick for all seasons

RatingI take it all back I’m just not ready for BERRY yet in fact I’ll confess I’m “seasonally confused”.  I’m not quite ready to switch to full knitwear, I’m still in some t-shirts but I have put my heating on twice now (shh don’t tell).  So what to wear ; on your lips. 

Inside scoop ; If you’re suffering from Seasonal Lip Anxiety SLA : ok yes you got me I DID just make that up…can I recommend middle of the road.  In colour terms.  Don’t go full on Berry Bold : do park the pink & bin the beige : settle for ‘neutral’…DON’T skimp on the texture…

Wicked Wednesday ; how Berry nice to meet you

Berry Berry nice ; I’m head over Autumn leaves in love with BERRY lips

RatingBerry Berry nice ; I’m head over Autumn Leaves in Love with almost ALL the new Berry lipstick shades popping up this season.  So today I’m pretty much recommending BERRY in particular and none exactly specifically!

Inside scoop ; You can’t say Plum Crumble (mmm) without turning a magazine to find the latest greatest Berry shade in fact I’ve spent a happy hour tonight just scrolling through the 100’s of reviews / swatches and deeply richly seriously indulgent plum, berry, red, nearly red, almost plum shades around this season.

So how to wear and choose…Read more

Marvelous Moxie ; Truly-Tuesday Scrumptious LIPS alert!

Tingling Tuesday Marvelous Moxie delivers kiss-able lips from sun up to sundown cheeky Minx!

Rating ; Marvelous Moxie (fab name isn’t it?) is a sumptuous scrumptious totally tingle-tastic tangy range of glide-on lip glosses (and more) from the clever folks @bareMinerals and for me their lip glosses steal the show.

Inside scoop; Truly-scrumptiuos ; Remember Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and their Toot sweets song (if not throwback Tuesday video alert : sing-a-long whilst you read on!).

I digress, so for lips it’s all about the day and the mood for me, I know people who have literally one colour, one brand, one shade, one texture, they wear day in day out, their ‘signature colour’… giant yawn no way. Not me! I’ve always liked variety (men, jewellery, lip gloss, or whatever!). So I tend to match the shade : to the day : to the mood : to the outfit to the texture ; or somewhere in between ; pretty much I experiment.

AGE ALERT ; gloss is NOT only for the super young super cool I’ve been wearing it for years and with the right application / right product it can even last all day.
