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…
