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…

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

RatingBerry Berry nice ; So following on from my berry nice lipstick post yesterday from the feedback I’m sensing we’re liking the juicy-theme which is great!  So if you’re going all-in for plum like me I’d recommend teaming your berry lips WITH a berry blush ; but going a little lighter on the rest.

Wicked Wednesday ; how Berry nice to meet you

It’s T time – Treat Try Tummy Tea TODAY!

It’s 5 T time : that stands for TREAT TRY TUMMY TEA TODAY!

Rating ; Tuesday = T-Time that stands for T for Treat Try tummy Tea; ok not STRICTLY a beauty product BUT I always feel if you look after the inside then the outside looks a bit better and certainly you FEEL better. So Tuesday’s Top TREAT is TEA. Herbal of course, high quality bien sur, beautifully designed but of course…

Inside scoop ; They say beauty is skin deep I say dig deeper TEA could just be the cure for all Tuesday ills and more.  And it doesn’t come more tasty tempting and tea-like than the quirky range from T2.  Discovered – well ok lured into – their store in Oxford Street I find myself T-eed up and ready to rave about T2.
