Read My Lips

[Image my own].

This season is undoubtedly all about the power lip, whether it's shocking pink, fiery red or deep burgundy. I've been accumulating lipsticks and stains for many years, but most of my favourite products are recent purchases - in the image above, it was Accessorize's Really Red that got me going (£5, from Superdrug or Accessorize). The actual colour is a lot more sheer than the lipstick bullet would have you believe; it required a lot of layering to get substantial coverage, but after that then it somehow managed to stay put for several hours with no re-application.

Other great lip products that I can't live without:

  • Giorgio Armani Lip Ink in #2 (a dark berry-ish shade that isn't too drying) - £19.50, though currently sold out, at Selfridges
  • MAC lipstick in Russian Red (a deep scarlet with staying power) - £13.50
  • GOSH Long Lasting Lip Marker in Pink (a brilliant magenta shade) - £6.99 at Superdrug
  • Topshop Lip Marker in Popsicle (a candy pink for the ultimate girly look) - £6.50
  • Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Lipstick in Bubblegum (Gaga-esque lilac tinged pink that smells amazing) - £2.99 at Boots and Superdrug

Are you addicted to lip products, and do you have any favourites that you're constantly going back to? Get lippy and let me know.


  1. Red lips, the perfect accessory all the time.

  2. It is! I've been leaning towards burgundy for a while, but I keep coming back to red lipstick. It's a keeper.
